Kentucky Blog: Wildcats Stumped By Vols' Halfcourt Defense

Immediately following Kentucky's second loss of the season on Saturday, our UK blog, A Sea of Blue, has broken down exactly why and how the Wildcats lost.

Kentucky shot the ball very poorly, but much of that was due to a Volunteer half-court defense that Kentucky never did solve.  I know there will be a tendency to bemoan the officiating (and I truly loathe Tony Greene), but from my viewpoint, the missed calls mostly evened out, and I was keeping that score closely.  So let's all focus on the reality, which is that Tennessee outplayed us, especially very late in the game, and that's what won them the game.  The rowdy and loud crowd today really helped them, also.
