The battle of the Wildcats didn’t look like much in the first half as Kansas State led at halftime 33-29. To say the first half of this Sweet 16 match up was ugly, was a complete understatement. These Wildcats combined for 26 fouls as the men in the striped suits seem bent on controlling the game instead of letting both teams play a little. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit 11-of 12 free throws in the half, if that tells you how ugly this was. No rhythm at all. Continue reading A Mess in Atlanta, UK cannot take easy road provided to them
Though TV audiences may have had issues with the March 15 – 18 action in Taco Bell Arena, it was all good from the floor as the Kentucky Wildcats advanced through the first and second rounds of the South Region by defeating the Davidson Wildcats 78 – 73 and the Buffalo Bulls 95 – 75. Continue reading How the Cats made it to “Catlanta” by Martin Hackworth
For all the “Whining” coming out of UK’s camp, the Young Wildcats continue to win. I have stated all season that when March rolled around, no one would want to play these Wildcats. It’s just the way it is around Big Blue Nation. It is what we have become accustomed to. Calipari, more often than not, has his young players ready for the NCAA Tournament. Since “Cal” took over at UK, the Cats, when they make the NCAA Tournament, average 3 wins. That equates to 7 Sweet 16 trips in 9 years in the Calipari era. Unprecedented among any other school in the Nation. Continue reading Who is Whining? The Wildcats will play in the South Regional semifinal on Thursday in Atlanta.

In a game that went down to the wire, an overmatched Davidson Wildcat team was defeated by the Kentucky Wildcats by a score of 78 to 73. Kentucky, behind Kevin Knox’s 25 points, led by double digits several times during the course of the game, but turnovers and sloppy play caused the game tighten to as little as three in the waning minutes. In the final two minutes tenacious defense and good free throw shooting sealed the victory. We asked Coach Cal after the game how he’d rate his team’s defensive effort and he responded with good in the first half and not good in the second. Coach Cal seemed surprised to learn that the 3 point shooting streak had ended.

The Missouri Tigers came to Rupp Arena trying to beat the Wildcats for the second time this year. The Cats were playing to guarantee their spot in the NCAA Tournament and perhaps get a couple byes for the SEC Tournament. Both teams came out of the locker rooms ready to play. It was a great defensive effort early in the game for both teams, but the Wildcats were too hot to be held. Continue reading Kentucky defeats Missouri; Jared Vanderbilt Impresses, by Michael Willis
