Balanced chemistry leads to more fun and smiles on the floor

Last year there never seemed to be much to smile about both by the players or by the fans. This season already looks to be a polar opposiste.

There were plenty of smiles on the floor while playing a very uptempo game.

Players smile off the court and images shown on social media and TV last night show them having fun together and obviously found an early connection with each other.

As the season goes along this comraderee will pay dividends, unlike last year when they could do very little to dig themselves out of tough loses, poor play and just a lot of frowns and funk for five months.

Just watch the end of the first half as three straight baskets had the players celebrating each other.

Will this be a big factor to this year’s success? It certainly can’t hurt and is a welcome sight.

Kentucky will be back on the floor on Friday when Kentucky Wesleyan comes to Rupp to give the Cats thier first actual scrimage.
