    And amazingly Frank Haith is still a coach.

    Great game for Briscoe as well. He had l5 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. He has been shooting better of late. The true test will come Saturday to see if this Kentucky team has truly turned the corner.

    I think we have turned the corner but still have a ways to go. A loss @ Kansas I expect.

    I will repeat what RP posted in the update thread. Crowd cheered when Brisco made 2 FT's in a row. He ended up only missing one. Great improvement.

    One of the reasons for the turnaround of this team is the physical defense that the guards are playing. Makes it very difficult for teams to get into their offensive sets. Derek Willis play is making a lot of people come to terms with their talent evaluating ability.

    I fully expect a loss too, but as long as it's a competitive loss, and not a performance like we had against Ohio State, UCLA, Auburn or LSU and I'll be happy.

    Overall great game by all. I was afraid that these guys may be looking past an obviously bad team to this weekend at the "Phog" / Kansas. Was glad to see that wasn't the case as they came out focused and did what a good team is supposed to do in a game like this. .....went out, took control and made the statement "you can't play with us" early with a 20 pt. run after Mizzou got the first two. U.K. closed things from the opening tip and never allowed Mizzou to believe that they had a shot at an upset.
    Cats shoot 52 %, played excellent Defense and controlled the boards. Ulis with 20, I believe that makes it 3 strsight 20 pt. plus games for Ty, not sure. D. Willis again came to play and with 18 and 12, he certainly showed it. I love watching an in state kid excel wearing that "Kentucky" across their chest.
    I don't believe that this team is as good as they will be by regular seasons end but imo they are well on their way, really starting to "get it".
    Kansas at their place on Sat, in all honesty will probably be too much for a Cats win. Kansas imo has a very good shot at a final four and NC. Playing them in Allen Fieldhouse is to say the least a very tough task, few opponets win there. I am wanting to see our Cats go in there, play hard for 40 minutes, be competitive and if they stay close going in the last 6-8 minutes ..... who knows ?

    I'm not sure what caused it. But it seems like Briscoe isn't forcing as many shots. Not sure if it's because Ulis and Mirray are playing so well, Willis is spreading the floor or Briscoe is getting a better feel for the college game.

    My understanding was that Briscoe arrived at UK and REALLY hit the weight room hard. It may have been great for him long term but thrown him off a bit early on.

    Good teams are supposed to make bad teams look really bad and that's what happened last night. Nice to see the Cats completely dominate that game.

    Only thing you can complain about is they didn't score first lol jk.

    I love this quote from Willis after the game.

    Wednesday night, Calipari said that after the game he asked if Willis wanted to give any of the minutes he has taken from other players back?

    “Coach,” said Derek Willis, “I just want to win.”

    That was one of the best opening 5 minutes I've seen in 20 years.
