Kentucky is No. 19 in new Jay Bilas Index

bilas

Jay Bilas updated his ranking of the 68 best teams in college basketball today and he has the Kentucky Wildcats in his top 20.

The Cats rank 19th in Volume VI of The Bilas Index for the 2016 season:

19. Kentucky Wildcats

In 15 games this season, Tyler Ulis has been responsible for at least 10 of Kentucky’s field goals. He did so only once last season. Kentucky gives up an assist on only 40 percent of its opponents’ field goals, the lowest assist rate in the nation.

Bilas has a top five of Oklahoma, Maryland, Villanova, North Carolina and Iowa. What a bizzare year of college basketball.

    It has been a bizarre year of basketball, however I enjoy that kind of thing, as long as the Cats are still good. It’s like they said in The Godfather. To paraphrase, these kinds of things have to happen every 10 years or so, get all the bad blood out.

    That stat by Bilas showing the Cats with allowing an assist only 40% of the time. I think it was better than that yesterday because their defense took GA completely out of their game. It shows teams they will have to employ a “go find your shot” offense and good luck with that when Tyler, Briscoe and Dom are harassing them.

      Dominique, Briscoe, and Ulis make for an absolute NUISANCE for the opposing perimeter players. LOVE it!

      It is pretty fun watching those three play defense.

      You know what isnt fun??? Watching those three guys shoot 3’s and jumpers. Throw in Poythress and you would be able to build a beautiful million-dollar brick home.

      They’ve been shooting it pretty good recently.

      Well, except for Briscoe.

      Hey nets, how did the beating we gave your dukies earlier this year feel?

      Ulis is shooting 44.4% on the year, 31.1% from 3 and 52.7% from 2.

      Our 2015 National Championship DVD is pretty fun to watch, you got one??
      As far as I’m concerned, UK has 6 losses, and Duke has 6 losses. Duke with the MUCH tougher schedule and worse injury luck.
      Duke’s next 3 games are UVA, @ UNC, @ Katina-Powell. Unfortunately, Duke doesn’t have a healthy buffet of SEC schools whose basketball budget is smaller than Calipari’s yearly income.

      It’s odd that UK just destroyed the same Georgia team that has blown out 2 ACC teams. I

      lol nets mentioning last year bc they SUCK this year. we stomped that ass. Your little girls are out tripping people on the court bc they can’t physically hang. Seriously, what kind of little b!tch do you have to be to lay on the ground and purposely trip a guy? Grayson Allen is pathetic, just like the rest of the Dukies this year.

      74 – 63 sucker.

      One of Duke’s 6 losses is to UK. 2 of our next 3 opponents are ranked teams on the road, so what’s your point.

      Way to keep showing everyone what a loser troll you are.

    The Cats are coming along fine. There’s only one major test they have to pass: winning on the road against a decent opponent.

      Got two chances coming up on two BIG Saturday noon games…USC and TA&M.

    Nets……… Duke should take some of that basketball budget and build you a Duke website you can troll on.

    Being No. 19 this year doesn’t mean there’s much difference between you and those in the Top 10, maybe even the Top 5 (consider how we played in the Phog). This is about as much parity as I have ever seen, what with so many Top 10 teams going down.

    Great point BP! I love watching that dorky kid, whats his name…kinnard or something like that,you know the 4 year guy. He gets the ball swatted back at him every time he doesn’t flop and enters the lane. And, what is really funny when that plumlee guy does something like all 7′ 2″ guys are supposed to do he forgets about getting down the floor while waiting for praise from his guys!

    All you slapdicks forgot to mention that Jay Bilas had Louisville as his number 6 team. How could you fail to mention that ? Just like a bunch of 3 rd. graders with a lo IQ.

      That last sentence speaks volumes about you. It’s hilarious that you would even consider calling somebody else unintelligent.
