ICYMI: Best of KSR College



-Against Mizzou, Alex Poythress had his best game since the Duke loss in November. Connor Link examined “The Reemergence of Alex Poythress” and what it might mean for the rest of Kentucky’s season.

Want some video evidence supporting the argument that Julius Mays is our guy during crunch time? You got it, dude. *Michelle Tanner voice*

-Have you been a little confused about Calipari and Antigua going to see some unknown high school players recently, such as Ryan Skovranko, Emmanuel Owootoah, and Dominique Hawkins? So was Jay Hochstetler, who wonders if this is evidence of Calipari changing his recruiting methods. 

-If you listened to the radio show this morning or read almost anything about Kentucky basketball last week, you know that dodgeball has been the buzzword around the Commonwealth. Tyler Johnson caught up with the elite UK Dodgeball team, who were the national runners-up last yearWes Hopkins can throw a dodgeball 81 mph. That’s faster than I drive.

-The baseball team finished their weekend jaunt in South Carolina with a win over Coastal Carolina. Derek Johnson has the game summary here.

    I like that Cal is going after some players that aren’t one and done players, but you cannot go to the other extreme either. Usually any player outside the top 50, most years anyone out of top 20, are not one an done. If he could get 2 or 3 from the 50 to 100 range then we could build something that would last. Of course he needs to still get 3 or more top 10 players each year too. I’m afraid he is going after players that will take four years to develop into Morehead type players or Western Ky players.

    Cal might be changing his recruiting methods. There may be hope for him and Kentucky!

    Im’ find with UK getting a couple of 5-stars every year – but it’s best for them and the program to allow them to be brought along slowly. As I’ve said all year – Poythress shoudl be a 10-15 minute player. He shoudl be allowed to acclimate to the game and by the time he’s a junior – he’ll be an All-American. To simplly throw the 18-year-old kid in against 21-22 year-olds and expect him to dominate like he did in high school is unrealistic.

    Kentucky has always been served well by kids who come here without 5 stars next to their name. Just look at this season. Right now Julius Mays has emerged as the glue to this team, the most consistent player and the leader. I don’t recall him lighting up recruiting call-in shows. Some kids take longer to develop – some players are at their best with age.

    The best teams are mixture of ages, backgrounds, experience, etc. It helps them not only on the court, but also as people. It’s good for the young guys to have older guys to look up to and learn from.

    I truly hope Cal is re-evaluating the way he does things. Maybe he sees the writing on the wall and knows the NBA will be altering their rule in the near future. Maybe he knows the NCAA may be trying to hold schools more accountable for keeping kids in school and seeing them graduate.

    Whatever the motivation – if Cal is indeed changing – then it’s good for the players, for the school, the fans and college basketball. Just imagine – Senior Night at Rupp Arena again. Break out a tape of Happy Chandler singing and I’ll be in tears!

    Thanks oldschool for having my back. I told ole Mitch that “Kentucky has always been served well by kids who come here without 5 stars”. That is exactly why I brought in Josh Carrier, Brandon Stockton, Shagari Allenye, Orbzut,Jarad Carter, ……………………………………………….. Really worked out for me.

    If we always have 5 or 6 of the best in Ky to go with 5 or 6 of the best in the nation on our Wildcats, that is a good mix…
