College basketball: No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats hold off Vermont”

He made half of his 10 shots on Sunday.

Kentucky led for 37:03 of game time but Vermont continued to battle back.

With a 73-69 victory on Sunday, Kentucky picked up their second win of the season. That's not exactly the way to finish a game to get ready for a team like Kansas.

With 28.7 seconds left, Trae Bell-Haynes missed a pair of free throws but Vermont claimed a loose ball on the rebound. "It showed us where we were and how many things we need to get better on". I have a pretty experienced group. Sunday is the season opener for John Becker's club. However, he had the courage to step up when he was needed most and he also added eight big rebounds. "Sacha played his butt off today". As a team, Kentucky knocked down 18-of-23 free throws, good enough for 78%.

"You can not play Popcorn State and learn things". They had Purdue beat. That is when Kevin Knox stepped up to knock down a corner three to push the lead to 72-66.

Calipari is 3-0 vs. Vermont in his career.

The Big Blue faithful - and coach John Calipari - got a little more tense when a United Kingdom turnover gave Vermont the ball with 1:23 to go and a chance to tie the game.

Washington's final rebound with less than a second to play clinched the win.

The Catamounts had a chance to tie but senior forward Payton Henson missed a three point shot with three seconds remaining in the game. The Catamounts return four of its top players from that team, which went 29-6 overall.

"They made us play defense", Washington said. "We were able to find holes and pick them apart".

"That was big", Calipari said of the trey by Knox.

"Where are we now".

"I kind of like Quade with his hands on the ball at the end to be honest", Calipari said. Kansas has a bunch of big guys.

"I (was) excited about this game because we learned about ourselves", he said. I've had teams that way where I know we are fine.
