Kentucky 86, Arkansas 63, Anthony Davis 27

January 17th, 2012. Write that date down.

This was the game we’ve been waiting for, where the Cats put it all together and dominated from start to finish. Anthony Davis had the best game of his career with 27 points on 10-of-12 shooting with 14 rebounds and 7 blocks. He’s now UK’s single season shot block leader and he’s on pace to break Dikembe Mutombo’s record of 10,567 blocks in a basketball career.

Marquis Teague was the only one of the Big Six to not score in double figures, but he was a pass-first guard tonight, which led to nine assists and just three turnovers. Great game, young fella.

Beisner will be by soon with more — assuming he isn’t watching Justified.

Go out and spend that money you just won on the Cats covering!

    Teague played great tonight. If he plays like that for the rest of the year, it’ll be trouble. Davis was obviously incredible. I was really impressed with Jones too. Even if his offense isn’t 100% right now, he’s rebounding and blocking shots like crazy. Darius played really well at the beginning of each half. He’s money on the block and when his shot starts falling he’ll be scary. Lamb’s shot has been off lately but he’s still finding ways to score. Once he gets into rhythm, we’ll be nearly unbeatable.

    I actually enjoyed his game commentary.
    Playing pretty well helped a bit too.

    At this point, we sort of expect Davis to be otherworldly. Insanely good game even for him. But I really like what Teague did tonight. When Teague plays like that, UK is basically unbeatable.

    I have been critical of Teague over the season for turnovers and bad shots. Tonight, he shut me up. He distributed the ball extremely well, hit free throws, and he made some extremely clutch last second shots. Great, great job Mr. Teague.

    What really happened is Ark played untempo and their 40 mins. of hell was turned into 40 mins of heaven for UK. Teams that play man and full court press us will get toasted by the cats. That was fun to watch. Hopefully more teams will try and run with us and press us moving forward. Besides a few sloppy TOs and some lax D in the 2nd hal , this was a dominating performance against an NCAA bubble team. Anthony Davis is phenomenal. I wish we could enjoy watching him for 4 years.

    Best game we’ve played since unc! Loved teague tonite. Hewas the floor general we’ve wanted all year. Jones effort was much better. Davis was ridiculous. Everyone brings it like that every night and we will hang #8. nybody else notice John pelfrey in the band?

    Great win for the Cats tonight. AD is frickin’ BEAST!!!!! This is the most complete game in a while, and very nice to see everyone get busy.

    Jones had 13 and 9. He’s looking much better.

    I’d say it’d be hard to spend money you won on the Cats covering if you’re still down for the year, unless you/they did an insane bet, my guess, it didn’t happen #pennies



  21. Rank them in reverse order after the Cats
    11:39 pm January 17, 2012 Permalink

    #8, great link.

    Those of you who put votes in, be sure to rank McDermott, Robinson, Sullinger, Jones III, and Machado AT THE BOTTOM, since higher ranked players are awarded more points. Pretty much put AD/KG at the top, and then put your real feelings in reverse order.

    GREAT game tonight, Teague played like a Nat’l Champ PG, Miller absolutely set the tone for the whole night int he first 3-4 minutes, and Jones was in attack mode (until maybe halfway through the 2nd, looked like the pinky was bothering him).

    #21. Thanks for including those tips! Put Mcdermott last, Robinson next to last, sullinger etc … start filling in 3, 4 etc with zeller, henson etc.

    Come on BBN! Don’t sleep until we have righted this:

    I wish more teams played up tempo. This was fun and Saturday will be just the opposite. Bama will slow it WAY down. Tonight sure was fun though.

    Mentioned this in the previous thread but it bears repeating…AD absolutely dominated this game without fouling.
    No fouls.
    Zip.
    Unbelievable.

    @26
    That’s a good point, which makes it all that more important that UK has had to play some grind-it-out halfcourt games.
    They’ve become pretty good at playing that style, too.

    I have not had one negative thing to say about or team or coaching staff the entire year.But if we win by two or three points Sat and Teague or Jones have a bad game you negative people well be on here bashing them.I hate that.ksr will do the same thing.My guess Matt Jones will be running his mouth tomorrow about how bad MKG played. After he sucks him off after every other game this year,that he played good in.

    Just as this pic suggests. Flop. This year seems to be, much more than past seasons, the year of the flop in college basketball. The most disturbing part of it is the officials are allowing it to happen on a broad basis. It takes away from the game as it was meant to be. Dribble, drive, flop. Who has not noticed it?



  35. DrewFranklinbetsPennies

    The flop is the worst call in college basketball, and it’s not even close. It is a complete joke. It’s “who can do the best acting job and get rewarded for it” It’s not basketball and for the refs to allow it, is sickening. Let them play. 90% are flops. This call has to get out of college basketball, it’s ruining the game. P.B.P
