If seeking help from the Wizard of Oz, Kentucky would look for brains and heart.
“It seems like we don’t care,” guard Michael Porter said after Mississippi State beat UK 66-57 Tuesday night. “We’re not playing with any heart or desire.”
Big man Patrick Patterson said the Cats discussed such shortcomings in a “huge confrontation” in the locker room.
“People said what they felt like they wanted to say,” Patterson said. “… We exchanged words in a heart to heart. We said things that needed to be said.”
Many players spoke, Patterson said, “even people who didn’t play (against Mississippi State).” All the while, UK Coach Billy Gillispie sat back and listened, Patterson said.
