The terms, almost and close apply well in horseshoes and hand grenades. Not so much in basketball or other parts of life. This time the dawgs came close. But again fell to the Wildcats 76-68. Even though we were trying to get a streak going against the Wildcats. Could we have won this game? Yes. Did we get outplayed? No. So why did we lose?
- Turnovers – 26. This is an ongoing issue that I’m hoping in not a tread. Most are mental and statistical (tipped balls can be counted as turnovers).
- Personal Fouls – 25. We sent Kentucky to the line 33 times for 22 points (66%). Good thing they couldn’t shoot from the line. The Dawgs also fouled out 3 players and all big men.
