1 takeaway from each Wildcat as new season approaches

Following a sopping slapping of Missouri at Kroger Field Saturday, Kentucky fans were treated to their first helping of basketball action Sunday evening as the guys suited up for a bash with the reigning NAIA national champion Georgetown Tigers.

The short trip down Newtown Pike wasn’t made without intent to win as former Western Kentucky Hilltopper Jake Ohmer asserted himself as the class of the court, leading the game in scoring at 25 points. Luckily, Kentucky was able to scrape together enough positive production from its loaded backcourt to help push the Cats to victory.

Aside from Ohmer, the Tigers got 36 gritty minutes from Jacob Conway, who finished 1-10 from the field and even contributed two fouls and two turnovers.
