Listen, do you think I like to blog Kentucky blowouts? Well, yes, yes, I do. It’s fun to watch your team just beat the shit out of another team. I highly suggest doing it sometime. It’s fun to do. Mostly because you get things like this.
Ian Eagle just dropping Ja Rule lyrics because he had to talk about Ja Rule having a concert at Rupp Arena on Friday. That’s what happens when you blow teams out. It was my favorite non-Bill Raftery call in a long time. Just the perfect execution of ‘always on time.’
As for the game? Well, what can you say? It was an absolute ass kicking. PJ Washington continues to play like an All-American and is shooting a ho-hum 46% from three this year now. The fact he added that to his game while still being able to bully in the paint is huge. Him starting the game drilling 4 threes just opened the floor up and let Tyler Herro attack the rim and Hagans penetrate.
Speaking of games. Keldon Johnson dropped an 8/17/5 stat line. 17 rebounds! As a wing. That’s pretty absurd all in itself.
Kentucky needed that game to hold serve with LSU after the win over Tennessee. You have Arkansas during the week before going to Knoxville. You couldn’t afford a slip against Auburn at home. Good to see it come easily.
Now your obligatory music video:
