Kentucky Loses 81-78 to South Carolina on a Bank-Shot Three-Pointer at the Buzzer

For the fourth time in the John Calipari era, the Wildcats lost to South Carolina at Colonial Life Arena. Kentucky could not survive a late run by the Gamecocks, ultimately falling 81-78 on a desperation three-pointer at the buzzer.

To earn their first SEC victory of the season, South Carolina needed to score 56 second half points. It still almost wasn’t enough.

Kentucky led by double digits with 11 minutes to play when South Carolina started to make their run. They scored nine points in just over a minute to make it a game. The Cats temporarily delivered counter punches — Tyrese Maxey had two big ones from three — but none that could sustain the lead.

Justin Minaya was the straw that eventually broke the Wildcats’ back. His three-pointer from the corner gave the Gamecocks a 71-70 lead, their first of the night with 3:41 remaining. Kentucky took quick threes on consecutive possessions, opening the door for South Carolina to extend that lead to five.

Kentucky clawed back to make it a one-possession game not once, but twice in the final minute. On the first attempt, UK failed to convert two tip-ins following an Immanuel Quickley three-pointer. A few South Carolina missed free throws and 30 seconds later, Kentucky had the ball down two with 11.3 seconds on the clock.

Out of a timeout John Calipari dialed up an isolation to Quickley. The sophomore point guard buried the two from the corner to tie the game. Jermaine Couisnard never hesitated, sprinted up the court and banked one off the glass with two hands in his face to hand UK its first SEC loss of the season. He finished the night with a career-high 26 points.

South Carolina secured 20 offensive rebounds, Kentucky missed ten free throws and 54 total fouls were called in 40 minutes of action; not exactly a recipe for success on the road in the SEC.

    Got to put pressure on that guy after the shot. 4 seconds and he’s basically walked the ball to the three point line with no pressure at all.

      This!!! That was on Cal. IQ was on him, then looked to Cal and then backed up to our side of the court.

      Guy was able to focus on where he wanted to get to on the floor and the basket the entire way up the court.

      Only logical reason is maybe because of the fouls. You get worried the refs will call a little bump if you guard up the floor

      Should have called a time out and set up a defense to cause USC to use as much of that 4 seconds as possible before advancing to ball to half court. Bad coaching, IMO.

      Some people who have never played sports, especially basketball, don’t realize just how much of an effect bad officiating can have on a good team. Yes, we gave up way too many offensive rebounds, had careless turnovers, and missed free throws, but the referees had the reigns on us the entire game. They took away all our momentum, got nick in early foul trouble, killed the flow of the game, & basically didn’t allow us to play defense at all. I’m honestly not even mad at our guys for losing. SC hit so many lucky shots that 2nd half. But with normal officials, we win that game by 15+

    Ha ha ha ha; check out the half-time comments; I said we were going to blow this one; you could see it coming a mile away. Team totally out of control, playing through the wrong guys; wrong guys taking all the shots, wrong guys handling the ball 20 feet from the goal. Cal took the night off; a HS coach could have coached a better game.
    And this team is developing a bad habit; get up 12-14, and quit playing defense and rebounding…just quit; but, that’s on the coaching staff, too.

    Horrible D in the second half? No offense for the last 5 minutes, in ability to close out on shooters late in game? Missed Outbacks? Losing on a last second play? BAH GOD THATS KENTUCKYS MUSIC.

    I blame the 2015 FF loss for sending us off into a parallel universe. We have the worst luck recently..

      They had more fouls and we made more free throws. Still found a way to win. 6 more turnovers, low effort and poor rebounding lost the game. Nothing more. The refs just made it brutal to watch.

      This team still has a great chance to do something special and make a big run. Most people here need to just wait a day before posting. Go Cats.

      USC had a worse night but they won without 100 NBA picks on their roster. Every stat, except points scored , UK was better than USC so find another excuse. Maybe that last 3 did give USC the edge in 3 percentage but was even prior to it. Not like USC played great. Just like I try to tell all of you, Cal can’t coach. Boston U went there and won. Wichita St and Houston best this team by 20 plus. Even Stetson went there and won, how many draft picks does Stetson have? Takes 6 straight wins for a title, we did do that earlier this season but vs 6 teams that won’t make the tourney. June is coming.

    If USC made FT’s they would have won by 15. And had Louisville shot better than 45 percent from the line, we lose that one as well. This team is not any good. Guess Hagans isn’t flexing after this one.

    Listen this UK team just isn’t that good. No harm in admitting that as this recruiting class is probably the most overrated one Cal has had in his time at UK. I bet he quietly says that too.

    This team will not get past first weekend of the tournament. Please don’t say they will figure it out by March. Quit drinking the Cal Koolade. Cal wants players to fit his system instead of tailoring his around the players.

    Outstanding coaching job Frank Martin! You deployed the Bruce Pearl blueprint to beat UK in the 2nd half which is spread UK out, keep the lane empty and drive to the basket and either pass to an open player cutting to the basket or an open 3 point shooter. Every team that does that against UK will win no matter how good they are. 56 points scored by USC in the 2nd half.

