Late Saturday Night Notes

-The Terrence Jones we saw at Big Blue Madness and earlier in the season somehow got lost in the swamps of Louisiana. He was found Saturday afternoon, a little famished, kind of shaken, but good enough to play in the game.  The impostor Terrence was fed to the LSU Tiger and will never be seen again. Welcome Back, Real TJ.

Kentucky destroyed LSU 74-50 behind the real Terrence’s 27 point, 8 rebound, 1 dime performance. It was a massacre of Alabamian proportions in Baton Rouge by the Wildcats, and it all started with a Malcolm White take down of Anthony Davis:

Something clicked inside Terrence Jones when he saw teammate Anthony Davis lying on his back in pain after a hard collision under the LSU basket.

“When stuff like that happens to one of your brothers, you don’t like that,” Jones said. “The only way we could redeem that is by continuing to play hard, just show it through the score.”

-If that’s what it takes to get Terrence to play hard I say we tackle Brian Long before every game.

-TJ even went on a 13-0 run of his own. He scored the last four points of the first half, then broke the game open by scoring the first nine of the second half. Two nasty dunks, a fastbreak layup, and an “and-one” to end the run.

-Anthony Davis is tough. Amid a 16 point, 10 rebound showing he was pummeled by the Tigers every time he touched the rock. Davis went a perfect six for six from the field and caught the attention of a prominent NBA journalist in the process:

No doubt NBA general manager were watching too as Davis continues to cement his spot at the top of June’s draft.

Here are your Cats around LSU’s campus before they went in the Pete Maravich Center to kick some ass:

Anthony Davis predicting his next team? Jay-Z is praying so.

-In other news former Cat, Daniel Orton, got some NBA run yesterday. Stan Van Gundy decided to put Orton in towards the end a blowout loss to the Hornets and Orton responded by scoring two points. Hopefully this leads to some more playing time for Danny. Congrats, bro.

-2012 WR recruit Monty Madaris decided to not visit Lexington this weekend, even though he had previously planned to. Hopefully Madaris eventually takes that hour trip from Cincy to Lex because the Cats could use his 1,137 yards and 16 touchdown output from the past season.

-John Wall’s Washington Wizards took on Kemba Walker’s Charlotte Bobcats tonight. Even though both teams suck, these two point guards are the future of the league and are exciting to watch. Wall’s Wizards came out on top 102-99 and Johnny had a nice stat line of 13 points, 10 dimes, and 3 boards.

That’s it for tonight guys. Hunter and I will be guiding you through your Sunday. I’ll be drunk by about 2:30 because my Bulls take on the Heat so you should see Mr. Campbell around then.

Sleep well, BBN.

    Kemba Walker may end up being a better NBA player than Wall. I cannot believe this guy didn’t get more credit by NBA scouts during his career. I guess it was his size but isn’t he about the same size as another pretty good player, Chris Paul. Wall has a long way to go before he is an elite NBA point guard. I know he doesn’t have much to work with but just as he was at UK he is a little out of control at times.He is really too quick for his own good. If he can settle down and play fast but don’t hurry then I’ll take the original comment back and Wall could eventually become one of the best ever.

    Classic TJ in the LHL: “Even though three of LSU’s players picked up two fouls each inside the first nine minutes, Kentucky somehow managed to get outscored 8-6 in the paint.” Cats win by 24 and he manages to find a way to put a negative spin on their play. What a douche.

He’s made over a million dollars already not even playing… He will get more and more minutes after he’s traded and will make it on a team, maybe after a stint in the D League. He’s got bad knees he had to take the money that was offered.

    Also…I’m tired of ESPN personalities saying they’re concerned by Teague. In the last two games, his assist to turnover ratio is 11:1. Now that’s a bit of an oddity and can’t be expected to continue. However, over the last four games, his A/TO ratio is 3:1. That’s impressive, and something that can continue. They are absolutely balling right now!

    The guy who clubbed Davis across the face was just as intentional, even though no foul was called. Davis already had the ball and was cramming it through the rim when the guy clobbered him. The LSU player made no real attempt at the ball but was looking right at Davis’ face as he clobbered him. After yesterday, Davis does not have to prove his toughness (emotional and physical) to anyone.

    “Dropping dimes,” eh. From “back in the day,” huh. I’ve been a UK fan since 1949 and I don’t recall hearing that term before. So, pardon me, along with Pete, for being out of the lingo loop. I could do with never hearing it again. It makes little sense. “Dropping a dime” might well be slang for contacting someone, evolving from using a dime to make a payphone call, but how does that relate to an assist? Anyway, Saturday’s game is what I hope we see much more of: a runaway romp in the park. We used to have a lot of those “back in the day,” and I never tire of them.

    42) The term has been around for years. You’re on the right track with the meaning being related to a phone call. ie. It originated from slang when someone makes a call (dropping a dime) to ASSIST the cops, by providing info. Later got used to describe an assist in basketball.

    #29, Orton may have banged the guy’s sister, but what most UK fans don’t like about Orton is that he boned the university, hard. He quit school as soon as the cats were knocked out of the tournament and didn’t leave on the best terms. The shoolastic record of the team matters to UK (and to the NCAA), and Orton pissed on the university and took all “F’s for the grading period. We don’t wish him ill, but who cares that he got his first minute and 2 points in the NBA. He’s not in the same leauge as the rest of that particular recruiting class as a player or as a person. The kid got a free ride from UK and the noteriety of playing on that team at UK. He showed nothing as a player at UK and was still drafted in the first round because of the publicity he got from playing on that team and his potential (which I never saw). Don’t you think the kid owed the university the effort of 6 more weeks of school?

    Here’s my gripe, and no it’s not about the team, the players, or Coach CAL. It’s about my fellow Big Blue fans. We’ve had weeks of people incessantly harping on Terrence Jones for not performing, while he was recovering from an injury to his dominant hand. Him and Darius are my favorite two guys on this team. The difference in this team from last years, where Terrence was more of a force, is that we have more superstar-esque type players. This year MKG, Davis, Lamb, Miller, Jones, Wiltjer, and even Teague have stood out as the best player for a game. The difference is when Jones has a double single stat line lately like 9 points 8 rebounds or 8 points 7 rebounds everyone is about to loose their minds when they are overlooking the fact that Darius exploded for 19 points and in the same game Davis had 17 rebounds. There’s so many people capable of ‘getting theirs’ on every given night that somebody/anybody can be on the opposite end due to lack of opportunity.

    Case in point: MKG last night. Dude had 1 point and 8 rebounds. Anybody feel like bashing the kid all Terrence Jones style?? Didn’t think so. MKG had a great defensive game shutting down there point guard. He didn’t need to score a ton or in this case, at all. Jones was amazing, Davis was impressively strong, Darius and Doron knocked down jumpers. Cudos to the team for getting it done. Period. Let’s give these guys full support without the bull$hit negativity that Terrence Jones has received over the past month.

    #41 – I saw that play too, the LSU player hammered Davis in the face, while pretending to try and block the shot by Davis. He even looked like he was smiling. I watched the replay in slow mo. It was totally intentional! I now hate LSU as much as I hate Tenn…and that’s quite a lot. And I like the idea of putting our boy Eloy in for a few HARD fowls.

    #38 – the reason Miller shoots so well from 3 point range is because he takes good shots. If he jacks it up every time he gets the ball, I doubt that he will have the same shooting percentage.

    #48 – I totally agree. I don’t wish Orton any ill will, but really could care less if he ever makes it in the NBA. I don’t even consider him to be a part of BBN any longer.

    54) Totally agree. I feel a couple of the writers on this blog fueled a lot of that negativity toward Jones and kept throwing gas on the fire. Last week, after some major backlash in many of the comments and being a point of discussion on one of the the radio shows, they seem to have backed off. I applaud that and hope they start giving more credit when it is due.

    I played D1 ball at a mid major school. We were taught by the coaches to take a guy out and make sure he is on his back. This was only if we were getting destroyed or felt like the other team was trying to show us up on our own court. don’t blame the kid for hammering Davis. He should have known it was coming.

    After that foul that White made on him (by the way that’s concidered a foul in pro football also) they put the camera on Cal. I’m not sure what TJ was going to do. But let me add if I saw a man the size of Terrence coming at me, the ball boys would have a LOT of cleaning up to do…. Pointblankperiod#. I was happy as everyone to witness the reemerging of the OLD Terrence we all knew him to be!

    From the Shreveport Times:

    Everything got quiet and ugly in the second half. Forward Malcolm White was called for a flagrant foul on Davis judged serious enough to get White ejected with 15:24 to play and Kentucky up 48-30 and on a 13-4 run out of the gate. Davis was coming off two jumpers within 37 seconds of one another and had just stolen the ball and was on his way up for an easy dunk. But White grabbed him from behind by both shoulders and pulled him down. In 7 minutes, White finished with zero points, one rebound and a tackle.

    #62 – I’m not disputing what you say you were told, but that mindset is total BS. I player like Davis has a lot at stake in this ‘game’. To risk an injury (which my cost him millions and millions of dollars) just because you are getting your ask kicked at home is pathetic. I would not want my son to play for a coach with that attitude. For most people this is merely a game. For some, it’s their means of employment. And what do you think Davis should have done because, ‘it was to be expected’? BS…BS. There is NO excuse to play like that!

If you dont like the fact that someone is kicking ur ass on the scoreboard or on ur home floor then do something about it like playing D and hitting shots not taking cheap shots.

    When Davis sustained that hard, deliberate, fragrant (as in stinking), flagrant foul, I thought, “Where is Allen Feldhaus when we need him!” When I attended UK, in the early 1960s, Coach Rupp would bring Allen, nicknamed “The Horse,” into a game when things got rough ‘n’ tumble and Allen would quickly show the opposition what muscle was all about. I am sure he had other talents, but a mighty cheer would go up when Allen came off the bench, because it usually meant Rupp was sending in the marines!
