    UK is #18 in RPI and has the #1 SOS in the nation. Everyone can stop with the concern and speculation - they are in the tournament. Right now, UK has more wins versus the RPI top 50 than Duke, UC, Michigan State, Ohio State and Wichita State.

    Exactly! It seriuosly would take losing the rest of their games and probably 1st round exit to even be truly on the bubble.

    Kentucky is in. Had they lost today, they would have still been in but would have been inching towards the bubble. It would take a monumental collapse for them to be out at this point.

    They still have a chance to get a couple of quadrant 1 wins, which would help their seeding a little. Arkansas on the road would be a great start.

    Didn't watch the game, but will take your word for it. About time he showed up, him and Diallo have been MIA the last two months.

    Quade was easily UK’s best player. I can also appreciate how competitive he seems.

    Don't let facts get in the way.

    I’d argue Quade has been one of UK’s most consistent players all year, with the exception of the time around his injury. People that had grand expectations for him neglected to read up on what he was expected to be and just assumed he was an NBA ready talent.

    Diallo on the other hand, yuck. You can tell Cal is doing all he can to allow him to succeed to boost his confidence. Of their rotation, he is the worst player.

    Thank you. Outside of the few games back after his injury, hes been pretty solid for Kentucky all year.

    I suppose I fall into the category that expected more out of Quade. I suppose his injury affected him a bit, but I agree with the post that said he has been a no-show for the stretch of losses the Cats had. He played a very good game against Alabama.
    As for Diallo, his game is self explanatory. I like him better coming off the bench and for short times at that. He’s been a disappointment.

    Nku it would be one thing if you have simply said you expected more from Green this year. However you have said a few times that he is horrible and shouldn't be at UK and at best is a mid major player.

    Which is why I have said countless times UK fans have been spoiled with NBA ready guards, that we forget what a normal talented but maybe not nba ready players look like.

    He is going to be a key member this year and the next few years and will only get better. I absolutely love the confidence he has and the competitiveness he has. Those are the type of players that end up being very good college players.

    And we are talking about guarding one of the nation’s best PGs in Sexton. Green is not the greatest athlete, but he certainly embraced the challenge.
