uk basketball1 300LEXINGTON, Ky (11/18/13)—After losing to Robert Morris last year during the NIT, Kentucky started five freshmen for the first time in the school's history during last night’s game when they met on the court again. Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison, James Young, Julius Randle and Marcus Lee lead the Cats into a big lead in the first half.

“At the end of the day they deserved to beat us, our season deserved to end,” Coach Calipari said reminiscing on last year's game against Robert Morris, “they beat us a year ago, they beat us good.”

Not this year, with a final score of 87-49 the Cats came out on top for a sweet victory to prove that this is a whole new season.

“I never looked at last year's tape, I didn’t want to see it,” Coach Calipari said, “I never looked at it, nor will I. that game is over this is a new team.”

Before the game the team never talked about Robert Morris, they talked about the ways that they could be better and practiced to benefit the team, not seek revenge.

“Our fans didn’t want to hear what I had to say, they just wanted to smash these guys,” Coach Calipari said, “they played really hard, and are coached well, it was a good game for us both.”

Tomorrow the Cats will continue their season by taking on Texas-Arlington at 7:30 p.m. at Rupp Arena.
