    Yeah a lot of times it's just throw it to them on a wing and let them make a play.

    In fairness he did run Grady in some stuff this year. They'd put him in what they call "the grinder," basically running him through a series of screens along the baseline. But most of what Grady got was in transition when we ran.

    It's interesting that Grady said that stuff about being hurt. Again I'm not taking up for Cal but I did notice that Grady stopped being put in the grinder late in the season. I chalked it up to the fact that teams became determined to take him out. But there's a possibility Grady's injury just made it so that he couldn't run off all that stuff and they were trying to simplify the sets for him.

    It also could explain why he couldn't guard anyone late in the season. He and TyTy both struggled mightily to contain anyone in the last few games and you wonder if injuries might be part of that.

      Oh I know.....just seems like he has been around for awhile

      • It looks like Sharpe might actually return, if so would be the biggest win for UK since Mashburn committed IMO. Would be a a huge boost for program.

        • The only things I've read about Sharpe possibly returning are Twitter chatter, nothing from people who would know. I'll believe it when I see it.

          • I haven't seen a single thing about Sharpe either way this whole time. It appears they have that situation locked up tight. Makes sense: fans aren't going to react well if he leaves, so might as well stay mum.

            Actually check that: I did see one thing, and that was Kyle Tucker's post about Sharpe enrolling in classes for summer and fall. But that didn't really move me because you can always withdraw from classes.

            Have no idea what he'll do. It would obviously be huge for UK if he stayed, and if he doesn't Cal has some serious work to do with the roster.

            • Also, I saw where Emoni Bates is transferring from Memphis.

              Weird. That guy was at one point rumored to be the next LeBron and now he's looking for a team.

              • Seems like there are 20-30 projected top 10 draft picks?? How does that work 😊

                    Can he cover the deep fade? Is he a field corner or boundary?

                      I spit out my drink on that one.

                      • Looks like Oscar may announce his return today. So that's a big one. Or, it could be something general with UK, like uniform announcement, etc. Who knows. Regardless, something good may be happening today according to MJ lol

                          Good to hear. Oscar could go down as one of the all-time greatest Kentucky players and I really hope he has a chance to atone for what happened at the end of last year.

                          Also hope his mom gets to come to Rupp at some point.

                            Actually I will not be surprised if Oscar declares for the draft but doesn't hire an agent. I'd prefer that Sharpe hire an agent when he declares. Otherwise we are still stuck in limbo trying to replace him.

                              I may be wrong, but I thought players could return now even if they hire an agent?

                                I think it may be Sharpe announcing he's coming back to UK. My 2nd guess would be Oscar... Will be announced at 12:15 on ESPN I think
