Jamal Murray has scored 59 points in the last two games, one major reason Kentucky had no trouble easily beating Florida and Georgia.
“With guys shooting like we’ve been shooting and everybody’s rebounding like they’ve been rebounding, I think we’ll be fine,” Murray said after the Georgia win Tuesday. “Everybody’s getting better individually every day, so we’re just trying to keep getting better every day.”
That was certainly needed after Kentucky blew a 21-point lead and lost at Tennessee last week.
“I’d say we’ve been fighting. We’ve been playing together more and trusting each other more on defense,” Murray said. “That’s our biggest thing. We just communicate a lot more and been focusing a lot. It’s coming down to talking.
“We all know what we’re doing, we all know where we’re supposed to be so if somebody’s not there we just rotate. We’re doing a great job of playing team defensive basketball.”
