Former Wildcats Celebrate Kentucky’s Win Over UCLA

We are all this guy (via @Finna_Go_Ham).

We are all this guy (via @Finna_Go_Ham).

Fresh off scoring 70, Devin Booker had some encouraging words for his team.

Now in L.A., Julius Randle was happy to see De’Aaron Fox end UCLA.

Well played A.D., well played.

From one point guard, to another.

Wall’s former running-mate was pleased with the performance as well.

Chuck Hayes did less celebrating, but during the game he provided high-qualify analysis.

Patrick Patterson did much of the same, with a lot more gloating.

    Everytime Ball got a basket, the commentators acted like he was unstoppable. Nantz,Hill,and Bill “A little kiss off the glass ” Rafferty needed to check their man Crush at the door.

      Yeah, Ball scorched the nets for 10 points…..some TV announcers need to get a new line of work.

      They bought in to the hype. He is a talented player, but proved he hasn’t been guarded by an athletic defensive player and that he didn’t know what to do on screens. Apparently, UCLA doesn’t coach their point guards on defense very well, or else his daddy was too busy selling shirts to help coach him

      You mean there was another team besides UCLA playing? I sure couldn’t tell by that blatant deplay of favoritism last night. And when I turned on the UF/Wisc game it was more of the same. SEC baby!!

      This kind of parental craziness starts early – when I coached U8 youth soccer (no goalie, no score kept, supposed to be all about fundamentals), I had to have conversations with two different sets of parents who insistend on coaching from the audience – i.e. shouting instructions to their kids during the games.

      With all four of my kids involved in sports at all levels, I’ve seen countless LaVar Balls…from youth soccer, middle school softball and high school football to AAU hoops, ASA/NSA softball and collegiate hoops. Heck, I’ve seen parents tossed from Little League games…*sigh*

    Perceptive comment by Hayes – he built his NBA career out of the kind of scrappy play he identified in Adebayo.
