    How about UK Hoops knocking off the #3 team in the country on senior night!

      And the 2 Seniors crushed it on Senior Night. Epps with the game winner! Always good to go out on a high note like that. I hope they make a nice run in the NCAA tournament.

      I was there and it was awesome. Epps played pretty blah in the first half. At some point either in the first or second quarter she flung her headband off and I knew it was about to be all business! She came out on fire in the 3rd quarter!

      Epps and Akhator were both huge for us this season. Epps is a straight baller, and I still can’t believe Akhator transferred here from UConn.

    • It reminds me of the Boogie putback against MSU.

      Evelyn transferred from a community college, not UConn. I always thought there was someone on last years’ team who transferred from UConn but I’m not sure if I was just confused or what. Seems like maybe Batouly Camara turned down UConn to go here so that’s prob what I was getting confused. Of course she transferred there this summer is the mass exodus.



    • RealCatsFan

      I think we had a player that left UK for UConn, so maybe that is what is causing the confusion.

      Either way, she’s really good.

      Scoop will pick Fox as player of the game and a UK win.

    You can’t count on anything this year…last night Ohio State hit a bunch of 3’s and went up on Wisconsin by 20 and coasted to the win…was I upset….nope.
    Ohio State was 15-13 and 5-10 going in…just shows it happens to everybody.

    If you run into one of those games when the other guys hit a bunch of 3s you are losing – except U of L somehow managed to escape Va Tech (I think that’s who it was) last weekend.

    I tend to agree with Drew. I just don’t see a scenario where we beat Florida tomorrow by the way we have played the past 10 games or so.



    • RealCatsFan
      10:25 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      I agree – we will get killed if we put in the kind of effort we showed in the last game. But one thing I have seen, with the exception of the game at Florida – this team has a tendency to play up or down to the level of the competition. Hopefully they will have a little extra fire in their gut and will be ready to play tomorrow. Otherwise, I plan on using the extra anger-induced adrenaline to help me tear out some flooring in my house!



    • Laker Cat 18

      For the sake of my mental stability heading into the tournament, I hope we’re both wrong.



    • J-Dub421
      10:28 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      We played very well in our last revenge game against Tennessee though. I think our guys will be very motivated.

    • J- Dub, what happened to your Gravatar?



    • CatFanDu
      10:36 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      It’s just been a frustrating season, but I too had noticed the playing up/down to the competition level and hope that tomorrow is an UP!

      I can see the Gravatar today. Bizarre.
      We are beating the Gators af Rupp. I really cannot accept alternate outcomes.
      Hope my optimism isn’t misplaced.

    I think Briscoe and Hawkins will rise to the challenge and we’ll win a close one tomorrow. But I’d rather have Fox healthy.

      Yes, that too. 🙂

    Not really a huge women’s basketball fan, but that senior night deal sounds pretty special. Those ladies that stuck it out will have a life long memory of last night.

    How do know to expect an untruth?
    When someone says either “I’ll be honest with you” or “I’m not going to lie”.

    That said, I think the summer without Matt will be a trip…

    Uh, this isn’t our first game without Fox. Does anyone remember the starting line up when he was sick?



    • Realme

      Briscoe was at point, but I don’t remember the rest.



    • Booby Petrino
      10:54 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      I’m not 100% sure but was thinking Humphries actually started. So Briscoe, Monk, Bam, Gabriel, and Humphries maybe??



    • Realme
      11:08 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      I bet he stays 3 guard tomorrow and starts Dom.



    • Booby Petrino

      Hopefully. Definitely don’t see Humphries starting again at this point.

    Sorry to head in a slightly political direction, but Matt brought it up. Since we as a nation decided it was important to ensure regime change in Iraq because we THOUGHT they had weapons of mass destruction, when we KNOW that N Korea already has WMD’s and they are trying to develop nukes, but we do nothing about them. Does it have anything to do with the fact that there isn’t any oil in N Korea? 😉 Kim Jung Un is an absolutely unstable madman with the maturity level of a four year old. Very worrisome that he is in power of a country that could have nukes soon.



    • Laker Cat 18
      10:58 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      I look at North Korea like that little chihuahua that barks and nibbles at your heels. They can bark and try to bite every now and then. They’re stupid, but not that stupid.

      Russia, China, etc. Those are the ones you need to be concerned about. It’s all about bodies.

