Kentucky-Fort Wayne preview
- You might remember the Mastodons as the team that not only got Tom Crean and Indiana to go play in their gym — but then also beat the Hoosiers last season. That turned out to be a flash in the pan, as Fort Wayne’s next-best win, in terms of Ken Pomeroy’s rankings, was against No. 167 North Dakota State. One bad omen for Kentucky, however: this game is happening exactly one year to the date of The Dons’ upset of IU.
- Have we mentioned that this matchup — like those against Troy, East Tennessee State and Illinois-Chicago — is part of the Adolph Rupp Classic? And can we say it would’ve been a lot more fun to see the Wildcats play in the loaded PK80 event in Oregon for Nike founder Phil Knight’s 80th birthday? UK was on the initial list of teams but backed out. Arkansas, Butler, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Gonzaga, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Stanford and Texas are among the programs participating. Sigh.
- Kentucky must be acutely aware of two players Wednesday night: 6-foot-5 junior guard John Konchar, who is averaging 11.3 points, 11.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists, and 6-1 senior guard Bryson Scott, who is averaging 22 points, 6.3 boards and 4.3 assists. Konchar’s 31 career double-doubles are more than all but three players nationally and his career shooting percentage is 59.6.
- Fort Wayne’s Jax Levitch grew up in Louisville and attended Trinity High School. His brother David played for the rival Cardinals from 2013-17.
