Kentucky’s frontcourt consists of 6-8 Reid Travis, 6-10 EJ Montgomery, and 6-11 Nick Richards while Wofford does not start anyone above 6-9.
Thus, naturally at today’s media session, I asked Richards about the height advantage his team had over the Terriers, and his answer was bold and unexpected to say the least: “We’re just better than them all around, I think.”
To follow up, I asked Wofford big man Cameron Jackson how he could prove Richards and Kentucky wrong.
Hopefully for Kentucky, Richards is correct, but the statement seems not to have been the best choice of words.
One thing is for sure: He’ll need to back up this talk for Kentucky to beat Wofford and advance to the Sweet 16.
