“The wins are great, but I feel there is still room for improvement in what we can do,” said the UK head coach. Blair Bergman. “We knew Ashland was going to be strong in some areas, so the key for us was execution, controlling what we could control.”

Kentucky returns to action in two weeks in the Ann Arbor Classic in Michigan.
