Kentucky vs. LSU (Second Half Comment Thread)

lsuheader

It doesn’t get much uglier than Kentucky’s performance in the first half. With Marcus Lee, Skal Labissiere, and Isaac Humphries all in foul trouble, the Cats floundered, shooting only 32% from the floor. At half, it’s only a ten-point game, but considering Ben Simmons was also on the bench with foul trouble, it could have been (and could still be) much, much worse.

Only one way to find out. Join us for the second half to vent your anger and refresh the page with CTRL+F5 and Command+R.

    Mulder has 5 pts and 6 boards in 7 minutes. Most productive player on the floor tonight. If the starters can’t play, let the Juco show them up.

    Marcus Lee is the most important player on this team. I wonder what his +\- is because it seems like when he’s out they immediately lose 8-10 pts.

  3. Wasn’t able to check out the 1st half thread, but the main problem I saw in this game was no penetration. Sad that the lead only got bigger with Simmons sitting.

      and immediately after he wasn’t strong with the ball and lost it.

    Just give the ball to Murray and let him go



  42. EdC
    10:19 pm January 5, 2016 Permalink

    And again Poythress totally weak with the ball taken away from him. Does Calipari ever just admit it and try to develop somebody who cares?

  43. DEFENSE PLEASE!!!???



  44. muletrain53

    Poythress strongest guy on our team. Has rebound in hands and it gets taken away. Just graduate and go away.

  46. EdC

  268. plumloopy

    They played scared. Lee and Poythress were so nervous guarding Simmons, they played themselves out of the game. Ironically, Simmons wasn’t the huge factor and smart play might have kept them within a few points in the final minutes. Although, again, hit free throws decently and you don’t have to be desperate in the last five minutes.
