The Kentucky Wildcats take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at 5 pm EST on ESPN
Kentucky fans are ready for the team to be one. They need to find their groove. It's a familiar dance played on the court by our beloved Wildcats. Today could be the breakout day. The day it all comes together. The day shots are made and a team is born. Let's do a quick recap.
As Kentucky takes on Georgia Tech, both have two losses this season. Kentucky is 1-2 and Georgia Tech is 0-2. The Wildcats played better offensive ball against the Kansas Jayhawks compared to their lackluster shooting game against the Richmond Spiders. It wasn't until the second half that the Jayhawks showed the maturity to close the deal. With a mostly freshman starting line-up, with the exception of senior transfer Olivier Sarr, the players will need to 'grow into' a more cohesive team (which is not uncommon for Kentucky season openers).
As mentioned, Georgia Tech has played two games this season and have lost both games. One of the team's top players is senior forward Moses Wright who is averaging 25.5 points a game. Kentucky top scorers after three games include guard BJ Boston. averaging 15.7 points, forward Olivier Sarr averaging 11 points, and guard Terrance Clarke averaging 11 points. All three players have minutes in each of the three games.
The Yellow Jackets are playing an offensive game and have been putting a lot of points on the board without yielding results. If Kentucky can shoot the ball, defensively they are sound resulting in a win today for the Wildcats.
Predictions for the starting line-up for Kentucky include Devin Askew, Terrance Clarke, BJ Boston, Olivier Sarr, and Isaiah Jackson.
