College Basketball: Western Kentucky is the pick of the Sun Belt Conference coaches to win the league as the pre season poll came out today. WKU junior guard TJ Price was named first team All Sun Belt, with George Fant named to the second team. The Hilltoppers play their first exhibition game Saturday afternoon against Campbellsville University and open the season at Wichita State November 12th.
Kentucky coach John Calipari took to the internet today to talk more about last night’s Blue-White scrimmage. Calipari said fans were getting a little carried away with the scrimmage and said Kentucky could be a good team and possibly a really good team.
Calipari added every team the Wildcats play will be more experienced and execute harder than Kentucky. Calipari also said Kentucky has to play harder and be a great defensive team to have a chance. The Wildcats face Transylvania in their first exhibition game Friday night, with pre game coverage at 4:30 on Lite 98.7.
