HALF: Tennessee 27 Kentucky 26

After a half of mostly ugly basketball, Kentucky trails Tennessee by one, 27-26.

To say the start was slow is an understatement. Kentucky only had 12 points until about five minutes left when Jarred Vanderbilt got a big dunk, Kentucky’s only two-point field goal until that point. That dunk brought some life to the Cats and Rupp Arena, but unfortunately, Tennessee responded each time down the court.

Shoutout to Quade Green for hitting a three less than four minutes in to take care of the streak. He leads Kentucky in scoring with 10 points off a perfect 4-4 from the floor. More of that in the second half, please.

    Hamidou Diallo is just a really bad basketball player. Great athlete with crazy length, but absolutely no basketball skill and the worst basketball iq of any player I’ve seen play at UK.

      If we’re going to have low expectations of freshmen’s we’re in a world of hurt.

      I thought vitales comparison of him to briscoe was pretty interesting, hadn’t really compared the two but he could definitely be heading down that same path if he tries to leave after this year which I imagine he will

      He probably should go after this year if you think about it. He had higher draft potential BEFORE NBA execs had a chance to see him play in college.

    The standing around on both ends of the floor is maddening. And can we recruit a shooter?

    Cal couldn’t draw a stick figure on the play board. Doing less with more every year

    No it’s great. Really. We’re young that makes it all OK.
