Kentucky has had a perfect start to the season. The Wildcats now sit atop the Associated Press poll for the second straight week with an 8-0 record.
It has been far from easy, however. A recent bout with the predecessor to their top ranking, North Carolina, ended on an Anthony Davis block in the last five seconds of the game. In a game that could have gone either way, Kentucky won with its defense and made a statement.
Games against Kansas and Old Dominion were challenges as well, but Kentucky came out on top. Different players stepped up: Against North Carolina it was Michael Kidd-Gilchrist leading the way, against Kansas it was a great performance by the starting five and against Old Dominion, sixth man Darius Miller led the team in scoring and assists.
