The fourth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats will welcome in the Cleveland State Vikings into Rupp Arena on Monday to see if they can keep their winning streak going.
As expected, star freshman Julius Randle has been the backbone and the lifeblood of this team for John Calipari. So far in his short collegiate career, Randle is averaging over 20 points per game and 13.4 rebounds. The scary part is that he’s only going to continue to get better as the season grows longer.
Cleveland State comes in with a record of 3-2 and having split their last two outings. After a loss to Eastern Michigan, the Vikings rebounded the other night by convincingly defeating Robert Morris.
They’ll need every weapon in the arsenal, though, if they’re going to pull this one off. If they want to do that, they’ll also need to shoot a little better than 42% from the field, which is what they’re averaging so far early on this year.
