How about this for a stat: Kentucky now owns the United States of America.
Following their 96-58 victory over North Dakota, the Kentucky Wildcats have now beaten a team from every state in America. Yep, all 50 states.
Before tonight, the Peace Garden State (yes, that’s their nickname) was the lone state from which the Wildcats had never played an opponent.
Now, there are only five states that Kentucky has played a team from just once: Delaware, Vermont, New Mexico, South Dakota, and North Dakota.
In more from United States/Kentucky Wildcats history, Tennessee is the state that Kentucky has played in more games, won more games, and lost more games than any other state. Yes, even their own state of Kentucky.
Also, Connecticut is now the only state with a winning record against Kentucky, edging the Cats 4-3 in the overall series. So if the Cats schedule Connecticut Technical Institute of Art and Connecticut State University Tech next season, you know why.
Take that, North Dakota.
