8) I’ve been pretty hard on Goodwin so I’ll give him some credit tonight, he didn’t force near as many shots as he has been but of course the way the refs were calling the game was perfect for his style of play.
By the way, POLSON was HUGE in the first half. Him and Hood. I guess practicing against NBA players day in and day out will make you good. We didn’t lose a beat when they were forced into action. In fact, I think Polson had a better game than Harrow or Mays.
Cal has says that he tells the UK team that they should be used to the big game evironment, because every game they play is like that, while the other team is more likely to be spooked by it. I think that Ole Miss showed that they are not used to the big game environment, even if it it at home.
Finally! Worries me about the REBOUNDS b/c that is a critical factor in any game but…this is their turning-point-game. And w/o Big Willie. Someone check me on this, the stats show K Wil as going: 10 of 19 = 20pts; 5 of 12 = 15pts; and 1 of 2 = 1 pt…for a TOTAL of 36. Where am I (or the stats) wrong?
And I didn’t get to see the game, I’ve heard nothing…not one word about Harrow; which can be a really, really good thing for a PG. How’d he play from a game-mgt perspective? Is he seeing the KentuckY-Blue Light at the end of the tunnel?
^^^Realize that Wiltjer went 10-19 overall from the field, meaning he hit 5 of 12 three pointers and 5 of 7 2 point shots and a free throw….hence the 26 points. He had a great game and I loved seeing the team getting him the ball. The dunk was sweet as well. A big win for the CATS but they have to build on this one.
