Isiah Briscoe’s Triple-Double Leads UK Over Ole Miss, 99-76

Ole Miss rolled out the red carpet to open their new gym, but Isaiah Briscoe stole the show.

Briscoe recorded UK’s third EVER triple-double, the second this season, finishing with 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.  Derek Willis deserves some credit.  Briscoe needed a badly missed free throw to get his final rebound.  Willis made sure the ball bounced Briscoe’s way with under three minutes to play.

After only one triple-double in 100 years, UK has two in the last seven games.  Unbelievable.

The box score from tonight’s SEC opening blow-out victory:

    Not complaining or anything. Not busting on the guy or Cal. Just curiosity here.

    I’ve only been able to watch two games this year because of my location.

    Question???

    Why does Sacha Killeya-Jones get almost zero playing time? I thought he was a highly rated player.

      Only Cal and the team know for sure but best bet is that he is getting out worked in practice.

      Really surprised by that as well, especially when I saw him bring in Wynyard in the first half.

      That’s not a complaint, that is a very valid point. I think Cal’s son got in the game before Sacha and that’s complete BS if you ask me.

    glad to see cats pulled away early. Although I must point out the pavilion has been open since January 2015 with multiple games played there before this one

      January 2016 per ESPN graphic during game. It still has that new arena scent.

      Sorry typo, yeah 2016 but they’ve played in it before today. Doesn’t matter. Another cat making history

    I don’t understand why Fox is missing so many FTs now, went 1/3 tonight. The first 3 games he went 21/21 … the last 10 games he has gone 36/59 (61%). This has to be a focus issue. We really need him to stay focused, be a floor general and keep the game from getting sloppy like it did. Hope his shot overall just comes around by the end of the year, that would be a game changer.

    Bam also on a bad streak. He was a 68% FT shooter through the first 9 games and has gone 3/14 in the last 4 games, including a costly 1/6 at UL.

    Just looking for things to complain about in a W. Typical UK fan.

      Agreed. People used to sort of laugh at Macy for the routine but really free throws are similar to putting in golf. Every single pro golfer has a set routine for putting. It eliminates uncertainty. No reason not to have one in basketball but when you watch most of these guys it’s just walk up and shoot it. Not a great recipe for concentration.

      Before somebody jumps in with how they don’t get that luxury in jump shots I consider that not to be relevant. It didn’t hurt Macy’s jump shot and a set shot gives one an opportunity that a jump shot doesn’t. There’s no chance of a defender rushing at you, you don’t have to wonder where the peak of your jump is, etc. etc. It can be very repeatable. Same distance every time, same basket height every time.

      We should also go back to peach baskets, the way the game was meant to be played.
