    Worst Kentucky team in a long time and they are going to beat us by 20 at home.

    One of the more embarrassing efforts I can remember, Vol football-like.

    I don't see any way in hell this team can string together games to make it to the second weekend in the tournament, unless they get really favorable matchups, and it's not like Barnes is "Mr. March" in any way, either. I think we roll into the 4-6 seed and that is the danger zone for the NCAA tournament.

    Hoops is about making shots and when you go 5-25, results are gonna suck. I dont believe we didn't try today. We just sucked, were overmatched lengthwise, missed JJJ and missed everything from the field. Gotta win the last 2 and get JJJ healthy

    Disappointing season.

    There's a lot more than just making shots which goes into wins and losses. We absolutely did not match the intensity and effort of Kentucky today, 100%.

    Our inside game is a huge liability. I don't know what happened to Fulkerson and Pons has regressed from last year in terms of production, plus there are recruiting misses galore as Barnes seemed to have been convinced he could find and develop the next Grant Williams.

    All true uni, but when you go 6'4, 6'6 and 6'9 against 6'9, 6'10 and 7', post will be limited. This squad will struggle vs length everytime with no pg and no true post, which was my concern going into the season. Need both badly.

    The PG part will get fixed next year. Doesn't look like the post will.

    Yes it will, and I wish we could find a 6-10 post who can also shoot the 3 to clear out some space. Unless we get a transfer, doesn't appear it's happening, and bigger teams will simply switch everything and close gaps

    I'll settle for something more than tall cheerleaders on the sideline who can't average more than 2 pts and 2 boards a game.

    Quite honestly, I hope there are about 3 guys who decide to transfer this year. They, clearly, aren't at their ideal level of play here.

    Who is going to be the fix?

    Chandler can handle the ball and penetrate as well as any pg we have ever had. Should free up Vescovi and Bailey to catch and shoot, which is what they need to be doing. Our 4 and 5 are gonna suck unless Mashack can come in and help at the 4

    Yeah I was referring more to any kind of help in the post.

    No. An issue for Barnes. Need a transfer. Fulk will probably be back and healthier but he can't compete inside unless he's running the floor

    Pippen and Disu are out for Vandy. Let's see if Pember can score 40 tonight

    Vandy very active on defense and helping hard on all drives.

    Dude shooting from his chest like a HS girl lighting us up

    I really am not understanding the substitution patterns. We just seem to throw random guys out there.

    Fulky has 2 fouls and Nkamhoua playing like a [itch bay].
