Kentucky Wildcats vs Northern Kentucky Norse: Quick Game Recap

The game may as well have been over before it started. After a relatively slow start, the Cats came out roaring. Dominating from about the halfway point of the first half on, this version of the Kentucky Wildcats flexed their muscles in a big way. Leading the way was Julius Randle, who had 11 points and 10 rebounds in the first half alone, setting up a 48-22 halftime lead. In the second half, the team came out and put their foot on the throats of the Norse players. The team ran through everything Northern Kentucky threw at them, pushing through them with their size advantage. While the 93-63 win showed the Cats sheer dominance, this alone was not the most impressive stat of the day. That would go to the 51-23 rebounding margin they accumulated throughout the game. Leading the way in this front was, yet again, Julius Randle. He finished the game with 22 points, 14 rebounds, and 3 assists. The Harrison twins were the only other two in double digit points, as Aaron scored 16 and Andrew scored 13. The fact that no one else scored in double figures shows just how balanced this team is. Kentucky now turns their attention to the matchup with the #2 Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday in Chicago.
