Duke’s three superstar freshmen almost outscored UK by themselves

Kentucky didn’t come close to beating Duke. It did, however, manage to beat Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish in the scoring column.

Duke’s three star freshmen combined for 83 points in the game, one point shy of Kentucky’s 84 on the scoreboard. Two free throws from Immanuel Quickley in the final minute of the game gave the Cats the edge in the end.

Kentucky: 84 points

RJ Barrett: 33 points
Zion Williamson: 28 points
Cam Reddish: 22 points

How embarrassing would it have been if those three outscored Kentucky’s whole team? Although, I guess it wouldn’t have been any more embarrassing than what actually happened in the game.

Turns out those three superstars can play together after all.

      On to next year. This group has ZERO shot at a title, and that should be what we play for. But Cal is fine with it, he has till June to try to get 4 or 5 more guys to the NBA whether they are ready or not.

      We needed 1 of Knox, Gabriel, or Vanderbilt to return 6-8 or 6-9 guys reddish had Herro by at least 4 inches but I’ll blame that on Cal as well not getting guys to return we had 3 guys who definitely should have returned diallo, jv, wenyen & another 1 transfer skj

      He should have whipped them and drug them back! Why doesn’t he tell grown men of no relation what they can and can’t do?! You folks stayed up to make these comments? You could have at least thought them through.

    Yea we all know what happened and it was stunning . I was just laughing through 3/4 of the game . I found myself wanting to see how big of a lead Duke could get …

    Coach K is a real coach. Go back and watch the introductions… UK laughing, Duke was intense and focused, looked like they were ready to fight. Duke was fluid, polished, and played exceptional team ball. UK was none of that.
    Duke played positionless basketball, UK continues to play 1 on 1 drive ball to basket. Modern style with true elite athletes vs 20years ago style with bunch of decent athletes. This game was over before it began

    Cal needs to coach for KENTUCKY instead of worrying about the NBA.

      When it comes to Xs and Os Cal isn’t the best. You can say anything you want. But that’s facts. All we know is dribble handle offs and drive. If you can’t get a shot off. Kick it out to the perimeter. Cal got out coached AGAIN! Cal couldn’t stop or adjust. We should’ve known it was going to be a long day when Zion is hit a 3ball.

    There was s time he could coach. His UMass days he didn’t have all the talent in the world. It seems like he’s just riding this out anymore until Brad graduates so he can retire. Just dosent seem to care if he wins or loses anymore.
