There will be college basketball in Brooklyn on Saturday as No. 4 Kentucky takes on Ohio State in the second game of the CBS Sports Classic at the Barclays Center. No. 11 North Carolina takes on No. 22 UCLA in the second game.

I talked with Adam Jardy of the Columbus Dispatch to get a scouting report on Ohio State, which has struggled to a 5-5 start under head coach Thad Matta. Jardy talks about the Buckeyes’ youth and what they need to do to hang with Kentucky on Saturday.

I also talked with Ben Roberts of Next Cats about the Marshall County Hoop Fest, about UK signee Wenyen Gabriel’s appearance in Lexington last weekend and about Tai Wynyard, who joined the Cats this week and could end up playing right away.
