UK vs. Arizona State: Second Half Comment Thread

uk-asu

Kentucky will take a 32-31 lead into the second half of action with hopes of stretching this one out and putting the Sun Devils away. For that to happen, the Cats will need to shoot better than 1-for-11 from deep, among other things. (Are you here, Skal?)

Let’s chat below.

    Went back and looked for the play Alex got injured on. Seemed to happen on the fast break layup but didn’t seem major. Just taking big steps running down the court.

    Guys, I just went back and watch the last couple of minutes Alex was in. There were 3 Different Pl. where he went up and came down tangled up with someone. But he was never limping, or favoring the knee at any point that I could see.

    That guy drove right at Poythress’ bad knee, then tried to dunk on him. He was going to give him the layup, but HELL NO to the dunk

    Remember the exhibition games when we were saying this might be Cal’s most fun team to watch? Yeah, me neither.

  25. I love Dickie V but someone tell him we get it already. We heard him the first 10 times he said we aren’t elite.

    I didn’t expect it, but Briscoe may be my favorite player on this team other than Ulis.

      Jamal Murray isn’t going to let him have all of the fun

  30. Hopefully that will help Murray get on track.

    I actually feel bad for Skal. He looks miserable on the bench.



    • Wildc8ts
      4:45 pm December 12, 2015 Permalink

      Unfortunately, he looks more miserable on the floor. Less and less of a prospect and more and more of a project.



    • Classof89
      4:48 pm December 12, 2015 Permalink

      He’s a kid that hasn’t played very much REAL basketball that everyone hyped as the next AD and now are screaming obscenities at him from the stands! I wanted to bitch slap some jackass at the last game that was yelling at him!

    • ANYONE screaming obscenities at a college player should be thrown out of the arena.

      I just don’t think Cal is doing him any favors at this point starting him. I know it would be a blow coming off of the bench but every team knows exactly how to play him. Put him on the Melvin Turpin Pizza sneak the pizza through the window diet, toughen him up some and work his way into the lineup.

    Everyone should give Skal a break. I feel sorry for him he is trying so hard but just doesn’t have the experience of everyone else. He will get it!!



    • Sir Brandon
      4:47 pm December 12, 2015 Permalink

      Agree. Giveth the kid some time. It taketh Karl a bit to adjust. Skal hath not the advantage of WCS to taketh his minutes (and fanfocus)



  33. Rajonrondo9

    I want Skal to succeed so bad! I think he’ll get it together.



  34. Mrs. Tyler Thompson

    It looked like he was about to cry on the bench

  43. Willis’ 3 was like the 8 ball bouncing around and in the corner pocket.

    I’m starting to not become too worried about Skal and his foul trouble. I feel for the kid, but he is not putting up any production when he goes up against someone who plays him tough.

    I swore I wouldn’t say this, BUT … We may really need the big new boy to produce. Skal’s 0points,o rebounds,and 5 fouls in 13 min will not cut it.
