I think finally winning a close road game in Knoxville was the turning point. That gave them the confidence they needed to execute in these close late games. They built on that from there. Whatever happens from here is gravy. They have become one of the legendary teams in UK history no matter what happens this weekend.

    This team has shown more maturity in this tournament than they have all year. They're far more composed and play much smarter than before. (Granted, they've made some BAAAADDD passes in the NCAA tourney.)

    So many players have stepped up but I can't help but point out Josh Harrelson. This kid is playing his heart out and has been solid as a rock down the stretch. He's not fancy, he's not intimidating, but he's playing sound, aggressive basketball and the team is winning, in a large part, because of it.

    Dude's averaging almost 15pts per in the tourney while shooting 76% from the field. Bill Walton thinks that's a good shooting percentage.

    Sounds like Wiltjer is turning some heads at the Mickey D's.....

    EvanDanielscout: "Kyle Wiltjer was very good today. Most skilled post player here. Dropped in hooks and jump shots."

    DraftExpress: "Kyle Wiljter showing a very high skill-level. Making 3's, putting ball down, scoring in post a bit. Calipari's going love him in half-court."

    Wiltjer just won the 3 pt contest tonight.

    In other words, next years center just won the three point shooting contest against the rest of his class.

    Designated Canadian dammit now I have to cheer for a Wildcat against everyone except the Cardinals. Oh btw Texas Longhorns had serious Canuck influence this season also.

    Thanks! I hadn't seen his Ohio State game video. He does a great job with these.

    Congrats to Co-MVP of the 2011 McDonald's All-American Game, UK signee Michael Gilchrist

    I think Rivers got the Showboat/Ball-Hog Award as well.

    Shocker. In a game full of showboating you call out the Duke kid.

    Agree somewhat. It does give a glimpse of the raw potential of future recruits though, just have to take into consideration it is pretty much an overglorified AAU game with no defense being played.

    You also see how athleticism stacks up against athleticism. For example, I thought the kid from Bowling Green looked a little less athletic than he did in the high school season. Blacshear, OTOH, looked like he could be a monster (even with the separated shoulder).

    To my mind, Davis' athletic ability is off the charts. So, too, is Gilchrist's. Rivers looks okay, but should be a great scorer, as his release is very quick. He's not a PG, however, at this point.
