Underrated moment in the game: Keldon Johnson and EJ Montgomery calming Nick Richards down.

It’s unclear what Nick Richards said when he was pulled from the game after a (bogus) foul call, but whatever he said, it caught the attention of teammates Keldon Johnson and EJ Montgomery. Johnson and Montgomery were quick to silence Richards’ frustration and lift his head up as Calipari walked by.

It’s what you want to see out of your team, especially two freshmen coming to the aid of a sophomore. But we really want to know what was said.

We need more of this enthusiasm in the lower level.

Big shout-out to Tyler Kratzer for bringing the energy to the eRupption Zone last night. Tyler is one of our employees at KSBar and Grille and we were thrilled to find out he didn’t have a heart attack during the game last night. We were a little worried.

He brings that same passion to work everyday.

You know what wasn’t a three-second violation? This.

However, the official called Reid Travis for a three-second violation. Reid Travis, who wasn’t standing in the lane.

Aric Holman didn’t score and that’s awesome because we learned he grew up a Louisville fan.

Mississippi State’s Aric Holman, a native of Owensboro, Ky., did not score a single point against Kentucky with 45 friends and family members in Rupp Arena to watch him play. Holman entered the game averaging 12.4 points for the Bulldogs in his senior season, but Kentucky’s bigs held him to ZERO in his final homecoming game in the Bluegrass.

More importantly, we learned on the broadcast that Holman grew up rooting for Louisville and dreamed of playing for the Cardinals. I no longer have any sympathy for my fellow Western Kentuckian.

Ben Howland had really nice things to say after the loss.

Read his opening remarks about the Cats:

“I thought the University of Kentucky was really impressive tonight. Facing them here, I liked their defense in particular, they really caused us a lot of problems. They forced us nine turnovers in the first half, although two or three of those were ones where we shot our self in the foot. I thought they had us playing fast and had us playing to where we were in a hurry rather than being in control offensively in the first half, and we were probably fortunate to only be down eight, and I thought we did a great job battling back. It was 41-39 and they called a timeout and we had some momentum at that point and right away they came out and really executed well on both ends of the floor. We were in about six or seven minutes where they were scoring four points and we really struggled tonight offensively and give them credit with their defense.”

Coach Cal hasn’t watched one thing on Kansas this season, he says. (Okay, four minutes, maybe.)

“I have not watched one thing on Kansas,” he said Tuesday night, when looking ahead to Saturday’s big game. “I watched a little bit of maybe Iowa State, maybe. I think I watched maybe four minutes of them, live TV. I can’t tell you one thing about how they play.”

He better get familiar with the Jayhawks because Bill Self and his fake hair and his ninth-ranked team will be here Saturday.

Go Cats.

    So that was a 3 second violation that was called? That’s what I initially thought but after rewinding and watching like 5x I was so confused. There were 3-5 calls in this game that all went against Uk that were just completely made up.

      That was not a 3 second call. Tyler intentionally left the court and used to that advantage to receive a pass. That is a turnover Murray and Monk got called for some too.

      I know that rule but that is not what was called. The ref signals 3 seconds and the turnover was given to Reid.

      I think the stat guy just got the call wrong. The ref never indicated it was Reid, and I think he was doing the “over and back” motion on the baseline. Herro should of been given the turnover.

      With that said the official rulebook only says the player needs to reestablish themselves inbounds, and not be the first to touch the ball. Herro clearly was back in the court of play, and Hagans was clearly the first to touch the ball while Herro came back in. I agree blown call and poor signaling unless someone can change my mind.

      “Section 3. Player Out of Bounds
      Art. 1. A player who steps out of bounds under his own volition and then
      becomes the first player to touch the ball after returning to the playing court
      has committed a violation.
      a. A violation has not been committed when a player, who steps out of
      bounds as permitted by Rule 7-4.6.b, does not receive the pass along the
      end line from a teammate and is the first to touch the ball after his return
      to the playing court”

    I could be wrong, but isn’t there a rule about running out of bounds and not being able to catch the next pass? I thought that’s what the three second violation on Travis actually was. Herro ran out, came back in, and then caught the pass.

      I considered that too but they gave the turnover to Reid and look at the refs hand motion

      Yep; Tyler was out of bounds, so he couldn’t come in and take the pass. That’s happened twice this year. It actually looks like a set play, but it’s not legal to go out of bounds voluntarily.
      The official wasn’t signaling 3 sec; he was signaling out/in.

      Again the turnover was given to Reid so while that sounds good that’s no what was called.



    • runningunnin.454
      9:28 am January 23, 2019 Permalink

      Well, they need to correct that; there was never a question of 3 sec call…no UK player was ever in the lane.
      Again, the official’s signal was directed at the baseline, not the lane.

      His hand motion is sort of like the over-and-back motion, as if to say Herro stepped out of bounds and then stepped back in. Idk who was credited with a turnover, but that’s what the official called. He blew his whistle as soon as Herro caught the pass, and you can tell he watched Herro, anticipating it after he stepped out of bounds.

      And speaking of calls; what’s with players dribbling with one hand, pushing the defender in the chest with the other (sometimes a couple of feet backwards) to get the shot. Miss State did that twice, blatantly, out in the open floor right in front of the ref.
      In my day…that was an offensive foul.

      That push off of Hagans at about the free throw line was ridiculous. Ref was looking straight at it when it happened and did nothing. The forearm shiver earlier in the game was just about as bad.

      The rule states: The rules of basketball make it pretty clear that you can’t touch the ball while any part of you is out of bounds. The rules are different if a player steps out without the ball. Players who go out of bounds can legally rejoin the play and touch the ball once they have both feet back on the court. Tyler was back in bounds by several steps. This was a bad three second violation call.

      RJ Barrett has gotten away with pushing off all year long. He does it on every drive. If the refs would call it he would foul out within the 1st 10 minutes of the game.

    Okay after watching again the hand motion was out and in and I guess they just gave the turnover to the wrong person. It would have helped if Dicky V wasn’t talking nonsense the whole game and actually talked about what was going on.

      Ben27 — A player cannot go out of bounds, come back in bounds, and be the first person to touch the ball. It has nothing to do with establishing one’s self in bounds. I don’t like the rule and haven’t seen it called until this year (twice on Tyler), but it is a rule.

    Keldon and EJ is what it looks like when the teacher walks by after you been cheating on your spelling test.

    Nick was mad and said something because Cal unfairly took him out of the game. I love Cal, but he jerks Nick out of the game for the smallest mistakes.
