Kentucky is a good shooting team that’s not making shots, says Cal

Kentucky’s three-point shooting has been atrocious in its last four games, since hitting 8-of-18 from deep against UT Arlington. The Cats have gone 2-for-7, 1-for-12, 3-for-13, and 2-for-17 for a grand total of 8-for-49 in games after Thanksgiving. That’s 16 percent, folks. And that’s not good.

“It’s our third game in a row where we’re not making shots. I mean literally not making open shots, shooting airballs and plugging them and missing so poorly,” Calipari said of his team’s cold streak. “The crazy thing is, we’ve got good three-point shooters, we’ve got good shooters. We’re a good shooting team that’s not making shots. Thank goodness we’re a good defensive team because this isn’t the first game we’ve shot the ball like this.”

Cal joked that he’s going to have them practice on the public courts outside the Joe Craft Center so maybe the wind will blow the ball in, because shooting inside isn’t working.

Let’s get that fixed by Saturday.

    I think when they look at the film they will realize we took a lot of bad shots tonight! No rythem, one pass shoot, some VERY deep! We just didn’t need that! Should have DD’ed the ball more, this team couldn’t guard penetration! Our spacing was horrible! But, it’s a W!

    We need to get to Beatin the Cheatin Tarholes!

    Shooting is rhythm, confidence, and endless correct practice repetitions…
