Kentucky Wildcat Basketball: Defensive Improvement

The Wildcat defense has struggled (relatively speaking) for much of the season, but in recent weeks has put together some of it's best games of the year.

Wildcat Basketball: Offense on the Upswing

Kentucky ended the regular season with some of their worst basketball of the year. The Cats have regained their offensive mojo during tournament play however, just in time for another classic battle against Louisville.

GOG 2013-14 #19: NCAA Tournament [Scored]

It's the final GOG of the year (barring a return to the Final Four)! The Cats played as well as they have all year in the SEC Tournament, can they continue to do so in the Big Dance?

GOG 2013-14 #18: SEC Tournament [Scored]

It's the penultimate GOG and the penultimate chance for the Cats to make something positive happen this year. Can Cal's Tweak change the inertia of the season? We'll find out this week.

GOG 2013-14 #17: Alabama and Florida [Scored]

The season is almost to an end. Kentucky closes with Senior Day and one last chance to stop Florida from making history.

GOG 2013-14 #15: Arkansas, South Carolina [Scored]

Believe it or not the season is almost over! Cats get a Thursday/Saturday set featuring vengeance against the Razorbacks and a contest against the woeful Gamecocks.

GOG 2013-14 #15: Mississippi, LSU [Scored]

A rematch week with Kentucky playing second series games against Mississippi and LSU. The Cats try to rebound from a tough loss with a key road game then look to get some payback against the Tigers in Rupp.

A big week for the Cats as they face an improved Auburn squad and square off with Florida in the first of two games that will decide the conference champion.

GOG 2013-14 #13: Mississippi, Miss. St [Scored]

It's All Magnolia State All the Time this week as the Marshall Henderson show makes its first (and only) stop at Rupp Arena and the Cats travel to Starksville to complete the season series with Mississippi St.

GOG 2013-14 #12: LSU and Missouri [Scored]

A big week for the Cats as they aim to prove their recent improved play is more than just home cooking. Games against LSU and Missouri should both prove to be difficult contests.

GOG 2013-14 #11: Texas A&M and Georgia [Scored]

A couple of home games this week against teams with good defenses. John Calipari has never beaten Texas A&M in Rupp Arena. He should change that.

The (Opportunity) Cost of Shooting Free Throws

Getting to the line and shooting some free throws is always a good thing...right?

GOG #10: Arkansas and Tennessee [Scored]

GOG #07: Louisville [Scored]

Problem: The University of Louisville is infecting Rupp Arena. Solution: Pain.

DSS: Belmont

Kentucky won its penultimate non-conference game Saturday against the Belmont Bruins. The game featured tremendous offensive performances by both teams, despite some evidence of better defense by the Cats.

It's a big weekend of hoops with the Men playing the always-feisty Belmont Bruins while the Women throw down with the Duke Blue Devils in Rupp.

Kentucky soldiers on with two tough games this week against Boise St and North Carolina. Can Kentucky rebound from their loss to Baylor? Will we see improved play against quality teams? Make your predictions in the GOG!

Kentucky has played 9 games now, almost a quarter of the season, and defense has emerged as a primary weakness. Let's look at how individual players have performed so far.

DSS: Robert Morris

Kentucky avenged their NIT loss to Robert Morris on Sunday and produced their best defensive game of the young season thus far. Who cares about the team though - Cat fans everywhere are excited about the defensive play of Dominique Hawkins!

GOG 2013-14 #02: RM and UTA [Scored]

Kentucky bounces back with a chance for some payback against Robert Morris and getting UT Arlington in the Keightley Classic. Answers due by 7:00, Sunday November 17.
