The Kentucky Wildcats played their best game of the season against Wichita State and will take on rivals the Louisville Cardinals Friday in Lucus Oil Stadium. The Harrison Twins combined for 39 points with a combing 5-10 from three.

Julius Randle played an amazing 2nd-half, finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

John Calipari has his team playing their best at the right time. Friday should be fun.

Wichita State came in undefeated for a reason and gave everything they had against Kentucky, but UK’s freshman responded each time and showed a lot of calmness in adversity.
