Kentucky found a couple of cupcakes to beat up on for exhibition games, but no one saw this kind of beat down coming. The Wildcats hung 156 points on Asbury and only allowed 63 total for almost a 100-point differential! It looks like this Kentucky team might already be in midseason form.
Eight players for Kentucky scored in double figures and they were led by Mychal Mulder’s 20 points and 11 boards in only 19 minutes. No one else played more minutes than that during the night and just about everyone on the bench got some time in the game before the real regular season starts.
Forward Derek Willis had 14 points to go with three blocks, De’Aaron Fox had 25 points and four assists, Malik Monk had 15 points and Kiwi big man Tai Wynyard also chipped in 10 points. Sacha Killeya-Jones had 13 points, Isaiah Briscoe had 11 points and Wenyen Gabriel had 16 points.
