James Young hosts this week’s edition of This is Kentucky Basketball. The episode starts off showing Josh, a kid from the “Make-A-Wish” foundation that got to spend a couple days with the Cats last week. This is the same video that was recently featured on Kentucky Wildcats TV’s YouTube page.
The first featured game this episode is the February 22nd game against LSU in Rupp. We get to see UK highlights of the game synced up to the Tom Leach radio broadcast followed by Coach Cal’s post game thoughts to the team in the locker room.
Coach Cal’s recent mailbag episode is also shown, where Cal answers the following questions from fans:
Can you explain your zone defense? It almost looks like a 1-3-1 zone.
Does this team remind you of Brandon Knight’s team with regard to their progress?
What’s up with Dominique Hawkins? He hasn’t played much since he fell in the Missouri game.
James Young answers a few fan questions that were asked using the #AskACat Twitter hashtag. The questions include:
What current or former NBA player is your game similar to?
What has been your favorite part of being at UK so far?
What are some of your favorites songs to warm up to?
Who’s your all-time favorite NBA player?
What’s your favorite shot? An open three or a layup in traffic?
Next up, Coach Robic takes us through another edition of “Inside the Play” where he breaks down what UK did at Ole with their offense against the 2-3 zone.
This week’s “Meet a Wildcat” features Alex Poythress. We learn that Alex didn’t jump for the NBA last season because after talking with his family he thought coming back would be the best decision. He chose jersey #22 because it was his dad’s number, and both he and his twin sister grew up wearing #22. Alex would like to make a guest appearance on the Walking Dead TV show. His go to song is anything with a nice beat. He would like to play Kevin Hart in a game of H-O-R-S-E. Finally, if he were the President for a day, he would like to institute a “free movies” law.
The second featured game this episode is the February 27th game against Arkansas in Rupp. We get to see Coach Cal’s pre-game locker room thoughts to the team and we once again get to see UK highlights of the game synced up to the Tom Leach radio broadcast.
