While disappointed with the loss today, I could not be more proud of what our guys overcame to even make the tournament. I applaud Joe and Ramel for being warriors in the court.
Now we as UK fans can look forward to the excitement of next season. Coach Gillispie has given us a look into the future of UK basketball and I for one like very much what I see. I am very much looking forward to what it looks like with his guys that he recruits.
Next season I expect:
- A healthy Meeks that is hungry to be a leader.
- A healthy Jasper that is ready to prove he can lead as well.
- A healthy Patterson,"TICKED OFF" from having to sit out post season play.
- A 5* PG ready to showcase his skill to the Big Blue Nation.
- A Mr. Ky. Basketball winner ready to show he is deserving of that crown in front of his home state fans
- A JUCO SF ready to show he was deserving of a D1 scholarship out of high school
- A Big Man that will come in and help almost immediately.
- A "confident and slightly heavier" Stevenson that can bang in the paint a little more.
This loss hurts. I hate it most for our two seniors but at least now we can look to the future for UK anticipation instead of the uncertainty that came with all the off season turmoil surrounding our former coach.
Watch the recruiting board here. I expect fireworks in the very near future, with recruiting news like this.
