    It's now 25-14. Belmont is running it straight up the court on the fast break twice in a row. Before that they hit another 3. Belmont can't stop Randal but UK doesn't seem able or desire to get him the ball.

    We could use one or two of those Belmont shooters.
    We're a Humphrey away from playing for another Natty.

    I think you may be discounting Frazier's contribution to this team.

    All Kentucky has to do is throw it inside to Randle and the refs will call a foul..he has already taken 16 foul shots..he throws that stiff arm out everytime. I worry about our bigs getting into foul trouble up there.

    Kentucky's individual talent is impressive. As a team they still have a long way to go imo.

    Remember how point guard dependent Cal's teams often are. UK made its run with Polson in at point guard once Andrew got in foul trouble. Right now, Polson is MUCH better at initiating everything. For this team to be good in March though, its gotta be someone else.

    Without consistent point guard play, this team isn't going to look tons better than they do now. Lots of time left though.

    Side note - I hate when people (not saying anyone has done it in this thread) group the twins together when critiquing them. Aaron has been great.

    WCS is a different kind of kid, which I think is fine. He is a good kid who works his ass off so I don't understand why you think he is a clown. What floats "your" boat sure as hell doesn't have to float his.

    My gosh people bash kids for everything these days I guess...

    I don't necessarily disagree, but you have to remember that the majority of fan bases don't tend to view "different" opposing players with that kind of understanding. Maybe you've forgotten the reception guys like Matt Walsh and Joakim Noah got from the Big Blue faithful?

    I agree on all those points. I still think that, by camping Randle on the blocks, they are preventing Harrison from running Calipari's offense. The DDO is all about clearing the lane, spacing the floor on with wings and with one big in that short corner or weakside elbow, and allowing your ballhandling penetrators to create. It really is a dream system for a good point guard, but for some reason Harrison has been terrible there so far. That has surprised me because I thought much more highly of him than his brother as a prep. The only logical explanation to my mind is that they have run the offense through Randle so much that the guards haven't been able to get penetration. When you have a horse like Randle, it is hard to go away from him, but I wonder if the consequence is lackluster point guard play from a terrific talent in Harrison.

    True they did get poor receptions and I think that sucks. These are kids playing a game we all love, no need to bash them IMHO
