Colin Borchert and his tattoo sleeve are in for a long night tonight against Kentucky. Borchert has the assignment of defending Julius Randle, something no one deserves, and he knows it’ll take more than just him. Borchert said the biggest thing Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray is saying this week is to help out on defense, especially with Randle. They plan to double team him every time he touches the ball, as expected.
Sophomore wing Fred Thomas is confident, probably because he isn’t matched up with Randle. He said he feels like Mississippi State is a lot more mature from when they visited Rupp a year ago and he believes the Bulldogs can get a win tonight if they all play together.
“I feel like we ready for this game,” said Thomas.
Um, yeah. Good luck with that, fellas.
