Kentucky wins the least exciting game of the year, 90-38

If you asked me to rank all of Kentucky’s basketball games this season, tonight’s contest against Eastern Michigan would fall somewhere near or beneath the bottom. And I say that with the upmost respect for the Eastern Michigan whatever-they-ares basketball program.  The home school from the Michigan town that gave us Domino’s pizza entered Rupp Arena in a rare, non-conference, 6:00 p.m. weekday game in January and they’re leaving with a beatdown at the hands of your University of Kentucky Wildcats.  Kentucky won this one convincingly, 90-38, in the “rebound game” after the loss to Louisville.

Alex Poythress returned to the starting lineup in place of Julius Mays, who came off the bench for the first time since the season opener.  A headband-less Willie Cauley-Stein made his second career start for the Cats.  Nerlens Noel threw a full court shot attempt over the goal and into the fifth row.  Ryan Harrow finally committed a turnover.  Michael Kidd-Gilchrist sat courtside with Brad Calipari.  Josh Hutcherson was in attendance, too.   Kyle Wiltjer was the leading scorer with 17 points.

We’ll have more, including a thorough recap from Mrs. Tyler, throughout the evening.  Until then, Go Gators.

    I’m taking bets on who’s the first writer that has an article claiming that the team is on the upswing by using stats of this game. Haha.

    Couple of impressions…

    Cauley Stein’s agility and Harrow’s quick hands are impressing me more and more. Noel goes 100% no matter the opponent and yes, we are improving.

    I feel positive heading into SEC play. Nice job Coach.

    How bad is Purdue if they lost to this team?

    10, runner I completely agree. I look at this as a scrimmage-practice type of game and look for positives. Also, we played 40 min for the first time I beleive.

    I would like to tell UK freshmen what a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit he is! Hallelujah!

    #14, Purdue is bad enough to beat 13-1 Illinois last night.

    And To say this is the least exciting game of the season is embarrassing, Kentucky completely owned this team, from start to finish and had Cal not given loads of minutes there would have been records broken on low scoring from EMU.

    UK Domination does not equal boring in my book

    It was really quiet during the game last night. As the camera did shots of the fans most are texting or playing games on their phones. What is it about all these idiots playing on phones all the time. We go watch the Cats to support them and raise a little hell.All these people on phones are as bad as the woman who sleeps during games. How rude can people be. Just saying there are fans who would love to have the tickets the phone junkies and sleepers have. Rupps roof should almost come off every game from the noise instead it is quiet.
