Jksport

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

Thanks. Its interesting the discrepancy. I wonder if there were some way to use this difference for betting. :-) Like in The Sting. :-)

Melrank in reply to Lajayhawk

I'm going all in on ERASER!

Stupidmichael in reply to Lajayhawk

He was def talking trash earlier in the game...

Darin Bradley

Workman like effort. Good win for November. Rock Chalk

Stupidmichael

Nice minutes from KY. Did he have a turnover this game?

Lajayhawk

Anyone have an answer to this GHOST trash talk thing I heard them talking about?

Lajayhawk

DUBYA

Jksport

Rock Chalk....

Jaybate

Withey has come alive scoring. He should get 30 tonight if they just keep sticking it in.

Brian Haase

BLUE hair for........ and bricks ANOTHER 3

Jesse Newell in reply to Jaybate

Nine and 16.

Rolland Remmert

hope we don't have many espnu games this year...especially if these two guys are the A team

Marcus Balzer in reply to Stupidmichael

The Dream

David Leathers

Self looks like a proud father

Jesse Newell

That ties Withey's career-high with 25 points.

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

ESPN box score says 7 for The Prophet. 14 for the team.

Jksport

Yeah, KU bigs are NO good as pros... it's just the positioning you know - Bardo sux!

Lajayhawk

Well... It won't take a rocket scientist to pick 1 and 2 in the Keegan ratings... and 3 for that matter.

Iandhi in reply to Jksport

Hey, what did I do?

Stupidmichael

JEFF OLAJUWON

Jksport

Jeff owns you!

Jesse Newell

Withey going hard to the bucket.

Jaybate

This is the way to beat a team. Keep sticking it inside to Withey, especially if your not going to go up and touch iron as a guard.

Jesse Newell

I believe that's 10 assists for Johnson.

Jksport

suck on those purple Ellis

Brian Haase

beautiful pass from EJ

Darin Bradley

KY gets beat on the switch a lot. Ellis still getting open looks.

Melrank in reply to Brian Haase

Oh

Brian Haase

wonder what their game plan is..... BLUE hair

Lajayhawk in reply to Melrank

8:23 PM, currently...

Jaybate in reply to Stupidmichael

The announcer is probably related to someone at network and is an empty headed dork.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Jesse, just got caught up on my DVR to real time, so I just jumped on. What's this "trash talk" thing the announcers were saying was said about Releford? Did a SLU player say something?

Stupidmichael

The announcer literally said that flops are horrible plays (after KY drew a charge) and then praises this Ellis D-nozzle for taking 6 charges and being great at getting his feet set. You gotta call it both ways color commentary.

Jaybate

The reason I'm harping on the offensive boarding is that if you're going to turn it into a jump shooting game and waste alot of Js inside the trey stripe,then you have to offensive rebound to get your productivity and shooting percentage up.

If they would attack the rim, or feed it into Withey to shoot two and get a fT, then the offensive rebounding would not be so critical. But the other team is going to start jacking treys when behind, and so you have to be taking three point plays yourself, or you have to offensive rebound and stick back to keep the statistical drift in your favor.

Melrank in reply to Lajayhawk

What the hell? It's the middle of the night out there!

Boulderhawk in reply to Jeremy Wilhelm

Counting the hair?

Danr

Bardo pretty sure that was a charge on Withey

Ia4jayhawk in reply to Lajayhawk

Welcome to the future

Melrank in reply to Jesse Newell

That's the kinda support I've come to expect for the ERASER!

Jeremy Wilhelm

How many fouls on bluehair?

Lajayhawk

Evening all. Finally got caught up to real time on my DVR.

David Leathers

Never have I seen so many horrible charging calls.

Melrank in reply to Newtonhawk

Good one!

Marcus Balzer

Surprised the Aussie didn't fall down there.

Ia4jayhawk in reply to Melrank

Me likey

Danr

Ha, dbag, bluhair

Withey gets another huge bucket right when KU needs it.

Adam Gerval in reply to Brian Haase

+1

Jksport

Anrio with the 155 lb flex on the bench

Newtonhawk

FLOPTHAT

Melrank

Dare I say . . . ERASER!

Brian Haase

WITHEY

Jesse Newell

Cody Ellis is 6-for-18 for 19 points. Almost identical numbers to Motum on Monday.

Jeremy Wilhelm

So maybe we shouldn't let Ellis shoot from three anymore, you know, if we can stop him.

Boulderhawk in reply to Darin Bradley

Agree.

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

And well he should have been.

Melrank

This BArdo dude is pissing me off more than Vitale.

Iandhi

His 3's feed off of flops.

Darin Bradley

Time to put Releford on this kid and close out the game

Brian Haase

no matter how many times you FLOP and make three's you still willfully chose to die your hair blue

Brooksmd

ESPN said he had feet set. One foot still in the air.

Jesse Newell

Self was yelling at Kevin Young defensively before that three even went up.

Stupidmichael

That's a horrible call. And this homer announcer who gives KY sh*t for flopping says that this guy is great at getting his feet set.

Travis Warner

And the announcers just loving it.

Mosshawk in reply to Kent Wells

let me guess...you play the drums

Kusportsnut

I feel like I'm watching a Duke game with all this flopping

Melrank

He's really good at getting BS callls from the refs, too.

Jksport

GD! Ellis is a joke and these refs suck a$$

Boulderhawk

Flopapallooza

Newtonhawk

Awful.

Mom_of_three

Ellis was not set

Darin Bradley

Crap call

Jeremy Wilhelm

This ref loves calling charges

Danr

You gotta be kidding

Jaybate in reply to Jesse Newell

ESPN box score on reebs now reads:

Bills: 29 KU: 25

Iandhi

floptastic

Bwag

That one was bogus

Jesse Newell

Cody Ellis has great timing on his flops. You have to give him that.

Travis Warner

F.L.O.P.

Brian Haase

FLOP Ellis

Melrank

Eraser with the block. Prophet to Ghost - wow.

Jksport

eat some clock

Kent Wells

I really liked that play!

Jesse Newell

That behind-the-back pass from Johnson brings the loudest cheer of the night.

Mom_of_three

OH, baby
