Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

UPDATE: After the win, someone from the Kentucky bench reportedly called out the scorekeeper for Tyrese Maxey foul controversy

Remember that one moment late in the second half where the referees decided to foul Tyrese Maxey out of the game with four fouls? And then someone from the Kentucky bench – who is busy coaching, mind you – had to do the referee’s job for him and tell the scoring table he had just four fouls? And they spent an hour and a half reviewing what we all knew already?

UK assistant coach John Robic thought the sequence was just as ridiculous as the rest of us.

According to Kyle Tucker of The Athletic, Robic leaned over the table after the game and “called him a cheater” as the teams shook hands.

In a follow-up tweet, Tucker added that the scorekeeper screamed back at Robic, to which the Kentucky assistant responded…

Well, you can read the tweet.

JOHN ROBIC FROM THE TOP ROPE!

——UPDATE——–

Robic has since told Tucker that he was not the one who screamed at the official scorekeeper and that it likely came from someone else in the handshake line.

Any guesses on who it might have been?

(I’m still telling my future grandkids it was Robic)

    By that logic, why coach at all?

    I don’t believe Tucker for a second! He’s a drama loving tool that has his fellow writers gang up on kids on Twitter when they call him out for bogus tweets.

      Please explain. I haven’t heard this.

    I bet it was Maxey or Tony Barbre.

    That’s what happens when you give out free beer.

    The whole thing is just comical. What kind of coach sells a January game against a current 4 seed as all important and offers beer to students who show up?

      So you think Tech’s coach was smart to convince his players and fans that this game was all important? Please tell me how that makes any sense at all. That is IU fan type logic.

      When THE biggest team in sports comes to your arena is it more than “all important.” It is the defining moment in your team’s history.

      So lexattorny, the way I see it is that instead of just letting it be a January game going into the game, he made it super important and they lost. So now they have to question everything vs. it was just a January game against a non-conference opponent. Real teams that expect to be good just don’t usually take that approach. No way does Cal ever sell any non-tournament 1 and out game as that important.

      Sorry lex … bad wording on my part. In a tournament where 1 and out is real Cal and any good coach makes that real. Any good coach who expects good things from their team just doesn’t make a January non-conference game super important.

      Sorry dummy … I insulted Tech fans not UK fans. Please go find anywhere that I have made any kind of positive comment about UL.

      Here’s a hint since I don’t think you are probably smart enough to figure much of anything out. Go look at the comments section of the Live Blog to figure out what team I am for.

    I’m puzzled that the officials corrected it since the home book is the official book.
