Cats playing with “chip on our shoulder”

The storyline for tonight’s Kentucky-Davidson game is that No. 12 seed Davidson has a great chance to beat UK and will be playing with a chip on its shoulder against more high profile UK.

“I think as of right now we’re playing with a chip on our shoulder. A lot of people think that they can upset us and we’re the team to beat in the first round,” Kentucky freshman Shai Gilgeous-Alexander said.  “We’ll be more than ready for this game coming up.”

Kevin Knox said Kentucky is used to playing teams that are hyped and have a point to prove against them.

“Every game we play, we play against somebody that’s going to play their best game. It’s not like we’re not used to it. Every game we play it’s with people who have a chip on their shoulder and think they’re better than us,” Knox said.

“We’re going to come out and play like we always play. Come out on top and attack. That’s kind of what we’re used to so that’s how we’ll play tomorrow.”

  1. They better have more than just a chip on their shoulders on Saturday…Buffalo is playing with a railroad crosstie on their shoulders. Buffalo plays hard the whole game. The Cats can move on to the Sweet 16, but only if they play hard and smart from opening tip to the final horn. This team always seems to want to coast and those type of games won’t be found until next December.
