    I see an ugly game today. 2 defensive teams battling. But if we play like the other night, blowout.

    Pratt on the radio: “Guards. Forwards. Center. Those are the important positions for UK.” Pratt is thorough.

    The bama player was fouled by his own teammate and not gilchrist. Don’t see that too often.

    Guys, knowing the power of the BIG BLUE NATION on voting polls, I thought that I would try this. My army buddy that I served with overseas has a daughter. I am her godfather. They live in Worcester, Massachusetts. She is trying for some spot on a TV program there. I would appreciate anyone who would take the time to vote for her. Her name is Kayla Daly. You can just copy the link and place your vote. Thanks in advance for anyone who would take the time to do this. GO BIG BLUE.http://www.facebook.com/questions/174199872680703/

    Thanks to everyone who has voted so far. She is now in second place.

    They need to calm down and let their game take over.

    Jones…shoot the damn thing..ur passing no good. Looks like AD intimidated on offense. Alabama certainly has the beef and great D.

    MKG had to sit with two fouls early. He’ll come back loaded for bear, or Bama, as the case may be.

    playing tough just need some whistles going our way

    MKG is gonna wake up in 2nd half and go on a tear. AD needs to be more aggressive on offense. Teague needs to drive and pass to open guys and open this thing up!

    Bama little better than I thought. They are going to be a tough out at their place. Didn’t realize they had that much bulk inside…certainly giving Davis and Jones fits. We have only 2 players, again, playing well and let’s hope they get it together and stay out of foul trouble as well. Looks there are some sprints coming as believe we were 4-11 in FT%.

    how can our team as talented as they are, always allow the other team to control the pace of the game? steal and slam by davis!!!

    Jones and Miller have 4 boards between…hope Davis isn’t setting himself up to go from career high to career low.

    Releford is killing us…Lacey wouldn’t look too bad in blue.

    Jones….MG, can u miss anymore at the rim??

    Just go zone and that will end Releford’s run and put this game away!

    They’re gaining more confidence in the end game, that’s a good sign.
    Bama is tough and came to play, Cats gutted it out.
    I’m starting to like winning ugly.

    Teague refusing to play defense today.

    Amen Tonydelk. But hey, I said before the game on this blog, it was gonna be sloppy. A win is a win.

    Speaking of the end game, UK goes 8/8 at the line to seal it…that’s money at NCAA time.

    Before every starts complaining about how bad we played, lets give Alabama credit. They played out of their…. They hit everything and executed well. They have a load of talent on that team and could definitely make the sweet 16. Tough game and you need those to grind through the NCAA tourney.

    Phewwwwwww!!!…will take a little LUCKY over good anyday. When they went 7-7 to start 2nd half thought that might cost us the game there. Their D better than ours this game and we only outscored them by 1 2nd half. They shot 48% to our 43%, outboarded us by 4, shot 72% on 3’s vs. our 64%, and outshot us at FT line 72% to 64%…that win does feel awful good though….talk about cardiac kids.

    Cats had only 8 turnovers for the game…Teague did fine.
    They won this one as a *team*, what’s to complain about?

    Why hasn’t Vargas been playing lately? Is he injured?



  34. Mike

    Teague wasn’t bad today but did get outplayed by Lacey. Lacey had 3 less mins. more boards, more assists, and less t/o’s.

    I am convinced that Jones cannot play against big fisical players., He tries to dribble through double teams and cannot junp against them. He only shoots 50 percent from the free throw line as well. Yes he does eat up shorter players. He will not be a big star in the NBA.

    33 Vargas cannot play with the bigs Alabama has. Period.

    Alabama’s game plan was to play very physically and try to slow the game down. But Kentucky superior players won out in the end.

    Well Drew, I want to start by saying, I’m disappointed in myself. I’m out here in Vegas, and the cats just played. Good win btw. But before the game I said “wwdfd”? So I bet the Cats for the first time in years. I bet more than the pennies you like to bet. I lost. Cats won. We all almost won. Booooooooze #nc