    • RCF makes a good point though Lakercat. You can’t underestimate what a kook is capable of, and most think that dude is pretty unstable.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:06 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      It would be nice if someone could slide in there and take him out (a’la “The Interview”). Preferably, I would like to see it be China or Russia, but they both probably LIKE the guy.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:10 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      We do nothing about NC because China still claims them as the embarrassing little step-child. We don’t want full-on confrontation with China.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:13 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      RealCats…or slide in and take him out ala what Un just had done to his brother last week!



    • RealCatsFan
      11:17 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      BP, have you watched “The Interview”? That is the plot of the movie. Seth Rogen is a journalist who is sent to interview Kim Jung Un, but instead it is revealed that the government wants him to assassinate him. I thought parts of it were pretty funny.



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:19 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      I think we can all agree Un is a very unstable leader. Agree with C&M. China is a toe you do not want to step on.



    • Booby Petrino
      11:27 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      RealCats…I’m not really a movie watcher. Basically have to be forced to do so. So that went over my head. My bad!



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:39 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      The Interview movie was pulled from theaters after threats by North Korea. It was then put on Netflix unusually early. On that note, I still haven’t seen it!



    • J-Dub421

      Sounds like someone else we know, except we HAVE nukes….

    When was the last time that we absolutely pummeled Florida? Was it 2012? I miss those days! I was hoping that when Donovan left that blowouts of Florida would become a regular thing, but it appears that they may have struck gold with Mike White. Very annoying.



    • Laker Cat 18

    • J-Dub421
      11:29 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      Yes, White has done much better than I thought he would at Florida. It is nice to have at least one other team be consistently good in the SEC though, since most of the conference is hot garbage.

    My theory is that Richard Simmons got really fat and is embarrassed to let anyone see him.



    • RealCatsFan
      11:11 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      Apparently the internet thinks he became a woman.

      I used to think Matt Walsh resembled Richard Simmons back in the day with his frizzy do and the headband. I guess that’s where the “Walsh is gay” chants originated from.

      I recall a radio disc jockey (can’t recall who) giving a hilarious account of interviewing RS. He was wearing shorts, and the whole time, Richard kept reaching under the table and plucking his leg hairs.

      It’s sad if he doesn’t have someone in his life that would have reported him missing to the police years ago if he really hasn’t been seen in that long. Hopefully he’s okay.

    Tomorrow Gabrielle has to do something besides shoot the three , Yeah take the shot when your open he shoots it pretty good but he has got to play some defense and get some rebounds.I’m kind of like the guy on Tom Leach show you can’t score 20 one game and then do nothing the next game. Can’t wait for the game should be a good one.

    The 1-seeds look to be Gonzaga, Villanova, North Carolina, Kansas.

    Only 1 of the Arizona, UCLA, Oregon trio will make it out of the conference tourney. However, I think 2 of those three get 2-seeds. I think Kentucky gets one of them if we win out. I also think Duke OR Louisville will get the other one.

    The rest is up for grabs. We must win out to get a 2-seed though. I would love a 2-seed with Gonzaga or Villanova.



    • secrick

      Is Gonzaga that good?



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:37 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      No, but they’ll be a 1-seed. They beat a terrible San Diego team by almost 60 last night. Their schedule is embarrassing.



    • secrick
      11:39 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      If one of those four happen to win i sure hope it is Gonzaga.



    • J-Dub421
      11:39 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      No, but they play in a weak conference where no one can beat them and are undefeated. Gonzaga also played Arizona and won, but that was early in the season when Arizona’s best player was out injured.



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:43 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      If there is ever a year where Gonzaga has a chance to go all the way, it’s this year.



    • Laker Cat 18
      11:44 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      To be fair, how good of a win is Arizona? They have 1 win of substance against UCLA. They haven’t beaten anyone else this year worth anything.



    • J-Dub421
      11:59 am February 24, 2017 Permalink

      True. I’ve long had zero respect for any team west of the Mississippi, with the exception of Kansas. The west is weak. Pretty much all good teams are in the east.

    Watched ‘Bama vGeorgia last night. Typically don’t watch SEC games we’re not in….but that was a good one…best game of the night.
    Once again, Frazier was great…really like that kid; 28 points.
    In case you’re wondering, the officiating was horrible as usual.
