Kentucky rolls past South Carolina, 77-55

Now that’s how games are supposed to be won in Rupp Arena.  The outcome of tonight’s contest against Frank Martin and the Gamecocks was never in question, as the Cats cruised past South Carolina, 77-55.

Julius Mays led the team in scoring for the second consecutive game with 15 points, while four other Wildcats joined him in double-figures.  Nerlens Noel posted a double-double with 10 and 10 and Willie Cauley-Stein scored 13 points off the bench with his grandparents in attendance.

We’ll have more in a bit.

Go Cats.

    Watching paint dry may have actually been more interesting.

    That is what is suppose to happen when we play USC. Now lets do the same to Auburn and get ready for the big games.

    A win is a win. Better passing makes for a better offense.

    Well, this OSU/UM game is pretty good. Two ranked teams in OT, after all.

    #5-good advice on trolls, but some of those pitiful people answer their own comments just to keep their “conversations” alive. How sad is that? Meanwhile, big, bigger, biggest day for UK BB & FB. UF losing was icing on the cake and sets the stage for the SEC showdown. Go Cats!

    @12 Haha your right about the trolls. I think lex and rae are the same person. It must be tough when you have no life. I am so pumped up about football and the basketball cats keep rollin. The florida game just got a whole lot more interesting.

    Cats building confidence and the sky is the limit for this team. They just need to trust each other and play together, then they will be able to beat anyone, anywhere.

    15. I’m not. I just don’t get ESPNU so I had to follow the live blog and the sweet soothing sounds of Tom Leach.

    And it was a good game once the UK game was over. Not the game of the year, probably, but fun. If UK can’t win the title, Michigan winning it would have no bearing on the race to beat UCLA.

    Lineup halfway through conf play

    Was out and missed the first half… and could barely watch the second half. Some of the uglies bball I’ve ever seen a KY team play – against a team they should have crushed for 40 minutes. Balls slapped out of their hands on just about every rebound… Numerous offensive rebounds given up.. Poythress misses numerous blank layup / dunks.. No flow on offense as Harrow and Polson look completely overmatched… Archie and Nerlens continue to miss freethrows – badly… Wiltjer borderline useless (except for a rebound or two)…

    Willie and Nerlens looked good though.

    Another stat we won was turnover – we had 17 to their 7. Yes, we shot fairly well but it was an ugly game to watch

    Matt, 2 things from last nights game:

    1) you said the “twin towers” do not work and would not work. Well, it worked pretty good last night. I would say that there are going to be match ups that may work well for us. I was impressed with WCS, he played good on both ends, dove for loose balls and really hustled.

    2) if Archie Goodwin is not a ball hog, then he continues to make bad decisions when driving to the basket. He continues to miss the open man and he can not hit his free throws. this will come back to bite us in the tournament.

    Enjoy the show.
