Coach Cal says Cats need to “stop looking at the score and play” in latest Lexy tweet


In his latest Lexy audio tweet (still not entirely sure what these are), Coach Cal manages to find the silver lining in the Cats’ loss yesterday at Vandy. He said that despite turnovers and defensive breakdowns, the Cats didn’t actually look that bad (it also helps that most of the top 25 doesn’t look that great, either). Terrence Jones and Josh Harrellson have recaptured the magic they exhibited earlier in the season and Brandon Knight and DeAndre Liggins are finally stepping up when the team needs them to. Doron and Darius? Well, “they need to be better.”

Cal also says that for the Cats to finish games, they need to “forget about scoring” and focus on executing on offense and defense. When they focus on the score, they psych themselves out and pass the ball like a hot potato around the perimeter. Perhaps the most comforting part of the recording? Cal’s insistence that the team is getting better and still has a month to tweak and get things right before the tournament.

    This team could lose in the first round or they could make the final eight… Just going to depend on the draw… They played well yesterday but had two bas possesions late that resulted in turnovers… They actually have one loss more than I thought they would have at this point…

    I wish we would hurry up and show the ability to just beat the crap out of someone instead of having every game so close at the end. Keep the petal down…use Polson and Hood to rest someone midway in each half….what would happen, we gonna lose our lead or the game?

    Will we be ‘sick’ if our precious one and dones get it together before the tournament starts? That’s what the old carnival barker/snake oil salesman Cal wants you to believe. Just keep all the blind sheep following along.

    Mr. Scwhump-If I recall you are the guy with all the integrity, correct? Look at your post above about Darius Miller. Would you ask him this question if you were standing right in front of him? Including the name you call him? I thought not…

    Cal says UK has a month to tweak their play before the tournament. Think they’ll get in the tournament?

    We played well, but Vandy played out of their minds yesterday. Come tourney time, we will be ok. Very little chance we’ll win it all, but I still think it is possible (with a little luck) for us to make a run to the final 4. Go Cats!

    #18 You are right Dores played like it was a must win game for them and it was. Vanderbilt plays its next 4 out of 5 on the road which includes a trip to Athens and Lexington. While Kentucky is finally going to hit 4 out of next 5 games at home. Wildcats let’s protect the home and maybe steal a win at Knoxville and all is well. I am not going to give up on these Cats and look ahead to next year. SEC Tournament and NCAA Tournament all teams start with 0-0 clean slate and if our fantastic freshman’s figure out how to win close games watch out. There is no one dominant team in college basketball. Go Cats.

    Vandy played thursday night, then plays Kentucky on 36 hrs. rest and wins. Everytime Kentucky loses there’s an excuse.

    Cal is right. It’s all mental now with these guys….not ‘how are we going to win this?’ but more like, ‘so how do we lose it this time around?

    Mayby Cal needs to hire a shrink for these guys.

    Why the losses, simple just do the research and look at the numbers, we have a big guy that thinks he is a point guard and loves to shoot the 3, in the losses in the SEC alone here are the numbers from the box score
    Team 3 pt Rb Total points Final score
    Vandy 1/4(6) 9 25 81 – 77 L
    Alabama 0/2(4) 9 17 68 -66 L
    Florida 1/4(6) 7 18 70 – 68 L
    Ole Miss 0/2(4) 12 22 71 – 69
    Georgia 2/5(6) 10 24 77 – 70

    3 point shooting percentage: 24%
    games lost if the 3’s were potential made 2’s not counting if a free throw is included 1 and that is georgia, and the final score could have been 77 -76, much better than 77 70

    maybe it is time for Cal to sit jones when he shoots the 3 and doesnt take it inside. Imagine what would happen if harrelson shot the 3 that much….
