The Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team held their pre-Tennessee interviews today as they prepare to face the Volunteers on Saturday at noon on CBS.

Here is what the players and coaches had to say about the matchup:

Alex Poythress


On how he views his improvement …
“I just look at it as I’m going harder in practice. I’m just doing things I’m capable of doing.”

On being in better shape …
“Yeah, I feel like I’m in way better shape. I feel like I can run more for days. The treadmill doesn’t affect me as much no more. I guess it helps me more. It’s just helped me really.”

On getting comfortable coming off the bench …
“Yeah, I’m fine with it. To be honest with you it doesn’t matter. There’s no difference really, coming off the bench or starting.”

On being better defensively than a year ago and how …
“Yeah, I’m just taking defense more personal this year, just trying to stop people, trying to guard people, help my teammates on the weak-side rebounds, weak-side blocks, trying to be in position more.”