    The 10 million dollar man is getting a head start on being the Sporting News Coach of the Decade for the 2nd consecutive time.

    Becoming so predictable it is comical. But, a bargain at 10 million plus per season.

    Worst half of the year far and away. Halfway through the season is a great time for that. Hagans trying to dunk over a 6’11 guy with 2 minutes to go was my favorite part.

    Too many minutes for our worst players. Why is Juzang out there? Why is Whitney out there? Give the main 5 guys a quick rest and put them right back in. Quit trying to keep these guys happy. If they can’t play let them sit. If they transfer after the season so be it.

    I rarely comment on here anymore but I have something on my mind. I know I’m going to get a bunch of crap for this but i don’t care because I’m sick of some of our “fans”. Why is it when we win the comment section is quiet as a graveyard but the second we lose every recliner/couch coach comes out and goes on a rant raining down gloom and doom all over the place? Losing sucks but we have to realize these are KIDS on the court. They are going to make mistakes. The coaches are human and are going to make mistakes. Too many people on here think that just because you put on a Kentucky jersey or get paid big bucks you should be perfect, have super powers to win ever game, and win a title ever year. That’s not going to happen. What is your complaining going to do? Not a dang thing. My husband and I support the team no matter what and we NEVER talk bad about our coaches or players because they do the best they can at the time. All you can do is learn from it and move forward. Watching on TV is not the same as being the person on the court or sidelines and I think we all need to remember it’s easy to tear someone down but hard to build someone up when you aren’t in their shoes.

      We are often referred to as the “best fan base in the American”. I disagree with that and have for years. What we have, is a bunch of entitled, whinny, annoying, couch coaches that think they know better. We lost and it sucked, but it happens. As a matter of fact, it happens often at South Carolina. I told my husband during the game that you could basically put on any of the games we have played in SC over the last couple of year and they look exactly like what we watched tonight. For some reason we struggle there. The fact of the matter is this team could go on a run and win the national title, or they could flame out and lose in the 2nd round, it has no real impact on anyone’s lives. It’s a game folks. Celebrate a win? Absolutely! Be upset over a loss? Understandable. I get mad and yell at the TV all the time. But at the end of the day it’s just pathetic to see the reactions on this board.

      Respectfully, I think one or two come here to rep the blue and white – but most come here for Cal’s primary goal – getting into the NBA – June, not April. That’s their dream. The system is screwed, and the notion of scholar athletes has just about fully faded – at least at big time schools.

      Having said that, I agree that trashing the kids is wrong and shameful. They are, after all, just kids. I believe they are all trying their best, and deserve our support. And they play their butts off because a will to win is necessary to get to the next level. I just don’t think the focus is fully on winning an NCAA title in the program from top to bottom.

    This will be the 5th year in a row without a Final Four appearance. But, the most important day of the year is coming in June. I believe the coach and his staff need a raise. They are not being paid enough to produce and the program facilities are behind other programs.

    My sense is that a large segment of the fan base has become increasingly frustrated since 2015, based on the revolving door known as OAD, Cal’s preoccupation with the NBA, and a number of truly terrible losses. I think that it’s reasonable and fair to say that the program has been less than stellar the last five years. The discontent has increased in intensity and erupts to the surface whenever there is a bad loss like tonight. It takes the form of a strong overreaction. The overreactions occur because they tap into the fear that Kentucky has lost status and prestige and is not the elite program that it was during Cal’s first seven years. While it is true that Kentucky fans are spoiled and have a sense of entitlement, it is also true that fan pressure has kept the program viable over several decades. No other program has won championships under five coaches. I can’t predict Cal’s future, but I am confident that the program will see more glory days because Kentucky fans will accept no less

      I agree Virginia Cat. The problem I have is:
      1. How do you get outcoached when you are the highest paid and the only coach with a lifetime contract? Answer: Cannot happen.
      2. Top 3 recruiting class all 11 years as coach and 1 title. 3 coaches have 2 titles each in that time period without that high of a class ranking in all 11 yrs.
      3. This coach plays to other teams strengths trying to send a message to beat teams at their own game. Kansas State game comes to mind.
      4. The length and athleticism of the players are not used. UK would be devastating if they pressed. Also, play a zone. UConn had a zone put on them and UK came back and took the lead and the zone was never used after that.
      5. Throws players under the bus but rarely points a finger at himself.

      George Steinbrenner use to say that if you want to be paid at the top of your profession then his expectation would be that there cannot be any mediocrity during the season on performance and no bone head type of plays.

    These so called recruiting gurus should be shot in the face for being so far off in their talent evaluations. I bet nerds like Evan Daniels didn’t even play high school ball. They ranked guys like Whitney, Brooks and Montgomery as 5 star players. Lol. Maybe it was just a typo.

    I’ll wager most of these Cal apologists were Tubby apologists.

    It was a loss measured in seconds, for cryin’ out loud. It wasn’t a blow-out. Yes, I felt bad. I always do when the cats lose, but the sky’s not falling, nor is the world (or this team or coaching staff) coming to an end. So what. It happens. Losses are a fact of life. Quickly was GREAT in this game, by the way. GO CATS!
