The Kentucky Wildcats defeated Vermont by a final score of 73-69, moving the team to 2-0 on the year before hitting the road to take on Kansas in Chicago on Tuesday.
PJ Washington, Quade Green, and Sacha Killeya-Jones spoke to the media afterward to highlight the good and bad that came from the close win over the Catamounts.
PJ Washington talked about his strong comeback game, how the Wildcats managed to hold off the last shot, and how much of an impact Quade Green has as the lead point guard.
Green discussed his big second half, Coach Calipari’s trust in him, the Kansas game, and what it was like to pull out the close victory.
Killeya-Jones talked about his improvements under Coach Cal, what it’s like to be a Kentucky Wildcat, making clutch free throws, and what the team as a whole needs to do to top the Jayhawks.
It may have been too close for comfort for fans, but the Wildcats certainly seemed to appreciate a close matchup early in the season against an NCAA Tournament team.
