Kentucky didn’t like Morehead State’s vibe, wins 81-70


(UKAthletics.com)

Sean Woods shook up Big Blue Nation during his media teleconference on Monday when he criticized Kentucky’s players for acting with a sense of entitlement at the BBN Cares WKYT telethon for Hurricane Sandy relief.

“They didn’t act like Kentucky basketball players,” Woods said of the 2012-13 team.

On Wednesday night, Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, Archie Goodwin and the bunch showed Woods that they are, in fact, Kentucky Wildcats, when UK defeated Woods’ Morehead State team, 81-70.  It wasn’t quite the blowout we expected, though.  Kentucky needed a second half surge and an insane amount of fouls to pull away from the Eagles to seal the 11-point victory.

Let’s talk about it…

  Foul.

  It was an ugly first half for the Wildcats, one that had fans slightly worried about the 53-game home winning streak.  After opening the game with a 6-0 lead, Kentucky turned the ball over five times on seven possessions and trailed Morehead State 16-6 after the first ten minutes.  Morehead hung on to the lead until Kentucky regained it at 28-27 with just 1:46 left in the half.  A jumper from Maurice Lewis-Briggs put the Eagles up 31-30 with 13 seconds left in the first but Archie Goodwin quickly responded with a sick crossover and finish to give Kentucky a 32-31 lead at the break.

  Foul.

  Morehead State pulled ahead of Kentucky again in the second half, but foul trouble caught up to the Eagles early in the period.  Kentucky found itself in the double-bonus with 14 minutes left in the game — 14 MINUTES!!! — and Kentucky capitalized on the free throws.  In the end, UK shot 31-of-41 from the foul line to Morehead’s 14-of-16 at the stripe, while Morehead committed 32 fouls to Kentucky’s 12 in the game.  There’s your storyline.  Sean Woods’ ‘Hack-A-Cat’ gameplan didn’t pan out.

  Before the Kentucky game… Morehead State 95 fouls, Opponents 58

  Foul.

  Lane violation.

  Despite the significant differential in free throws, Morehead still could’ve pulled this one off if not for Archie Goodwin.  Goodwin saved the Cats from defeat by scoring a career-high 28 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the field.  He got to the basket at will, picking up a shooting foul on seemingly every drive, and knocked down 12 of his 17 free throw attempts.

He had this to say after the game: “That’s just one of the teams you can’t lose to, especially at a time like this. We came out in the second half, brought it together and we said we have to step it up and that’s what we did.”

  Foul.

  Lane violation.

  Travel. No, correction. Foul.

  This is not how a coach should talk to a player.  If Woods knew his UK history, he’d know it’s not okay for a coach to lash out like that.

Afterwards, Woods said he was trying to calm his player down.  Yeah.  Right.  And when I lock my bedroom door to watch Kate Upton’s YouTube videos, she is trying to sleep with me.

  Put another tally mark in the Alex Poythress 20-point games column.  Poythress’s 20-point night against Morehead was his third consecutive 20-point game of the season.  I’m starting to believe he can score whenever he wants to, no matter who is in his way.

  Calipari called it Archie and Alex’s night.  He said, “We threw Archie the ball.  We said, ‘We’re posting Alex and we’re posting Archie.  The rest of you dudes get out of the way.  If you want to win, you’ll figure out stuff to do.’  This isn’t brain surgery.  Alex and Archie had it going, you keep going to him.  My staff, the whole time, was saying, ‘You know it’s Archie and Alex’  “I know, I know.  What do you want me to do?  These other guys are out on the court.  You should let them touch the ball a little bit.”

  Foul. Morehead State, No. 20.  Grabbing the jersey.  Two shots.

  Kentucky was without Ryan Harrow for the third full game this season.  Harrow, who has been dealing with illness/personal issues since the season began, returned home to be with his family to tend to “family issues.”   Calipari said Harrow’s mother is concerned about him and wants to make sure he’s okay. Cal expects Harrow back this weekend but he won’t rejoin the team before Kentucky’s Friday night game against LIU-Brooklyn.

