Jones was the story of the game. After a shaky exhibition debut on Monday night the talented freshman came out with more energy and more confidence against Dillard. Jones was everywhere, blocking shots on defense, handling the ball, making slice and dice baskets, running the floor and finishing at the basket. Rumor has it that along with the 30 minutes of play he spent 10 minutes selling popcorn and cokes.
In addition to the double-double Jones racked up he had four assists, six blocks and three steals.
Jon Hood came off the bench to score his points. A dozen of those came by way of Hood's dialing long distance to the tune of 4 of 6 from behind the arc. Hood also dished out four assists, some of which led to rim rattling dunks for teammates.
Knight dropped six dimes, and was very unselfish in giving the ball up to teammates. After a rough first half saw
pick up three fouls Lamb got his sidekick on the scoreboard with a nifty move in the lane to free himself, then kicking the ball to an open Lamb in the corner on a fastbreak. Knight could easily have driven for an easy deuce. With the three in his pocket Lamb went on to net two more baskets to end the game with seven points.

and earning Vargas some pine time to contemplate the importance of going up strong with the ball.
After shooting an anemic 1-11 from behind the arc against Pikeville the Cats bounced back to shoot 58% from long distance against Dillard on 11-19 shooting. Overall Kentucky hit 48-69 field goal attempts, good for 70%.
