UK basketball notes: First 2 games won't be 'Cupcake City'

To use presidential elections as a guide, Kentucky's first two games this season, carry a potential degree of difficulty more like George W. Bush-Al Gore 2000 rather than Ronald Reagan-Walter Mondale 1984. "It's not going to be 'Cupcake City,' " ESPN analyst Dick Vitale said of UK's opener against Maryland on Friday in the Barclays Center Classic. "... It's going to be a real battle."
