BOXSCORE: Nick Richards leads the way with 19 in victory over Bahamas

Kentucky ran away with an 85-61 victory over the Bahamas National Team, where we saw a little bit of everything (except three-point shooting) from the Cats.

Nick Richards led the way with 19 points on 6-7 shooting, along with three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal.

Tyler Herro wasn’t too far behind with 16 points on 6-11 shooting, three rebounds, and two steals. He showed off some silky-smooth shooting to get the Cats out of a temporary scoring slump.

Keldon Johnson added 11 points, while PJ Washington scored 10.

Despite scoring just seven points, Ashton Hagans stole the show with a game-high three steals and five rebounds. He was a pest on defense, attacking when he saw the opposition get tired. People said he was a dog when he first got to Kentucky, but if this game is any indication, the BBN should be very excited.

Reid Travis struggled offensively, scoring just four points on 2/9 shooting, but he was a rebounding machine, finishing with 14 on the night.

Here is the official boxscore:

Go Cats!

      And shoutout to “Brady” Calipari for the three, lol.

      (I think it says “Jemari” Baker, too.)

    If nick gives us this kind of production with this team, I like our chances at #9

      Must shoot way better than we did tonight if you are dreaming of #9.

    Everyone is giving Reid a critical review. Guy had 14 rebounds and 8 points on a poor night of shooting in 20 minutes. This guy is our stud for the season.

      Reid looked out of place but first game im sure he knows it’s a learning exp and not critical. He must earn trust and find his role last night was on the glass

    Quade, Keldon Johnson, and Reid Travis were abysmal shooting the ball tonight; but all in all it was a solid, if very sloppy, win……albeit over a less-talented team.

    If anything Reid Travis showed what it means to be experienced. Shot not falling. No problem. I’ll hit the boards

    Quade and Quickley can’t shoot. Hagans and Herro should probably be the guards if the other 2 don’t turn it around.
