Cats drop a crucial game, lose to Vandy 64-48

i-2

It was just that kind of night.

Vandy couldn’t miss and the Cats couldn’t hit anything. Led by Dai-Jon Parker and Kevin Bright, Vandy embarrassed Kentucky 64-48 tonight in front of what was essentially a home crowd for the Cats. The loss puts Kentucky’s chances of making the tournament into serious jeopardy, making for what will be a white-knuckled Selection Sunday.

More throughout the night…

    Mays and Harrow a combined 3 of 22. Poythress 6 shots, WCS 5 shots total. 50% on Free throws. That says it all.

    I’m disappointed this team never bought into the fact that the front of their jerseys said “Kentucky” and it was an honor and a privilege to play for us. They played like guys in an AAU tourney where the winner didn’t matter.

    WHAT HAPPENED? we had 7 days to prepare and came out and scored 48 points against a team I STILL refuse to take seriously, even with Vanderbilt beating us 16 tonight and eliminating last year’s team. Anyone else hoping we don’t make the tournament and Cal rejects the NIT?

    Let me begin by saying that I’m very glad that I have a wife, kids and a very beautiful and full life to come home to tonight after this national embarrassment at the hands of a 15-16 Vanderbilt team. All the jokes made at the expense of Kevin Stallings will be on us tonight in one of the most miserable performances in the history of UK basketball. Actually it is quite difficult to think of a more insipid performance in our history. So, now it comes time to write the epitaph on this excruciatingly painful and uninspiring season. What to say? NIT bid? Please, no, decline it so that this team can be no more and so that Cal can go to Gethsemani and take a week or two to meditate and reflect upon how the all-access circus mentality has destroyed our ability to build a fundamentally sound, hungry and determined basketball team less than one-year after we dominated the sport….how the “players first I’d never want to offend an aspiring 5-star basketball recruit” has decimated a coaches ability to mold “ballers” into real basketball players and men who have balls and know what it takes to win….and what an honor and privilege it is to wear the blue and white….etc.etc.etc…I sincerely hope that this is the last basketball game we’ll ever see this group play…not because I hate these kids or want to see them fail…but because they’re not ready for this stage, they never were ready for it, and the circus into which they we’re thrown never gave them a chance….it is time to scrap that script, close out this year, and begin again next year with the business-THE SOLE BUSINESS-of learning how to become a team and win basketball games.

    I am a CAT fan, live and die with the CATS, and tonight I died with the CATS. Worse I have seen since BG. Ship these guys out and lets move on to next year. Aby game after this will end in the same way so put the gear up for the year.

    Ryan Harrow can be solely blamed for this lost. PG are supposed to pass first and always look for the open player. Harrow failed to do this TOO many times, repeatedly leaving someone wide open on the wing and resulting in a weak “drive” to the lane. Absolutely disgusted with this game. Love my CATS but this kind of loss CANNOT happen. Period. On on U of K

    This team only lacked a couple things to be special. Heart for one, caring about the “team” more than personal stats, a genuine liking of each other. Cal should not have ever said he wouldnt use the bench cause he like winning to much. Really Cal? Where were we winning all those games? Use the bench and if the bench isnt good enough to use thats on you. I would rather lose with less talent but more heart than win with a couple players that are hard to watch because they are so selfish. Its just a game folks. Life goes on.

    Btw way
    Would not be good for you to do this two years in a row. Better get control of next years team like uh NOW

    16, Don’t worry your not the only one. Kentucky doesn’t deserve to make it. No defense at all. This team is flat out sad. Archie has been the only one trying. Rest of them just stand around the whole damn game.

    Sadly, Cal is a very mediocre coach. He needs to overwhelm the other team with talent. Could not do it this year. Luckily, next year he will have the talent and will be able to to go back to being pompus again.

These guys were just too young and it was bound to happen. They tried the best that most usual freshman can. But overall, man, Im just not upset. Anyone else?

    No leadership again leads to another Billy Gillespian effort.

    Bad play by ALL cats and poor coaching.

    Vandy was shooting lights out because there was NO defense all night long.

    What a joke this team was.

    Glad this season is over.

    Hey Cal, GET SOME PLAYERS FOR THE 2014 class because another year like THIS ONE is UNACCEPTABLE! Karl Towns doesn’t deserve to have to play with scrubs after a big class comes in like Nerlens had to do.

    Who cares that the team lost. This is a player’s first program. Goodwin might have upped his stock and the real celebration takes place on draft night UK fans.

    By the way, who cares how many draft picks we have..who cares…I could care less about the NBA crap…its a team game…they don’t give you points because you have five potential draft picks on the team..jeez..stupid post.

    The fact is that this team never learned how to play defense. If they had, they may have had a prayer of having a decent season, in spite of how bad their offense looked most of the season. I sincerely hope Cal lays it on the line with this next batch of blue chips that they better be ready to play some D.

