Willie Cauley-Stein said film proved that Arkansas was ‘punking’ us


Freshman Willie Cauley-Stein thought Kentucky was playing with the energy it needed at Arkansas Saturday. Film study showed how wrong he was.

“During the game you don’t feel like you were playing the way everybody was saying we played but then when you go back on film you can definitely see that (Arkansas) was playing with more intensity, playing tougher. They was punking us,” said Cauley-Stein Wednesday as he looked back on the 13-point road loss. “You see that in film and you’re like you don’t want that to ever happen again. You just kind of have to approach it like that.”

Kentucky gets a chance to take a different approach tonight when it plays at Georgia. A win would assure UK of being no worse than a No. 3 seed in the upcoming Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Cats also need a win to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive.

“At the end of the day you’ve got to like get past that point like where we’re running out of time, and you’ve just got to take it day by day and get your work in and approach the game like it is your last game,” Cauley-Stein said. “This is going to be our last game. You’ve got to think about it like that. You could potentially have three more games, besides the SEC Tournament, but even then your games are limited and if you want to end it like that fast then that’s the choice you talk about. We control our own fate.”

    When a player has to look at the film to know they were really getting slapped around is a sad commentary, especially since Coach Calipari, and all the talking heads have been pointing that out all season long.

    I thought the same thing, Professor. If they didn’t feel it during the game, I’m not sure they were even present for the game, emotionally and mentally.
    That being said, Go Cats! You can do it!

    as i’ve said all year this team does not pass the eye test / they are soft / when the game demands a fight they can’t respond /


    The guys will respond tonight. Kats by 5 in a dog fight! !

    I’m sorry, but I know when I am giving complete effort and when I’m not. I don’t need a film to show me. I have never understood how anyone could give less than total effort and attention, when playing against an opponent, especially when you know that they think beating you will make their season.

    All that needs to be said at this point is “GO CATS!”
