    Love the energy & intensity we have, but we gotta start taking & making good shots.

    Johnny Juzang giving ya great minutes! Big Nick is playing his ass off on both ends! Love the pace of this game. Let’s hope the refs continue to allow it to be somewhat physical & not kill the momentum

    These rims sound like sh*t

      I noticed the same thing. It’s like there no bounce off of them

      Wow what a last second shot from Quickley!!! Way to end the half fellas

      Damn I almost called it. Great look but took it way too early

    Hagans is playing like an elite point guard on offense. Tech can’t stop his penetration & when he’s looking to be a pass first pg, he’s at his best. LETS GOOOOOOO

    Tech has gotten away with at least 4 walks literally right in front of the refs! Unbelievable but then they call it on us



    • CrystalBall

      What about the time, after a Ky basket, the Tech player stepped inbounds before passing the ball.

    1.6 seconds, midcourt…I guess that’ll shut those people up!



    • ColoradoCatFan88

      I literally said that’ll sober me up after he hit that shot lol

      I had just taken a snort, and when it went in…Wild Turkey shot out of my nose; stung a little; but, I was happy.

      Hahaha that’s priceless

    Apparently 3 tech fans have been thrown out of the game for spitting on a Kentucky fan & using vulgar language towards our guys.. Sooooo I wonder if they university still feels good about that “free beer” idea?



    • KentuckyRob
      7:08 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I still can’t believe the University aloud that to happen. Unless the served O’Douls

      Allowed

      Overall their fans are just embarrassing. They waited in line for days for tickets to a January game of 15 v. 18 teams.

    If the cops have balls it will be DUI central on campus tonight.

    Great start to the 2nd half! Hagans, Quickley, & Richards are playing phenomenal



  10. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:22 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    When the officials aren’t calling ridiculous fouls, our defense is one of the best in the country.



  11. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:29 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Geez this team is so frustrating at times. They can literally go from great to terrible within minutes. Careless turnovers & mental breakdowns on defense are the reasons why they can never put teams away



  12. runningunnin.454
    7:30 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Two “palming calls” on us in the game…maybe I’ve seen two called all year.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      7:34 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I said the exact same thing. And some of these fouls they’re calling on us is ridiculous



  13. EdC
    7:33 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    All in all the officiating is better than the typical SEC game. It’s far from over but it feels like UK will win this one double digits.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      7:37 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I agree. This game is actually fun to watch because there aren’t 50 fouls being called



    • EdC
      7:39 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Colorado can you imagine if the Rupp crowd got as consistently excited about nothing as the Texas Tech fans?



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      7:43 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I said that exact same thing to my girlfriend. You couldn’t pay our old blue hairs to stand up & cheer. Hell they barely have enough energy to go take a piss at halftime lol



    • EdC

      Yea well … Depends

    Maxey needs to step up & hit some damn shots!!!



  15. spincr4hire

    Welp. We can’t extend a lead and may cost us again



  16. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:55 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    As much as I love this team, we are the absolute worst with a lead. We’ve blown almost every 2nd half lead we’ve had this season. So frustrating to watch



    • spincr4hire
      7:57 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Yup



    • runningunnin.454
      7:59 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      That’s because Cal tells them to start milking the clock with 7 minutes left in the game, and we stop running and gunning. They start trying to think, and we get turnovers.



    • EdC
      8:01 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed. My father used to hate the milk the clock mentality. Thankfully in football Gran seems to have finally learned that lesson.



  17. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:59 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    We need quickley or Maxey to hit some big shots here at the end..



  18. Perry1987
    8:00 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    My lord they cant put a team away and maintain a lead for anything. Somehow we get up 9-10 points and in the last 5 minutes of games we just seem to stop playing and let teams back in the game. No killer mentality. Keep the pedal down guys and let go!!



  19. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:01 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Maxey is killing us in this game



  20. Perry1987
    8:02 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Maxey has been AWFUL. Total wrecking ball while driving and getting called for a charge. Not to mention hes been so sloppy passing the ball.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:03 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Yea he’s done absolutely nothing to help us win this game. Let’s hope he can step up & knock down a big shot here at the end



  21. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:02 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    This stall ball bullshit Cal does in every 2nd half with a lead ruins us



  22. EdC
    8:03 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    It is a crying shame if they lose this game. UK is clearly the better team for most of the game but no rip the throat out mentality. Whatever happens it is just January. Regardless of what the Texas Tech fans think paying $395 for tickets and waiting in line for days it isn’t a big game.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:04 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      We’re gonna win



  23. Perry1987
    8:06 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Cmon Nick we need this freethrow!



  24. EdC
    8:06 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    That was a moving screen.



  25. ColoradoCatFan88

    Quickley hits the game winner, let’s go!!!



