Kentucky opened the exhibition portion of its schedule at Rupp Arena on Sunday night with a 108-51 victory over Clarion, the alma mater of UK coach John Calipari.
Five-star freshman Malik Monk didn't start, but he still led UK in scoring with 15 points in 19 minutes. Fellow first-year players Bam Adebayo (13 points), De'Aaron Fox (12 points) and Sacha Killeya-Jones (12 points) also reached double figures in points. Senior Derek Willis added 13 points. Sophomore Isaiah Briscoe got 11. And the coach's son, Brad Calipari, finished with six points on two 3-pointers.
"I may even get a kiss from my wife tonight," John Calipari said afterward.
Kentucky is ranked second in the CBS Sports Preseason Top 25 (and one).
Clarion coach Marcess Williams doesn't disagree with that ranking.
"The sky's the limit for Kentucky," he said. "You'll probably see them at the Final Four."
