Yes it was obvious Ky won the game with their guard play..Stokes and Maymon played well enough that the Vols could have won..Ky did not have a player Barton could match up with ..he is a better defender than Golden ..but he was over matched in this game..

I'm guessing no foul was called on the play made in the above photo.

Of course not. It's Rupp Arena Jake.

Wish we could recruit just 1 guard like KY has. Our guard play was pathetic. We miss Golden a lot more than I thought we would.

Funny how that goes! In his way, Golden was an enigma to me and many other people. He clearly had stuff going on that most of us never suspected, and that must have taken a lot of mental/emotional energy out of him. He was also hurt off and on which hurt his quickness and conditioning. But every once in awhile, he would just take over a game and will a victory. I hoped a combination of Barton and McRae would produce such a "gamer" performance when needed, but they have lacked that much of the year. And he nearly always rang the bell at the line late! Another thing the Vols could have used more of yesterday!
