UK Basketball | Areas of focus ahead of the Louisville game

Kentucky doesn’t have much time to soak in their win over North Carolina on Saturday, as they now get ready to face No. 10 Louisville on Wednesday at 7 pm at the KFC Yum! Center.

Coach Calipari put his players to work today, going through three “sessions” (or maybe four, if he got his Christmas wish).

Either way, this team must be prepared for a physical match-up that will likely have a much different pace from the North Carolina game. Kentucky flies up and down the court, averaging 95.2 points per game (3rd in the country), while Louisville slows down the pace, averaging only 78.5 points per game (90th in the country).

What does the team need to focus on ahead of Wednesday’s game? We discuss here:
