-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.
