After stringing together multiple quality performances in Kentucky’s run to the title game, the Harrison twins struggled against UConn’s smaller but quicker guards.

No. 3 Florida went into Rupp Arena and knocked off No. 14 Kentucky on Friday night, 69-59. Casey Prather finished with 24 points and four steals while Scottie Wilbekin went for 23 points and two assists without a turnover while hitting big shot after big shot in the second half.

Julius Randle finished with 18 points, nine boards, three assists and three steals and Kentucky’s three perimeter players — the Harrison twins and James Young — combined for 55 points, seven assists and just three turnovers as No. 11 Kentucky picked up a huge win on Saturday, knocking off Missouri on the road, 84-79. The…

Back in December, when Kentucky got dropped by North Carolina on their visit to Chapel Hill, I wrote this column and this sidebar taking stock of Kentucky’s status and potential this season. I think it’s worth revisiting now. If you don’t feel like reading through 1,000 words of two month-old writing, here’s a summary of…

Given how young No. 14 Kentucky is, with just one upperclassman (Jarrod Polson) part of the playing rotation, there were bound to be growing pains during non-conference play. And there are still some lessons to be learned by this group as the move deeper into SEC play with an eye towards the NCAA tournament. Saturday’s…

With their best player sidelined due to serious cramping issues, No. 18 Kentucky trailed No. 6 Louisville 52-51 with 11:01 remaining. And given how young John Calipari’s team is, and their lack of a signature victory to date, that moment represented a major point in the Wildcats’ season. And Kentucky’s young backcourt rose to the…

Over the course of the holiday week, we at College Basketball Talk will be detailing what we believe will be the New Year’s Resolutions of some of the nation’s most talented, most disappointing, and thoroughly enigmatic teams.

Two months ago, the Battle of the Bluegrass that will take place on Saturday afternoon was the single-most highly-anticipated game of the college basketball season. Two of the nation’s top three teams — the last two national champions — squaring off in a game that just-so-happens to be the most intense rivalry in the sport…

I wrote a column last night on No. 11 Kentucky and their 82-77 loss to No. 18 North Carolina. But I wasn’t in Chapel Hill. Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com was. He wrote a column too, and it included this passage, which I found particularly interesting: It was interesting to watch in person because the TV…

We are now 11 games into the college basketball season, but No. 11 Kentucky still appears to be a long way away from being a team capable of winning a national title. The Wildcats are sitting at 8-3 after Saturday’s 82-77 loss to No. 18 North Carolina, with one final chance against Louisville to try…

From Nov. 20th thru Dec. 1st, I’ll be on the road, hitting 21 games in 11 days. To follow along and read my stories from the road, click here. BROOKLYN — Attend enough of John Calipari’s press conferences, and one thing you’ll realize is that the man is media savvy enough that, should he decide…

After Kentucky’s lost to Michigan State in the Champions Classic, the strengths and flaws of a team that had been put on public display for the first time were picked through and analyzed endlessly. The consensus? Kentucky’s potential is through the roof, and that as long as a couple of things happens: Julius Randle learns…

Kentucky is currently in the process of exacting their revenge on Robert Morris in dominating fashion, so losing out on the three points they would have gotten off of this 3/4-court prayer from freshman Andrew Harrison isn’t going to hurt them. But it doesn’t change the fact that it’s an awesome, ridiculous shot. It’s also…

Tuesday is an indisputably great day for college hoop heads around the country, as we not only get 30 straight hours of hoops, but the marathon session of basketball is capped off with the Champions Classic, the single best in-season event ever. That’s right. I said it. I’ll even take it a step further: I…

There’s a ton of hype surrounding the top five in this year’s freshman class and last year’s Rivals Class of 2013 top five of Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon, Jabari Parker and Andrew Harrison played last night in their college debuts. We’ll start with Kentucky, since they had the top class and started four…
Questions still need answering, but Kentucky takes a step in the right direction in win over UNC-Asheville
Nov 8, 2013, 10:28 PM EDT
Kentucky isn’t there yet. They looked sloppy and careless at times and are still learning how to play with each other, but it was evident in the Wildcats’ 89-57 victory over UNC-Asheville that John Calipari has a special group on his hands. Kentucky didn’t need to beat the Bulldogs by 32 points in order for…
