On Friday night the Wildcats will be in for another tough test that will show how much this team has improved since the Michigan State game hopefully. The Cats need to start off strong against the Bears as they have the ability to score a lot of points in a hurry. Baylor has a lot of returning players that could cause problems for Kentucky such as sophomore forward Isaiah Austin, and senior 3 points specialist Brady Heslip who John Calipari knows a lot about from past experiences against this team.
Baylor has the pieces of a very good team at 7-1 with their only loss being to Syracuse but I don’t see the Cats letting another game like the Michigan State game happen again in the near future. With a rough stretch of games coming up for Cal’s team this will be one to hopefully put in the win column and keep our streak alive. The matchup to watch in this one will be Isaiah Austin against Cauley-Stein or Randle whomever they choose Austin to guard as it will be a battle throughout.
