Was there any doubt about Murray’s final 3?

Q. For Jamal and Coach, if it’s okay, that last play, that last big three with about six seconds left on the shot clock, was that how that was drawn up? And was there ever any doubt that that was going in?
COACH CALIPARI: I doubted it was going in, but he didn’t. That’s what’s good about it. Was that for Jamal? I can’t remember what it was.

TYLER ULIS: It was, like, you told me to give it to Jamal, and then you told me go back and get it, and we were like running back and forth.

COACH CALIPARI: Yeah, that was a play we set up.

JAMAL MURRAY: No, it wasn’t.

COACH CALIPARI: At the end of the overtime, so you know, they showed a 2-3 zone, and then they went man to man, and that screwed us up.

Billy coached a great game. He really did.

Tyler’s looking at me, saying, what did you call? I said, they went zone and then they went man. I mean, what do you want me to do?

  1. I like the fight we had in the SEC tournament. Something that we didn’t have during the season.

  2. PHEW!!…that was very close but we did find a way to pull it out. When we went up by 7 I thought we would put it away but we let it slip away. Tyler Ullis is just unbelievable. There may never be another like him and that ok with me. Willis and Murray finally caught on in 2nd half. Briscoe is nasty when he get inside at the rim. A really great win but we have to be able to find a defense if we are going to make a serious run.
