HALF: Kentucky 31 Southern Illinois 28

I’d like to tell you that Kentucky sprinted out of the gate and is crushing Southern Illinois, but that is not the case. In fact, it took the Cats almost 15 minutes to take the lead over the Salukis, their first lead of the season. Kentucky leads at half 31-28. 

Once again, Kentucky looks completely out of sorts, turning the ball over 14 times and letting Southern Illinois practically score at will. Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickely have seven points apiece, while Nick Richards has six points and a whopping 12 rebounds so far. Still, the Cats look bad and if you hoped for an easy, comforting bounce-back performance, you probably had this reaction when you turned on the TV:

Box score if you dare…

      I said it last game, our most effective lineup is the starting lineup we had in the Bahamas, once coach Cal went to the that lineup tonight we started getting our team rolling much better….

      Quickly
      Green
      Johnson
      Pj
      Nick

      We get spacing with shooters & pj & Nick our most athletic bigs we got. I think we got a chance to get back to the way we looked over the summer if Cal sticks with lineup.

    Hate to sound this way and ummmm not sure what happened but we suck! I find it hard to believe that we’ve regressed this much so must assume that the teams we played in the Bahamas weren’t as good as everyone thought. I realize that it’s super early in the season but coming off an embarrassing loss to a major rival…..playing a small school at home….you should be making a statement and blowing them out of the gym 40 minutes of hell style. I’m sure we’ll get it together at some point this season but once again as of now…..WE SUCK ?

    Better when quickly is in. Haggins should have stayed in high school he is not ready to compete at college level. The Mega Bemax team in the Bahamas was actually a good team beat Michigan after we beat them. Something has happened to this team since that trip. They either didn’t bond like Cal hoped and don’t get along or something. PJ beads to quit pouting and start playing like he is able to. We all know he is better than what he is playing.

      I agree @shively, we are much better with running the team, I hate to say this but Hagan’s is way behind, looks super sloppy smh a turnover machine waiting to happen….

    P.J. and R.T. are no shows….AGAIN. Simply no excuse for that. Herro too. That “inside look” at their practice showed more hustle and competitiveness. What a joke.

    P.J. needs to be benched and Nick should get 40 min./game. Herro needs to eat, sleep, and poop in the gym until he fixes his shot.
