It did not start out well, but with four minutes left in the first half, Kentucky finally clicked into gear and started playing basketball. With Hofstra within three, the Cats went on a 12-0 run to close the half and kept the good times rolling in the second half, beating Hofstra by a final score of 96-73.

Malik Monk led all scorers with 20 points, followed by Isaiah Briscoe with 19, De’Aaron Fox with 15, and Bam Adebayo with 14. Derek Willis had eight rebounds, followed by Bam with seven.

We’ll have plenty more this afternoon. Until then, look over the box score:

    It’s going to take a lot better defense to beat UNC and Louisville. Yea they rolled but letting Hoftstra hang 73 on you isn’t great. Hopefully they were just distracted by finals and Christmas. I didn’t get to see the UCLA game but I’ve seen all the rest and thought this was the most inconsistent I have seen them in both effort and their decision making as a whole.
