Kentucky Players Give Postgame Comments


Here are postgame comments from several members of the Kentucky team following today's 66-60 victory over Georgia (via UKAthletics.com):

#34 DeAndre Liggins, G

On Georgia’s run in the second half ...
“Georgia is a good team. They came out in the second half and made a push like we knew they would, but we were just happy to get the win.”

On his turnover ...
“I made a bad pass and thought Brandon (Knight) was going to be somewhere (and) he wasn’t. I made a mistake and turned the ball over. Afterwards, I got a little frustrated, but it was over with and we squashed it.”

#55 Josh Harrellson, F

On Coach Larry Brown speaking to the team ...
“(He said to me) Keep rebounding and just run the floor. A lot of big men can play, but not all of them can run the floor.”

On playing the full 40 minutes in a game ...
“We played hard for 35 minutes, but the last five minutes we let them come back just like South Carolina. We’re not mature yet, once we become more mature we’ll start playing the full 40 minutes.”

#1, Darius Miller, G

On how much of letting the game get close is freshman mistakes...


“Honestly it isn’t really on the freshmen, it’s all of us, me, Deandre (Liggins) and Josh (Harrellson) included. We have spurts where we play really well, and then there are times where we let down. We have to fix that as a team, not just the freshmen. It has nothing to do with being young because other guys are doing it too.”

On how the team was moving the ball so selflessly against Georgia’s zone defense...
“I think we are becoming a better team. We are playing together pretty well. It is something we work on in practice and really we just try to focus more on it, especially recently, and try to find open shots and work off the dribble for each other. That seemed to work out in the first half today.”

On veterans needing to be leaders down the stretch and why that is not happening...
“It is just something we need to work on. It also has a lot to do with us playing the whole forty minutes and not in spurts, so it kind of rubs off on the younger guys so it is something we need to work on.”

# 3, Terrence Jones, F

On their energy at the beginning of the game...
“We have been working really hard on starting games with energy. It starts with Brandon (Knight), Darius (Miller) and DeAndre (Liggins) brought a lot of energy too.”

On if he felt that they were in trouble in the second half of the game...
“No, we need to play better and take better shots. Just drive to the basket. Once we started doing that late in the game, it was good. wWe just need to make more free throws.”

On their defense against (Trey) Thompkins...
“He is a great player. Today we changed it up, just tried not to let him get in the groove. I just wanted to keep my hands straight up and make shots difficult for him.”

#12 Brandon Knight, G

On the difference between the first and second half...
“I think we just started missing a couple shots. They wanted to make a run. I think we did an alright job sustaining them, but I think we need to do a better job finishing the game.”

On the energy in the second half...
“The first half we came out with a lot of intensity; everybody was playing hard. In the second half, we had a lot of lapses and that could be due to lack of energy.”

On Doron’s (Lamb) game...
“He is a great player. He always steps it up when we need a big time shot.”
