College hoop season is underway

Perennial superpower, the University of Kentucky, returns bigger, and potentially better, than the team that lost to the University of Connecticut 60-54 in the 2014 national title game. An opening season clash against fellow historical basketball powerhouse Kansas University, set the stage for a season that may provide reparations to the Kentucky program for last year’s loss.

The Polars are undefeated so far starting off with a not-so-regular game. By the end of the first half of game one, the Polars lead St. Paul Como by a score of 14-0. And then, just as the official was signaling the start of the second half, the rains from the thunderstorm came. The game was halted and going by the books, the victory went to North.
