The basketball Cats have a long way to go this season before Coach Cal is content with his team.
But Sunday night's performance was a far cry from the NIT game against Robert Morris a season ago.
Solid Blue fans loving every minute of the 87-49 beatdown that restored order to collegiate basketball on a day in which ranked Michigan, North Carolina and Notre Dame all lost in upsets to unranked Iowa State, Belmont and Indiana State.
Kentucky took care of business, and showed it can learn from the Michigan State loss. Like poor transition offense after good defense, something Kentucky didn't capitalize on in Chicago on many occasions.
