    I wish UK we could get big time recruits like him still. He’s a superstar. Go cats!! And boo dUKe.

    1. BluemanGreen

      Let’s all just get over the Duke-Zion crap until we have to play them..if they dont get knocked out by Lehigh or some crap like they like to do historically!

      If we get Keion Brooks as expected it gives us 3 of the top 13 recruits in the country per 24/7. Whitney and Maxey are both top 10 per rivals. Duke currently has 1 top 15 recruit and in the running w KU and UK. But we can’t still get big time recruits? Do u even read what u write or just let the Force dictate?

    5. makeitstop

      Sorry that’s in the running “for Hurt”

  2. Bigblueswami

    Wonder if he’ll wear the same type shoe

    1. makeitstop

      I actually really wonder about that too bc they get a Rn of money for Nike to supply their gear, but if he said no, what does Duke do? It makes Nike look terrible if he’s out there in Adidas but I’d be worried if I were him. It’s a freak thing but he’s a freak athlete.

    2. BBNDan7

      He can’t wear anything but Nike.

    3. makeitstop

      A “S-Ton” of money… auto correct doesn’t like that

    4. Suffering Fools

      After all Nike did to get him to Duke? Yeah, he’s not changing brands.

  3. Jiminy Crickets

    An article drooling over Zion, then a question “do we still want duke?”. KSR at its finest.

    1. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      You mean DSR

    2. StillBP

      “Zion is back, and according to Drew Franklin, he’s still fat.”….yeah man the drool is real. Smoke another one, Jiminy!

  4. UKLugo

    Our season will not be complete without a rematch. No matter what our final destiny turns out to be. That’s my opinion.

  5. BigolBlue

    Bring on Duke….not. They will destroy uk

    1. bigbluebanana

      Here’s a bet chief. UK and dook meet again in the tourney. If dook wins, I leave this site forever. No alt accounts, no nothing. Gone! But when UK wins, you bounce your fat azz back to the farm? Put your money where your mouth is. Let’s go.

    2. Miller45

      We always get stuck with UNC in our region

    3. StillBP

      bbb no way BoB could keep his end of the deal. He’ll just make other accounts and deny he’s the same person. He sweats KSR way too hard to leave.

    4. bigbluebanana

      You’re right BP, but I’m trying to give him the chance to be decent for once. No one wants him here except himself.

    5. BigolBlue

      Deal. And if they win title im gone too. No questions. And no I dont have other accounts like some here

    6. syrin23

      Duke WILL NOT win the title. They are shooting 29% from outside. No team has won shooting less than 24$. They are like 250th in the country from the FT line. Zion is a terrible on the ball defender. Some team will pack it inside, foul all their drives, make them miss from the FT and from outside and beat them. Why people don’t attack Zion on offense on most trips is beyond me.

    7. syrin23

      That should be 34%

    8. 4everUKblue

      BigolSlaterMedic, you are many things and a damned liar is one of them. I could make a list but I think we all know what the list includes.

  6. davis2319

    Unless Zion comes back and shoots over 40% from three point range…. then they do not scare me. They are one of the worst shooting teams in the country, if not THE worst. Also they have Jack White AKA Bad Luck Brian.

    1. BigolBlue

      Lost by 34

    2. BBNDan7

      6 months ago…

    3. syrin23

      Not just from the outside, they are like 250th in the country from the FT line too. Pack it inside, foul the drivers and make them throw up brinks. Rebound, rebound and rebound.

  7. spincr4hire

    I’ve seen enough golden coral popup ads. Counting 50 plus times already

    1. ClutchCargo

      Install adblock and you won’t see them. I never see the ads you all always complain about.

    Missing him and Andrew Wiggins hurts the most

    1. syrin23

      Wiggins sucked and still sucks. The guy has NEVER had a single game in the NBA where he has double digit rebounds. Completely one dimensional lazy player.

    2. bigbluebanana

      Is that true? If so, that’s a very interesting and telling factoid.

    3. syrin23

      They said that in the game from just last week.

  10. VirginiaCat

    Those who are screaming for a rematch with Duke are delusional. A rematch would be more competitive, but the same end result. Just being objective. We were excoriated on the recruiting trail last year and it will likely haunt us in the tournament. Best case scenario is Duke to get upset before we face them. Without Duke, I like our chances as much as any other team. One thing that has not gotten much attention is the injury to Bolden. That could be a significant factor if he is unable to play.

    1. StillBP

      So you think another team is capable of upsetting them before they get to us but you don’t think we can beat them? We are a very different team than we were the first game of the season. Our play has improved. Their play has not. Bring em on, and no I’m not delusional. I won’t guarantee a win but that’s not because I don’t believe we can win.

