UK fighting the Irish

Tonight is a big night for the Cats.  They visit the Joyce Center where winning never comes easy.  With all this drama being created around the coaching position at UK, tomorrow night will be the perfect escape, at least for a couple of hours.

BILLY GILLISPIE IS OUR HEAD COACH, and he has done a phenomenal job so far in this tournament adjusting and putting his players in the best position to win.  I am tired of talking about the Billy Debacle right now.  Billy Donovan is sitting on his ass right now after losing at home to Penn State to end the season.  I hope he watches us whoop some Irish ass on tv tomorrow night.

Tomorrow brings a lot to the table, but there are 2 things to look for that stand out the most in my opinion.  First, is the matchup between Patrick Patterson and Luke Harangody.  If Patterson is interested in going pro at the end of the season, tomorrow night is a prime opportunity for him to display his skills.  A bad night from Pat not only spells doom for the Cats’ chances of winning, but it might also hurt his draft status.  Second, UK needs to be worried about Kyle McAlarney and Ryan Ayers  hitting from downtown.  We all know our defense is susceptible to the wide open 3-point shot, and if that keeps up tomorrow night, our boys in blue will be in for a looooooong night.

If the Cats can pull out the win here, we go to MSG with a very good chance at winning this tourney.  We would get Penn St. in the semi-finals, and then play either Baylor, St. Mary’s, or San Diego State, which are all very winnable games.

But let’s take it one game at a time.  GO BIG BLUE!!!!!
