UK Basketball – BREAKING – Washington to Declare for 2018 NBA Draft; Eligible to Return

Freshman forward from Dallas will not hire an agent

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky men’s basketball freshman forward PJ Washington announced Tuesday that he plans to submit his name for the 2018 NBA Draft but will not hire an agent. So long as Washington does not hire an agent, he will have until May 30 (10 days after the NBA Draft Combine) to make a final decision as to whether he wishes to remain in the draft or return to Kentucky.

A Mess in Atlanta, UK cannot take easy road provided to them

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

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.

UK will now face Buffalo who upset the Arizona Wildcats. A when here puts UK in Atlanta for a possible matchup with overall #1 Virginia.

St. Louis, MO – Kentucky came out with an aggressive energy in their 62-49 win over the Georgia Bulldogs in the quarter final round of the SEC tournament today. It was the defense for the Wildcats
that led to the victory. The Cats held Georgia to 28 percent shooting from the field in the game and they put a clamp on Bulldogs all-SEC first team player Yante Maten, who only scored 9 points and was 2 for 10 from the field.
