UK vs. Wright State (Second Half Comment Thread)

uk-wright

Wright State kept it a little closer than Kentucky fans had hoped in the first half, hanging around with a 13-point deficit. The second half should be a different story if the Wildcats kick it into another gear and run away with this thing.

Tyler Ulis is on double-double watch with 10 points and four assists in the first half. Isaiah Briscoe and Skal Labissiere trail him in the point column with eight apiece.

Time for 20 more minutes of Kentucky basketball.

    Is Briscoe able to talk on defense while chewing on his mouthguard?

    sorry MTT, just saw your answer from earlier. Can’t say Ive had Good People. Did you go to Great Lakes Brewery when you were in Cleveland. They have really good beer, esp. IPA’s. Chillwave Double IPA from them is my favorite IPA

      Didn’t get a chance to check that place out in Cleveland, but I’ll see if they have them at the local bodega

      if you ever make it back there, you have to go, seriously. See if you can find some Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, they are out of Michigan, also extremely good

    Can I make a suggestion, not related to this game? Okay. What if at the beginning of the month or the week you guys put up a calendar of any live radio shows scheduled for that month/week? I think people would like that so they could have more time to plan to attend.

    Just my opinion, but Baker and Dean Jr. are terrible. Terrible. How did Baker ever get started in this business? Somebody’s nephew?

    • Drew Franklin

    Cal has some work to do to get these guys play some defense. Tonight has been borderline pathetic. They are scoring every trip this second half.

  76. Guys, when Pat Dye was at Auburn, he said a coach can only get a team up for about 4 games a year. Don’t worry about this margin of victory.
