Former University of Kentucky star Willie Cauley-Stein said playing power forward instead of center for the Sacramento Kings “is good for me.

Kentucky made only three of 15 free throws in its defeat of East Tennessee State. The Cats did not make a free throw until Kevin Knox connected with 7:55 left in the second half. The fans’ joyous reaction caught him off guard.
Through two regular season men’s basketball home games, Kentucky has an average attendance of 19,991 which is down from 22,346 after two games a year ago. Is that a fluke or are we seeing a fundamental change in the “UK basketball experience?”
