‘UK Rising’ examines mining
Will throw out first pitch at 6:30 p.m. 3
END OF AN ERA
By Audrey Smith firstname.lastname@example.org
Students will have the opportunity to hear different perspectives on the mining practices in Eastern Kentucky Friday. “Earth Days in the Bluegrass,” which is put on each year by the Office of Sustainability and UK Student Sustainability Council, is a monthlong occasion, with events throughout the month of April aimed at spreading awareness about environmental issues. This year “Earth Days in the Bluegrass” asked the statewide social justice organization Kentuckians For The Commonwealth’s student group at UK to host an event, called “UK Rising,” which will be Friday, April 8, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jessica Barnett, an Integrated Strategic Communication junior at UK, is a member of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth student group. “They wanted to include an event that would deal with social What: UK Rising injustice affect- When: Friday at 5-8 p.m. ing people and Where: North Campus not just issues effecting the Dorm Courtyard land,” Barnett Admission: Free said. “UK Rising” will give students the chance to have a dialogue on their connections to mountain top removal mining, a practice where the top of the mountain is removed so coal can be extracted from inside the mountain. This kind of mining, which is practiced in Eastern Kentucky, has a harmful impact on the residents living around the mountains. Health problems mainly caused by the water contamination this mining practice creates and the destruction of homes and landscape have been the main concerns of environmental activists.

UK researchers host event Conference examines obesity in Appalachia By Melody Bailiff email@example.com
UK researchers will be co-sponsoring a oneday conference focusing on obesity in Appalachia April 21 at the Lexington Convention Center. The conference is open to all researchers, faculty and students interested in the health of the communities of Appalachia. The Appalachian Health Summit is part of a recent initiative to build an Appalachian regional research network. The University of Kentucky, along with cosponsors Ohio State University, Marshall University, University of Cincinnati and the Appalachian Regional Commission, uses these summits as a way to increase the speed of new therapies from academic centers to community practices. In the sixth annual spring conference, researchers chose obesity as the main focus. “Obesity is the underlying factor in numerous diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer,” Dr. Jane Harrison, assistant provost and administrative director at the Center for Clinical and Translational Science, said. “We are looking at all the different pieces related to obesity and disease. We have sessions focused on research networks, how physicians network and how communities network in the process of improving health.” Dr. William H. Dietz, director of the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, will deliver the keynote address at the conference. The conference will also feature different talks and presentations, on topics like social networking for energy balance, obesity and cancer, childhood obesity and research networks and collaborative. Energy balance is the current terminology for burning calories. The health summit will discuss how to maintain energy balance through social networking of person to person and the use of the See OBESITY on page 2

Ryan Smith served on the UK Board of Trustees and the Presidential Search Committee during his two-year term as Student Government president.
A ‘bittersweet’ goodbye Two-year SG president reflects on leadership experience By Becca Clemons firstname.lastname@example.org
Ryan Smith lost by one vote in the Student Government senate elections his freshman year. Then he ran again, and lost again, his sophomore year. “At that point I was thinking, ‘Man, this might not be the right path for me,’” Smith said. The third time, however, he pulled through. Smith was elected student body president in 2009, a position he would hold for the next two years alongside Vice President Kelsey Hayes.
“I always really enjoyed politics,” Smith said, “and I really enjoyed the idea of meeting the different people that make things happen — interacting with those folks, finding out what certain individuals want to see changed, and making that happen.” In addition to being president of the student body, Smith serves on the UK Board of Trustees and Presidential Search Committee, making him a key decision-maker at the university. Smith said serving a trustee has been the best experience for him as SG president.
“I think that the opportunity to talk to those people, to have one-on-one conversations with them, to get to know them on a personal level ... and just that professional experience has been invaluable,” Smith said. He said being a Board member was intimidating at first, and that serving for two years made him especially prepared to make decisions at UK. “I might have looked pretty confident, but I was shaking in my boots — literally,” said Smith, currently sporting a pair of cowboy boots. “To be in a room with those people who have attained so much and done so much for the university and the state … was intimidating at first. It took me almost a whole
year to get to a point where I was comfortable and understood the process.” Board of Trustees Chairman Britt Brockman said Smith brings an air of confidence and maturity to the Board that he has not seen in years from a student representative. “He brings such maturity to his position that he looks at issues from a global perspective while cognizant of the students’ perspective on campus,” said Brockman, who served as SG president in 1981-82. “He certainly is able to look at each of these situations and represent the university’s best interest, no matter what that means.” Smith and Hayes said they See SMITH on page 4
Fundraiser combines Top pianist doughnuts with running hopes to inspire By Kelsey Caudill email@example.com
Hundreds of UK students will exercise and stuff their faces simultaneously on Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium. The second annual UK Habitat Krispy Kreme Challenge 5K is the only local race that requires participants to stop at the halfway marker and devour a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts before finishing the race. The race starts at 10 a.m. Those still interested in participating can register from 8-9:30 a.m. on Saturday. Registration for the Krispy Kreme Challenge 5K is $25 per person. Grand prizes will be awarded to the first place male and female. People of all ages are invited to join the race. UK Habitat Vice President Dan Wavering said there is also a competitive 5K for those who do not want to try the doughnut challenge. Registration fee for competitive runners is $21 per person. The regular 5K is broken down by age groups. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female runners in each cat-
egory. This event is a fundraiser for Lexington Habitat for Humanity hosted by the UK Habitat chapter. This year all proceeds will go toward a build that UK Habitat and the Second Presbyterian Church of Lexington will start on April 15.

