In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Monmouth at Kentucky.
Kentucky is on a 48-game home winning streak and this will be their 6th of 7 straight home games for the Wildcats. The Wildcats’ defense is showing inconsistency and the players need to gain some experience if they are to compete for anything this year. The team struggled to beat by a large margin their last 3 opponents simply because the defense isn’t keeping the opponents away from the basket. The most concerning thing is that they are allowing 10 3-pointers per game.
Monmouth doesn’t have many offensive weapons to threaten Kentucky and this might be good news for the Wildcats. Leading scorer Deion Hammond is averaging just 12.9 points per game and he is the only double-digit scorer in the team. Point guard Nick Rutherford is averaging 6 points and 2.4 assists per game and I simply don’t think that performances like his will be enough for the Hawks to compete in this one.
I believe that this is a lopsided affair and Kentucky will finally keep their opponents below 65 points. The Wildcats have the better players and they will surely deliver and they will also cover the spread.
