HALF: Kentucky 29 Alabama 20

stats-151541-105820

Well, at halftime, we’ve got kind of a mixed bag. Kentucky’s playing better defense, holding Bama to only 32% from the floor, but the Cats can’t get anything rolling on offense; a lot of that is due to Malik Monk being on the bench with two fouls for a good part of the first half. And no, he still doesn’t have a rebound, although he came really close one time.

Still, there’s been defense and hustle and the Cats are up by 9. That’s good.

    These officials are terrible. I know … same stuff different game but when they are letting Alabama get away with moving screens outside the 3 every single screen they set AND call Kentucky for running into them it is way over the line.

      I did finally see them call the dribble and stiff-arm shove on ‘Bama…that’s a nifty move if you can get away with it.

    I know Cal loves #13, but it looks like better options are riding the pine. JMO.

    Wow, you’re right, just checked the box score, he’s awesome!

    Because of Brisco they have added yards per carry to the box score.

    23 fouls against UK to 15 against Bama…..no home cooking there….Refs are horrible!

    That whole thing where Calipari is sitting Monk for not playing defense and not rebounding is working great. At least he’s taking lots of bad hero shots early in the shot clock though.

    Not saying Briscoe is awesome but he is rebounding which we need. And correct me if I’m wrong but he just made a big and 1 play to extend the lead.

      About Briscoe’s only problem today was free throws which is an anomoly this year.

      1 for 7 from the FT line doesn’t cut it…

    EdC your constant negative criticism is the one consistent thing about you. Are you a coach?

      Essentially you must think that Monk and Calipari didn’t say that right? Or you think Monk’s 1 rebound counts as reasonable rebounding? Or you think that the consistent ability for the other team to just leave him waving at the ball isnt’ happening? Who needs to be a coach to see that and understand it?

    I don’t think Monk could stay in front of my mother and she uses a walker.

    Is that #13 with a double double?

    Here’s kind of a positive comment. I enjoyed the video of sad John Pelphrey.

    They played with effort for most of the game. Its a good road win with a team climbing back into early season form.
