    Kentucky pulled away late in their game at Vandy. Nothing easy in the SEC this season.

    Choker Lachance blew any shot Vandy had. 4 straight missed FT’s when it mattered. He’s normally good. Must be nice to have UK’s luck. Great FT shooters miss in crunch time. Against us, guys who shoot terrible typically are awesome. It’s astounding how often teams have incredible FT stats when they play us.

    How many times have we heard this. “Player A has struggled at the line this year shooting only 52%.” Then he steps up and makes both and goes 8-8 for the game. Drives me crazy!

    Bill Koss said during post game that our opponent free throw percentage is 7th highest in the nation. That is ridiculous.

    Yea I jeard that in the radio. It is just bad luck. They see the Florida Jersey and work extra hard at the line to beat us. The same could be said for the last second shot prior to the shot clock winding down. I have not looked but I guess it is really high as well.

    Maybe we foul the wrong guys.

    Or maybe the Moose Man needs a different Speedo to wave around.

    No we foul the right guys. Lol Marvin Bagley for example shoots 60% from the line. What does he do against us? He hit like 9 out of 10. I promise it happens to us all the time. It is crazy.
