Kentucky Basketball Regular Season Statistics

Kentucky is in midst of opening the doors to the hallway of their postseason run. The regular season is over, they landed in Nashville this morning, and have already went through their first shoot-around as they are approaching the 24 hour mark from their first game of the conference tournament. While we have to count the clock down every single hour while waiting for the game to arrive, about the only thing we can do to stay sane is watch the second round games of the SEC Tournament and fill our minds with as much UK content as possible. So I figured, why not observe the numbers regarding what we just spent the entire season watching? I've wrote below the full season statistics from each category, including its leaders, the top-five standouts, and a hype message to absolutely ruin your chances of getting any sleep this evening.

After reviewing these all afternoon, it's clear who were the most dominant of the team as they managed to surface the top three spots in each category. The team as a whole went 21-10 throughout the regular season and finished in third place in the Southeastern Conference at 12-6. Some other notes surrounding the 2022-23 team is that they had six true road game wins (on 10 attempts) from the schedule, while going 6-7 in Quad 1 opportunities.


After reading this, you might be catching some of the remaining games left in the SEC Tourney. When you see Vanderbilt and LSU come on, just remember that Kentucky plays the winner of it. Do your scouting, prep for your bets, and get rowdy online once the clock his midnight because it will then be GAMEDAY.


I'm so ready for this postseason run we're about to go on. If you're in Nashville, give the bartenders a run for their money. If you are in Bridgestone Arena, you better not leave the arena with your voice. If you're at home, scream at that television and sit on your lucky pillow (whatever your superstition is) like my great-grandmother does and root on your Kentucky Wildcats. It's freaking March.
