demarcus-alabama Please accept my sincere apology for leaving you hanging last night and making you go to bed (or insult each other in the comments section) without a full recap.  For reasons beyond my control, I was unable to do so.  As a peace offering, please accept these post-game quotes courtesy of UKAthletics.com. Eric Bledsoe On what could have been better in tonight's game... "We could have played better defense. I let my guy get past me to the basket too much. We got turnovers because we were careless with the ball. John (Wall) and I were not careful with the ball and that is how we let it go so many times." On being frustrated when teams slow them down ... "It is really frustrating. I think we are getting worn down. Everybody is starting to look like they are really tired. We need to start resting because we have a tournament coming up soon. We still have to play hard because every team is still coming at us hard. We still have plenty of games left." On fighting through exhaustion of a longer season ... "We have to play harder. We usually do not play this many games except in the AAU circuit. Those games are in the summer when we do not have school. We have to start focusing on school and then basketball." John Wall On how the team played tonight ... "We played alright. Alabama played good. Coach told us coming in that they were a team that would play you close. They made a good run, but we always find a way to keep going and get the win. We came out with a tough win today." On if coach Calipari took him out early because of the turnovers ... "Yes, and I am glad that he did. I was not being strong with the ball like I am supposed to. That is one of the key things that I need to work on more and not turn the ball over much. That is what I did in the first half today." On all the rebounds he had ... "I don't know, that came out of nowhere. It is the first time this year I have rebounded like that. With DeMarcus (Cousins) and Pat (Patterson) down there, it is tough to get a lot of rebounds." Patrick Patterson On DeMarcus (Cousins) and Daniel (Orton) getting lots of playing time together... "I do not mind it. I am fine with it. Coach Calipari has been talking about that all year. He has told me I have to find ways to get them playing time together. So far whenever they have been in the game at the same time they have played well and fed off of each other's energy. I am perfectly fine with them both getting more minutes, even if they are my minutes." Coach Cal on the team's effort last night... Eric Bledsoe talks about the "frustrating" slow pace... Johnny John talks about last night's win....
