Being 38-0 is damn impressive regardless of the schedule... but I'm revisiting their wins... 1) Destroyed Kansas (though we later found out that KU was pretty mediocre) 2) Defeated Texas (who wasn't any good) 3) Beat UNC (Quality win, so did we) 4) Beat Louisville (Quality win, but probably not #4 quality) 5) Beat Arkansas Twice (Solid Wins) 6) NCAA wins over West Virginia and a very good Notre Dame Team Just looking at that tells me that they got HUGE credit for beating Kansas/Texas/Louisville when they were ranked really highly, even though those teams ended up being revealed us much weaker as the season went along Contrast that with our wins: 1) Beat MSU twice 2) Beat Arizona/UNC 3) Beat Georgetown/Oklahoma/UAB (UAB/UCLA wins should wash) 4) Road beatdowns of Iowa/OSU Then factor in that the Big Ten (despite being down) was a much stronger league than the SEC, and I think you could make the argument that Kentucky's record might be somewhat reflective of a pretty soft schedule (especially after January 1)
TIGERPAWSSC WROTE: ------------------------- I've watched a lot of UK hoops this year, and they become vulnerable when not getting their customary 12-15 free points off of turnovers and uncontested layups. Their defense compensates for what I believe is a mediocre offense. Their offensive efficiency numbers are bolstered by baskets directly attributable to defense, and is not a reflection of their ability to score when forced to do so against an actual, set defense. Of course, that's part of what makes them great. They have the ability to hit you for 8 or 9 extremely easy baskets because they get so many steals/blocks headed the other way. But some teams - Georgia and Notre Dame come to mind - have been able to protect the basketball. This has given UK a lot of trouble because UK tends to fall in love with the long mid-range jumper. At times, their offense has a very NBA look in design, but not in talent. If they didn't have those 6-8 minute spurts where guys like Aaron Harrison were taking 18-footers, they'd blow everyone out. Alas, Calipari has convinced each player that he is the team's best player, so they sometimes go away from Karl Towns for long stretches, inexplicably. UK won't admit this, but Wisconsin has the precise approach to beat them. Slow it down, don't turn it over, don't get your shots blocked, and make UK score over a set defense. Bait them into shots that look open, but aren't good shots. They absolutely adore the early shot clock mid-range shot. Whether UW executes against length is the question. I think the biggest factor in this game is whether Koenig can bust out of this funk he's in, and actually get the offense moving against a tough D. The craziest thing about your impressive run of offensive performances in the tournament is that we've done it with only so-so point guard play.Excellent post. Shot making is number one imo..We have the number one offense for a reason. If we play up to that..I think we may shock a few people. The nice thing about playing good teams heading into this game is that we are up to speed. It is obvious that Kentucky's strength is defense. I think they will try to pressure us into being a jump shooting team hoping their length will make the difference. I think we need to continue to do what got us here. feed the post, pass out it. Take good shots! It sounds boring but it is the formula.
LEAFEON WROTE: ------------------------- For whatever it's worth, probably not much. Larry told me Kelly is the next to go and Will, Rodney, and Carolyn make the final 3. He also told me Max was going to look like a fool before his boot episode aired. lol @ using the highly speculated guess Kelly is the merge boot as basis for your "insider" info.
