Kentucky Won Against Arkansas
Cason Wallace, who suffered an ankle injury in Tuesday night’s defeat to the Vanderbilt Commodores, did not play in today’s game as the Cats continue to struggle with a slew of injuries.
CJ Fredrick, Antonio Reeves, Chris Livingston, Jacob Toppin, and Oscar Tshiebwe started for Kentucky without Sahvir Wheeler and a natural point guard.
Although Antonio Reeves played point guard at Illinois State, he is not the best ball handler or distributor. Therefore, he has been demoted to the role of emergency point guard this season. However, according to SportsBettingSolutionAsia.com reports, Reeves and Toppin took the initiative in the offensive zone for most of the game.
Overall, Kentucky did an excellent job protecting the ball, headed by Reeves and Toppin. Toppin’s unexpected agility with the ball at his stature helped him frequently break the press for the Cats. Conversely, Reeves’ point guard duties did not hinder his scoring.
Only because of those two people was there ever a game. PPH bookie reports said they played with no inhibitions and left it all on the court.
