      Yea he has. He needs some help on the offensive end

    • EdC
      7:27 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      Agreed but Calipari keeps yapping about him being the best point guard in the country. What I will say is he is showing more heart on the boards than anybody else on the team.

      “Coach” Jimmy Dykes who couldn’t keep any assistant job for long so he went to women’s ball to fail there and get fired. Embarrassing that he spent time at UK.

    We look worse than ever on both ends. Great steak by Hagans, but of course he can’t finish the dunk

    7:31 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    If the coaches continue to teach the guys to chase the ball, and leave a wide open 3 shooter, this season is over. Can’t play like that in the college game today…maybe against Temple 30 years ago.



  25. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:33 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    And now the refs start calling their ghost fouls..



    • mashburnfan1
      7:41 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      As you make that stupid comment the fouls are seven on Vandy and four on Kentucky excuse me five on Kentucky and we just got away with a foul on their shot



  26. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:34 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    This is absolutely embarrassing. If we don’t cut the lead to single digits by half, I’m not watching the 2nd half. This team may have already peaked & that’s definitely not a compliment



  27. ColoradoCatFan88

    Where the f*ck is our perimeter defense!? Jesus Christ



    • EdC

    It will absolutely not shock me if we get blown out in our first round game of the NCAA tourney by a 12 or 13 seed



  34. EdC
    7:46 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    This team also just has to have Richards at his normal level to have any chance. Not blaming him at all but there isn’t anybody else that is willing or able to pick up that slack.



  35. ColoradoCatFan88

    Richards looks like the old freshman Nick Richards.. what a frustrating night this is

      Dude you’re an idiot. I have no idea what you’re even referring to. I talk on these threads every game, good or bad.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      7:51 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      Lol exactly what I was thinking. I’ve had a rough day as it is. Was hoping to be able to come home, read, & actually enjoy this game. But no, it’s only given me a bigger headache unfortunately



    • spincr4hire

      I wish we could actually enjoy a blowout this season. Not gonna happen.

      Sorry Colorado fan had to make a joke after you called me a moron. No mash is a troll. Slater’s new account.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      7:58 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      I give every coach & player credit when it’s due. But I’ll never sugarcoat it when they aren’t. We look like absolute sh*t tonight on both ends & it’s extremely frustrating given the fact that the ncaa tourney is a month away.



    • Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
      8:03 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      You’re right. You don’t have to defend yourself. I was talking about a whole other account.



  39. ColoradoCatFan88
    7:49 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    I said if we got it to single digits by half I’d watch the 2nd half.. kinda regret saying that but I’ll hold true to my word. Ugh can we please come out & shoot lights out next half please!?



  40. runningunnin.454
    7:52 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    Two tell-tale signs; Quickley leads the fast break, and all 5 Vandy players beat our other four up the floor.
    Then we’re down 12, and we’re walking the ball up the floor.
    I watched UMass the other day, and after 1:00 minute, the coach benched all five starters, and played subs for 5 minutes…I’ve wanted to do that a few times this year, ha ha.



    • Rob
      7:58 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      Is that when IQ tried to score with 3 or 4 defenders on him? Threw up a crazy shot.



    • runningunnin.454
      8:00 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      No, he held up, and waited for the rest of the team, lol.



    • runningunnin.454
      8:01 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      BTW, benching the starters worked, UMass won the game.

      What would the world think if a bunch of guys Cal said wasn’t ready came back and took the lead?



  41. Bluehender
    8:02 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    A few adjustments at half, keep your man in front of you, as rg said, run a little better offense and we can’t get back in this game. Man the comments are 5 times as many when we’re losing as they are when we’re ahead..



    • Bluehender

      CAN..not can’t.



  42. jaws2
    8:05 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    This team is completely disjointed on both offense and defense. On both they get caught looking at Cal screaming from the bench constantly. On offense they are completely confused by what to run. This may be the poorest defensive team Cal has had. They either can’t do what he wants, or just have no idea what to do. It’s sad.



  43. EdC
    8:05 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    I still think we win this game. We win the boards 2nd half. We don’t continue to shoot 33% from the field and Vandy doesn’t continue to shoot 50% from 3.



  44. EdC
    8:08 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    OK if we can’t make layups I’m clearly wrong.



  45. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:08 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    Way to miss a wide open layup Hagans!



  46. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree
    8:09 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    At this point if Hagans drives he should just look for an open teammate.



  47. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:10 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    Come on fellas, let’s go!!! Vandy is gonna let us back in this game if we don’t just completely screw ourselves



  48. ColoradoCatFan88

    There’s the Nick Richards we need!!!



  49. EdC

    No Haggans didn’t get punched in the face right in front of a ref. at all.



  50. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:12 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    When Nick is active & energetic on both ends, this team is at its best.



    • EdC
      8:15 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      I think the refs got into his head on the very first play whey they rewarded the Vandy flop.



  51. ColoradoCatFan88

    Hagans with another missed layup, go figure



  52. EdC

    I’ve been watching Sestina this half. He has been playing solid help D, switching back, etc.

  57. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:19 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    Love how Maxey takes over, but damn Sestina was wide open on that fast break & he just completely looked him off & took it in for the foul. Better hit both free throws & tie this thing up



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:19 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      Shit it wasn’t even on the shot..



  58. EdC
    8:20 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    I hate to jinx it but Hagans actually has an assist to turnover ratio so far in this game instead of a turnover to assist ratio.



  59. ColoradoCatFan88
    8:23 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    Omg Ej got an offensive rebound & ALMOST put it back in.. lol



  60. EdC
    8:24 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

    That was Hagans’ 10th rebound



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:25 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      There’s no doubt he’s a solid defender & rebounder, he just has to limit his careless turnovers & find a way to put the ball in the hole more if he’s gonna shoot 10 shots a game



    • EdC
      8:26 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      So far so good tonight on turnovers. Just 1 with 4 assists. Imagine if he hit his layups.



  61. ColoradoCatFan88

    Nice transition & great decision Hagans!!!

    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:27 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      I agree but with all the layups/dunks he misses, on top of the careless turnovers.. it’s hard not to point that out jokingly or not



    • 4everUKBlue
      8:28 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      I’m pissed at him too but keep the faith man.



    • ColoradoCatFan88
      8:29 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      After 25 turnovers in the past 4 games on top of all the missed layups, I think as a fan I’m allowed to be a little but frustrated with his play



    • 4everUKBlue
      8:31 pm February 11, 2020 Permalink

      I’m just as frustrated

      They really should try to help him get it but with Nick gone much less likely.

      Who knows Maxey is getting in and Quickley is hitting daggers.

    I want some of what Jimmy Dykes is taking if he thinks Hagans has made a strong case for SEC player of the year with a <2 asst. to turnover ratio. Great game tonight but not nearly enough time for him to make up for all those horrible turnovers as a point guard.

    I’ll take a double double with 8 assist from the PGA position any day.

      Absolutely but that is an exceptional game from him. Not a normal one.
