Refs weren’t great this game but their not the reason we lost we shot to many damn threes(34) we know our strength getting to the FT line and finishing we didn’t stick to it because we came out hot from three to start the game and they kept trying to go back to it.

Meh. Much better than I expected. We played them a lot tougher at rupp this season than the past 2 years with much better teams. I expected to get run out of the gym by 30 plus. So I was pleasantly surprised. I never expected us to win this game but with how bad we shot from 3 it's a miracle it was as close as it was. If you told me we only would lose by 7 beforehand I would of thought we shot  lights out. But noooope. Abysmal as usual from three.

Fools gold. You start the game hitting a bunch of them, fall in love with it, and it kills you.

We are eventually going to clip them at rupp but we never were with this team. O and if you want to know why we take so many threes it's because against good teams it usually is the only consistently semi open shot we get.

I didn’t get to watch and see it was AU FTs that cost them the game, but 46 fouls called? Doesn’t matter who they favored that is detrimental to college basketball and endemic of the state of officiating. Unacceptable.

Teams know how to defend us by now and there's a reason we are open all the time from three. Just pack it in the paint and there's nothing we can do against the good teams except hope for a miracle like the LSU game when we hit 18 threes.

UK didn’t make a FG for 7+ minutes in the 2nd half, but still maintained a 3-5 point lead all the way up until the last 2-3 minutes.

Drive and draw the foul is about the only strategy we seem to possess. Would work great if we were a great FT shooting team.

same old,same old...Missed FT's, dumb fouls, typical bad calls at Rupp by corrupt officials(the call of Quickly's 3 point attempt should warrant a suspension for that scum sucker, never touched Quickley or the ball)) Wiley missed 3 easy,point blank shot,etc. It makes me happy to gripe about losing to UK at Rupp by 7,though. One more win to get to 25, with this group? I'll take it because I did not expect it before the year. AU basketball has won 80 games in the last 3 years! Amazing

That was kind of 50/50. From the camera angle on the backboard it looked like Isaac hooked first trying to box him out.

i did not see it but i miss a lot..........thanx

Okoro drives and loses the handle nearly every time. J’von cant make free throws. We hung with them despite these short comings.  Wiley did ok when he was in. If he would avoid cheap fouls he should get more minutes. Not a bad game in Lexington. We had to hit more threes and didn’t. I’ll gladly take a split with uk every year.

That was the toughest game we will have the rest of the year. Nothing will compare the rest of the season playing a really good UK team at rupp. They have the pieces to go to a final 4. Great sign we didn't come close to playing well and it still it was competitive.

Road games in basketball and football are very different beasts. 

Spot TF on. In football you never have to worry about losing to a caliber team of a Mizzou and Georgia on the road like we did in basketball. Bball teams get a much bigger boost at home than fball.