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      I’m beginning to thing VCat is also Slater/BoB/Combat Medic. He never has anything positive to say it seems.

    3. BigolBlue

      you idiots think because someone has a real opinion that isnt 100 positive it has to be me. So someone isnt confident about playing a team that clobbered uk and mismatches all over the court. Come on guys. Atleast think if an opinion is a decent one before you say its bob

    4. syrin23

      You are letting your PTSD speak for you. Duke is going to be one of the first teams to be “upset”.

    5. UKLugo

      I agrre and think we would lose. But I want the chance.

    6. BigolBlue

      Agree virginia

    7. 4everUKblue

      BigolSlaterMedic, what we all dislike most about you is your opinion is 100% negative when it comes to UK. Why don’t you restrict you opinion to your team’s fansite….cardchronicles.

  11. bigbluebanana

    Give me UK, in full stride with RT back against anyone. N E 1

    1. bigblue2284

      If you don’t think duke wins a rematch 8 out 10 times against UK you don’t know basketball. Can UK win? Of course, it’s not likely though. Talent typically wins out and they have a wealth of it, UK does not I’m sorry to say. No one on UK’s team is as talented as their third best player Cam Reddish. UK would hit a scoring drought and get drummed most likely.

    2. bigbluebanana

      If you think dook wins 8 of 10 against us you may be packing an extra chromosome. Dook isn’t unbeatable, especially if they’re not hitting shots. Also, with Zion and TT our, we were the FAR superior team during that same stretch.

    3. bbn606

      We have improved 20 points since the beginning of the season. Unfortunately we need to improve by 35 points to beat Duke.

    4. mashburnfan1

      To the point BBB is making. The wildcard is Reddish. He is up and down and is almost guaranteed to have one and probably 2 games where he shoots 3-14 or so, has all year long. If we catch them on one of those nights and ZIon and RJ are not like 35-45 from the field we can beat them. That said it will take a poor game from them and a very good one from us. However it is March and is why this is the best time of the year for sports because you never know from game to game. Is possible we play dUKe in title game and is possible both UK and dUKe are gone 1st weekend. Love the madness. I got tix for the Columbus Regional and some projections have both teams playing in that Regional {not against each other obviously}. Will give BBN a chance to put the hex on dUKe.

  12. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    Uh, his shoe EX-ploded, not imploded.

  13. VirginiaCat

    StillBP: I take your point that we have gotten better since the first game of the year. That said, I think there remains a large talent disparity that can’t be ignored. Can we beat Duke? Sure. Is it likely? No. I prefer to play Duke when we are in a position of strength and the odds favor us. Losing on national television in head-to-head competitions–potentially twice in one season–only serves to diminish our brand. All this bravado of “bring ’em on” suggests emotion over reason.

    As to your comments, Chris Gettlefinger, I represent myself and myself only. I have been an addent fan since the primordial big bang formed the universe and will match my shade of blue with anyone. I have said nothing that would question my loyalty unless you are one of those who believes that anything less that constant accolades is proof of heresy.

    1. syrin23

      Talent? Duke is an AWFUL outside shooting team, and an even WORSE FT shooting team. The same Louisville team we whacked had them down 23 points. You are caught up in Zion hype, and that’s it. A bad Syracuse team beat them at Duke with Zion. A terrible wake team almost beat them at Duke. So if bad shooting means “talented” then yeah. Our defense is light years better and so is our offense. Duke’s BEST game of the year even now was the game they played against us. They are not the team you think they are.

    2. 4everUKblue

      VACat must be related to Slater, aka BigolSlaterMedic and gashburnfan, they’re all equally negative toward UK even though they claim to be fans.

  14. jaws2

    I just hope we GET to Duke! We’ve got as good a shot as anyone, but there’s a lot chicken counting on here!

  15. Kat4Life

    ………and the horse he rode in on…..

  16. ScottGreene22

    If Kentucky can get the 1 seed in the South there’s no way the committee will make Puke the 2 in South with us. They always give Puke the easiest bracket and playing UK in Louisville to go to the final 4 would be one of if not the most difficult path.

    1. Matt10

      Great point and you’re probably right but they might also like the thought of a UK v Puke elite 8 game rematch.


    I hope the trainer remembers to wrap Zion’s shoes in duct tape before the game.

  18. CahillsCrossingNT

    Let’s just see if Kentucky can beat Ole Miss or turn the tables on Alabama first.

  19. Miller45

    Zion williamson is fat

  20. Ranch

    His amazing dunk at the beginning of the game…he walked, took three steps. Unreal!!!
