Connecticut guards not intimidated by McDonald’s All-Americans at Kentucky

By LARRY VAUGHT

ARLINGTON — Connecticut guards Ryan Boatright and Shabazz Napier says Kentucky having six freshmen that were McDonald’s All-Americans on the roster provides no extra motivation for them.

“Yeah, they’re All‑Americans and they’re supposed to be future pros. We don’t really look into that. It’s another game. We’re going to go out there and we’re going to execute our defensive schemes and play together and play UConn basketball,” Boatwright said. “We’re not taking it as an extra challenge or nothing like that. They got to lace their shoes up just like we got to.”

“We all play the game of basketball to compete against the best. This is one of them games,” Napier said. “At the end of the day, they’re going to throw the ball up in the air. They don’t do nothing different. We put on our jerseys the same way. They worked hard to get to this point, and we did, too. We’re going to try to do our best to try to get this W.”

    Let’s hope that UConn’s best is not nearly good enough.

        Just slipped that in with all the basketball talk. Our other BIG CATS are kicking the pig skin in SP. Good to be a Wildcat fan. Things are looking up in Lexington with the CWS face lift and the RR coming. Then we got Cal’s boys’ playing for No. 9. IT”S GOOD TIMES these days in the Bluegrass!!!
