Michigan State was supposed to be a test, but the Spartans offered little resistance earlier this season.

If you look at the highlights from Monday night, the Sun Devils looked, at times, like they weren’t even on the court.

So, will the Bruins bring some competition?

Cal is happy with his guys.  The 115 points in the win over ASU are the most in the Calipari era in Lexington…and most in program lore since 2002 in a win over Tennessee State.

So just how good is UK and are the Cats ready to go to the next level?

Hear from Cal in the video.
