So far, one could say that we have hit a few bumps in the road. Playing without PJ Washington proved to be difficult for the Cats even with the momentum that they came into the tournament with.
Notably, the team struggled to guard what seemed like an endless stream of 3 point shots. Even still, the team had energy as though they were playing for PJ.
The Cats play tonight in a matchup with Houston. Renewed hope for PJ playing and thriving is here. He has been practicing and is set to play as it is understood.
As for the matchup, they may be logo twins, that is not where the similarity of UK and Houston end. Both teams were ranked in the top 10 of the Coach’s Poll.
The Cats will have a tough matchup with a difficult defense and sizable team. There have also been some notable 2 seed losing to 3 seeds lately…here’s to hoping we make it to the next round!