    Come on Tyler…you are an intelligent person…but the very idea of UK being given any chance to make the tournament after that game is an affront to the very idea of the tournament. This team has no chance of making the field, nor should they. Cal needs to admit that he bombed with this team from day one with his UK is larger than life all-access garbage…he lost his focus on being a basketball coach and building teams over time and went Hollywood….and many will say he never had it in the first place. However, I don’t believe that and am willing to give him credit….he needs to return to the fundamentals and shut everything else out if he wants to get back to winning….I don’t care if it loses us 5-star recruits as long as the guys that are coming are tough, getting coached properly and wear the uniform with pride.

    Not much to say except this season felt like an episode from “when keeping it real goes wrong”.

    We not deserve a NCAA bid, and know we hopefully won’t get one.
    We don’t want to be embarrassed in a playoff game in Dayton…wrap it up we are done. We don’t want that. Don’t accept an Nit bid either.

    Harrow needs to transfer. Worst point guard for cal EVER!

    Hood should have went o Florida.

    Please please let Goodwin & POYTHRESS go pro. GARBAGE EFFORT FROM POYTHRESS ALL SEASON!

    You need three things besides great defense to win big time.
    A great point guard, the ability to shoot the three, and good post game. If we don’t get that next year, we will suck again regardless of talent. Hopefully Wiltjer and WCS come back. The rest can go.

    This team got exactly what they deserved. The best thing that can happen to the University of Kentucky is that this is the last basketball they play this year. This group outside of Nerlens did nothing but embarrass the school time after time . Bosshog said it well , they just refuse to be a team. They did not live up to their hype and they gave up time and time again. To the UK fan that name on the jersey means something and we got hosed with players who did not care what it means to us. Good bye and good riddance as next year looks promising. Just hope enough of them are gone to get that kid from Madison Central as he understands what it means to wear that jersey.

I actually turned off the game at the 16.50mmark in the second half of the horrible effort tonight. I see no NBA tallent on this team at all. Not this team, noway. For so much that was on the line and to play such heartless basketball, the team, Coach Cal, asst. coaches should be ashamed, total clueless, no heart, most careless team in UK history. I hope someone who talks to these guys will tell them, you just wasted your shot to the NBA. Coach love ya man but you have done a horrible job this year, so yoou need to look in the mirror as well.

    With the exception of a couple of players who gave 100% effort, this team has been soft and selfish all season. They got a pass the first half of the year because they are young and hadn’t played together, but since then, there has been no growth, no determination, no passion or desire to get better as a team and as individuals. They are a good bunch a guys, but not very serious about team building.

    The people on this site saying how much they hate this player or that player are sad, sad, human beings. This team was never given a chance to succeed. I am not saying that Calipari is on the hot seat, far from it. But the team on the floor tonight was a direct result of Calipari not coaching this team or putting the players first as he is want to say. You don’t put the players first by teaching them that you are a star so I will threaten you but not follow through with my threats. He just said the other day that he couldn’t use the bench because he cared more about winning than teaching players a lesson (paraphrased). Archie and Ryan driving on fourteen guys have been their m.o. all season and he wasn’t able to break them of that habit. Tell me how not breaking them of that habit was a player first move? One of the most frustrating things for me this season was our best free throw shooter refused to get to the line even though he had ample opportunity all season. No one on the team has a better pump fake than Julius, but only once this year did he actually draw the foul from the defender who was off their feet. He should have lived on the free throw line. Where was the coaching to have him do this? Harrow tonight, drove one time when their was no defense beyond his man, and passed up one opportunity to do the same later. Frustrating. Cal, you are better than this!

    Team didn’t have it in them this year. A lot of talent, not a lot of heart. Flashes of fight, got frustrated too easily under pressure. It’s a lesson. No matter how talented you are, you can’t let it get to you. Buy in, play like every possession is your last.

    Next years team will do UK proud on the court. As it is, this year wasn’t our year. Still great kids off the court and we should wish them nothing but the best.

    Sean Woods was right all along! We owe him a big apology. Always trust an unforgettable who clearly cares more than this group. This assembled group of players (not team) does not deserve an invite to the big dance. A wasted year!!!!!

    What an embaressment this season has been. These kids were never ready for the stage they were thrust upon. Not together enough, not tough enough and no experienced upperclassmen to guide them through the hard times. Time to ditch the Hollywood routine and get back to fundemental ballin’. Cal needs to re-think his 5 stars or nothing program and find some tough-minded kids who want to be coached and be winners. No NCAA bid and no NIT. Can’t wait for next season. Go Big Blue!

