PJ Washington seen riding knee scooter at arena before NCAA Tournament game

The Kentucky Wildcats begin their quest for a ninth national title in program history on Thursday with an opening round game against Abliene Christian.

The Naismith Hall of Fame has reached four Final Fours with the Wildcats and led Kentucky to the 2012 NCAA Championship.

Kentucky advanced to the second round for the ninth time in as many NCAA appearances under John Calipari, and will face the Seton Hall-Wofford victor.

Kentucky played without starting PJ Washington, who was nursing a sprained foot. Washington won't play Saturday unless he receives clearance to have the cast removed Friday and he may not be ready to go regardless.

"The options were the boot or a cast, and the cast would speed up the healing; so we said to put the cast on", said Calipari. If they don't, he won't play Saturday, and they'll probably try to take it off Tuesday or Wednesday of next week to see how his foot feels.

"Coach Cal is going to stay on us regardless of the score", Johnson said when asked about why United Kingdom put the game away so easily.

Calipari then shifted his attention to the Wildcats' NCAA Tournament game against Abilene Christian. There was no further information on Washington's availability should Kentucky advance.

Kentucky got on top early behind 12 points from Reid Travis to take a 26-10 lead and had dominated points in the paint 20-2 at that stage.

Coach John Calipari tweeted before the game that a foot specialist confirmed the injury was only a sprain, not a fracture.
