    Why is Whitney even playing? He has not proved he deserves any playing time.

    Whitney is the most worthless player to ever play under Cal.

    Whitney takes that shot because he has absolutely no idea what else to do with the ball when he gets it

    9 offensive boards someone other than Nick has to rebound.

    UK shooting 60%, Bama shooting 32% and it’s only a 2 point game.

    We are absolutely killing ourselves and it’s dumb as hell.

    Has Whitney ever not shot the first time he touches the ball?

    It’s clockwork, solid defense and can’t score. When we score we stop playing defense. Soon as we mesh the two we will look great!

    Alabama is really not playing very well and we’ve given them probably 10-12 points just by not being smart. We should be up 15 but keep getting in our own way with turnovers and too many guys jumping for blocks

    I understand that. But it doesn’t give him an excuse to take one three a game that will absolutely never have a chance. He is trash.

    Bama much quicker. This is going to be a struggle. Cats need to take care of the ball better

    They are just switching until Sestina gets one on one and taking him to the rack. Good coaching for them.

    Terrible rebounding, terrible awareness of cutters, and bad defense on drives so far. As poorly as they have shot the 3, we needed to get a lead.

    Not defending pick and roll been a problem for us all year. ALA driving and dishing. We are getting caught on double/triple teaming.... got to stay home.

    Bama has themselves a good coach. Like his style of play for sure.

    Troubling that Kentucky is only up 3 when they are shooting 55% from the field and Bama is shooting 33%.
    9 Off boards for Bama, 7 Kentucky turnovers have led to Bama having 12 more shots.
    Bama 30 to Kentucky 18 shots

    Out rebounded by 3 and 4 more turnovers are killing us. That's 7 possessions.

    He is definitely going to get he is that’s for sure. I agree with Cal. If Whitney just rebounded, played great defense, lob dunks etc. he would be great. Taking Corner three-pointers is not his shot, but it’s easy that’s why he does it. It’s harder to do that other stuff.

    Its like offensive holding in football.. you can find it everytime if you look for it.

    Just odd to me that three different 5-star players, are having trouble doing something that's learned in the 7th grade.

    Bama not even playing well and UK shooting as well as they possibly can.

    2 point game, UK should be a little concerned. If Bama starts hitting threes this will be a battle.

    But Cal figured Skal out, eventually. Kid had a decent mid range. Whitney has absolutely nothing.

    This team finds a way to play to the competition, higher or lower.
