Anthony Grant on Kyle Wiltjer

If Kentucky is going to come up with a second consecutive convincing win in the state of Alabama tomorrow night, Kyle Wiltjer is going to have to play another big game.  I don’t mean Kyle Wiltjer should have a big game, could have a big game, or might have a big game; I mean Kyle Wiltjer has to have a big game.  Wiltjer was big against Auburn with Nerlens Noel in foul trouble and Willie Cauley-Stein back in Lexington, and he’ll be called upon for a repeat performance tomorrow night against the Crimson Tide.

Anthony Grant knows the importance of Wiltjer in Kentucky’s rotation, especially with Cauley-Stein expected to sit out again.  He spoke highly of Wiltjer’s game during this afternoon’s press conference.

“He is a really skilled player,” Grant said.  “I think everyone knows about his ability to shoot the basketball, but what is really impressive watching him on film is how good he is passing the ball. He gets his teammates involved. He is playing really well and we will have to do a good job defensively on him. They have other guys out there as well who are really good shooting the ball, so they have some good pieces and we will have to do a good job defensively.”

Kentucky fans are excited for another night of the aggressive Kyle Wiltjer, and it sounds like Anthony Grant is ready, too.

Bring it on.

    Grant is on the hot seat. A win over UK would be big.

    Wiltjer is horrible against top 50 teams. Cannot guard a folding chair.

    Translation: We are going to hack his arms off every time he touches the ball.

    I should change my name to One Trick Pony. I have used the “folding chair” example how many times now? Good news for readers though: I won’t post again until I have an original thought.

    Bama will try to lock down KW so others need to be ready to step up.

    3- I agree, he should be shown the door if they don’t make the tournament. Which I seriously doubt. Both he and Mark Fox at UGA came in same year as Cal did; only one tournament appearence for UGA and none for Alabama. It’s baffling to many how little each have produced and is one big reason the SEC is down.

    I am a Duke fan, and I come on this site to upset real UK fans. I wish players would start wearing the short shorts like they did in the old days.

    #17- “hmmm” is probably replying to an offensive post that was originally the fifteenth until it’s removal. Now making him appear to criticize himself.

    @kysportsradio – uh-oh RT @BFeldmanCBS: I am told by source l’ville asst Clint Hurtt got a call from NCAA &”They are pretty much throwing everything at him.”

    Forde is disputing Feldman. Also saying Hurtt will not be fired.

    If UL is on probation next season, will they be ranked?

    I hate uofl, but zero will happen to uofl. They may have to can Hurtt, but that is it.

    28- So Hurtt didn’t recruit anyone on UofL’s roster? (Miami recruit Teddy Brigewater?} Louisville has PLENTY to worry about right now.



  32. HAHA!!! Vacated Sugar Bowl!!
    8:35 pm January 21, 2013 Permalink

    Teddy will be deemed ineligible and all games he played in will be vacated.



  33. HAHA!!! Vacated Sugar Bowl!!

    Just playing. UL will not have to vacate.



  34. ClayCountyCat

    I have read up on the Hurtt situation. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have anything to do with uofl. The NCAA is not looking into anything he has done while coaching the tards. Also, the article I read said Teddy Bridgewater’s recruitment was looked at and nothing was found. Wish this were not true. Tards will get a black eye and have to fire Hurtt. But that will likely be it.

    Anyone hoping uofl will get in trouble is going to be disappointed. I hope they get hammered, but it is not going to happen. Anyone, that has followed this thing knows I am right. It is 100% about hurtt and the Canes.

    When WCS shoots free throws he has the ball flat in the palm of his hand. Any good shooter I have ever seen has the contact with the ball more with his finger tips, which allows him to have better touch on each shoot.
