Briscoe called Florida players “soft” early in the game


Talking trash is all good until you get your ass beat.

Isaiah Briscoe might’ve learned that the hard way down in Florida, if Devon Robinson’s postgame accusations are indeed true.

Robinson said Briscoe was calling the Gators “soft” early in the game, which only inspired them to play harder, in order to prove themselves to Briscoe, the eighth-ranked Wildcats, and the nation. The “soft” Robinson went on to score 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting with a game-high nine rebounds for a near-double-double.

Meanwhile, Briscoe had six points on 3-of-10 shooting with three rebounds and four turnovers.

Maybe his early game comments were a little off base.

    Wish he and the team would learn how to TALK on defense

    hahaha. Briscoe is my least liked player maybe ever at UK. He is the biggest cry baby little whiner. Please stop shooting. Cal no matter what will not bench him

      I hated the Harrison twins with a passion. Constant pouters, undeserved play time. Briscoe’s performance doesn’t warrant his play time, but he rebounds and hustles. Bam is the sofest big I have seen at UK in a long time.

      Agree on Bam! Good hands but not tough with the ball. Gets it knocked away too easily.

      Briscoe and his legs tarts need to be down at the end of the bench. The guy is a walking turnover. He’s a liability at this point. Until he remembers how to play…he needs to sit. Monk needs to be down there next to him on his “off nights.”

    Honestly a toss up between him and Ryan harrow for my least liked guard under calipari

    How is anybody on this team cocky and mouthy in the face of any other team at this point. Mind boggling.

    We are team Briscoe, accept it–when he does well we win–when he plays like the last 4 games we suck

      Briscoe NEVER plays well against good competition which does not bode well for the tournament.

    I personally like Briscoe. But he was definitely off today.

    I like Briscoe, but Fox has to take control of this team.

    Briscoe is the only player on our team that fights every play. He has to guard the other teams best, and hes in the middle getting rebounds. Its not his fault Calipari has played him out of position for 2 years, so when hes asked to play PG he struggles.

      THIS, is the most intelligent statement I’ve seen on KSR in some time. He’s the ONLY guy on this team that fights for every rebound. He makes mistakes every now and then, but you know he’s going to fight for you.

      Exactly. The Briscoe hate in KSR comments is absolutely ridiculous.

      How many 5 star PGs would play out of position 2 years and never complain? You know how much more efficient his game would be if he wasn’t being guarded by a small forward every game?

      He’s also our best rebounder pound for pound. And improved his shooting drastically.

      In my opinion, people give a hard time for Monk taking bad shots, but it seems that Briscoe drives the lane without regard of what the defense is doing. He gets down to the block and either throws the ball away, or panics and has an ugly turnover on a consistent basis. That couples with him not being able to shoot from the outside. The reason we need him, is on the other end of the floor. Reminds me of the ole college football video games, the announcers would say when a defensive player dropped an sure interception, “That’s why he is on defense, and not playing offense.” Problem is, basketball you play both.

      I love his toughness, but when we need a bucket, I would rather see Monk and Fox with the ball under any circumstance. Unfortunately , we have a bunch of 1 way players.

      I agree about KSR, especially Drew, his contributions have become unreadable for me. Not sure what his qualifications were to get his job.

      Drew is the best writer on KSR. He tells it like it is and doesnt lie just to get clicks

      What game are you guys watching? The cat’s on ball defense is horrendous. Briscoe kills offensive possessions. He’s a liability despite being a rebounder. His minutes to to be dramatically reduced until he can contribute more than pulling in a rebound against lesser competition. It’s that simple.

      Also, for those who think briscoes lack of production is somehow Cals fault for not allowing him to run the point….have you seen him play? It’s not coach Cals fault the guy can’t perform at the position.

    I’m not going to hate on the kid. He’s had some good games, but something has been off lately. He’s forcing too much for some reason. The only thing I can think of is he’s, for some reason, dead set on going pro. What NBA team could he possibly help? I wish he’d embrace his ability to be a good college player and then let the NBA things come later. Right now he’s making it so his career is gonna be overseas.

    Look, whether Briscoe is good or bad is that how UK should be represented? Remember a few games back when there was a fight and Cal implied his kids wouldn’t start such a thing? Something like I know my guys.

    Anybody here think that Briscoe doesn’t stir the pot and incite ire in the other team?

    Cal needs to get a little control of this team. Noticed it for weeks. Briscoe won’t shit the f up. If they call a foul he runs his mouth and flails his arms. If Cal is telling him something his mouth is yapping the whole time or he just keeps walking and doesn’t even listen. This goes for Monk as well to a slightly lesser degree.

    Briscoe should focus on being a decent college player. He’s definitely not one who should be trash talking and should begin focusing even harder on college classes because he does not look to be NBA material let alone worthy of wearing Kentucky across his chest.
