LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Julius Mays’ eight points in overtime, including four clinching free throws in the final 33 seconds, helped Kentucky get the important victory it needed to bolster its NCAA tournament chances, beating Missouri 90-83 Saturday night.
Mays made six free throws in overtime and scored 21 of his 24 points after halftime for the Wildcats (19-8, 10-4 Southeastern Conference), who needed a `quality’ win to go along with their triumph over then-No. 16 Mississippi last month. Kentucky got it by holding serve at Rupp Arena over Missouri (19-8, 8-6) in the marquee game on ESPN College Game Day, and the Wildcats’ backcourt was key in beating the Tigers.
Archie Goodwin scored all 18 of his points after intermission while Ryan Harrow added 16 with eight rebounds and six assists. That helped offset Phil Pressey’s 27 points and Missouri’s determined effort that forced overtime.
Instead, the Tigers saw their road woes continue in falling to 1-7.
Alex Poythress added 21 points for the Wildcats, who improved to 2-1 since losing freshman center Nerlens Noel to a season-ending knee injury.
Kentucky shot 30 of 59 from the field (51 percent). Missouri finished 33 of 76 (43.4 percent).
Alex Oriakhi added 16 points and Laurence Bowers 13 for the Tigers.
The tight ending typified the game’s importance for both teams hoping for at-large tournament bids. Though Missouri seemed to be in better shape than Kentucky, Tigers coach Frank Haith said there were many teams “in the same boat,” needing a substantive win.

Kentucky Goes Down HARD!!!

suck

In a Game so ugly that I thought Billy Gillispie had invaded Coach Cal’s body, UK went down to a turrible Tennessee team by 30 points.

Thirty Points!  Yes!  Thirty Points!

It’s time for Cal to bench Goodwin.  Let him transfer at the end of the year if the kid doesn’t want to be coached.  Let him transfer now.

More effort needs to go into getting Poythress on his game.

There is no way that either of those two are ready to go Pro.  That doesn’t mean that they won’t or that some idiotic NBA team will not draft them.  Who knows what will happen?  Is Isiah Thomas still an  NBA GM.  He’ll draft both of ’em.

Noel going down is apparently the end of the whole season.

Unless Uncle Julius can find a way to bring these guys along with him.  Mays needs Oz to bring this team some HEART!

I don’t know the answer.  I’m not supposed to know the answer.  That’s why Kentucky is paying John Calipari 4 or 5 million dollars a year.  Cal, it’s time to step it up.  Get it done.
