Routed: #1 Kentucky Crushes #5 Kansas, 72-40
UK Athletics - The River City News
Kentucky coach John Calipari made one simple adjustment to his game plan Tuesday night.
He scrapped the zone.

The Wildcats didn’t need it. Instead, a fierce man-to-man defense got No. 5 Kansas out of sync and No. 1 Kentucky ran away with its most impressive win of the season- a 72-40 victory in the State Farm Champions Classic.

“We kind of bum-rushed them a little bit and every time they looked there were more tanks coming over the hill,” Calipari said. “It wasn’t substitutes, it was reinforcements. It kind of gets to you a little bit.”

It also elicited exactly the kind of reaction Calipari wanted from his team.

After Kentucky (3-0) won its first two games by 40 and 19 points, they dominated Kansas despite having only two players reach double figures. Dakari Johnson had 11 points, Andrew Harrison had 10 and Willie Cauley-Stein finished with seven points and 10 rebounds.

But they didn’t need big-time scorers Tuesday.
