Matt Jones goes 1-for-2 at the stripe

Coach Cal told Matt Jones he wouldn’t score in his team’s first round game in Rupp Arena this morning. Matt proved Cal wrong, tallying one point in the game.

The bank was open for business.

    I am thinking Coach needs to stick to recruiting and leave the scouting to those that know. He sure did blow that scouting report.

    Love the slow motion replay of the miss. Matt, you are suppose to use your legs when shooting free throws…you looked like you had a case of constipation shooting those.

    Which was a worse shot? The bank he didn’t call or the air ball? It is close.

    please tell me he threw the 3 goggles at Cal when he made it

    Who was the old man that looked like he was grabbing himself in the video when matt shot the second free throw?

    Wow. This video needs to be marketed to different AAU camps across the country. The message would be, if you don’t learn to shoot free throws then this will be you in five years. Those were some of the funniest looking shots I’ve seen since Anthony Mason used to shoot one handed free throws back in the day.

    Someone never watched the YouTubeSports video of how to shoot a free throw.

    Is WCS responsible for teaching the campers how to shoot free throws?

    I think the bank shot FT is much worse. Who bank shots FTs? Incredibly horrible basketball players

    Nothing says shooting touch like a banked free throw following by an airball

    I thought his form looked great. 50% from the line is outstanding.

    I don’t know which was worse BaBa Booby’s pitch to home plate or Matt’s free throw?



  19. How can someone be so bad?
    2:34 pm September 9, 2013 Permalink

    Wow he is… TERRIBLE. Surely he has picked up a basketball in his years of covering Kentucky basketball. Right? This is a pathetic display Matt Jones. Work on your game.

    @ Joe Knows: Not in this video. Looks more like duck season, I think someone shot that second one out of the air.

    Matt Jones shooting free throws in “the most ridiculous manner possible”.

    Josh Harrellson deserves a picture of Matt Jones crouched at the line, ready to shoot a free throw.

    Matt you didn’t look bad buddy. Bend them knees a little and flip that wrist a little more and you got it!

    Worst thing I’ve ever seen since the battery powered battery charger, batteries not included.

    Matt needs new socks! He’s bringing the old man black shoes and socks!

    If that is the best shot we have in this battle, then we unanimously oppose going into that battle.

    Poor Matt…. your mother must be so ashamed. Is there anywhere she can go to hide out for a couple of weeks, or until all this blows over?

    We need a “One Shining Moment” of Matt’s play…well, wait. There needs to be at least one shining moment for that, huh? Nevermind!

    WTF man, he banked in the first one, then basically airballed the second… uuuuuh.

    This is why I didn’t stop in Kentucky to play my customary pick basketball game while campaigning. Democrats and Republicans can agree that Matt Jones is a terrible basketball player.

    I particularly liked the exuberant hand slap, like he had just dunked on someone instead of banking in a uncontested free throw in a silent gym. Very nice.

    Matt’s almost as cold as a grave digger’s @$$ at the line.

    Think might need to watch the instructional video—-How To Shoot Foul Shots by Kige Ramsey.

    Matt was a good teammate. Played within himself. Which was a small circle. But he did that, running the floor, rebounding, guarding a bit and mostly not shooting.
    Which a lot of the times meant getting the ball to Jason Taylor.
    I tried to do that too.

    Wow i can’t figure out how someone who watches so much basketball can look so bad.I mean can he dribble?Really not trying to be mean the man is doing more with his life than i am just boggles the mind a little is all.

    I think Cal should make you pay that $500 as well after that second shot! Opposite ends of the spectrum. One is way to hard and slams against the backboard. The other is way to short and may have/may not have clipped the front of the rim!
