It was a bit tougher early than expected, but in the end, Kentucky rolled to a 104-75 win over LIU Brooklyn at Rupp Arena. Mark my words, LIU will be a NCAA team come march and they have a very solid starting five, which as I expected would give Kentucky problems for a bit. This was a good win for Kentucky as the core of this LIU team was down to Michigan State by just 5 points in the NCAA Tournament last year.
Our very own MonsterMash was at the game on press row and he had tons of post game video from Coach Calipari and the players:

Evenually I crossed over to corporate America and am now self employed .... but I've always been a sportswriter at heart.
