Kentucky Wildcats basketball notes:
The top three scorers are only sophomores, which might explain some of the inconsistency problems that have haunted the Wildcats this season. That trio of Randolph Morris, Rajon Rondo and Joe Crawford are talented and can explode for a huge game at any time. The frontcourt is amazingly deep and experienced with Bobby Perry, Shreay Thomas, Rekalin Sims, Shagari Alleyne and Lukasz Obrzut. None of them are go-to players, but they can all fill minutes and that is important come tournament time. Rondo will be the key if Kentucky wants to win a game or two. The guard leads the team in assists and rebounding and must dictate tempo and keep the team under control. If it’s a close game, don’t bet on Kentucky. The Wildcats are hovering around the 65% mark from the free throw line.
