Kentucky Wins Canadian Exhibition Basketball Game

WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari has already

started turning a top-notch recruiting class into part of a team

that hopes to contend for a national championship.

The Wildcats started a three-day, three-game exhibition series

in Canada on Sunday night, defeating the University of Windsor


Two months before official practice even begins, incoming

freshman point guard Brandon Knight led the Wildcats with 31

points. Knight is supposed to fill the sneakers of John Wall, who

led Kentucky to 35 wins last season as a freshman while earning

All-America honors.

Wall was one of five Kentucky players - including DeMarcus

Cousins, Wall's classmate and fellow All-America, - who left school

early for the NBA.

The game was played before a sellout crowd of 2,500 at the St.

Denis Centre on Windsor's campus.
