UK-U of L live blog

Courtside at Freedom Hall, next to Brett Dawson, with Rick Bozich and C.L. Brown up the way, and we’re less than 20 minutes from tipoff for the Cards and Cats in Freedom Hall.

This is one of the more interesting matchups between the teams in years. They’d appear pretty comparable, but U of L has played badly in losing two of its past three, and UK has fed on a diet of cupcakes in the past couple of weeks.

I was the only C-J writer to pick the Cats this morning, and I did so because I think Patrick Patterson is too much for U of L freshman Samardo Samuels and Jodie Meeks is more dependable than any outside shooter U of L has.

But U of L could well bother the turnover-prone Wildcats with tough ball pressure, though I think people discount how much UK gets after you on defense. UK actually is the more physical team.

U of L, which does have more overall talent, still will have to play its best game of the season to win.

  1. Luckily for the cards they only need guard two players. Noone else wants to shoot for the cats.Coach P gets the great players at UL , but they underachieve. Pitino just doesn’t seem to have that magic or passion that he did when in Lexington.

  2. I mean with the athletes Pitino gets year in year out, you don’t expect losses at least until they get into the Big East play.Why can’t Kentucky put 5 guys on the floor at once that can’t pose an offensive threat. Any descent team can win when its 5 on 2
