You had to feel a little bit for Montana State head coach Brian Fish after the game. At the beginning of the game, the crowd actually gave his team a pity cheer when they finally made it across midcourt, a telling sign of their struggles throughout the night. Fish said after the game that John Calipari told him that tonight was the second best game Kentucky’s played all season. “He said that’s the second best game they played all year. It certainly felt that way. At times, you feel helpless because you don’t know which guy to attack,” Fish said. “It’s McDonald’s All-American after McDonald’s All-American.”

When asked why this was the second best performance by his team all season, Cal pointed to the defensive intensity. “We sustained defensively for the entire time, just like we did against Kansas,” Cal said. “Issue is we played the same way on offense, almost the same.”

And it’s only November.

    I think I figured out why the Kats are having such a hard time starting games offensively: The answer is themselves. The play against each other in practice so much that at the start of games they are still thinking, conscious and/or subconsciously, about getting block and it takes a few minutes and a few shots to re-calibrate to the fact that their shots are not going to be blocked and swatted at like they are in practice.
