North Carolina 75 Kentucky 73

Page 5 of Final. What an ending. But not a good time to have a bad game. Can't go almost 5 minutes and not score when you were up 5.... 458 comments | 15795 Views | Go to page 1 →

If they foul internationally and he makes both then it goes down as a horrible decision.
    Different strokes. It was a one and one situation. I take my chances

    I think he saw they had numbers and could get to the rim

    He hit a bunch of them already in the game and in the previous game. That shot is his bread and butter.

    Considering he made an even more pressured packed shot to win the game. I think the chances of him making free throws are good.

    If being a defensive liability was a crime, Willis would be a persistent felon.

    What I like about Coach Cal and the Cats is that they seem to really care and where that UK jersey with pride! If you watched Lonzo Ball the other night when they lost it was like he didn't care and I thought he played that way also. Even though it's one year and they are about to make millions you could see Bam, Monk, and Fox were giving everything they had.

    It is unfortunate that lack of defense from the 4 spot is what ended up killing UK, imo. Most people knew that UK was solid 4 away from being the best team in the country.

    Now the fun part comes, who stays and who goes. Who hires an agent and who doesn't, and for the love of God can we get Mohammed Bamba here next season!!!!

    You see a guy driving 99 percent of defenders in that situation will help out like Willis did. Briscoe should have rotated over in that situation. At the end of the day once that guy started driving it allowed all the other things to play out. It sucks.

    I hate to rag on him about that because he tried hard. He just wasn't good at it. Was always out of position.

    I think mostly everyone knows who is leaving. The only question mark is if Briscoe is dumb and tries to leave. Other than that the seniors are obviously gone as well as Fox, Monk, and Bam.

    Agreed on them caring. People like to say these guys don't care but they do. It make take awhile but coach Cal gets these guys to buy in to the UK family.

    They definitely care and I have always thought that is awesome.

    I don't presume to speak for 74, but for many, the team that beats UK is "your team".
