The UK Wildcats held their annual Blue White scrimmage Friday night and early indications look like they are going to be good, I mean really good. They are deep, talented and look like they are far ahead of of fans expectations. UK once again will have their fans looking for their 9th title. Kentucky is deeper than past years and loaded with talent.
Briscoe, Monk, Milder, Hawkins and Fox give the Cats some scoring on the perimeter with Fox running the point guard as good as any UK point guard in recent memory. Yeah, it was just a scrimmage, but Fox looked comfortable leading this talented bunch.
On the interior you have a very good group in Bam, Jones, Gabriel, and Willis, although Willis is an outside assassin. Bam is a beast inside and Jones showed a nice touch on a couple of jumpers. Gabriel looked good and worked hard on the glass and was solid on defense.

In think looking at this team, most opponents will pack it inside and make UK beat them from outside. If tonight was any indication, that may be a huge mistake. With Fox, UK has a guard that will break down defenses and score at will.
As with every new season, expectations are high. UK fans will expect nothing less than a title run. Go Big Blue!!!
