VIDEO: Gilgeous-Alexander explains the final play

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ended up taking the final shot of the game, but only because the play that was drawn up in the huddle ran out of time.

What Went Wrong for Kentucky in the Final Minute

“We were looking for Wenyen at the top of the key. It was a double pick set at the free throw line, he was going to pop out and shoot it, but it took too long to develop,” Gilgeous-Alexander explained in the locker room after the loss.

Wenyen Gabriel said, “The timing didn’t work out and Shai had to shoot it… The timing was off.”

Neither Gabriel nor Gilgeous-Alexander could explain how it was thrown off, or what Kansas State did to disrupt the play. Gabriel said he’d have to see the film to get a clear picture of what actually went wrong.

    The final play had nothing to do with the Cats loss. Once again terrible FT shooting killed any chance of a win (especially Washington). 8 FOR 20??!! Don’t get me wrong. PJ played his ass off and had a great game. But more importantly, our leading scorer Shai Alexander also had 5 of our assist total of 6. 6 ASSISTS??!! Are you kidding me?? There was NO TEAM on the floor for Kentucky last night. That’s why we lost.
