Am I to assume that Wiltjer is running the point?
Also, Rashaad Carruth was leading UK scorer. Seriously.
Duke 2-0. UK's weakside help and everybody trying to block shot is brutally bad.
Tonight's officials: Tony Greene, Roger Ayers, Mike Eades
MEDIA TO (15:58) - UK 5, Duke 5; Juiced up atmosphere tonight in the Dome. Wouldn't expect anything less.
Gotta love this. the 7-footers Noel and Cauley-Stein are going to lead this team in floor burns diving for loose balls.
Kentucky is really going to have to be more cognizant of not having 2-3 guys try to block every shot because if it's a driver he dishes to big man they just left (see Duke's first bucket of game) or weakside rebounder gets easy putback
Calipari turns to bench, and pumps fist at Poythress power drive and dunk.
That post up and dunk is what Alex Poythress can be whenever he wants, just needs to want to be that guy more often. He'll get there.
MEDIA TO (11:55) - UK 13, Duke 9; Mason Plumlee just picked up his 2nd foul. That's potentially big for Cats.
I can't stand the charge/block call.
Why am i so calm...hrmmm...
Plumlee just picked up his third, fourth, and fifth fouls. Oh wait they didn't call them.
MEDIA TO (7:48) - UK 21, Duke 19; You won't be surprised to know a Tony Greene-led crew seems to look like has no idea how wants to call it
I don't think I'll ever understand why some plays that look like wrestling matches aren't fouls but minimal contact 20 feet from basket is. I just won't.
Plumlee took down Noel in the rebound. Smacked Goodwin in the face on his three and throw one hell of a shoulder block.
Duke has played Plumlee and Kelly a long time with two fouls each and gotten away with it. That may come back to haunt Kentucky.
MEDIA TO (3:55) - Duke 28, UK 23; Duke to FT line after break. The game was allowed to get very physical and UK has backed down for now.
Duke has only had three players score: Plumlee 14, Curry 9, Kelly 5
HALF: Duke 33, Kentucky 31; Entertaining, physical, sometimes reckless half of basketball. But fun. Definitely fun.
It's going to be another year of ridiculous charge calls.
Odds that Plumlee doesn't pick up that 3rd foul the rest of the way? Why should they call it on him now?
It's all out war underneath the UK goal. It all changed after Kelly picked up his second foul.
Sadly, it's become the norm. It's also an embarrassment.
