The steamrolling Kentucky Wildcats are yet to break a sweat this season. Today, they defeated a talented, yet vastly overmatched Arizona State team, 115-69.
In case you missed the game, here is a quick recap: They tipped the ball at center court, and the route was on.
These kind of smack downs are becoming so common for Kentucky, they aren’t even the headline anymore. That honor goes to Kentucky guard De’Aaron Fox, who recorded only the second triple-double in Kentucky basketball history.
The only other player to accomplish that feat while wearing a Wildcats jersey is Chris Mills.

Mills recorded his triple-double in 1988, nine years before Fox was born.
Fox, only a freshman, stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs 187 pounds. Expected to be a one-and-done type player, he is doing more than enough to get the attention of teams who will be picking in the lottery at next year’s NBA draft.
This Kentucky team is loaded with talent and appears unbeatable early in the season. Fox, while supremely talented and with a bright future ahead of him, is only a cog in the Calipari machine.
