Knight on playing North Carolina and more

Kentucky freshman Brandon Knight discussed playing North Carolina, what he expects of the Dean Dome environment and more.

Kentucky freshman guard Brandon Knight had a career high six assists on Monday night, eclipsing the five assists he had tallied on two other occasions. Has Knight been doing anything to improve his assist output?

"I have been trying to practice and work hard on that and trying to approach the game in a different way."

Knight and Harrison Barnes were both McDonald's All Americans as high school seniors. Do they maintain a relationship?

"I know Harrison (Barnes) pretty well, but I do not keep in touch with him very much. I know of him though and he is a great player and he is doing pretty decent so far. We look forward to playing against him, but we always look forward to playing against competition."

What does the freshman expect the environment in North Carolina to be like?

"I expect a hostile environment. Obviously a lot of boos, but honestly I have never played in it so I don't really know what to expect, but we will have to play together."

Is the Kentucky transition defense where Coach John Calipari expects it to be?

"We have done a decent job in that area, but we still have to get better. We continue to work on it during practice so we will continue to get better at it."