As we saw tonight and in the last game against Lafayette, Kentucky will be fine without Harrow in its next game.  But missing the three “cupcake” home games has set Harrow back in his development and progression at the point guard spot.  These early regular season games are crucial for such a young team like Kentucky, and even though they’re winning, the Cats are missing out on the opportunity to work on developing a chemistry and rhythm with their point guard.  If Harrow returns to game action next week, he’ll be thrown into the fire on the road at Notre Dame and at home against a top 25 Baylor team, and we’ll be wishing he had been around for Kentucky’s first five games.

With that said, we wish Ryan the best in overcoming whatever has kept him out lately and we look forward to seeing him back on the court soon.

  Foul. Two shots.

  Nerlens Noel posted another impressive stat line: 9 points, 11 rebounds, 6 blocks, 4 assists, 3 steals

“It took us a little bit to get used to,” Noel said of Morehead’s tough style of play. “We started off shooting too many jumpers but at the start of the second half, coach really got into us and just really told us we have to toughen up. I think that’s what we did.”

  Calipari said the team will do Thanksgiving dinner at his house (salad, I assume) and then there is a movie he wants them to go see.  The movie?  Lincoln.  Are you surprised?  No.  Cal loves Lincoln.

  Foul.  Two shots.

  After the game, Calipari told Kyle Wiltjer, “Kyle, you know I love you, but you’re not playing guarding that way.”  He said if Wiltjer isn’t stopping his man, he’s sitting.

  Foul.

  Before we part ways, let’s talk UK coaching search for a minute.  Two sources have told KSR that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart told Kentucky he isn’t interested in the job.  That leaves Sonny Dykes, Butch Jones, the mystery NFL name, and another unknown at the top of Kentucky’s list. You can expect to hear an update next week once college football’s regular season ends for the non-Big East schools.  If you don’t hear anything new next week, that could mean Butch Jones is the name to watch.  Jones and Cincinnati have two games left in the regular season, unlike the other candidates, so Kentucky would have to wait to an extra week to pursue Butch Jones.

   Everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving weekend.  It’ll be a slow day on KSR here tomorrow but we’d still love to have you if you need a break from pretending to enjoy your in-laws’ cooking.  We’ll be here waiting for you, because that’s what we do.

Three Gobbles.

    Now that we have dispatched Morehead St. its time to turn our attention to the throw up Tennessee Orange. I used to get sick of those posts about who was president the last time we beat Tennessee or that Matt Jones was in diapers the last time we beat Tennessee. Now that we have a streak here is my list.
    The Streak
    The last time TN beat KY in football was 2010. KY now has the streak that was once dominated by “Ronald Reagan was president.” Now the shoe’s on the other foot. Here is my list of how much our world has changed since the last time TN beat us in football.
    10. You could still eat Hostess Twinkies.
    9. Matt Jones was still a big TV star.
    8. Charlie Sheen was still a big TV star.
    7. Matt Roark was not yet a legend.
    6. Kige Ramsey was at his “Youtube Sports” peak.
    5. Joker Phillips was a bowl coach.
    4. Vanderbilt sucked at football.
    3. UK had 14 fewer players in the NBA.
    2. We didn’t know who Johnny Short was and “Bigguns” was a magazine that Al Bundy looked at.
    1. Drew Franklin was still in the gutter waiting for Matt Jones to rescue him.

    Sorry, but I just can’t get excited about Butch Jones as the next football coach, and I doubt if most of the fan base would disagree with me. Dude couldn’t even win in the Big East. Just another example of Barnhart mailing it in for the football program if he hires Jones, IMO. I would take Fulmer over Jones – at least Fulmer has demonstrated an ability to win consistently in a real conference.

    I never worried we’d lose, but I was worried about the 3-point streak for a while. And I was worried about our player’s safety. Ever since Cal got here, our guys get hacked under the basket relentlessly, and we can knocked to the floor on countless drives and called for a charge. Our guys are so afraid of charging that they’re not driving, which results in a lack of open lobs and 3-point shooters when defenders would normally sag to the driver. Refs seem to be trying to assert their dominance over our style of play to the detriment of the safety of our guys. Yes, I know Woods’ team was called for tons of fouls, but if I remember correctly, that was his play style at his last team when we played them, and many of those fouls were hugely blatant.

