  • Notes from UK’s big win over Mizzou // Kyle Tucker – UK Beat

    "Basketball, if you think about it, this is just a game," he said. "When I think about it, it’s a game that I love and I cherish to play, but at the same time it’s not a death or anything if you don’t win. You’re not going to die. So when you think about it in those terms, just go out there and compete, and that’s what we did."

    Exactly right, Archie. You have to remember to have fun. When basketball isn’t fun, you aren’t going to play well.

  • No. 1 basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins to visit Kentucky // The Courier-Journal

    Three upcoming official visits over the next two weeks, including one beginning Tuesday to the University of Kentucky, will be key in the recruiting decision of the nation’s No. 1 basketball prospect, Andrew Wiggins, who could be ready to make his choice soon after their completion, his coach said.

    I expect Wiggins to decide in mid to late March, but that’s just a guess. He could wait longer, or he could go ahead and make the call.

    The kid’s good. I watched a game with him the other day, not an all-star game, just a game. He doesn’t dominate games like you would expect, but when he gets the ball, he is electric. And he does defend, although not exceptionally well.

  • Kentucky showing interest in Madison Central star Hawkins //

    UK assistant coach Orlando Antigua was in Richmond on Sunday to see Madison Central senior Dominique Hawkins.
    The 6-foot-1 Hawkins, who is considered one of the best players in the state, has been receiving interest from several high-major programs.
    Louisville, Alabama and Tennessee have all inquired about his recruitment in recent weeks. Purdue also called Sunday, according to Madison Central Coach Allen Feldhaus Jr.

  • Poll: Should Kentucky Retire Anthony Davis’s Jersey? //

    Unless you are going to retire them all, I don’t think so. Davis was a great player, but so was MKG, Doron Lamb, Terrence Jones, Darius Miller

    I guess that means a qualified "maybe…" What do you think?

  • Mizzou lets another one slip away : Sports

    Leaving a glaring void on its NCAA Tournament resume despite an inspired effort in a mesmerizing game, Mizzou fell to Kentucky 90-83 in overtime on Saturday at Rupp Arena.

    I guess it’s Mizzou’s turn to have a "glaring void," and unfortunately, it’s one they can’t fill. The best road win they have left is March 9th at Tennessee, and that is far, far from a sure thing, as UK found out the other day.

  • Notebook: Goodwin's second-half surge key to Kentucky's comeback -

    In 31 seconds, Archie Goodwin broke two curses.
    A curse that has haunted the Cats’ second-half starts all season. A curse that kept Goodwin from landing a 3-point shot in more than 10 games.

    That was a bad one, all right. I can’t remember a guard at UK ever having such a nasty drought from the arc. Goodwin’s shot mechanics are not great, but they aren’t broken either. I think it was purely a confidence problem.

    When Goodwin is a threat to score from outside, he is far more dangerous. If you push up on him, he is going by you. Teams have been laying off him, and that’s one reason why he has so many charges and turnovers. Not the only reason – he still had 7 turnovers Saturday – but it does make him so one-dimensional that he can only be effective taking it into the lane.

  • Believe it or not but with game on line Missouri guard asked Goodwin about quote in newspaper // vaughtsviews

    "He [Missouri point guard Phil Pressey] actually was asking me a question about a statement he said I made in the newspaper. I just had to explain it to him," said Goodwin.

    Heh. Well, I wonder if he liked the answer. Read the whole thing.
