Villanova Wins! I don't know why I kept watching after it was a blowout, but I'm glad I did. That was crazy.
That was an incredible game. Glad I stayed up to watch it as well. Grant was very impressive late, I think if he stays all 4 years he could end up being quite the player. Not nearly as fun to watch as Fisher, but he's just a solid point and a fantastic shooter as welll. Good to see the intensity exhibited in the game, I think this win is going to have a big impact on a young team through the season and really give them some confidence. They had to grind it out in this one.
As an aside Randolph looked very good. 'Nova obviously struggles around the basket with athletic frontcourt players which is why he blocked so many shots, but he had a pretty nice stroke and showed good athleticism. Him leaving the game really crippled LSU.
It's really a shame how Kentucky has fallen from elite national powerhouse to a borderline top 25 team.
If we can nab a good big man for 2008, we'll have a very good squad next year. Also, word is that Legion wants to return and has recieved permission from Barnhardt, but just needs Gillespie's permission. But knowing Gillespie, I dont know if he'll do that.
I'm freaked out about Gordon. I'm fairly confident that Patterson can take White. You guys will win however, because with injuries and the whole Legion situation, our depth is next to nothing. Our starting lineup should look like:
SG Porter (Who is worthless)
Our bench is so absolutely thin at the moment, here's what it is: AJ Stewart, Mark Coury, Ramon Harris, Jared Carter and Mike Williams
This is one of the most pitiful displays of basketball i've in my entire life, coming from Kentucky no less. With Jasper and Meeks out now, none of these players besides Patterson deserves to be playing at UK. Crawford and Bradley are selfish, always have been selfish, and will continue to be selfish. I wouldn't be as angry as I am at the moment, if they were actually good however. Mark Coury and Michael Porter have no place playing division one basketball. I know for Coury he was a walk-on, but get his ass out of game. Did anyone see him shoot a three off of the bottom of the backboard? That was just pitiful. I don't know what it is about Porter, perhaps the five turnovers, maybe the fact that he is a complete non-factor on offense, or when he actually air balled an open layup. I'm also just angry that Tubby Smith's lazy ass left us with this pitful excuse of a basketball team, because he probably decided that recruiting for us was just too god damn time consuming. Then he goes to Minnesota and recruits there a hell of a lot better than he did the past few years at UK. He actually walks away looking like the victim with his signing bonus worth millions, and left Kentucky in shambles.
