Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows Kentucky has a deep and experienced roster. Because of an influx of transfers, key returners and an extra season of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wildcats entered the season with more Div. I minutes (13,385) than any other team in program history since minutes were kept as a stat beginning with the 1964-65 season. The team also entered the season with 5,203 career points, the second most in school history. Only the 1995-96 national title team returned more, with 5,232 points.
The model also knows Robert Morris has had success against the Wildcats before. In the first round of the NIT in 2013, the Colonials shocked Kentucky, 59-57, to earn the biggest win in program history. That Wildcats team had won the national championship the previous season.
