College football games on television today:
Big Blue Links for Saturday:
Kentucky freshman Devin Booker, who came to campus with the reputation of being a knock-down shooter, had struggled with this shot before Tuesday night against Boston.
He found the range against the Terriers, however, making four of his six three-point attempts, as well as contributing seven assists to the Cats 89-65 victory over Boston U.
Running some numbers on UK’s 24-point win over Boston:
UK’s Aaron Harrison gives a lot of credit to Boston University, which trailed Kentucky just 46-44 in the second half before the Cats pulled away. Aaron also talks about the play of Devin Booker and Dominique Hawkins’ lob dunk.
Kentucky sophomore Dominique Hawkins got his first college start on Friday, subbing for Alex Poythress, who missed the game with an illness. Hawkins scored seven points in 16 minutes. He also had a nice dunk off a lob in which the former Madison Central had to go high to get the pass.
Kentucky coach John Calipari said he expected his team to have a letdown after Tuesday night’s win over Kansas. Still, he didn’t think his team showed much fight in the first half before turning it on the second half to beat Boston University 89-65.
