A Boring Start to the Tournament

Usually one of the first two days of the tournament is uneventful.  That day was yesterday.  There were only two upsets by seed, No. 11 Xavier over No. 6 Maryland and No. 12 Middle Tennessee over No. 5 Minnesota, yet Richy P’s team was considered the underdog by Vegas.  If it weren’t for Vandy’s stupidity, we’d have nothing to talk about today.  Surely today will not be as uneventful as yesterday.

13 Hours Till Tip-Off

That was a miserable headline to type.  It’s nice to watch a few other teams play before the Cats, but playing the one of the final games of the first round is pure hell.  At least there’s basketball to watch while you’re waiting (and a link to watch them all).

What Cal Expects from NKU

We’ll have a scouting report and more on the Norse throughout the day, but John Calipari summarized it pretty well during yesterday’s pregame press conference.

“They have a five man that can shoot 3s,” John Calipari said. “Their guards are not afraid. They’ll shoot 3s. They’ll fly up and down the court. They run good stuff in the half court. They space the court. Their pick-and-roll stuff is good.

Their man-to-man is more of a let’s make sure you’re going to take a tough shot, and we’re going to rebound and run.  They do play a 2-3 zone. I’ve seen a little bit of 1-3-1. Run good out-of-bounds plays on the baseline. John’s done a good job. They’ve won (24) games. This is a legitimately good team.”

What’s a Norse?

Tonight’s Matchup by the Numbers

KY Wildcats TV is on their A-Game

I don’t know if they give awards for awesome videos, but if they do, KY Wildcats TV should get all of the awards.  The practice video has me bopping, before the hype video has me ready to rip apart phonebooks.

Kentucky Women Open NCAA Tournament at Home

Matthew Mitchell’s fourth-seeded squad starts their tournament journey today at noon at Memorial Coliseum against the OVC Champions, 13-seed Belmont.  After incurring a few injuries at the SEC Tournament, the team used the week off to get healthy.

If you’re in the state of Kentucky and the surrounding region, you can watch the game on ESPN2.  If you’re outside of the region, it’s available on Watch ESPN.  Even better, you can watch them play in person by purchasing tickets at www.ukathletics.com/ncaatickets.

Sweet 16 Quarterfinals

Just like the NCAA Tournament, the first day failed to produce many exciting matchups.  That changed yesterday when Collins and Elliot County went to overtime, before Collins pulled away for a 65-57 victory.  Meade County’s magical run cam to end against Cooper, Ballard rolled Taylor County and Fern Creek showed they could be the team to beat by dominating Hopkinsville.

The day starts with a matchup that could produce this year’s state champion and ends with a battle that will determine who’s the best in the city of Louisville.

  • Noon: Scott County vs. Bowling Green
  • 1:30: Scott vs. Perry County Central
  • 6:30: Collins vs. Cooper
  • 8:00: Fern Creek vs. Ballard

AD’s UK Starting Five

Anthony Davis shared his favorite five former Wildcats and was humbled enough to leave his name off the list.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

It’s the one day of the year wear we won’t blame you for not wearing blue during the UK game.  Besides, nobody wants to spend the day getting pinched.

    So the reporter is making fun of UK players for not knowing the definition of a Norse, but then gives the a wrong answer himself. “It’s a Greek mythological character.” Norse is the common name for the Vikings. It means people of the North. Northern Kentucky-Norse? Get it? You would think with the popularity of Thor, Loki, and Orin and pop culture’s fascination of trivia this would be general knowledge. If you’re near Northern Kentucky check out the Viking exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center. It’s pretty interesting. I know, this it too long a post for such a minor annoyance, but it irks me me when reporters do a ha-ha-aren’t-you-stupid story, but only show their true ignorance. As Lincoln said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

      I was going to make the same point.

      Bingo…we have a winner.

    3. Citizen10

      Thank you! That was so frustrating.

    I love the A.D. video. Gotta go with Booker because of the shooting. I do think when Monk hits the NBA we will have to have a discussion though.

  3. Ridge Runner

    Absolutely

    16 games, only two upsets… both B1G teams. Says much about that conference.

    Although the ACC was 3 – 1, they were less than impressive. #5 ND beat #12 Princeton by 2 when the Tigers missed an open 3 at the buzzer, #5 UVA staved off #12 UNC-Wilmington by 5, and #3 Fla. St. snuck by #14 Fla-Gulf Coast by 6. ACC has 2 teams eliminated already……

  5. Ridge Runner

    I’m normally stoked for the tournament to start but annoyed and subdued a little we are playing a home state school. Really think NKU getting here is cool and oh well anyway… bring on Sunday.

    Apologize for comment above in the wrong place. Just agreeing with Charles above.

  6. runningunnin.454

    Boring…..seriously? Do you even like basketball?
    Anyway, I’m happy…my bracket’s still PERFECT.

    1. WatchutalkinboutWillis

      Does that count the First Four? Good job!

      I only whiffed on 3 and one of those was Vandy giving away a game in the closing seconds. Xavier and Wisconsin were the other 2, I didn’t think Xavier would be able to hang without their star player and Wisconsin was pretty average overall in a weak Big (14). Oh well, still doing better than last year after day 1 (thanks MTSU)
