“It was OK,” Andrew Harrison said of Kentucky’s intensity. “We could have played with a little more energy and that’s on me, getting my teammates ready and keeping them energized and keeping them in the game.”
It’s hard to stay energized when you are up by 40 points. Andrew led Kentucky with 16 points as the Wildcats beat the Antelopes 85-45 on Friday’s season opener.
Despite the dominance, Coach Cal was still upset about the effort in the 2nd half.
“The first half, it was good,” said Calipari. “The second half was not good. We never got in rhythm. We never made extra passes, so we kind of reverted. But I expect some of that early.”
Aaron Harrison had 7 points, Trey Lyles had 14 in just 17 minutes and Ballislife All-American Tyler Ulis had 5 points and 2 assists in 16 minutes.
