It’s not that Kentucky Sports Radio hasn’t been great in its short history.  It’s just that today presents us with so much opportunity for radio gold that we’re confidently declaring that this Friday NCAA Tournament edition will blow the doors off of any show yet.  Matt is in the Lighting Capital of the World doing his CBS thing and is ready to take to the airwaves with 120 minutes of gloating, celebrating and looking to the future.  Make sure you check it out.

Today’s show topics:

* Kentucky’s big finish and win over Princeton

* The continued emergence of Darius Miller and Josh Harrellson

* That little Morehead – Louisville game you might have heard something about

* Kentucky’s next shot at Bob Huggins and his Mountaineers

The comments game also continues and your participation in the comments’ section gives you a chance to win some money. Each day, the two best comments will be selected by Matt and Drew the Intern and placed into a weekly drawing for $200, courtesy of Fan Outfitters.

    Pitino’s demise is quite a shame, actually. He brought credibility and excitement to UK when the basketball program needed it most. Unfortunately, his ego got in the way of rational thinking when he left finest coaching job in college athletics to coach the Celtics. When that didn’t work out he goes to Louisville trying to match what he did at Kentucky. When that didn’t happen, his self-esteem took a major plunge and he tried to compensate by dipping his wand into Sypher. Pitino is five years older than Calipari but looks more like he’s 20 years older. Too bad.

    Well, if Louisville could manage to lose to another mid-major in the first round next year, they are only a third(first round) loss away from being able to change their name to Vanderbilt!

    Little known story. Pitino called the selection committee chairman over the weekend before the brackets were announced. He could not get through, but was talking to the secretary and told her “I would like morehead during the tournament”, she misunderstood, gave the message to the committee and the rest is history.

    I loved the minutes that Eloy gave us too. He has improved by leaps and bounds in the last month, and we are now legitimately seven deep. How about Terrence Jones, Eloy and Josh Harrellson all on the court together for at least short stretches if we have trouble rebounding against WVU

    You are wrong, UL is not even the best team in Louisville, you forgot Bellarmine.
    Also, Georgetown has gone further in their tournament, so UL must be 5th best team in the state this year.

    You guys just ruined one of my favorite “wrasslers” of all time by comparing UL to Razor Ramon. Can’t it at least be Bob Backlund or something? 15 seconds of fame and then catch a big boot to the face and a jacknife by Diesel (Farried and Morehead St in this case).

    Knight was the right guy to take the shot, he needed it big time for his confidence as we continue on. Harrelson was huge the whole game, Darius turned to Disapperius down the stretch. GREAT no call on Faried by the refs. A chance for (some measure of) redemption against WVU.

    1st off…big time NOOOOOOO on handsome jimmy.

    2nd…the close game yesterday could be the best thing for us going forward. For a team that struggled to win close games, especially against teams that shouldn’t have been in the game, to walk away w/ a win is HUGE from a mental standpoint.

    Brandon isn’t going to go 1-8 from the field again and Lamb will pull the trigger from outside on Sat. Jones…well if Knight, Miller, Lamb, harrellson, and Liggins keep doing what they’re doing we won’t need Jones’ points, but he’ll HAVE TO get more than 2 boards.

    WVU is basically Alabama, long athletic, get’s into you on D, but can’t shoot. If we take care of the ball, we’ll get our points. We’re in the top 10 on offensive efficiency, we can score, they can’t. Got to defend and rebound and we’ll roll.

    Plus we’re undefeated in revenge games this year. Beat Vandy, Fla (x2), Ole Miss, Bama. We would have crushed Arkansas if they didn’t bow out of the SEC tourney. I Like that we’re playing a team that will make us hungry and focused and not another mid major that would make us look stupid if we lost.

    We know teams like WVU cause they are like most of the teams we see in the SEC. Specifically Alabama, Ole Miss, and MSU, and those teams have more depth than they do. They will look really familiar to us and we’ll take care of business.
