Turgeon on Polson, “Who’s that?”

Mark Turgeon began his post-game press conference by saying that his team entered that game fully expecting to win. What he didn’t expect? Jarrod Polson. Turgeon said that when Polson first checked into the game, he thought to himself, “Who’s that?”

When asked how much his staff/team game-planned for Jarrod Polson, Turgeon promptly replied, “Absolutely zero.” Turgeon had the utmost respect for what Polson did though, even though he didn’t expect it. “He was the difference. He was the whole key to the game. Kid gave them confidence. And he made the play of the game on the rebound… I don’t even know what year he is.”

Junior.

You didn’t see his YouTube videos?

    Cal said before the game that he is confident in Polson and would play him….. good thing because Harrow stunk it up tonight. Harrow better put on his big boy pants for Duke!

    Also Duke was at home and looked very average. So first game jitters is common. They’re guard play is really, really bad.

    RYNO you have to listen to the official IMG post game broadcasts on UKAthletics.com on the internet per contract with UK. IHeart has to black it out, but due to some technical glitch cannot completely mute it. WHAS840 should have it in Louisville. Matt’s post post game show will be available on IHeart like normal because it’s not official IMG.

    it always comes down to whitey. Why do my fellow UK fans hope for a white standout? Can’t he just be a good player, not a good “white” player?

    35 – I don’t know that it’s so much that Polson is white as that he’s a KY boy, born and bred. We love to see our own boys do well because we know how they grew up dreaming every day of doing exactly what Polson did tonight.

    Jared Polson got screwed out of POG. He and Kyle were the only 2 that played the complete game. WCS and Goodwin had a good first half and not much after….Harrow, Mays,Poythress underachieved the whole game and we were lucky to have just enough to pull it out. The postgame interview with coach is a disgrace with all the commercials.

    When year after year you see little boys pretending every day to hit the game winning shot for UK and know how much it means to them you can’t help but feel happy to see one of them actually live that dream. Most of the players on this team did not grow up dreaming of playing for UK and only UK their entire lives like Kentucky boys do. I felt the same way for Darius Miller and Ravi Moss and they weren’t white.

    The star of the game on radio was Archie Goodwin. How does Polson not at least share that honor tonight? Do they win without him?
