Jones Comes Off The Bench: Cats Roll

Just a couple days after the most disappointing weekend in Kentucky Sports history (EVER!) the men’s basketball team rights the ship and stomped a pretty awful Auburn team 78-54.  Terrence Jones came off the bench to set the UK freshmen scoring record with 35 and finally looked a bit more like he did early in the season – hitting threes and scoring down low.  Whether that came from the bench motivation or Drew Franklin’s twitter jinx, there’s no telling.  The Cats got up early and never looked back – though did look a little bored at times late first half and early second half.  We’ll be back with more (including the Matt Jones Call In Show,) but for now – enjoy Kentucky Basketball.

    So if Knight comes off the bench in the next game he will break the record again? Jones and Lamb both did it coming off the bench.

    I’m gonna be in the Gatlinburg area this weekend during the LSU game. If there’s anyone who lives near there and knows whether or not the UK game will be the regional broadcast in that area, I would appreciate the info. I know it’s on SEC Network, but am not sure that we’ll get the nod in that area.

    Looks like Knight and Jones should both shatter the freshman record of 9 twenty point games. Love it. Alot has changed in just a few years. I just can’t imagine a Tubby team with multiple freshman averaging close to twenty points. The line was 24.5, we win by 24. The hook screws the gamblers once again

    Also, loved how the announcers had to mention that we were basically the only team to recruit Kanter. Take the lie and run with it, ESPN. Gotta admit, I think Jay Williams is light years better than he was last year.

    Maybe this game will bring Jones out of his funk. Well, this and a hummer from a hottie.

    Jay Williams is an idiot. Jones is a stud, no doubt about it, but to say he has more “fire” than Cousins and therefore is better…I just don’t see it, guess I’m a Cousins homer.

    Found an article in the Houston Chron online newspaper explaining how difficult a task it will be for Emmert to clean up NCAA sports and how hard he has been working to accomplish his goals; enough to make a person sick!

    Hey Alan (14), you forgot to logout as Terrence and log in as yourself.

    All announcers suck except Gus Johnson, and I’d probably get tired of him too if he did all our games. National guys are never going to know as much about the team as the fans, thats why they suck.

    I’ll trade you 83 C.J. Leslie’s for one Terrence Jones. Any takers? I can’t imagine where UK would be with Leslie as our power forward this year. Thank you Cal for knowing a hell of a lot more than us fans. I remember how bummed I was when Leslie chose the Wolfpack over us because I thought he was going to be better than Jones. Boy was I wrong.

    Jimmer Fredette has 32 points at halftime tonight. We could have used him last year (or Meeks). Of course, we won’t hear anything about him from the national media because they’d rather talk about Kyrie Irving’s toe.

    El Cormanyo! Hope you have fun in G-Burg. I live in Knoxville and the local CBS affiliate, WVLT carries the SEC network Saturday games in Knoxville. They always carry Kentucky games locally. You’ll be able to find it there.

    Jason willams was a hell of a player, but he sucks as an announcer. It’s like having your buddy do color in the living room during the game.

    Only a matter of time before the NCAA finds out how good Jones is and the guy from Washington declares him ineligible.

    29) He is still not quite right from that motorcycle accident. He is much better than last year and he doesn’t say ‘Duke’ every other sentence. He’s got that goin for him.

    I thing the worst weekend in UK history was NOT this past weekend, but probably the weekend after the Death Penalty was announced in 1951(which I don’t remember), followed by the weekend after the press conference in 1989 when the ‘Kentucky’s Shame’ probation was announced (I DO remember what an utterly somber time that was)
