Soon-to-be No. 1 Kentucky took down a tough Michigan State squad on Tuesday night and has looked pretty good in its other games as well. The Wildcats should face some early season tests in Arizona State, UCLA, North Carolina and Louisville before hitting the SEC slate.
College basketball expert and analyst Dino Gaudio thinks that this team is good enough to go undefeated in conference play:
Last year’s team featured three NBA draft picks and they lost five games in the conference. Even though John Calipari brought in more five-star recruits they still have to learn how to play together and do it against another team twice this year (in some cases). This particular team is also not a very good three-point shooting one so that could be the downfall one SEC game this season.
