My post game rant

The Kentucky Basketball team that we have all had the pleasure of watching this season is not the same team that showed up to play the Tennessee Volunteers yesterday. As I commented earlier this morning on a Facebook page:

"In order to win games at this point of the season, especially on the road, you have to go into every game as though it could be your last. I think that we have a young team that has a hard time realizing that they cannot go into an atmosphere like yesterday not ready to play. You cannot go into an atmosphere like that and let the home team get that much momentum and expect to pull out a win when you FINALLY decide to start playing late in the second half. Tennessee's players came into the game ready to play and their fans came into that arena ready to cheer their team on to win. In my opinion, and I bleed blue, Tennessee was the better team yesterday."

Oh well, better a loss now than in the SEC or NCAA Tournament's. UK's next game will be against Georgia on Wednesday, March 3rd at 8:00pm on CBS. On Jan. 9th, UK held off the Bulldogs for a 76-68 win in both teams SEC openers. The win also gave the Wildcats their first 16-0 start since 1965-66. For Lexington Insight customers tune into channels 9 or 912.
