NASHVILLE, Tenn. – All the Kentucky Wildcats can do now is sit and wait. After weeks of speculation, bubble talk and mock brackets, the Cats took their fate out of their own hands and put their faith in the NCAA Tournament selection committee with a stunning 64-48 loss to Vanderbilt in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament at Bridgestone Arena.
Faced with very real possibility that their at-large NCAA Tournament hopes could die with a loss against Florida on Saturday (noon on CBS), Coach Cal is hoping survival instincts bring out what he’s been trying to get all season from his players: a will to win; a will to fight.
John Calipari, Ryan Harrow and Alex Poythress talk about UK’s “one-game season” while Julius Mays and Twany Beckham talk about their final game at Rupp Arena.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – There are a number of ways to win – and lose – a basketball game, but Saturday’s Kentucky-Arkansas matchup was basketball at its simplest. At the root of the basic formula: The Razorbacks fought harder than the Wildcats.
When Tennessee added insult to Nerlens Noel’s devastating knee injury, John Calipari knew he had to do something different to turn his team’s season around. His method: Put it in the guards’ hands and just let them play.
Before setting off for Arkansas, where the Cats will play the Razorbacks on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET, John Calipari and Wildcats Ryan Harrow and Julius Mays spoke with the media about their recent play, the Arkansas’ pressure defense and handling a hostile environment at Bud Walton Arena.
