UK vs. Vanderbilt: First Half Comment Thread

vandy-uk

A slow-arriving crowd in Rupp Arena is ready for today’s game with Vanderbilt, Kentucky’s first home game in over a week. The Cats looked good in warm-ups and they’re ready to tip it off here momentarily. It’s a 4 pm start on ESPN for those of you at home.

Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray, Isaiah Briscoe, Alex Poythress and Derek Willis will start for UK. Willis is hoping make it three straight quality games after leading the team on the glass at Auburn and Arkansas.

Let’s discuss it below, shall we? We can talk about Nick’s baby beard.

    Wondering why the ball never gets passed to any of the people in the stands? Well it’s because they aren’t on the team. They are just there to watch.

    Charles Matthews’ last name ends with an ‘s’ but it isn’t because he is plural. It’s just because it ends with an ‘s’. There is only one of him.

    Sometimes players throw the ball right into the basket from above. These are called dunks and they are worth 2 points.

    Are we reading anything into Skal basically not playing? We are doing fine without him, but I thought he was pretty good Thursday so it must be something.
