    Exactly, been saying that for about 3 weeks now.

    Props to Mr. Miller silencing alot of the haters after that tournament performance I would hope.

    How come nobody has commented on the huge difference in free throws yet?

    The last 3 games UK executed on both ends of the floor as well as any UK team in recent memory IMO. If they continue defending like they are, they will be a tough out in the NCAA. UK is shooting the basketball as well as anyone in the country right now.
    Where are all the naysayers that were ripping Cal yesterday? He was playing to win that game, and I can't blame him for not turning the keys of the game over to Polson, Hood, Vargas and whoever else. He didn't today either!

    Most of the time the more aggressive team gets to the free throw line. I thought UF settled for a lot of jump shots!

    Florida wasn't being as aggressive going to the basket as UK, and we played surprisingly good D around the rim. That's just what I attribute the difference to.

    Knight showed some serious swag after that breakaway dunk. Not something he's shown this season. Great game by the Cats! PUMPED FOR MARCH MADNESS!!!

    I guess because I had already talked about that in length with everyone throughout my household. Not sure what the final number were but with about 2 minutes left in the game UK had made over 20 free throws and was shooting over 80% from the line. Very impressive and hard to beat a team shooting that well from the charity stripe, especially when they're making that many trips there.

    Where would you have called the extra fouls on UK? And UF did start fouling with 2:00 left. (I realize it was a big difference even without that though)

    I agree, but I just wanted to get that out of the way because you know if the situation had been reversed there would be several posters on here crying about it.

    Ol Coach Cal I guess, is not too bad of a X and O's coach either. UK is playing their best when it starts to really count. Won't be the 10 loss year a lot of doubters were saying either.
