No. 1 Kentucky faces early hoops challenge from Michigan State

Posted: Updated:

(RNN) - No. 1 ranked Kentucky is limited by the rule that only lets coach John Calipari play five guys at a time. Calipari signed six McDonald's All-Americans in response to last year's disappointing season. He had a few pretty good players coming back.

The Wildcats have mashed their way through the early nonconference schedule, as expected.

We get to find out quickly if this team can go 40-0 when it plays No. 2 Michigan State on Nov. 12 in Chicago's United Center.

What's gone down: The Wildcats demolished UNC-Ashville 89-57 and Northern Kentucky 93-63 in early regular season shakedown games.

What's coming up: Kentucky plays No. 2 Michigan State at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN on Tuesday, Nov. 12 and is off until Nov. 17 when they face Robert Morris.

Who's getting it done: Julius Randle is scoring 22.5 points and pulling 14.5 rebounds per game. Aaron Henderson is scoring 13, Andrew Harrison 10.5 and Marcus Lee 10.0 points per game.
