Kentucky 74 Vanderbilt 67

Page 2 of Final another road win for the young Cats. Looked tougher down the stretch today than against A&M. Except for last :30 seconds that was terrible.... 56 comments | 1463 Views | Go to page 1 →

    This team is going to have to learn to play zone unless Vanderbilt can help some in the man. If he is as lacking in the man-to-man as some of these others are they won't beat many good offensive teams. I guess there is still time to get better on defense but boy do they give up a lot of easy layups.

    I would love to know what Vanderbilt's deal is. I sense that many fans are already done with him. Hopefully he can come back and contribute.

    Sounds like Cal has just about had it with him too.

    I’d like to see Cal incorporate Wenyen and SKJ into the starting lineup. I think they are giving this team more than some of the starters right now.

    I’m confused? Do we think he has some sort of problem besides the injury?

    I'm not going to give my take on it but it's disappointing. The NCAA Tournament tips off in 8 weeks. If he can play, he needs to play. If not, then make an announcement and move on.

    I think he said he is going to play and Cal said he wanted his first game to be a home game. So hopefully, next weekend.

    I don't understand that either. Either a player is hurt and can't go or he's healthy and can play. I don't care if they are playing on the moon. If he can go, he needs to be on the court.

    Cal has said for a few weeks that it's up to him when/if he plays...but there seems to be some writing between the lines that isn't in focus yet.

    Could it simply be that he just isn’t in playing shape yet? It seems to me that some of you might be suggesting he’s not playing because he’s going to head to the draft.

    Cal's comments today and over the last few dates seem to indicate that Vanderbilt is physically ready to play, but he has yet to clear the mental hurdle.

    They have said numerous times that he's physically ready to play. He practices and works out like everyone else. I guess games are just too strenuous.
