Kevin Knox: “It’s do or die now”

Kentucky ended the regular season on a disappointing note, but the Cats aren’t lingering on their loss to Florida. 

“We’ve moved on from Florida,” Shai Gilgeous-Alexander told reporters today. “We obviously had a bad performance. We’re just trying to fix what we did bad. We watched (film) a couple of days ago. We watched and now we’ve moved on.”

When asked, Kevin Knox was at a loss for words for Kentucky’s lackluster effort, but vowed the Cats would play with the sense of urgency required in the postseason.

“I don’t know, to be honest. We just came off a four-game winning streak. We were playing really well. I don’t know why we didn’t come out and pass, but it’s do or die now. You gotta be able to come out and play. We can’t play like we did on Saturday.”

Gilgeous-Alexander echoed that mantra.

“Do or die,” Shai said. “(The mentality) is to just go at other teams. It’s us against the world.”

So, which team will we see in St. Louis this weekend?

“I’m pretty sure that the team that won four games in a row will show up for the rest of the year,” Knox said. “We just gotta be able to come out, play together, play hard and play like we did when we won four in a row. If we play like that, we’ll go pretty far in the tournament.”

I don’t think anybody would argue with that last statement.

    I still can’t figure out why they reverted so badly Saturday. I hope they do.

      Because they’re not very good. People can admit to reality or not but they’re just not.

    They rverted bc they got rattled and went to habits. UF was a sign of immaturity. Its common with young players.

    If they do,
    advance. If not go home. No high expectations this tourney. It’s easier that way

    If this team wants to get deep into either tourney they have got to play like they did against Arkansas, Mo. and they don’t have the time to fall back into bad habits. I’m very interested in where they will be putting us in the ncaa tourney