    Archie was huge for us, but so were Alex’s periodic spurts of greatness and consistency from the foul line. Give them the ball and everyone else get open for shots/dunks and LEARN TO REBOUND WITH 2 HANDS!

Petrino is the absolute best coach out there we can get and he offered to sign a contract with UK that says if he leaves before the end of the contract he would pay back ALL the money UK has paid him. Thats a fact. Mitch and KSR are holding out on us.

    It was great prep for the Louisville game. That’s exactly how Pitino will play this team. Davis and Kidd-G were getting shoved into the cheerleaders last year too. It should be called but if not, you have to play anyway.

    Woods would be a good replacement for Pitino after he expires at Louisville. He will get some bad publicity for shoving his player tonight, but that will pass.

    Maybe its my age…but i say if anyone has earned the right to comment on the UK players vibe…it’s Sean Woods…he was talking about kids in general and using them as an example…his freaking jersey dont hang in Rupp for no reason. ill take my hat off to any Hoosier boy that comes south to wear the Big BLUE. He’s a tough coach. Looked to me like he had his undermanned team damn well prepared to play against a superior foe. they played hard and played tough. anyone that knows history knows he played the agressive slapping hacking defense that pitino and nolan richardson were known for “back in the day”…it puts the onus on the refs to make the call. our young kids will grow from this experience. he did Cal a favor. as far as his pushing the kid….he went up to the edge but i dont think he went over…the kid was disregarding his coaches orders and mouthing back….he deserved to have his coach get in his face….you wanna get in your coaches face…then get ready to get dressed down…what doesnt kill him will make him stronger (figeratively and literally)

    #22, well said. I am fairly young, and I know that kids these days are very different. In 1995, this encounter is a non-story. However, America has become passive; therefore, a slight shove is all the rage. No one knows what was said/done to draw the ire of Woods. I am sure that merely fouling out isn’t enough; there was something else going on. Sean Woods will either lose his job or be suspended because of our passive, politically correct society. I have been physically disciplined by adults that were not my parents, and to me, it was just normal (a couple went too far). This would be considered a “love tap” 20 years ago. As far as the game goes, they were physical, and they fouled a lot. So what? What about Kentucky milking the clock in 2008 @ Tennessee, and almost winning? Sometimes, a strategy works, and it worked tonight. Kentucky needed it, because guess what, another team will play like this.

    Face it, we’re gonna lose some games this year. That causes Cal some stress already and he knew this team wasn’t as good as last year. Just hate to see RH run his mouth about recruiting violations or whatever to get something started. PLEASE tell me I’m wrong.

    10 – Not saying we shouldn’t hire Bobby P…..but he’s not going back to UL even if Charlie Strong left town. Jurich might not be an idiot, but he BURNED way too many bridges the first time he left town. That’s not happening.

    12 – Mitch could have talked to Petrino everyday and we wouldn’t know any different. The point is that Butch Jones is just as much of a candidate as Petrino or any of them are at this point. The reason we don’t know anything is because Mitch isn’t making this hiring public or consulting with anyone. That’s why there aren’t any REAL SOURCES on this hire.

    31 – Please go away and support your UL team. Harrow may have issues, but what you are suggesting isn’t one of them.

    Not Butch Jones. His type of offense will not succeed in the SEC. Need an innovative offensive-minded coach who has won as a head coach at whatever level. Not an unproven coordinator with no HC experience. Just had that with Joker. Disaster. Take Sonny Dykes and be done with it. Kentucky can’t get anyone better than tnat. This program is not that attractive in comparison with just about any other SEC school amd more than half the programs in the BCS.

    TOTALLY DISAGREE with you, Drew, about Woods being in that kids’ face. We were close to the bench and that kid was mouthing off about everything, even when sitting on the bench. When parents are once again free to spank their kids without fear of reprisal from some nosy SOB, maybe then we’ll have respectful kids again. This is his first year there and that kid was clearly challenging Woods’ authority on the bench, whether they showed it on TV or not.

