TV: ESPN Game Plan

The Kentucky Wildcats take the floor with the unbeaten Eastern Michigan Eagles in the Keightley Classic.

Eastern Michigan hasn't been given much of a thought in the MAC but may be their 5-0 start will open some eyes. The competition hasn't been fierce but winning and Eastern Michigan basketball haven't been real close friends. The Eagles stayed perfect with a 74-69 victory over Texas-Arlington as they took a seven point lead with them in to the break and held serve the rest of the way. UTA shot a solid 47.7% compared to the Eagles 41.5% but what the Eagles lacked in accuracy was made up with a few more foul shots and nine more looks at the basket courtesy of 15 Mavericks giveaways. Ray Lee kept EMU perfect behind a game high 38 points with Darell Combs adding 18 and Karrington Ward eleven.

Another season and some more young faces and Kentucky is ranked in the top five and ready to compete for the National Championship. The 5-1 Wildcats only loss was to Michigan State with four wins coming by double figures followed by an unexpected cloes bout with Cleveland State that was 'just' a 68-61 decision. You can't win every game by 20 points and the Vikings showed why in a virtually even boxscore except for free throws where UK held a 27-14 advantage which was the game with both teams hitting at 36% from the floor. Julius Randle was the star of the game with a 15 point, 15 rebound performance with Andrew Harrison adding 12 points and five helpers while Willie Cauley-Stein and and Aaron Harrison each tossed in eleven points.

I am going with Kentucky because they have the athletes and this is vitually a home game. The flip side is I don't think they are good as they could be because they only have players for a year before leaving for the NBA so big spreads are always a danger for a team that hasn't played together...
