Ohio vs Kentucky Basketball 2021 Preview

The Wildcats are fresh from an 80-55 win over Mt. St. Mary’s on November 16. Oscar Tshiebwe had yet another dominant performance, leading all scorers with 24 points. Tshiebwe added 16 rebounds, while Tyty Washington Jr. chipped in 16 points in the win. Kentucky made 53.1% of its shots from the field and 40% of its 3-point shots in a dominant performance.

Now, the Wildcats face a scrappy Bobcats team that hasn’t lost yet, and Kentucky head coach John Calipari admits he doesn’t know much about them.

“We’re playing Ohio. I haven’t watched any tape on them. They’re 4-0. They shoot 30 threes a game and make 12. If they make 12 against us, we’ll lose. Now we got to spend a day absolutely saying, ‘Okay, how are we going to guard this stuff?’ They’ve got five guys that all can play,” Calipari said, per SB Nation. “The Ohio game is going to be a hard one for us, a hard game.”

On the other side, the Bobcats have started out hot, winning four games in a row, most recently taking down Robert Morris, 85-71, on November 15. Ohio had five players score in double figures, led by Jason Carter, who finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The Bobcats are shooting 44.5% from the floor and 38.3% from downtown, but they haven’t seen a team of Kentucky’s caliber yet.

“They’re talented, they’re athletic,” Ohio coach Mark Boals said about Calipari’s team, via CBS Sports. “It’s a great opportunity for our school, for our program. You have to play really well to win, especially there. I learned that back in ’95. You got to make shots, you got to get a good whistle and try to be in there at the end.”

Shooting will be key, of course, but this game will likely come down to rebounding, and Kentucky has the definite edge there. The Wildcats have a +14 rebounding margin against opponents, while Ohio University has a +3.7 margin. Tshiebwe alone is averaging 18.3 points and 18.7 boards per game, and he’s going to be difficult for the Bobcats to stop.

“It’s kind of ridiculous,” Boals said about Tshiebwe. “The biggest thing with him will be trying to block him out as much as we can.”
