Kentucky not only has won three straight games, but it is coming off its most dominating game of the season against Missouri going into Saturday night’s showdown at Kansas.
“Kansas is a great team. Now that this game is over, tomorrow we’ll get ready for Saturday,” Kentucky freshman Isaiah Briscoe said after the Missouri win.
He also said UK had been focusing on itself, not Kansas, even though a win would certainly boost UK’s NCAA seeding resume.
Another freshman, Skal Labissiere, says coaches have stressed creating every game the same whether its Kansas or Missouri.
“We’re just going to go out there and play with energy. Do what we do best, which is being a great defensive team and everything else will fall into place,” Labissiere said.
Kentucky coach John Caliipari will talk about Kansas this afternoon at his media opportunity. However, he did briefly mention the Kansas game earlier this week on the SEC coaches teleconference.
“The challenge for us to go to Kansas is really gonna be difficult. We’re just trying to get guys to just think about one thing: Continuous improvement. It doesn’t mean by 100 percent. Let’s just try to get better each day and we’re doing that,” Calipari said.
