Another day, another blowout for the Cats, as they put away the Puerto Rico Reserves 93-57. Alex Poythress led scorers with 15 points and 10 rebounds, followed by Marcus Lee with 14.
The Cats got off to a sluggish start, but soon found their stride behind the second platoon, aka Team 1A. By halftime, the game was already out of hand, leading to a dunk fest in the second half, with Calipari getting so excited during his interview with Jay Bilas and Jimmy Connors that he said “hump ditty ditty.”
If things couldn’t get better for the Cats, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist walked into the building during the second half, a total surprise for fans and the team. MKG told the crew on the radio that he decided to come down after watching the games yesterday, and will be with the team at Atlantis until Thursday.
As Jay Bilas put it at the end of the broadcast, “the Kentucky Wildcats are legit.” Hump ditty ditty.
