After the loss to the Ex-Cons, this Nike commercial echoed through my mind. The lyrics to the song, “Everybody gets knocked down, how quick are you gonna get up?” I know it’s a big time bummer losing to the sea of orange to the south of us, but all is not lost. The greatest NBA team ever in my mind, the 1996 Chicago Bulls team, lost 10 games. I know in my heart I wanted a perfect undefeated season. That didn’t happen. What did I want more than an undefeated season? A National Championship……….
Kentucky falls 74-65 to the Tennessee Vol’s. Was there anything good that will come from this loss? The Cats played an absolute terrible basketball game, however had a chance to win it still with only 2 minutes left to play. I don’t think Kentucky ever got into a good offensive flow. They showed really good composure to settle down and make a run to tie the game with 2 minutes left, only to come up just short. Take away the 18-0 run in the first half by Tennessee, and we win this game in double digits. I’m glad the loss came today, and not late in March.

Brandon Knight said in a recent interview he is going to soon decide where he’ll end up in college. He had narrowed to the field down to Kentucky, Miami , Florida, Kansas, and UConn. From other interviews I’ve seen, I would say it is actually down to Kentucky and Kansas. I’m sure that coach Cal is doing everything he can to get this kid in a Wildcat uniform. Dick Vitale says “He is as close to John Wall as you can get”.

What is the key to a victory Thursday night against South Carolina? Stop Devon Downey! In Kentucky’s only loss this season, Downey led the Gamecocks over UK with 30 points. Obviousley, the game plan would be to contain Mr. Fabric Softner, however I think the most important thing for UK will the how they rebound. South Carolina out rebounded the Cats last game in that huge upset. So, the keys to the game are 1. Stop Devan Downey 2. Rebound ……..Go Big Blue
