    The defensive fortitude showed by Alex Poythress helped Kentucky-Louisville crack through for ‘game of the night’, but there are several other sterling — and not so great — performances from the final Sweet 16 games.

  8. Kentucky’s got the talent, but here’s why they will not win a title this year

    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…

  9. Alex Poythress continues his hot streak as No. 14 Kentucky outlasts Texas A&M

    Jan 22, 2014, 12:21 AM EDT

    Texas A&M v Kentucky

    It wasn’t always pretty and it wasn’t always exciting, but No. 14 Kentucky did the job they were supposed to do against Texas A&M on a snowy Tuesday night, dispatching the Aggies, 68-51. Billy Kennedy entered the night with a game-plan: to play the game at a snail’s pace, trying to keep the score in…

  10. Interior play pushes No. 14 Kentucky past Vanderbilt

    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…

    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.

  12. No. 19 Kentucky overcomes slow start, handles Belmont in Rupp

    Dec 21, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Belmont v Kentucky

    Julius Randle finished with 29 points and 10 boards and Willie Cauley-Stein chipped in with 16 points and seven boards as No. 19 Kentucky withstood an early three-point barrage to knock off Belmont 93-80. The Bruins were scorching from beyond the arc in the first half, taking a lead that stretched to as much as…

  13. Kentucky is a flawed team, but does that mean they can’t contend?

    Dec 14, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Kentucky v North Carolina

    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…

  14. Kentucky has room to grow, but at least they seem to respond to coaching

    Boise State v Kentucky

    No. 11 Kentucky entered Tuesday night’s matchup with Boise State coming off of a loss to Baylor at the Jerry Dome in Dallas, one in which the Wildcats were crushed on the offensive glass and cut up by the Bears in the pick and roll. It was concerning. What has made John Calipari’s youthful rosters…

    Willie Cauley-Stein

    Willie Cauley-Stein has a strong case to be considered the most interesting player in college basketball this season. From his size and ability on the floor to his fashion sense off the court all the way to his fascination (and preparation) for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. During Friday night’s 67-62 loss to Baylor, the Kentucky…

    After graduation claimed do-it-all point guard Pierre Jackson from last year’s Baylor team, many wondered if Kenny Chery– a Junior College transfer from State Fair Community College in Missouri — could fill the void. Scott Drew was going to give Chery the keys to the car, but could he drive it? Chery answered that question in…

    Sunday’s season four premiere of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ drew an outrageous 16.1 millions viewers. Kentucky sophomore forward Willie Cauley-Stein isn’t just a huge fan of the critically-acclaimed show, he’s also using to prepare for a possible zombie apocalypse, which he discussed with reporters on Tuesday (in the video above).

  24. Willie Cauley-Stein to miss 10-14 days with right hand injury

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    Willie Cauley-Stein

    It was announced on Saturday night that Willie Cauley-Stein, a projected starter for Kentucky in the frontcourt, will miss up to two weeks of practice time due to an injury sustained to his right hand. Considering the time of Cauley-Stein’s injury and if the 10-14 days of absence are accurate, he certainly should not miss…

    In a game that Kentucky badly needed to keep its NCAA tournament hopes alive, Willie Cauley-Stein blocked four shots and grabbed eight rebounds in a 61-57 Wildcat win over No. 11 Florida at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky. Kentucky’s work is not yet done, but it can breathe a sigh of relief for now. This…
