Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua is always a positive person and it’s no surprise he had an optimistic outlook on the extra work sophomore Alex Poythress has been putting in during his recent slump.

“Alex has continued to work, and that’s the only way that … Willie got himself out of his little couple-of-games rut by working through it, and Alex is doing the same,”Antigua said. “We hope that he’ll continue to put that work in and that he’ll see the results of the work he previously had done and was having success with.

“It’s a little bit up and down, and the season is that way. You’ve just got to kind of manage those. Can’t be too high, can’t be too low. Just keep working through the process in between.”

    Opposing teams have seen enough of those back door oops to Poythress, they are now cutting them off. He will still get them, just not as frequent. Will need to create offense other ways.

    Alex & Willie, have a Direct Impact on the Team Winning a National Championship….If these two, have consistent AGGRESSIVE GAMES, in Defense and Offense we will make the Final Four. And, as we know, from there the Dream of #9, is in reach !
