    Haha, HR, wonder who you're talking about?

    Okay, let me ask this: What has to happen tomorrow for IU to win? Watford does a decent job of containing T. Jones for one...

    1. Pritchard, Elston, or Capobianco would have to play above their heads and get Kentucky's frontcourt into foul trouble. 2. Watford would have to play well and force Jones to expend a lot of energy guarding him. 3. Creek, Jones, and Hulls would all have to be hitting shots. 4.And they'd have to avoid turning the ball over.

    In order of likely happening, I'd put it 3,2,1,4

    I agree pretty much with HR. UK will have to really struggle and get into foul trouble.

    IU would really have to be raining in the 3 ball as well. Hulls would have to hit 8 or 9.

    They couldn't guard R. Jackson from BC and he didn't have much of an inside presence.

    I think UK will win by 20 or so.

    IU deserves to win this game!! UK players look like they'd rather be somewhere else.

    So Liggins pushes off then knocks Hulls back again and draws the foul but Oladipo drives and gets hit and that's good D? All right cool.

    Easily the best game of Jorts' career.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition

    Did IU drive the ball more than a couple times in the 2nd half? Seems to me they settled for jump shots while Kentucky was looking to drive every possession. Add in superior athletes and it's a recipe for free throw discrepancy.

    Also, our two best players were saddled with foul trouble for much of the game... that helped IU keep it close.

    I thought the defensive intensity from UK was like night and day first half to second.

    What about the call that fouled out Darius Miller? Phantom call if I've ever seen one.

    IU deserves a bunch of credit though, they played their hearts out.

    If Liggins and Jorts hadn't brought it today in a big way, UK loses.

    I can't believe you're bringing up officiating. Goodness. Indiana had 30 fouls called on them, 17 for Kentucky. Strip the last four minutes, and it was still 26-17.

    And for the record, Kentucky actually took more 3-pointers than did Indiana (18-15).

    But hey, don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.

    Now to those UK fans that want to discuss basketball in reality world...

    Kentucky won the game because they tightened the defense the last 8 minutes. Indiana was previously getting some easy backdoor looks, and UK took that away. I was impressive with how aggressive they were down the stretch. Plus, loved the way Liggins was using his size advantage on Hulls to get inside.

    UK played well when it counted. They earned a tough win.

    But typical of some people to make officiating a convenient excuse.

    Someone on another board made a good point that Jorts' play seems to have increased in quality since Kanter was allowed to resume practicing with the team. I don't think those two things are necessarily unrelated.

    Coach Cal post-game: "We won the game over 5 minutes tonight. Offensively AND Defensively."

    Agree with Coach. I do think our defense was really clicking for closer to 10 minutes rather than 5.

    "They could've, maybe should've, won the game tonight."

    Agreed!

    "What about Josh Harrellson tonight?"