    I agree with 27. A lot of this is on Calipari….his ego is atrocious….I’m for the NIT though….it might humble him. Harrow is terrible, but several of them were awful tonight. And the dribble-drive is garbage….free-lancing, one-on-one crap. Get an offense Cal…you are a great marketer, recruiter, and ambassador….but your offense sucks. Everyone gripes about Goodwin and his propensity for turning the ball over, but he is the most tailor-made for his garbage offense…it’s out-of-control rabbit ball. I like Cal, but a lot this is on him.

    215. I love UK, but don’t wear blue tinted glasses. Call a bust, a bust, even if they play for UK. Goodwin reminds me of Roderick Rhodes, a great play squeezed between 11 terrible plays. UK, as a team, cannot afford that ratio. I don’t know inside info like MATT JONES might, but watch Coach on the sideline trying to communicate with some of these guys and you can tell they might hear him, but just didn’t listen. Watch Cauly-Stein on the sideline pleading with his teammates, but that too fell on deaf ears. As a teammate, there is nothing worse than playing with a hard headed, selfish, I’m going to get mine teammate.

    There are times I like coming here, and there’s times I know to stay the hell away.

    Collectively, KSR is like that uncle who gets a few too many beers under his belt during a game, and starts yelling at the TV. You can laugh at him and have a great time during a win… but he’s going to get a little crazy and say things that makes everyone uncomfortable when you lose an Elite 8 game to a West Virginia or a UConn.

    I’ve been just as disappointed by the results of this season as anyone in BBN…but some of these comments are horrible.

    I don’t care if they were playing in “Farmer Bob’s Barnyard Basketball Tournament” – these are still my Kentucky Wildcats and I’ll watch and cheer for them.

    You who are attacking these players personally and saying you’ll refuse to root for them in the NIT…all I can say is, “There’s the door, don’t let it hit you on the way out – just don’t come back when we are winning again”

    And to the idiot that suggested some of our players commit suicide…well, I spent the afternoon in the hospital with a family who’s Dad did kill himself. You sir are a moron and a scumbag – wish I could reach across the internet and slap the stupid out of you.

    I say if we get an NIT bid we turn it down. This team doesn’t deserve another chance. They need to be remembered as “The Team with no heart” The Heartless 5! If we do get in to the big dance, we will end up drawing a Temple or Virginia and lose in the play in game. I’m ready for this season to be over and look forward to next year. Enough is enough!

    To the UL/Hoosier fans flaming this site. Only one of you can possibly end the season on a happy note so be ready to eat sht. We had a rough year but it doesn’t diminish our 2012 championship and neither of you have one anything since before your current players were born.
    I feel bad for our players but I agree with the person that said they were not ready for the stage that is Kentucky basketball. Man up over the summer and come back next year.

    This is why i hardly come here any more. All this trash talking about KY – past KY coaches, current KY players. And none of it is witty or insightful. “They suck”, ‘couldn’t guard my grandma’, etc. We won the NCAA last year, after an elite 8 and final four, and you would think KY was at the end of the Tubby era.

    Hopefully, the players will learn how to play basketball & team basketball better, and Cal can figure out that if it works don’t scrap it.

    Pitino is a really good coach who has his team peaking around tournament time. Give him his due. He can flat out coach. They got the #1 defense in the country, and they don’t look more physically talented than many other teams. Oh, yeah. And they can shoot free-throws.

    Louisville in still in the state of KY last I heard. I’m rooting for our little bro.

    As much heat as Archie takes,you can’t fault him, or WCS for effort. Give me those two guys back with one of the greatest recruiting classes in history coming in, and I’d take my chances. Cal does not click with Poythress and Harrow, they need to transfer or pray to God they get drafted. Noel should go get paid while he can. This team as a whole never got the whole KENTUCKY concept. The whole greatest tradition thing went over their heads and never stuck. At the end of they day, Kentucky teams must remember what KENTUCKY stands for, this group did not.

    Glad we had 3 great practices leading up to this. There is no way with Cals recruiting talent and us being UK that we should not be in the tourney. Sad to say NCAA bball is at its worst in 30 years yet this combo will not, and does not deserve to be, in the tourney. I am glad we have Cal but never thought much of his actual coaching ability. I was impressed when he and the staff beat OSU and UNC back to back a couple years ago but Motta is horrible as well.

What a disappointment did this team bring me ! Better luck next year

    Not much we can do but look to next year. Archie and Alex were just too young to make a significant impact. Kyle, well he is what he is, no defence, and if he is hot on the permiter, things look good.

    Petty dispointed that that a team with 3 McDonalds All American’s can’t baat a team without a SINGLE member.

    I am sure Nashville will not meet their revenue numbers: Why;Kentucky fans will exit in mass

    Nashville and Kentucky will feel this….Hoping Vandy fans feel the void, guessing this won’t happen
