Florida A&M coach says UK basketball would have been better without Sahevir Wheeler in the lineup | Daily News Byte


The Kentucky Wildcats got back into the win column on Wednesday night as they defeated Florida A&M 88-68 at Rupp Arena.

It was a big night for Kesson Wallace as he had 27 points, 9 assists, 4 steals and was 5/6 from three.

In stretches of the second half, Wallace took over point guard duties for the Cats and led them on a run that saw the lead go from 7 to 20.

That meant Sahevir Wheeler’s minutes were reduced as he played just 20 minutes compared to Wallace’s team-high 31 minutes.

Kentucky fans have wanted to see Wallace in pick and roll situations, and Wednesday’s game proved why so many want to see him.

However, after the game, Florida A&M head coach Robert McCullum took some shots at Wheeler and how Kentucky played when he wasn’t in the game.

“We felt that (Sahveer) Wheeler was more effective when he was not in the game.”

Some interesting comments from the FAMU head coach that I’m sure BBN will talk about.
