Wildcats finish 4-0 in Big Blue Bahamas tour

The University of Kentucky (UK) Wildcats finished its Big Blue Bahamas tour with a perfect 4-0 record, capping off the run with a 93-60 win over Team Toronto.

“I love how well we are playing, especially because it’s August,” UK head coach John Calapari said.

“But, I’m not intoxicated by this. It’s a great starting point, but that’s all it is. My advice for fans is to enjoy this and stay in the moment.

“We did this trip to bring this group of players together and they have done just that.”

Prior to Sunday’s dominating victory, Kentucky reached the century mark in a 100-64 blowout win over Mega Bemax. It also picked up wins over the Bahamas National team and San Lorenzo de Almagro.

“We are probably a little further ahead than what I thought, but make no mistake, we still have a way to go,” he said.

“You can tell with these guys, they’re a lot more dedicated than we were last year. They want it a lot more. We’ve been in the gym after games here. Everybody wants it more and that’s what special teams do.”

The Big Blue Tour also provided a boost for The Bahamas on the tourism front, as over 1,000 fans and officials traveled with the team and stayed at the Atlantis Resort.
