MOREHEAD STATE EAGLES (3-1)
NOVEMBER 21, 2012 – 7:00 PM
RUPP ARENA – LEXINGTON, KY
KENTUCKY LEADS SERIES 9-0
11/13/2009: KENTUCKY 75 Morehead State 59
It’s that time of the year when the schedule makers get the cupcakes out of the oven and the #8 Kentucky Wildcats prepare for a feast … or is it? Morehead State brings former Unforgettable Sean Woods and a 3-1 record into Rupp Arena for this never ending Barclays Classic set of games. The Eagles have already beaten 2012 NCAA Team LIU and fellow UK victim Lafayette, plus hung 100 points on Alice Lloyd.
This will be the tenth meeting between the two teams and the ninth straight time that Kentucky has been ranked in the top ten. Kentucky used early season wins over Morehead State in 1995 and 1997 enroute to national titles in 1996 and 1998. Hopefully, Kentucky can duplicate this with a 2013 title run. Morehead is in something of a rebuilding phase, having lost a lot of talent from last years team, but Sean Woods is the right coach to have. Let’s meet the Eagles.
