  • Where UK 2018 ranks compared to other Cal-Era teams

    This is looking at this team's national ranking compared to other Cal-Era UK teams' national ranking in these categories:

    Offense
    Adjusted Offensive Efficiency: 8th out of 9 Cal-Era UK teams
    Effective FG%: 7th
    2pt FG%: 7th
    3pt FG%: 5th
    Offensive Rebound%: 5th
    Turnover %: last (and it's not really close--UK ranks 252nd nationally in Offensive TO%. The next worst team, UK 2010, was 165th.)

    Defense
    Adjusted Defensive Efficiency: 8th
    Effective FG% D: last (and again, not especially close--UK ranks 67th nationally in eFG% D. Next worst, last year's team, finished 44th.)
    2pt FG% D: 8th
    3pt FG% D: 8th
    Defensive Rebound%: 8th
    Turnover %: 3rd

I've not given up by a long shot, and believe that I am not alone there. The good news is that a lot of the issues we are having (e.g., defense) can be fixed with time and effort. I'm not concerned that these guys can't score because I think they can, but they need to maintain intensity on both ends, particularly on defense, and rebound.
      Good post

      2 Of the teams that did not make the Final 4 went 35-3 And 32-6

      6 outstanding to great teams

      We are definitely spoiled, but I like it that way.

      I have no less confidence in this group than any other UK team I can recall. Except maybe Billy Clyde's last team.
      Thats the best I can offer.

      Long and slow. Strong and lacking a shooters touch. Young and having a low basketball IQ. Balanced having no star who can get it done when called upon.

      Potential and a team that can play good on occasion.

      The glass isn't always half full.

      Here's how they ended

      Offense
      Adjusted Offensive Efficiency: 8th out of 9 Cal-Era UK teams
      Effective FG%: 8th
      2pt FG%: Last
      3pt FG%: 4th
      Offensive Rebound%: 3rd
      Turnover %: last

      Defense
      Adjusted Defensive Efficiency: 7th out of 9
      Effective FG% D: 7th
      2pt FG% D: 8th
      3pt FG% D: 2nd
      Defensive Rebound%: 8th
      Turnover %: 5th

      If you looked at this alone, you'd think Sweet 16 is a pretty good result for a team that was below-average in most of these areas. But when you throw in the absolute gift-wrapped path to the Final 4 they were given, not so much.

      Well, the season is over, so you don't need encouragement.

      There's way more to indicate that next year won't be the same.

    I’ve watch the players after they leave Kentucky. They play outstandingly and seem to be better than most they are playing against. Can we see
