Will UK basketball experience growing pains early on?

Kentucky basketball has absolutely dominated inferior opponents in the preseason. It’s hard to tell what the team’s weaknesses are right now, but ESPN’s Jay Bilas believes that defense could be a struggle early on for the team.

“The main thing, especially with a young team, is going to be defense,” said Bilas. “Can they play high level defense without fouling? Can they protect the rim? Can they limit opponents to one shot consistently? I think they’re capable of that.”

The KSTV crew discussed Bilas’ comments and if they expect the basketball team to experience some growing pains early on in the season.
