Boston U.-Kentucky Preview

Kentucky played well defensively in two home games to start the season. That didn't compare at all to the display coach John Calipari's top-ranked team put forth in its first away from home. His Wildcats won't leave Lexington for the next month as they begin an eight-game homestand Friday night against Boston University. Kentucky (3-0) seeks its 17th straight non-conference...

Bill Self wishes his water was vodka after blowout loss to Kentucky

No. 1 Kentucky manhandled No. 5 Kansas Tuesday night, 72-40. Coincentally, vodka is about 40-percent alcohol. The drubbing was the worst (margin-wise) loss suffered by a Bill Self-coach Kansas team in his 11-plus seasons at the helm. No wonder he was looking for something a little stronger in his water bottle facing the press after the game. Humor is the best medicine, but many...

Self: Cliff Alexander Not Tall Enough To Score Over Kentucky's Length

Cliff Alexander's lack of length was problematic in Kansas' 72-40 loss to Kentucky on Tuesday. Alexander had just eight points and eight rebounds as he struggled against the length of Willie Cauley-Stein, Dakari Johnson, Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles. According to Bill Self, Alexander must learn to put himself in better position to score before he receives the ball. “He’s...

WATCH: Bill Self joked about wanting vodka after big loss

Last night did not quite go as planned for Kansas. While Kentucky was the favorite heading into the game, with its impressive 10-man rotation replete with McDonald’s All-Americans, Kansas has a number of impressive young players in its own right. One 72-40 loss later, things don’t look great for the Jayhawks. Head coach Bill Self tried to keep things light during the post-game...

Tall order: Kentucky just raised the bar for KU -- and everybody else

Bill Self can coach his way out of a mouse's hat box. But the man can't coach height. Eleven field-goal makes. Eleven shots blocked. Mercy. By the time the dust (and tremors) settled at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, the final tally read like this: Kentucky starters 38, Kentucky bench 34, Kansas 40. Add it all up, and the 32-point defeat the fifth-ranked Jayhawks suffered at the...
