FROM KSR STUDENT INTERN, CAROLINE HALL…
Cal talked about IU and the pressure that is on the Cats for tomorrow’s game at a press conference before practice today.
— Cal knows this game is going to be hard. “It’s going to be hard, it’s going to be a tough challenge, you don’t want to get in the back and fourth…you cant do that. Not in these kind of games. And it’s going to be new to them, it’s the first time in that building, it’s the first time on the road.”
— IU may be unbelievably tasteless but the boys can ball. They are currently undefeated, the fans and haters have been saying that IU is going to upset UK. Cal and the Cats do know what everyone is saying. “They have good guard play, they have good post play…..they are good, they have a really good team.”
— The Cats need to be ready for some on point defense and plays that will be thrown at them in the game. Cal said, “You’ve got to be ready for all kind of thing because he will through out all sort of things.”
— For some ridiculous reason, UK is only favored to win tomorrow’s game by 3.5…. even though they are No. 1 in the nation. But, something to take in to consideration is the fact that this is the first real game on the road for the Cats.
— “We are a young team 3 freshmen, 2 sophomores, its an easy pick…. All we have to do is try to play a good ball game on the road.”
— Last year wasn’t the best year for Cal’s Cats on the road, we get it, but this is a different team and Cal is keeping the guy’s heads on straight. Cal said, “We approach every game the same there is not a game on our schedule that’s is dealt with in any other fashion. We know it’s a hard game, our players know, I don’t have to tell them.”
Thank you IU for being our guinea pig road game. The Cats have a lot of pressure on them for tomorrow’s game but of course the Cats will prevail and kick their tacky, trash talking, pumpkin butts! GO CATS!
