The stat of the game? Turnovers

archie-georgia

The picture above pretty much sums it up. The defining stat in Kentucky’s 73-60 loss in Fayetteville? Arkansas outscored Kentucky 30-2 on turnovers. The Cats committed 19 turnovers to Arkansas’ 7.

Remarks from Cal and the players on the way.

    And if you watched the game you’d know that the fouls lead to a lot of those turnovers

    Not a direct comment to TT, just a generality

    The Bobcats out rebounded Enis 24-22 last night. Yes, he almost out rebounded their entire team!!

    You can’t blame the whole game on the officiating but those refs were awful! F*** Doug Shows.

    Correction: the stat of the game was rebounding, particularly offensive rebounding. Arkansas shot under 35% for the game. We shot 46%. 18 turnovers, while high, doesn’t cause that discrepancy. Allowing 19 offensive boards does.

    We’re in trouble when we depend on Polson as our 6th or 7th guy…Face it…this team is not very good.

    @5 no offense but being outscored 30-2 off of turnovers is a huge discrepancy and much more than rebounding

    Someone please post Dan Bonners email. For a failed WOMEN’S basketball coach 22-20 all time, he was awfully critical of our Cats all day long! I’m not saying they didn’t deserve some criticism, but jesus, that’s all he did the whole game! And laughing about the “Archie sucks” chant was pathetic. God I hope they get to play them in the SEC tourney. It won’t be pretty

    They took our lunch money today. Simple. We don’t have anyone strong enough to sack up against a team that aggressive.

    #7. If we didn’t turn the ball over once they still would have had 8 more shots. 18 TOs isn’t crazy. We turned the ball over 12 times against Miss St. The reason they scored all those points was b/c they got 2nd and 3rd looks. THAT’S why rebounding is the key stat. Guarantee that’s what Cal emphasizes.

    And their crowd was great. If Lexington had a 5star player that left to play elsewhere, Rupp would be merciless upon his return. Don’t act like that was classless or mean or whatever… We would have reveled in it if things were reversed

    Welcome back AP…your body language and overall court demeanor returned us to too many disappointing games in the past. Hopefully, this will be your last year wearing blue. How can you only take 3 shots?? You commited more fouls than shots attempted. Wusstjer you continue to be a disappointment and have now had 3 ugly games. Uncle, for being the designated leader how can you shoot 1-8. Why is it that you guys have not been able to all get on the same page and play to best of your ability for at least one game for the whole year. Polson was the only man we had on the court. These Cats have blown so many weekends for us this year but look how happy they have made all of the UK haters out there.

    They had 11 steals…steals turn into layups and dunks. Quit making excuses; they took the ball from us repeatedly. Off the glass or out of our pockets. Game.

    15) god shut up already Louisville troll- Scotty Hopson was a 5* guy who chose UT of all places, and I never heard a peep out of the fans at Rupp

    Any true basketball person understands Polson is an average at best NAIA type player. Good person, but not talented enough for D1. Nor is Jon Hood. If Hood and Polson are getting any time on the court next season then you’ll know that team will end like this year’s. Next year UK will be stacked though.

    So please KSR, don’t insult knowledgeable hoop fans by saying Polson or Hood can help. They just don’t have the capabilities to do such.

    16) polson? Lmao!!! He was horrible. He got abused on offense and defense. He played way to many minutes. He looked scared to death!

    18) no troll here. I’ll change my comment…I personally would have LOVED it if the situation were reversed. Much the same way that I enjoy our crowd when they ride a Joakim Noah or similarly hated opponent. Oh yeah, quit bitching…Archie knew what he was signing up for.

    I find it hilarious at how many trolls show up onto a kentucky website. Care about your own team. I don’t see any Kentucky fans going over to Louisville websites and talking s***. I can’t wait to play Louisville next year. Plus Louisville is going to get a beat down by Notre Dame next Saturday! Go Cats!



  31. Hey
    6:50 pm March 2, 2013 Permalink

    UL TROLLS. What if UL fails to win it all this year? It is going to be just as fun watching UL not win it again this year as it will be winning another title next year at UK.

    Mike- they had it together when they spanked that ass in the Final 4 on the way to winning the championship last yr though! Until you deliver a KO punch like that against us, all your hatred is just empty noise. L2C8 bitch!

    Man, UK has 4 or 5 future pros and you still suck without Noel. Basically, Cal needs 6 nba players in order to win. He sucks as a coach without being able to overwhelm the other team with talent. Good news for uk fans is he is buying 6 or 7 pros for next year.

    33) your coach is a has-been since leaving UK. Way to grasp as some sense of relevance today, but we all know when it comes to the big game(like last years final 4), he’ll shoot his wad faster than in Porcinis.

    It’s ok to admit that this team isn’t very good, but it is another thing to berate a kid and sling mud. Mike (#16), you’re a dumb, piece of shit, mouth breathing, ass hole. You are not a fan. These are kids, attempting to play a game for their school and entertain you in the process. Please go screw yourself because you make genuine fans look bad.

    40) uh maybe your an idiot. 1-5 sound familiar? Uh maybe you should stfu and go over “there” and go back to stroking the egos of the losers on “there”. One thing over “there” “their” not worried about, is winning a championship. Something us over “here” did less than 12 months ago-

    38. BACO5…take a munch of my swinging lunch. If you want to make excuses for this team and their pathetic play you are welcome to it. They deserve to be berated because that is their level of play. Are you seeing something else? For a preseason #3 rated team and with only week in the Top 25 all year they are getting what they deserve.
