…Doug Shows, Pat Adams, and Joe DeRosa. Yes, the same Doug Shows and Pat Adams that called a technical on John Calipari during the Louisville game a few weeks back.
In fact, according to BigBlueHistory.net, Shows has called four technicals on Calipari during his time at Kentucky. UK’s record in games Shows has officiated during the Calipari era? 34-8. Pat Adams isn’t the biggest fan of Calipari and the Cats either. In fact, I think you could argue he’s been worse the past few years.
Combine that with Shannon Spake’s tweet that Ben Simmons hit a halfcourt shot with his back to the basket in shootaround today and the Cats’ chances don’t look great; however, UK has one thing LSU doesn’t: Tyler Ulis. And that always makes me feel better.
