We are back in Rupp Arena for redemption following last Thursday’s embarrassment, and ready to see the Cats get a W in tonight’s friendly matchup with the guys next door.
Kentucky will start Alex Poythress tonight for the first time all season, but Marcus Lee is expected to log minutes off the bench. Poythress will be surrounded by the usual cast: Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, Jamal Murray and Skal Labissiere.
Speaking of Labissiere, lots of eyes will be on him tonight to see how aggressive he is inside. Tonight’s a night he needs to have a 10+ rebound performance to prove he can do it.
Eastern’s three-point shooting is another aspect to watch. They launch the ball very, very well.
Let’s talk about it below.
