TX-Arlington vs. Kentucky Pre-View

Sunday night saw Kentucky hold an opponent to a record (Kentucky record) low points in the shot clock era when they allowed only 28 points from Montana State. It was a hard game to watch as Kentucky just dominated on the defensive end of things. If the Cats had shot the ball even remotely well, they would have won by a hundred with ease.

Now it's on to the next game which will be tomorrow night when UT-Arlington comes to town. The Mavericks come into the game with a 3-1 record with their only loss coming at the hands of University of Buffalo (yes the same Buffalo Kentucky played last week) 74-68. UT-Arlington has played another familiar opponent in Grand Canyon which they beat by a score of 66-64.

Once again, I know absolutely nothing about UT-Arlington, so lets take a look at the vitals of the Mavericks...

                                                       SCHOOL HISTORY:

EST:  1895


LOCATION:  Arlington, Texas

COLORS: Blue/Orange/White

NICKNAME: Mavericks

MASCOT:  Blaze


Now, let's take a look at their roster...

Now, here's a look at their team and individual stats to give you an idea of what they bring to the table...

I'll be honest here, Kentucky should handle this team with ease. I'm not even going to pretend that I believe this game should even be close. Could the Mavericks upset Kentucky? Sure, anything is possible, but let's be honest, if that happens it's because the Cats played so horribly bad that they deserved to beat.

                                                             SERIES HISTORY:

The Cats and Mavericks have met only once in history and that was last season in the Keightley Classic where Kentucky won in convincing fashion 105-76.

Tip time is set for 7pm and will be aired on the SEC Network...
