Kentucky wasn’t rattled by the rockin’ Assembly Hall crowd, the team's first true road game of the season. And what was even more important for the Wildcats was that they didn't have to rely so much on Wall. He was 4-of-12 for 11 points (although those eight assists and zero turnovers sure were helpful) with his backcourt mate Bledsoe scoring a game-high 23. Patterson, who will and continues to be the anchor of this team, had 19 points and 11 rebounds.
There is such a clear advantage of talent when Kentucky steps on the court against teams like Indiana and those it will play in the coming weeks.
This isn't exactly a bold statement, but it's obvious that UK is one of the dozen teams that can make it to Indy and win the national title.
