    If this team could just get over the hump of the mental lapses and just dumb mistakes. A big if, I know.

    They had a pretty good 2nd half.

    That was one of the better games they have played all year. They put together 2 pretty decent halves of basketball tonight for the first time in a while.

    Seemed like they had good effort in this one for the most part. Important win

    Good win, good improvement. I still think it could get really ugly Saturday. However I am seeing enough strides still, that I am very confident in their chances of making a run come March.

    Was good to get a solid, double digit win. Overall, I thought the Cats looked better and they needed a good win.
    After a lackluster 1st half I thought the Cats came out and played pretty well in the 2nd half. Defensive rebounding has to improve. One can tell that was addressed at the half bc the rebounding looked a lot better in the 2nd. Knox looked good offensively, 19pts. but I really think that kid is scared to go after a rebound, he has to get tougher. Washington had a really good game scoring 22.
    I thought that they looked really good in the zone defense tonight. Passing the ball continues to be a problem. What these guys need is to play more consistent and I think that will improve game by game.
    WVU in Morgantown is up on Sat., and if these Cats think that SC pushed them around and was physical .... WVU will beat you while beating you up. Pressing constantly, UK will have to take care of the ball / cut down t/o's and go to the boards like their hair is on fire.

    Is Vanderbilt really a top 15 pick as of right now?

    You wouldn't think, though I don't value much into the mocks beyond the first few picks until after the season. All dependent upon who else is in the draft.

    Guess they like his potential but he is an atrocious shooter.

    Loved that SGA-Diallo-Vanderbilt-Knox-Gabriel line-up that opened up the lead in the second half.

    I've been thinking the same thing about many UK players projected to go in round 1. But then I remember Skal Labissiere (sp) and how he got drafted high after a very unimpressive freshman season. I guess the NBA sometimes drafts on potential vs. performance.

    I’m trying to find his one NBA keeps him on a roster talent (energy?) Hopefully, we all see it soon, that would only benefit UK. Is he Terrance Jones 2.0 without the offense right now?

    Skal was a Euro kid being asked to play physical college ball as a number 5, was never gonna work. The spacing in the NBA has given him a career, he has a good jumper.

    He's very Ben Simmons to me. Makes really good decisions and always seems to be near a loose ball. Just not as assertive or aggressive offensively as Simmons could be at LSU.
