The Kentucky Wildcats basketball team went 1-1 last week yet still remained the eighth best team in the country. A lot of that has to do with the fact that there is still a ton of potential on this team, and that potential was undeniable, even in the loss to Duke. Alex Poythress was this week’s recipient of the SEC player of the week award.

Alex Poythress showed the nation that he indeed is for real with two jaw-dropping performances. In the loss to Duke, Poythress went for 20 points and eight rebounds. In the win over Lafayette, he went for 22 points and five rebounds.

Last week Kyle Wiltjer was named the SEC player of the week. Keep it going Cats.
