Kentucky is 0-11 when down 10 at halftime under Calipari

Here’s some news that doesn’t sit well with the current score.

According to Big Blue History, Kentucky has never won a game when trailing by 10 or more points at halftime in the John Calipari era. Cal’s Cats are 0-11 against double-digit halftime deficits.

Seven of those came on the road, two at home and two on neutral sites.

Sounds like he’s due!

    Skal looks like Shawn Bradley in Space Jam when the aliens stole his skills.

    After this many games some things are clear. Briscoe was over ranked. Beyond 10 ft Ray Charles is a better shooter. He is a liability on offense. I like Skal but he is clearly overmatched in most cases. He needs to put on 30 lbs to be effective and needs a little Magloire in him.

    In the end, the pieces rarely fit together and will be a Sweet 16 team at best…..Well..there is always next year…

      Sweet Sixteen?? I assume you meant the Sweet 16 of the NIT.. Except for Ulis, this is the softest bball team in the nation.

    This game will be no different. Alex has 2 points and Lee has 0. Unless Murray goes into ultra beast mode and puts up 40 this half – this game is over.

    Actually they were down by 17 to Mississippi State in 2012 at halftime and came back and won.

    Skal = MOST OVERRATED PLAYER IN KENTUCKY HISTORY
    Briscoe = A non-shooting Archie Goodwin …worst shooting guard in UK history

    This team sucks.

    Ridiculous and embarrassing in the playing and coaching. I don’t know how a team could make LSU look so good. Our bigs play like gumby and “5 star” players can’t shoot a basketball, and shoot 35% from the free throw line. Out rebounded by double digits…

    Worst part is our upperclassmen Lee,Poythress did not show up at all. They should be completely embarrassed. I know I am!

    We will not be enjoying the NBA draft this year.

    We will have a very deep bench next year if things don’t change quickly.

    At Mississippi State in 2012 the Cats were down 13 at halftime and ended up winning by 9.

    Not a surprising state. Every coach has their “thing” and in game adjustments are not Cal’s “thing”. He is a coach that has the motto, “we’re going to do what we do, you have to stop it” and sometimes that works out, but other times, like when the team is trailing, that mind site typically gets you beat.

    Others have pointed out Mississippi State in 2012. Facts are optional.

    Other news, we haven’t won any games under Cal when down after the end of the 2nd half.