    In my humble opinion- NOel needs to come back next year because he needs to gain some muscle and better hands. He is pushed around by the big men in college. How can he play in the NBA? Sure he can jump and run but he has problems shooting freethrows and so far hasn’t shown he can shoot jumb shots.
    I not critizing him but just observing him.
    Wiltzer is not ready for the NBA either.
    Poythress and Goodwin are already ready. Just need to fine tune their game.

    Calipari does the same thing about getting in a players face. Most coaches do. Some boys respond better to it others don’t. Some want to be patted on the back and talked to calmly about their mistakes. Or bad play. MOst coaches like to do a lot of cursing in the players faces.

    20 the problem was they had never been in as physical game before. These are freshmen. People think that they are veterans that have been playing for a year or two already. Sure they have talent, that is the reason they won the game. Poythress and Goodwin are ready for the NBA after this year. Noel needs some muscle.

Just see way too many holes on this team to have another great season. Only Goodwin and Poythres are NBA level players at this point. Noel and Cauley-Stein will get there eventually, but nowhere close at this point.

Poor showing by Woods who was emotional for running his mouth before the game.

    This team could easily drop 9-10 games, not surprising when you send that many players to the NBA, but it’s still gonna be a wild ride of excitement watching these players develop. Archie, AlPo & NN maybe the only legit 1st rounders.

    Harrow, wrapped up over some relationship issue and buckled under the pressure of being UK’s PG, only illness is, ‘young man’s broken heart syndrome’…Hey Harrow, sluts are like assist…they’re only fun when you pass them off to a teammate and they score! Get over it!

    That punk for Morehead didn’t deserve to be justified on national TV, should of sent his mouthy face to the shower and been ripped in the privacy of the locker room, after the game. But I do find it ironic a former UK legend wanting respect from current UK players can’t even get the same respect from his own players! Karma to the fullest.

    13) I was thinking the exact same thing last night. I could see Hood easily transferring after this semester, giving him 1 1/2yrs of eligibility remaining. A school like Purdue, or maybe an Atlantic 10 team, could be a great fit for Hood. I could easily see Harrow transferring again, after this semester. It’s pretty obvious he’s not going to be drafted after this season, and with the Harrison bros coming in, he’ll be a back up next season.

    Did you see the way the Morehead player casually waved at Goodwin as he drove by him toward the basket? Woods would not have been doing his job if he hadn’t gotten in the kids face.

    Harrow’s mother comimg to Lexinton to take him home is not a good sign for him or UK. My guess is that this is a huge sign of family frustration with his status at UK. We may have seen the last of him in UK uniform. Hate to be pessimistic BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “This is not how a coach should talk to a player.” What do you know about coaching, Drew? Yup, nothing.

    It is time to grow up Ryan. I bet if you suck it up and do what Cal tells you, your voice will even be deeper by the end of the year.

    #34, Once upon a time, KSR actually had some decent writers in its stable. Beez, Evan, The Intern (not BTI), and Tomlin were all great. You’re right about the current state of KSR. It’s rare that I make it to the end of a KSR post without feeling as if I’ve just watched the English language get gang banged.

    For the people (like Matt) that say UK football would win with Petrino, but he is not “nice enough to be around”. Have you watched how Cal rides the basketball players to make them so good? What are you trying to protect us from, not being the laughing stock of the SEC like joker has made us?

    Obviously, no one ever saw Lou Holtz pulling one of his Notre Dame players along the sideline by the face mask. Sean Woods did nothing wrong. Relax. Spend time out at any high school or mall with a bunch of kids there. Discipline is lacking all over.

    Sean Woods said himself kids today don’t know how to act, don’t respect UK, and don’t know HIM. After that tirade, I’m just glad that kids today don’t act like Sean Woods. Between him and Richie, the “Unforgettables” are becoming stained.

    Jones would be as much of a joke as the Joke was here. Any real coach will be like Mr. Smart and say they are not interested. Dykes is our best bet and could probably do a very good job here and he may stick around a while
