ESPN Thinks Kentucky Can Evolve into A Scary Team

In Myron Medcalf’s ‘The Floor is Yours’ segment on ESPN today, he gets asked if Kentucky can evolve into one of the scariest teams in the NCAA Tournament and win the SEC. His answer is one that we’ve heard all year. Yes and maybe.

As we saw on Saturday, if that Kentucky team shows up, or the one that played at Kansas or the one that dominated Duke, they can beat anyone in the country. Hell, they almost beat the No. 2 team in the country on the road. But, if the Auburn game team shows up, this team can lose to the likes of a Stony Brook in the Round of 64.

Medcalf does believe this team will eventually look more like the team that showed up against South Carolina because Kentucky has ‘the best pure point guard in America’ in Tyler Ulis and a born scorer in Jamal Murray. I like that title for Ulis.

    The emergence of Willis over the past couple of weeks has really made UK a much better team. It’s still the Ulis/Murray show, but for about a month there, this team was brutal to watch on offense ’cause absolutely no one else was doing anything on offense. Just need players like Poythress and maybe Hawkins to put up some points and they’ll be a solid team when it matters in March.

      Yes, coach Cal and the homers can think me for the insight that turned the team around (letting Willis play). Funny how I don’t hear anything abut his defense anymore? Now if they really want improve….sit Briscoe! Why on earth do we need a 3rd guard that can’t shoot? He will have games to make you think he’s improved but then will be the downfall of our season when it counts!

      “Cal can thank me for my insight that turned the team around”

      Where do these idiots come from?

      Though rated #1, this team is not the traditional great defensive team that creates turnovers from a hard nose, full court man x man defense (yes, like the Cards). The pressing/traps have resulted in very few turnovers this year.

      Cats paw is nearly perfect on everything he ever predicts (both football and basketball) and continuously makes you look stupid!

      The question needs to be asked…..why did the potential best forward of all time only rank #5 in shots per game for Kentucky? Much like Dean Smith was the only man who could keep Jordan under 20 points a game, any big man is limited to garbage dunks in the dribble drive offense.

      So when UK blows out all the top 20 teams but narrowly escapes pitiful SEC teams, isnt this all on Cals poor coaching?

      I would argue its a team of freakish athletes with NO shooters. The one great shooter they had was ran off. Wiltjer

      lmao…. this while homer fanbase talks about how corrupt the entire Louisville program is, especially the coaching staffs. But once we hire one–whoa- we got a one good one!! lmao. if we had hired Petrino in the first place we wouldnt be begging to be relevant.

      I’m basing it on the fact that you say Wiltjer can’t play defense because of his skin color while I think he is more fundamentally sound and smarter than most other players.

      Feel free to shoot the messenger!! This program blew its chance to ever be relevant when it passed on Petrino.

      These fans will NEVER revolt. UK has totally sucked for 25 yrs and they are still here every year talking about going to a bowl game. Just give Stoops another million or so and he will lead you to the promise land! Meanwhile….the school up the road everyone makes fun of has hired a coach that actually has them in a bowl every year.

    We’re a jump shooting team. As a jump shooting team, you’ll have off games. This team will go as far as their defense and rebounding will take them.
