If we had won by 30 — and honestly, I think we should have, if we actually concentrated on offense in the first of the second half — I would have put up a video of Conan tearing through Thulsa Doom’s forces at the Mounds. But instead, we’ll settle for some big cat feasting.
Kentucky wins 72-54. Josh Harrellson led all scorers with 15, and will prompt roughly 1000 calls into AM radio stations this weekend to complain about him not starting. Kentucky turned the ball over 23 times, to Indiana’s 19. Liggins had 3 assists, 0 steals and 6 turnovers; Porter had 4 assists, 2 steals and 2 turnovers.
Indiana is awful. They have been soundly beaten, and I can sleep much better for the rest of the season.
One more thing: My friend at the game told me that Jeff Sheppard was in a 3-point shooting contest at halftime. Jeff Sheppard made only 1 3-pointer. How shameful.
