Kentucky gets back on track, beats LSU 75-70

My nerves are completely shot, but we got the win.

Following a bad loss to Alabama, Kentucky needed a win over LSU to feel good about itself again. Behind a combined 35 points from Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress, Kentucky defeats the Tigers 75-70. Nerlens Noel had another huge game as well. With a stat line of 10 points, 8 rebounds, 6 blocks and 2 assists, he continues to be the best player on the floor for the Wildcats.

We’ll have more in a few.

    Too close for comfort down the stretch. Thought a blowout was coming 10-15 minutes in!

    Poythress had 20 points, 12 rebounds, and most importantly only ONE TURNOVER! Thank god he decided to turn it on for today’s game.

    I believe that this is going to finally get it together but I’m afraid it’s going to be too late by the time they do. They should tear through the NIT, though. 🙁

    LSU’s Caramouche had as many assists (7) as our entire team total.

    Despite our win today there’s very little hope moving forward in this season. If we do manage to squeak into the tournament we’ll be bounced first round.

    When the dribble drive offense works well, you don’t collect a lot of assists. That’s just a side affect of driving to the hoop to score. LSU let UK have a lot of drives down the lane today so there was not as much need to pass the ball off to open shooters.

    That flagrant foul they called was terrible. 4 point swing and gave LSU all the momentum. Is it just me, or do college basketball refs alter outcomes of games a lot more than in the past?

    #23 I agree. You wonder if they have a monetary interest in these games. Not a bad win, LSU played as well as they are going to play. We are still playing without WCS, would have helped with the defense today.

    I think if we ever give this team a nickname it will be THE MORSE CODE team. We are experts at telegraphing passes.
    GO CATS!!

We have had some really good times u stupid spoiled brats! Oh, And anyone see the old dude wearing orange?

    That was a terrible “team” performance…geez they looked bad. Team has no shot to advance in the NCAA tournament, that’s if they’re lucky enough to get an invite. You can’t go out there, perform like that against a lousy LSU squad this late in the season…on your home floor, and expect to be dangerous come tournament time. I would say a birth in the NIT, where they would get some valuable tournament game experience, would benefit this team more than a one and done game in the NCAA, but heck, only a few players from this team would benefit, considering the expected mass exodus of freshmen after this season. Not to mention losing Mays, the lone senior.

    Flagrant foul the worst by church league officials , turned game, at least 7 point, I was pleased to see them hang on

    I remember them good ole days when every UK win was a “feel good” win..no longer. I also remember when it used to be entertaining and fun to listen to Cal’s postgame shows..no longer.

    Come on guys a win is a win. Negativity has not produced a better result, so let’s try some positivity for a while; at least they look like they are having a little fun now anyway. So all the negativity needs to stop and just enjoy this team for what they are, a group of freshmen, give them a break. Go back to disrespecting Louisville, they are losing to and they are not our team!

    Announcers kept saying elbow to the head was cause of flagrant foul. I DVR’d the game as well as watched all the replays when it happened. Mays’ elbow never hit the LSU player. It was his bicep. That’s proof that the defender was totally violating the space of the offensive guy. LSU player would have to back up about 6 inches so that Mays’ elbow could have hit him.

    SEC officials suck!!!

    36 – A “birth” in the NIT would be very interesting scientifically for a men’s basketball team. In fact it would be a first of historic proportions.

    Hope the officials are having their usual bad day, but more bad calls go in UK’s favor than the other team.

    Some of u guys sound like the biggest crybabies ever. And after a win! #39 really? We just won the NCAA Title less than a year ago and u make it sound like 50 years ago. It’s a down year with a young team. Put on your big girl pants and deal with it sad sack!

    No comments on Harrow getting punched in the nuts in this picture?



  52. Archie Goodwin is a cancer
    7:11 pm January 26, 2013 Permalink

    Goodwin almost cost us the game….again. Why does he have such a green light? On the season so far, he has taken 20% of this teams shots and responsible for 25% of the turnovers. He’s taken 214 shots, that’s 45 more than Wiltjer, who’s taken the 2nd most at 169. Aarghchie is averaging 11.2 SHOTS per game, and only 14.6 ppg. That is PATHETIC, not to mention a whopping 29% from 3. Allen Iverson, anyone??I know we don’t really have a great scorer, but it SURE ain’t number 10. We’ve heard all year how Cal is working one on one with WCS, with Alex, with Harrow…who’s working with Goodwin?

    How the high and haughty have fallen. Our Cats eke out a win over an SEC also-ran with the BEST talent in the freshman class nationally, and we’re singing it’s praises ?!

    Next thing you know we’ll be ya-hooing our star football recruits !

    That was “back on track?” Squeaking out a win at home that you’re favored by 17? Tuesday night is a certain loss. Four certain loses coming and probably 2 more lost on the road. I’ll be optimistic and say 20-11.

    Goodwin did a lot better today. It is a shame that some of you crybabies call yourself UK fans. Most of you just don’t deserve to be UK fans. Go pull for Clemson or UL and see how happy you would be. Sad sorry fair weather folks on this site make it no fun for me any more. I really need to stop reading the comments.

    55 – I agree with you completely. I really doubt a lot of these people making comments are really KY fans. I think many are trolls posing as KY fans. The comments they are making aren’t even funny. You used to be able to count on some pretty humorous comments, but not lately. It’s just a bunch of people complaining and being hateful to the team and each other. I think the trolls have been successful in driving off many of the best comment makers.
