Things certainly haven’t been looking up for Kentucky recently. In fact, things have gotten downright ugly since Nerlens Noel suffered a catastrophic knee injury against Florida.  Ray Glier of the New York Times agrees and wrote an interesting piece on the current state of the Wildcats.

It’s Senior Day at Kentucky, meaning that we’ll be saying goodbye to both Julius Mays and Twany Beckham today.  Fink Densford of CoachCal.com wrote an excellent story on how Julius and Twany relished their roles despite the season not going to plan.

It’s no secret that Kentucky currently finds themselves on thin ice in terms of the NCAA Tournament.  Terrence Payne of NBC.com’s College Basketball Talk shares that sentiment, but he laid out what the Cats need to accomplish going forward in order to make the field of 68.

The game against Florida will tip-off in about two hours.  In case you’re looking for a game preview, Mark Long of the Associated Press gave his take on what to watch for today.

Fear not if written previews aren’t your thing, because ESPN.com’s Myron Medcalf gave his preview of today’s game in video form. During the 45-second clip, Medcalf hypothesizes that Kentucky will have to stop Florida’s perimeter shooters and force turnovers in order to come out victorious today.

    I love Ravi Moss on the pre-game show. He tells it like it is and doesn’t sugar coat anything. For the old guy that called and said he’s sick of all the negativity, he can stick a bouquet of flowers up his butt and watch this non-hustling bunch of underachievers attempt to play basketball. A few of them are a disgrace to UK BASKETBALL! And I’m not talking about Archie Goodwin. AT LEAST HE TRIES!

    Coach is right that it is on him when these guys don’t have or show fight, but it is on him to a much higher degree for not seeing during the recruiting process that several of the guys didn’t show fight then. I don’t understand how this can happen unless he was just totally blinded by the star ratings of these guys. Harrow might be the most fragile player I have seen in awhile, Poythress has terrible body language and always has that Duh look on his face, and it would be hard to believe that Goodwin played anymore under control in HS. It is also on coach that these misfits didn’t get coached up during the year but, in fact, actually got worse. How do you splain that coach?…same question for your assistants??.. What have you and the staff been doing during all these weekly practices? You picked em coach and you are suffering with them and BBN having to suffer even more. Please stay on course, lose the next 2 games and lets get the disaster behind us.

    3 – Especially Harrow, how did TLC not realize what type of player he was after a full year of practice.

    Mr. Chuck Hayes. Now there’s a Wildcat through and through who never once underachieved. He set the tone for his teams.
