Kentucky is currently giving UCLA one of the biggest beatdowns college basketball has seen in recent memory.
The No. 1-ranked Wildcats (11-0) allowed just seven points through 20 minutes of play and now lead the Bruins (8-3) by nearly 40 points. It’s the type of shellacking you’d see if an NBA team played a college team.
It makes sense. In the eyes of Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, Kentucky is an NBA team.
One nice thing when U R watching Kentucky, U get 2see how players on the other team would do against an NBA team #UKvsUCLA

Kentucky is probably the most physically gifted college basketball team of all-time, with eight or nine future NBA players on its roster.
If the Wildcats can get past No. 4 Louisville Dec. 27, many analysts believe they’ll become the first team to go undefeated through an entire season since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers.
