    Im Not to worried. This was the first game of the tournament for our team. 2011 it took a last second layup to win their first round game. They got the first one out of the way. I would rather them play bad today and get it out of the way.

    UK fans join NKU fan base in giving standing O to the Norse coming off the court.

    Is it just me or has the officiating changed in the tourney versus the season? It appears to me that both sides got away with a lot and the same seems true in the other games.

    Monk takes a pull up 3 under one second at the finish and misses again.

    Per Ben Roberts, Kentucky kids accounted for 62 of NKU's 70 points: Holland 22, Williams 21, McDonald 14, Faulkner 3.

    You keep thinking they were better at the beginning of the year, and you will be wrong. This team is better in every area from the beginning of the year. Monk scored 47 points and it still took a last second shot to win that day. If Monk puts up 47 now on someone it wouldn't even be close no matter who they are playing.
    Keep telling yourself that.

    I was wondering when was the last time in the tournament that all of the top 16 seeds won their first round games and all by an average of 14+ points?

    SEC is 4-1 after the first round with Vandy's gift to Northwestern as it's only loss.

    People are freaking out but I'm not. A win is a win. NKU should be a 15-seed but they are playing better than a 15-seed. The champions of the Horizon League are better than 15 seeds. Kentucky didn't play great but they won and that's really all that matters.

    Not a lot to say here other than I was far more impressed with NKU than I was U.K.. No effort, No Pride ....the Cats just showed up going through the motions.
    Should U.K. play like this vs. Wichita State on Sunday ...then at least it's a short drive back to Lexington from Indy bc WSU will embarrass U..K, if they play like this !
    Hopefully this one was a wake up call.

    Amen, you can add no heart! Lazy rebounding, lazy on defense, slowing down for half court game which I cannot understand.

    The difference in my opinion was UK having a center in shape.
