UK fans are not used to being the underdog, whether it’s the regular season or the tournament, but because of some road issues this year, the Cats have found themselves there and we are seeing a team that has grown, matured, and improved as the season has progressed. And we are also seeing that Cal’s coaching ability is not limited to attracting superstar high school players.
Despite Ohio State being the #1 overall seed and the top team most of the year, I felt pretty good going into the game. I think this is because it was pretty clear what UK needed to do to win. Play Sullinger one on one, stop the 3. And that’s what they did. Josh Harrellson (Can we promote him from Jorts to King Jorts?) outplayed the best post player in America, DeAndre Liggins did what he does (cause mayhem). Thad Matta said that UK was the best team they played all year. And OSU is the best team UK played all year. And we won. Awesome sauce.
