State Farm Champions Classic: Kentucky, Kansas face off

David Padgett nervous as he makes debut for embattled Cardinals Wildcat Squeak by Vermont, 73-69

"When you look at our team, by adding another player of her caliber and the way she plays, that changes the makeup of what we're trying to do, " UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said. Lagerald Vick was also in the rotation last season with six starts. Apart from the Tigers being an average team and still getting slaughtered by the Jayhawks, the scariest part of the win is that it nearly felt as if Kansas was not even playing at full potential. This year it seems like all they have are wings sometimes.

"I was really disappointed with our guys, " said SC State coach Murray Garvin, who spoke to his team - at times loudly - in the locker room for about 30 minutes after the game. Kevin Knox and Diallo are the guys that are going to lead this team on offense: but don't count out Quade Green in that regard. Those guys can be matchup problems but they're all young and trying to find their roles, how they play together and when to pick their spots. This Missouri team controlled that game into the second half before the Jayhawks pulled away. "We knew they were good".

The blue-blood programs have also combined for 31 Final Fours with Kentucky at 17 and Kansas at 14. Do you feel that ranking is fair? This team certainly has the potential to make a run to the Final Four but right now in a pretty good year for college hoops I would put this Kentucky team more in the Top 10-15 range than top five. You remember how that one ended?

UP NEXT: Kentucky: The Wildcats take on No. 4 Kansas in the Champions Classic on Tuesday. It's a total mystery.

"I thought we played really unselfishly, the ball was moving, " BC coach Jim Christian said. A key question for Self, then, is whether he can match the offensive rebounding that was supplied by Jackson and (especially) Lucas with second chances now provided by Udoka Azubuike, Billy Preston and/or various other Jayhawks.

You can watch Kentucky vs. Kansas in the Champions Classic on ESPN, which is channel 206 on DirecTV, channel 140 on Dish and channel 217 on Spectrum. P.J. Washington was completely missing in action in the season opener but turned into "a beast", as Calipari called him, against Vermont.

In theory, a team that just lost three starters, including a national player of the year, should be at risk of taking a step back. He has made a team-high three 3-pointers.

"And then I've got to try to build this toward the end of the year".

In NCAA Basketball - the Kansas Jayhawks and Kentucky Wildcats will play in the second game at the State Farm Champions Classic in Chicago. They shot only 32.1 percent and were outrebounded 50-26.

Coach John Calipari knows his young Kentucky squad is in for a fight. If he shoots the ball well and the team plays some defense, the Jayhawks will win easily.

This heightened emphasis on 3s probably won't last once Kansas starts playing quality opponents, but it is true that the Jayhawks launched more attempts from beyond the arc last season than ever before under Self. However, it does mean this current team has not climbed its learning curve much during its three exhibitions and first two regular season games.
