Some pre-game thoughts before UK-Baylor

Here at Rupp Arena for Kentucky-Baylor. Since the game is being nationally televised by CBS, I won’t have as many updates. Instead, please feel free to ask me questions on twitter. I’ll have a halftime update/analysis, plus the usual post-game package.

It will be interesting to see how Kentucky reacts today after Thursday night’s loss at Notre Dame. John Calipari has been critical of his team’s competitiveness and will to win in South Bend. How will they respond to that? Is there a true leader on this team? If so, who?

You knew last year that with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Company, competitiveness was not an issue. And there were older players on the team in Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb and, of course, Darius Miller, a senior. Julius Mays is a senior on this year’s team, but he’s not a senior at Kentucky.

And, my guess is that we will see more of Ryan Harrow on the point today. Your thoughts?
