NASHVILLE — During the postgame press conference after Friday’s loss to Vanderbilt, Kentucky freshmen Archie Goodwin and Willie Cauley-Stein were asked to make a case for UK still being in the NCAA Tournament.
Here’s what they said — and see if you agree or disagree.
Goodwin:”I feel that we definitely have the talent and we have a good wins against quality teams and, you know, some of those games we were right in there with the teams. We lost the game. We’re a team that’s going to compete. It’s just a lot of us doing it every day. Once we can figure out to where we can continue to compete game after game, then things — that will be even better than they are, but until we figure that out, man, nothing is going to change.”
Cauley-Stein: “I mean, we beat three ranked teams, Florida, Ole Miss, and Missouri, and Missouri is in it, so I don’t see, you know, we can’t compete, either. This is a matter of getting our stuff together.”