Organizers hope a piano recital will inspire musicians and music lovers when they hear an award-winning pianist perform on Sunday. The UK School of Music has brought Arthur Green, an internationally acclaimed pianist, to play in a recital Sunday night at Memorial Hall. Greene is a professor of piano at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Irina Voro, Ph.D., is an associate professor of music and said she coordinated the recital. “It was very hard to get him because he has a really big name and he is a very accomplished pianist,” Voro said. “He performs around the world. We are very lucky.” Voro has been planning his visit for the past three years. She said he was supposed to come two years ago, however it did not work out. “Finally it’s a break through.

The event will start off with three main speakers: Ada Smith, Stanley Sturgill and Martin Mudd. Sturgill and Mudd are both members of “Kentucky Rising.” The group drew a lot of attention to their cause in February when its members staged a sit-in at the Capital Building. The activist group was protesting Governor Beshear’s lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Act and Beshear’s lack of assistance in accomplishing many Kentuckians’ goal of ending

Smith, 23, lives in Whitesburg, Ky. and teaches young people from Appalachia leadership and community organization. She will be telling her story as a young woman living in Eastern Kentucky. Sturgill, a retired coal miner from Lynch, Ky., will share with the audience how coal has impacted his life. Mudd is a Graduate student at UK studying physics; he will be speaking about his experiences as a member in “Kentucky Rising.” Following these speakers, UK students will discuss ideas such as transitioning away from coal and how the mining practices taking place
in Eastern Kentucky are connected to Lexington and UK. Afterwards a table will be set up for students who wish to write out their own stories and experiences involving coal. These stories will then be published in a “zine” and distributed around campus and Lexington for free, Barnett said. “UK students should come to the event to hear different perspectives on the issue and also share their own stories and opinions through the 'zine',” Barnett said. The event also includes a free meal and live music. The meal, to be prepared by UK students, will be vegetarian and made with ingredients mostly grown in Kentucky. “Using local ingredients is a way for students to connect to the people who grow food in Kentucky and the land it comes from,” Barnett said.

By focusing on obesity, we hope to forge effective, collaborative interventions that can help to improve the overall health of Appalachia.” The goal of the summit is to enhance collaboration between researchers in the
region and enhance interaction between community groups and UK researchers. By discussing chronic health issues prevelent in Appalachia, researchers hope ways to prevent these diseases are implemented into the community faster to improve health in Appalachia.

PIANIST Continued from page 1 have artists of such caliber very often at UK,” she said. Greene said he has never been to UK, but performs at universities and colleges often and enjoys meeting students. At the recital, he will perform works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Alexander Scriabin’s Sonatas No. 3 and No. 7. “I’m hoping to convey a sense of lifting someone to a higher level with the music,” Greene said. “That’s the goal of the music — if somebody can penetrate into the music, they can be transcended to a higher level and that’s what I’m trying to do when I play music.” Voro said she is looking forward to hearing the Sonata No. 7, titled, “The
White Mass,” because it is very rarely played. “It has tremendous technical challenges and is overwhelmingly difficult,” Voro said. “That’s another aspect why students will benefit because they will see how someone sits and plays an extremely difficult composition in front of their eyes.” Maris Deddens, a piano performance freshman, said she is attending the recital on Sunday and is excited to hear Greene play. “You can always learn from other pianists, no matter who they are, but he is a world-class pianist,” Deddens said. She said by watching Greene, her and other students can learn from his technique, the sound he makes and how he responds to the audience. “It’s really inspiring to watch a really good pianist play because you see them
and they have so much energy and they seem like they love what they’re doing,” she said. Deddens hopes to expand her knowledge of music by attending. “You can hear things you’ve never heard before and find something new you’d like, which is really important to know,” she said. Voro wants Memorial Hall to be filled and said the audience will not be disappointed. “For students, especially those who are studying piano now, its always inspirational to hear someone who is on the top of the profession in a live setting,” Voro said. “When it’s a live performance, nobody knows what is going to happen … they can observe the master at work.” Greene will be playing April 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. The recital is free and open to the public.

