Jorts now a hero, and Patterson has a message for current Cats
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Josh Harrellson will be jumping through his hoop Tuesday night as an outgoing senior – the only senior – on a team that has needed him more than they ever thought they would. It’s been a season of vindication for the man they call “Jorts,”...

Saturday was definitely Miller Time
LEXINGTON, Ky. – We first saw him in a Mason County uniform back in the day, struggling to get his team from the region to the Sweet Sixteen on the Rupp floor. They made it, only to lose and vow to be back the next season. That year, his senior, they...

Hard to blame Knight for this loss
This was supposed to be Brandon Knight’s coming out party. This was supposed to be the game when the kid showed everyone he was the Answer. That he could step up and be the Man when the team needed him. That he could win a close game when his team had...

Cats need this spark for last leg of season
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Well that was fun, wasn’t it? Some people like nailbiters. They want what they call a “good game.” You know, those games where the lead shuffles back and forth like an iPod, the end always in doubt. I hate those games. I love a good blowout,...

Defense a problem, but a win is a win, right?
LEXINGTON, Ky. – It didn’t start well, with a 7-2 run from Miss. St. that quickly quieted the Rupp crowd. It didn’t end well, as UK forgot how to inbound the ball against pressure, turning a sure-fire win into something more like an escape from near disaster....

Cats got em right where they want em
Note: This was originally written Saturday night. It was only recently posted. Memo to Cat fans: No need to make any calls to the suicide hotline. Do not worry about your team. Why, you say? You remind me that Saturday produced the seventh loss of the...

UK will go as far as elders take them
LEXINGTON, Ky. – With UK building what would be an insurmountable lead Tuesday, Darius Miller took flight. In front of him was a wide-open dunk and the screams of 24,000-plus adoring fans. Of course, something happened on the way to Dunkville. Scotty...

Inability to win the close one strikes again
Well, other than the Louisville game, this matchup at Florida was the biggest game of the season. Coming in, Kentucky was rattled, had already lost 3 SEC games and looked to be on the fast road to being out of the conference race altogether. Why? A lot...

Can the Cats win the close one? They haven’t yet
Oh boy. Another loss, right? Yes, this team can play like freshmen, which means it will drive us crazy at times. But, as Coach Cal says, there is no team with more upside than the Cats. Still, there’s one thing that worries me: that dreaded close game....

Cats roll, while Cards continue to amaze
LEXINGTON – There was a moment in the first half of UK’s 66-60 win over Georgia in Rupp Arena that I almost stood up and cheered. See, standing up and cheering from press row is in general a frowned upon activity. I hold back. Even though I’m a fan, and...
