What really worries me is that this is a young team that has no killer instinct. Cal even said as much last night after the game. Once they get up by 15 or so, they start to coast and that is when teams make runs that get them back into the game. By all rights Kentucky should have won by about 20 last night.
I'm worried that every game before they play Tennessee is going to be a trap game.
Yes guys please lets not turn this into another Calipari sucks thread.
Discuss basketball and let things play out.

One noticeable thing about John last night was his lack of cramping, first time this season that he's had no issues in that regard in a physical, tough game. Good to see.
When it didn't matter? We didn't win by much.... Wall was drawing the defense in which helped his teammates. Bledsoe tore it up though, sure.
Do you think Wall played poorly.... or poorly for John Wall standards?

I also thought Florida played pretty well in transition... very good outlet passes
Just how much fun are you guys having watching these kids play ball? This season, to this point, has been an absolute joy to watch and cheer on.
