The line is out for Kentucky basketball’s season opener and the Cats are favored by 22 points over Albany.
I know very little about Albany, but I do know it returns two-time America East Tournament Most Outstanding Performer, Peter Hooley, for a fifth year. Hooley will lead a veteran Great Danes squad that finished the 2014-15 season ranked No. 13 in the College Insider Mid-Major Poll.
Albany is No. 2 this year in the America East Preseason Poll, with two first-place votes and 55 total points, behind Stony Brook.
