Kentucky Falls Two Spots in Coaches Poll

The week 12 edition of the college basketball Coaches Poll was not as volatile as the AP Poll.

AP voters penalized UK five spots for the South Carolina loss, while only dropping the Wildcats two spots from 12 to No. 14 in the Coaches’ Poll. The coaches kept Gonzaga at No. 1, Louisville took a big leap all the way to No. 5 and Kentucky’s next Saturday opponent, Texas Tech, jumped up to No. 18.

    I’m not sure I agree with either of these and believe we’re closer to ten. It’s cool though because I like how this team is starting to come together. We’ve got everything we need to win Six straight in March and enough heart and free throw shooting to win the close games. I love this team, I really do. I believe they’re as close as any team in a long time and hopefully that helps down the road. I’m very excited about the rest of the year and love our chances in the Tournament. Go Cats!

    I’m my opinion, this is the best job by Cal since he’s been here. I really believe that. It’s unbelievable what he’s doing with this group, they’re all starting to play their best basketball now also and it’s going to be hard for someone to beat them out in March.

    JASUN74. I really hope they are playing their best. After tomorrow night 5 of their next 8 games are on the road. All SEC road games are tough.

    Yes, it’s going to be tough as hell to come away from this next bunch of game undefeated for sure. We can certainly do it , we just got to take it. It’s getting fun though. Lol. I’m loving this team more and more and they’re showing a lot of heart. It’s getting ready to show us what we’re about Crystal, I sure do love the growth and the fight in this bunch. I’m all in. Go Cats!!
