Lexington, KY – In a pre-Thanksgiving night game, I’m not sure you should expect much.  The students were gone for the long weekend.  The band and dance team decided to take the night off and then there was the game.  A strange one indeed.  The first half of the Kentucky-Fort Wayne game in particular was truly strange.  You had Fort Wayne forward Xzavier Taylor faking a flop when he ran into Coach John Calipari on the sideline.  Yes, you read that correctly, he faked being fouled by Calipari while out-of-bounds.  Although that one didn’t count, it was one of the many flops the Fort Wayne players used to draw fouls on this young Kentucky team.

Lexington, KY – If you thought any game this season was going be easy for this young Kentucky basketball team, you were seriously mistaken.  Kentucky threw the ball away on their first possession of the game and ETSU scored a 3-pointer on the other end.  That was the start of a long first half for the Wildcats.  The Buccaneers went up by as many as 10 points when Devontavius Payne made a 3-pointer for ETSU to give them an 18-8 lead.   Continue reading UK Basketball – Cats are Fowl from the Foul Line in 78-61 win over East Tennessee State

By Ricky Blair – Lexington, KY – The Kentucky Wildcats hang on for a 73-69 win over Vermont in a hard fought game at Rupp Arena.  The Vermont Catamounts were not your typical early season patsy game.  This veteran squad was 29-6 last season with a 16-0 record in the American East Conference on their way to an NCAA tournament bid.  The Catamounts had not lost a regular season game since last December.  Vermont also had six senior members, while the young Wildcats are without a senior on this year’s team.

By Ricky Blair
Lexington, KY – The exhibition contest against Morehead State University tonight, which Kentucky won 92-67 was more about charity and giving than it was about a win and loss.  The proceeds from tonight’s game went to Team Rubicon a non-government organization that is helping with emergency response teams in Florida that are currently working with victims of the recent hurricanes that hit Florida and Puerto Rico.  They will also soon be helping victims in California after the recent forest fires.
