Now, though, the UK assistant coach isn't so sure, especially after watching Louisville beat his former Western Kentucky University players in Bowling Green. "Louisville is still an awesome team," said Casey. "Their record to start the season was very misleading because they still have a talented, and deep, team. 'They really rose to the occassion when I watched them at Larry Vaught Cats' Pause Columnist Louisville won't be easy." Despite Chapmans' Ink, Teammates Not Upset KENTUCKY Coach Eddie Sutton worried earlier about how UK's other players would react to all the preseason attention freshman guard Rex Chapman attracted. "Our staff talked about some possible jealousy," said Sutton. "He had his picture on a magazine cover and was in Sports Illustrated. That concerned us. "There might have been a time the upperclassmen felt Rex was getting too much publicity. Now they have lived and played with him and realize he is a bonafide player. They respect him and there is no resentment because they know he is a good player. "I did a lot of counseling with Rex individually because he was worried about what his teammates thought. And if Rex had not handled things in the right way it could have been a problem. Western. It was a hostile crowd but they showed great poise like the defending national champions should." Casey hopes the Wildcats can show the same poise Saturday when the rivals meet. "This is a great rivalry between two great programs," said the former UK eager. "You have two of the top coaches in the country involved in this game and both schools have outstanding players. "I think some of the in-state rivalry has worn off and now | it is just a game between two teams on equal ground." Louisville, though, figures to have the upper hand this year because of its strong inside game led by 6-11 sophomore center Pervis Ellison. "Pervis is a pro player," said Casey. "If I was a pro scout, , I would be looking at him right now. He has great hands, can shoot and he plays with so much confidence and poise for a sophomore. He can help bring the ball down the court or do just about anything else you need. "We are going to be at a total disadvantage on the boards, especially when Louisville puts 7-0 Felton Spencer in the game along with Pervis. Against Western they seemed to just throw the ball up and go after it. Their inside players all have great timing and instincts for the basketball." Kentucky appears to have an advantage at guard. Louisville doesn't have the firepower in the backcourt to match Ed Davender, Rex Chapman and Derrick Miller. But Casey doesn't buy that theory that Louisville is weak at guard despite the problems Louisville has had at that position this season after losing Jeff Hall and Milt Wagner from last year's NCAA championship team. "Their guards are still excellent players," said Casey. "They don't have a true point guard or a great scoring guard but they still have some players who can post you up and score. "I just don't think guard is a true weak point. All their guys need is experience and they are getting better every game. They have great talent at guard that just needs time to jell." Casey knows the Cardinals. Western was 0-5 against Louisville when he was an assistant to Coach Clem Haskins. But Casey also tried to recruit current Louisville players Ellison, Keith Williams, Tony Kimbro and Herbert Crook. Williams, a redshirt freshman guard, was the player Casey thought he had the best chance to bring to Western. "I really worked hard trying to get Keith," said Casey. "I got very close to him. "I know a lot of their players. I roomed with Crook's brother when we played in the Kentucky Derby Classic." But Saturday Casey will be trying to help Kentucky beat the players he once tried to recruit. Recently the UK assistant has even suited up in practice to help the Wildcats, who were down to seven healthy players. His first outing, though, ended when he need stitches in his lip after running into Rob Lock. He expects the action to be just as fierce Saturday in Freedom Hall. "Louisville's game against Western was a physical war," said Casey. "Western is no pushover but Louisville just went to war. We don't have the firepower or manpower inside to do that so we have to do other things to win. But beating "That's why I felt I had to protect him early and play down his role. I didn't want him to feel any added pressure but he looks like the type that can handle any pressure." And Chapman's teammates insist there is no resentment or jealousy. "We all knew Rex was from the state and would get a lot of publicity," said Davender. "But I don't think there was ever any resentment. I know I didn't feel any. "Rex has always been responsive to the older players. He asks you things in practice because he wants to get better. If he does something wrong and you tell him about it, he takes your advice. He's just one of the guys on the team." Chapman is averaging 14 points per game and is hitting 48.8 percent from the field. He's also tied with Davender for the team lead in assists with 14. Davender is averaging 16.3 points per game to lead the team. Abatemarco Says Scott Can Help Kentucky LAMAR COACH Tom Abatemarco thinks Mike Scott can play a key role for Kentucky the final two mpnths of the season. Abatemarco watched Scott play at Wake Forest when he was an assistant at North Carolina State last season. "Mike Scott is a big, tough 6-10 role player," said Abatemarco. "He can shoot and run the court. He's more mobile than (Rob) Lock. "Scott is no franchise player. Kentucky is not getting a Dave Cowens. But with Scott and Lock coming on Kentucky could reach the final eight or 16 of the NCAA Tournament." Abatemarco loved playing in Rupp Arena. And he is a believer in Eddie Sutton's coaching ability.
