15 Kentucky on Saturday at Coleman Coliseum trying for a strong capper to a week that began with a quadruple-overtime victory at No. 19 SC.
The 90-86 victory was a strong rebound from a home loss to Auburn.
Will No. 15 Kentucky go on the road and hand Alabama a big loss when the two meet in SEC action today at 1PM ET?
"I feel at the end, we got hesitant and were competing not to lose instead of competing to win", Duckworth said. "The team that thinks they're the hunters and the hungry team or that plays on their heels and sometimes act like they don't know what to do or where to go. Hopefully we're a little different team than we were from that game down there". The Tigers managed to narrow their deficit to 10 points, 53-43 with 14:22 remaining, and then the Cats expanded their lead to 25 points over the next 6 minutes, at which time it seemed as though the Cats has chose to put the worst team in the SEC away by a comfortable margin. "She crunched her ankle during floor warmups tonight and we nearly pulled her out, but she said, 'No, I can do this, ' and then went with the double-pike routine and did a great job", Duckworth said. "Hopefully, we're a little different team from that game down there". Throw them into some pick-and-rolls'. Pomeroy sees this game in Kentucky's favor by 7 points 77-70 at a pace of 71 possessions. Defensively, they are allowing 74.3 points per game on the season, but giving up 80.2 on the road. ALABAMA's most impressive win this season has been at #27 SC this past Tuesday by 4 points in 4 overtimes.
Before its win against SC earlier in the week, Alabama found itself with its back against the wall.
"It's unusual for me to tell you that SC got beat to all the 50-50 balls", Calipari said. We're striving to do better and better every meet and I think that's what we're going to do this year. "They got beat to a lot of balls, and that just shows me that Alabama's gonna fight, they're gonna battle".
