Apparently, an Auburn shoot around makes things worse. :wave:

We got beat in every minute on every part of the court for every minute of the game.

My only tiny little excuse is that we could have had another non-conference game during the past 11 days of dead time but the sec misinformed Pearl about scheduling.
We definitely looked like the loser in every respect.

... Duke also plays its 2nd true away game on 1/12 vs #13 Florida State. Its 1st wasn't very far "away", 1/8 at weak Wake Forest. Who knows, maybe they'll both start flopping.
WATCH: No. 1 Duke gets last-second Cam Reddish 3 to beat No. 13 Florida State

Wow, whose man was he? Duke 80, Florida State 78. Close.

I know there are lots of reasons for wins and losses, but I came thaaaat close to being able to blame the lack of true away games in Nov. and Dec.

Wait - I thought everything before March is "pre-season." Are there real games?

There may be for Duke if Zion listens to the pros telling me to go pro before he gets hurt.

Just heard that we won't have our big starter. Not good news, not good news at all.
No word if he's sick or hurt.
Game at 3 central

Bummer. I've turned it on. Auburn favored by 4.5.

TN beat AL in a close game, will keep the SEC lead.

Duke's missing a player, too:
Not sure what that mess of a paragraph really means. Duke's still favored by 3.5.

This is interesting, Michigan was poised to possibly take over #1 from 2-loss Duke.

Wisconsin hands No. 2 Michigan first loss of the season

I love Horace but he travels a bunch and with Wiley on the bench hurt, Horace is our big man.

Bryce is finally hitting 3s. Could be too late or it could be another 30 point half.

Not so sure about the moving screen calls.

Ouch, allllmost.

The game is at Duke, I had looked at the wrong Virginia game. 2/9 is there.

I said Bryce needed his 30. He got 28 and we lost by 2. Great almost comeback.
I do call bullshit on the refs for systematically taking out our remaining big guys on little ticky fouls and not sure at all why Washington was able to continue playing with 2 flagrant 1s, or why Okeke was charged with one when Washington hooked him and threw him down.

As a possible neutral party, what did you think?


Could be my not knowing the rules or Kentucky playing by different rules.

I had it on while on the computer, but was not watching close enough to have an opinion. I see that KY was called for 20 fouls vs 25 for Auburn, but that doesn't tell us what the calls should have been.
