Probable Starting Lineups:
Watch John Calipari and read what Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy had to say about tonight’s matchup.
Kennedy’s impressions of Kentucky: “Another outstanding team, a team that’s going to be in the conversation for the Final Four, and readily so, throughout the season. It’s amazing to me what (John Calipari) is able to do year in and year out of taking a bunch of new guys and defining them into the role of a team, and an outstanding team. He’s done that again this year. The thing that jumps off the page when you see Kentucky and when you see them in live action is their team speed. This is my 11th year, so I’ve see a lot of great Kentucky teams and a lot of great Kentucky players. I don’t know if I’ve seen one as fast as this team. De’Aaron Fox, I don’t remember seeing. He’s a Texas kid, and unless I was recruiting someone on his AAU team, I don’t know a reason I would have seen him other than happenstance. I didn’t really study his game until he got to Kentucky. He just jumps off the screen with his speed in the open floor with the ball. If you’re fast on tape, that means you’re going to be doubly fast in person. De’Aaron Fox’s speed and the way Malik Monk has shot the ball and Bam’s (Adebayo) strength inside, they just got a plethora of weapons.” Source
