Kentucky falls out of the CBS Top 25 And 1

Kentucky falls out of the CBS Top 25 And 1

But don’t make the mistake of counting UK out in December. At the beginning of the season, the Kentucky Wildcats were ranked No. 1 or 2 in most preseason polls. This was largely due to the fact that the Wildcats enrolled a recruiting class that featured four five-star prospects to go along with four experienced players in Nick Richards, Quade Green, PJ Washington and Reid Travis, all of whom were former five-star prospects. Everything looked good on pape. UK had a good roster that was balanced, good shooters, and good defense as well. That has historically been a great sign for teams...

John Calipari recaps Kentucky vs. Seton Hall, says team improving

“We’re a better team than we were two weeks ago.” It was a game of runs and big shots as Kentucky fell 84-83 to Seton Hall in overtime on Saturday afternoon inside of historic Madison Square Garden. The biggest shot of all proved to be a late three-pointer by Seton Hall’s Myles Cale with 9.9 seconds remaining that lifted the Pirates to an upset victory over the ninth-ranked Wildcats. The Cats had one final chance at the buzzer as Keldon Johnson’s desperation shot fell short as UK now falls to 7-2 on the season. Tied at 67 with 49.5 seconds left in regulation, each team tried to...

John Calipari explains not calling timeout on final play vs. Seton Hall

This was a brutal blunder by UK. Well, that was not an ideal start to the weekend. The Kentucky Wildcats fell to the Seton Hall Pirates 84-83 in overtime at Madison Square Garden. Like most of you, on the final play I sat there wondering, “Why in the world did Calipari not call timeout?” The Cats had two timeouts with less than 10 seconds left after Seton Hall hit a three-pointer to take the lead 84-83.

The wildest game of the college hoops season thus far. It was a game unlike any other the No. 9 Kentucky has played so far this season. Defense was at a premium and offense was hard to find in the Cats for most of the afternoon in the Big Apple. Then chaos ensued Miles Powell hit a wild three to give Seton Hall a three-point advantage with a second and a half on the clock. Then the unthinkable...

Kentucky got more than they bargained for as the Cats fell in overtime 84-83. The game started out to a feverish pace with both teams trading buckets.

The pace of the game slowed with UK going scoreless for a 4 minute stretch and the...

Jemarl Baker makes UK debut vs. Seton Hall

The Wildcat has finally got onto the court. Jemarl Baker has made his Kentucky Wildcats debut. It came in the Wildcats’ matchup with the Seton Hall Pirates in Madison Square Garden. With just over a minute left in the half and several UK guards in foul trouble, Baker checked in for the first time in any type of competitive collegiate game. He did not attempt a shot. Baker has been sitting out since the Blue-White Game after swelling in his knee emerged. He missed all of his freshman season while recovering from knee surgery. He has been in and out of practice since then, but he must...

Reid Travis has been Kentucky’s best player

Through eight games — and to the surprise of pretty much nobody — grad transfer Reid Travis has been Kentucky’s most consistent and overall best player so far. It’s easy to say with a kid in his fifth year of college basketball, but Reid Travis’ level headedness stuck out like a bright light after Kentucky was hammered by Duke in Indianapolis. “I think as we go back and watch the film and get better ... I love our group of guys,” Travis said after the loss in the media room full of cameras and reporters. “I think everyone was hurt and I think when we watch the film, we’ll...

AP voter says Seton Hall can beat “overrated” Kentucky

He actually had a recent hot take about UK that turned out to be accurate. Can the Seton Hall Pirates beat the Kentucky Wildcats? It’s a fair question. The Cats haven’t looked overly impressive so far this season and it’s basically a home game for Seton Hall. Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press lays out three reasons why the Pirates can knock off the Wildcats, and he doesn’t think it’s a longshot. He says UK has been on Seton Hall’s mind for a long time. “We’ve been waiting for this since day one — as soon as we saw our schedule and saw Kentucky,” sophomore forward...