    • EdC
      8:10 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Nick for the tip in



  26. Perry1987
    8:09 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Draw the game winner up Cal! Lets go guys!



    • EdC
      8:11 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Why in the world do you draw up a 3 point play when all you need is a 2 or a foul?



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:12 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Quickley has hit 4 today so maybe Cal felt like he had the hot hand.. regardless let’s win this in overtime!



  27. Perry1987
    8:10 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Thought Quickly had that!



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:11 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Damn I almost called it. Took that shot way too soon but it was a great look



  28. EdC
    8:12 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    You HAVE to win with a 2 or tie with either Nick, Quickly or Hagans at the line.



  29. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:13 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    The ref threw the ball towards their guy on that jump ball my gosh



  30. runningunnin.454
    8:13 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    5:00…don’t make ’em think, Cal; let’s just play ball.



  31. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:14 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Maxey owes us at least one made shot in overtime.. or put Johnny back in the game because he was playing really well on both ends



  32. EdC
    8:14 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    I just realized I haven’t felt the need to mute Jimmy Dykes this game. He must have actually been talking about this game for a change instead of rambling nonsense.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:15 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Lol yea he’s done a decent job tonight



  33. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:15 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    BIG NICK!!!!!!!



    • EdC
      8:16 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I love his confidence this year vs how quite he was his first 2 years. No way did he have the confidence to chirp at the crowd in years past.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:18 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed!



  34. ColoradoCatFan88

    Nate Sestina!!!!



  35. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:17 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    That’s not a charge!!!!! Player slid up under him while he was in the air



    • EdC
      8:18 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Either way Quickly has to be smarter than that on the road.



  36. EdC
    8:17 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    And again Quickly has to do something stupid.



  37. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:19 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    18 Turnovers & no telling how many points they’ve scored off em.. if we lose, that’s the reason. We can’t have more than 10 a game



    • EdC
      8:20 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Especially with 3 solid guards on the floor at most times.



  38. EdC
    8:22 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Maxey 2-10 from the field 3 assists to 5 turnovers.



  39. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:22 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    That’s a pansy ass flop!!!!!



  40. ColoradoCatFan88

    That’s not over and back wtf!!????



  41. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:23 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    That’s our ball!!!!!



  42. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:24 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Unbelievable! Just when I bragged on these refs they prove me wrong



  43. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:25 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Refs screwed Sestina all game



  44. EdC
    8:25 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Man Sestina had not helped much in the last few with the quick 3 pointer and the dumb foul.



  45. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:28 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Montgomery is a moron



  46. EdC

    Anybody taking a bet the fans rush the floor if they win?



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:29 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I sure hope they don’t. Could get real ugly..



    • EdC
      8:30 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      They feel a lot like Indiana fans to me. I’m expecting it.



  47. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:29 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    And then we don’t get the rebound.. we deserve to lose this game! Dammit



  48. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:32 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Ej makes a careless foul and then doesn’t grab the rebound.. kid is the most frustrating player on the team



  49. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:33 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Good defense Ej! Come on nick



  50. ColoradoCatFan88

    Nix Richards is our savior. What a game, what a win!!



    • EdC
      8:41 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      I am really happy for Nick. I have been a fan from day 1 and am really happy that he stayed and that it worked out for him. Would love to see him as a Sr. hearing My Old Kentucky Home but I get it that it’s his time to leave.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:47 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Oh yea, as much as I’d love to have him back next season with the studs we have coming in, the kid is easily a 1st round draft pick, maybe even lottery if he keeps playing & improving the way he has. He will be a very solid player in the NBA



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      8:43 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah, he drug us across the finish line.



    • chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door
      8:49 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      And Hagans getting his hand on the ball at the end was obviously yuge, but earlier when he broke up the runout just at the end was also.

      Quickley’s half court 3 was huge also, but he mad several mental errors also.

      One thing about Sestina seems to be that he’s a 3 point shooter and that’s it. I don’t see any basketball moves down low, not to mention no D, and not a ton of rebounding.



    • Perry1987
      9:37 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      NICK RICHARDS!!! What a stat line. 25-13-4. Wow. The most improved player of the year thus far folks! What a turnaround. Where would we be without this guy, loved his energy and poise tonight. He definitely brought his A game to Lubbock. Excellent game young man, were all so very grateful that your part of the University of Kentucky basketball team!!



  54. EdC

    They better have a suicide watch going in Texas considering how important their fans thought this game was.



    • spincr4hire

      Glad we didn’t have to see those clowns rush the court. Big win for the cats !



  55. 4everUKBlue
    8:39 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Huge free throws by Nick and Hagans was huge, other trying to be a hero when the clock was with us that time.



  56. 4everUKBlue
    8:40 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

    Maxey’s worst game by far.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:48 pm January 25, 2020 Permalink

      Yea, I honestly think Juzang should’ve gotten more minutes in the 2nd half instead of Hagans. His poor shot selection & careless turnovers almost cost us that game
