Bowers says Auburn has better guards, predicts win over UK

Cinmeon Bowers must not watch a lot of Kentucky basketball if he truly believes what he told reporters down in Auburn today.

The Tigers’ senior forward said, “I believe our guards are better than their guards.”

We’ll have to agree to disagree on that one, Cinmeon. Although Auburn does have a solid backcourt.

Bowers, who ranks fourth in the SEC in rebounding, went even further to say he believes Auburn can beat Kentucky.

“We confident about Kentucky now,” he said. “This ain’t like last year. This isn’t the same Kentucky. They’re beatable. If we play with energy, play smart and finish on the offensive end, then we can beat this Kentucky. We know that.”

Now that I will agree with. The good version of Kentucky will need to show up if it plans to escape Auburn with a win. Shy away and the outcome may be a favorable one for Bruce Pearl’s Tigers.

I really believe that we’re going to beat them,” Bowers continued. “We’re really ready.”

The Cats are in for a fight down in Auburn tomorrow evening.

    This one is gonna be up to AP. We need the superstar AP to show up all game and Lee to stay out of foul trouble. Guard play will likely wash out or be minimal advantage to UK. Pearl’s teams always play with energy and fight for everything. UK better come prepared and not let their foot off the gas if they get ahead. Pearl’s teams fight to the very end no matter the score.

    I wouldn’t want him on my team if he didn’t think they were going to win.

    I agree with everything he said, they are beatable this year and its tough to win on the road in the SEc, especially young Cal teams. I don’t agree he should have said it though. He should have just been complimentary about the UK team and left it at that. Behind the scenes be rallying the team to go out knock UK out. Then come out and hope to catch UK off guard with how on fire they are about getting the W.

    Now this will get back to the UK team and gives them time to make sure they are focused, the element of surprise is gone. Bad move, hopefully this fires the guys up for tomorrow’s game.

    Landon Young earns fifth star

    After an impressive week at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio last week, Lexington (Ky.) Lafayette offensive tackle and Kentucky commit Landon Young has been awarded a fifth star by 247Sports.

    Young (6-7, 270), who was named the top offensive line prospect in attendance and 247Sports Director of Scouting, Barton Simmons, called the ‘complete package’ for an offensive tackle prospect, jumped 90 spots from No. 102 overall to 12th nationally.

    He is the highest-ranked commitment of the Mark Stoops Era at Kentucky and tied for the second-highest ranked prospect to commit to the Wildcats since 2000 according to the 247Sports All-Time Recruits feature.

    He is only the fourth 5-star to commit to Kentucky since 2000, joining Antonio Hall (2000), Micah Johnson (2006) and Matt Elam (2014).

    A First Team All-State Selection by The Courier-Journal, Young helped the Generals to a 12-3 record and a berth in the Class 6A state title game, a 41-14 loss to Louisville Male.

    Young, who has been committed to Kentucky since June of 2013, chose the Wildcats over scholarship offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, Auburn, Miami and South Carolina among others.

    Surely UK won’t lose to a team 1-3 in the SEC and 7-8 overall. If we do we shouldn’t be ranked.

    I don’t think Auburn’s guards are better. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see us lose. We just aren’t very good right now.

    Was a Virginia clown or a Cinci clown that made those predictions shortly before playing the Cats last year?
