Kenny Sky Walker on the 2008 UK Team

Interesting to hear Walker's take on how UK is looking prior to the start of the season. At the risk of unfairly characterizing his thoughts, here is my summary of his comments, followed by my own brief remarks:

"Meeks is healthy." Sounds good, but can he stay healthy?

"Patterson is tough." Given.

"Darius Miller can play."

"UK will have difficulty making shots. And they really need a point guard."

My sense is that UK has an upgraded roster from last year, but that they will sorely miss Bradley and Crawford. Sounds like the strategy would be for UGA to sag into the middle and take away the lobs into Patterson. If UK struggles to shoot, maybe they will lose their confidence and UGA will be take at least one game from UK this year.