Women’s club soccer soars at UK
PHOTO BY COLLIN LINDSTROM | STAFF
The women’s club soccer team practices on Thursday. Behind the leadership of a new coach, the team hopes to grow in size and experience, as well as to add games to its schedule.
Team made most of limited season schedule By Anna Howard email@example.com
The UK women’s club soccer team won its first national championship in the 2006 season with the hopes of many more to come. During the 2007 and 2008 seasons the team continued its journey and expected to pick up where it left off, but that dream fell short. In 2009, the winning mind set was no different than the previous years as the team went 9-2 in the regular season and 3-2 in the Virginia Tech Club Soccer Tournament, and in 2010 the team was once again made up of
18 girls who all had at least one thing in common — their love for soccer. This season they had a tough time getting games scheduled, and they only played two regular season games versus Northern Kentucky University and Eastern Kentucky University, beating both schools. They ended their season at the Clemson Club soccer tournament in Clemson, N.C., where they played a total of three games. In the first game they beat Clemson, then they tied North Carolina in the second game of the tournament. Finally, their journey ended after a loss to Florida.
“It was fun playing different teams from other big name schools,” freshman Monica Youtsey said. “Even though we lost it was a great bonding experience for our team.” Youtsey joined the team in 2010 after being persuaded by fellow teammate Michelle Bowman, a junior who transferred to UK her sophomore year and joined the team. The UK women’s club soccer team plays on a competitive level, from the jerseys, to their own field, to the tournaments they attend, and to the mentality every other NCAA school has about UK. They still walk
around with a red bulls-eye on their backs. “Everyone always wants to play us and expects so much being our school’s history of being UK,” said defender and president of the UK women’s club soccer Kristin Drealser. Dreasler is a returning sophomore from Quincy, Ill., where she started soccer at 5 years old. She was a two time MVP at her high-school, Quincy Senior High, and while playing for her high school, she also played for a club team for two years. “I have wanted to go to Kentucky,” Dreasler said. “I had opportunities to play at
All of the Final Four teams had doubters all season; for crying out loud, Virginia Commonwealth’s participation in the Tournament was doubtful until the final minutes of Selection Sunday. However, of the four surprise national semifinalists, UK was best equipped to win the championship, at least on paper. Worse yet for the Cats, the team that finally cut down the nets at Reliant Stadium was a poor man’s version of UK (plus a Kemba). The Huskies were led by junior point guard and likely NBA lottery pick Kemba Walker instead of a trio of veterans, like UK, but the parallels between the teams continued to the very last day of the season: two young teams that managed to win early with talent alone, only to hit a midseason snag before recovering with a phenomenal

With Dreasler and Depotola in charge the club has
many new ideas, goals and expectations for the team. For next season they hope to have more home games. Dreasler is striving for the fall 2011 season to have a college club soccer tournament in the mid-west in St. Louis, Mo. If you are interested in joining the team, open practices are this spring and tryouts are in August. At tryouts the team will look for ball skills, fitness, knowledge of the game and a competitive drive. All practices and tryouts take place on their own field near the softball and soccer complex. To get more information on the women’s club soccer team, contact Kristin Dreasler at email@example.com.

After a long wait through the cold winter months, Big Blue Nation will finally get its chance to see Enes Kanter in action for UK — but not where most fans wanted to see him. Kanter will be throwing out the first pitch at the UK baseball team’s series opener with Auburn on Friday, April 8, at Cliff Hagan Stadium, according to a UK release. Kanter’s first pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., the release stated, with the game against Auburn to follow immediately after.
Kanter was the No. 1 center according to Scout.com, and was part of UK’s then-secondKanter consecutive No. 1 recruiting class. He was then found permanently ineligible by the NCAA for money he received playing professional basketball in his native Turkey, and filled a role as an undergraduate student-assistant coach for head coach John Calipari’s squad. He never played in a game for the UK basketball team.

Hacker group hurts more than helps The back-and-forth between Sony and Anonymous is a hindrance ZACH WALTON Kernel columnist
After being embroiled with a lawsuit against hackers for the past few months, Sony is engaged in another fight:vigilante hacker group Anonymous. The same group that staged the Scientology protests and Operation Payback, Anonymous is now targeting Sony for their lawsuit against PlayStation 3 hackers. So far the group has managed to bring down Sony’s websites and the PlayStation Network. They are back up for now, but could be brought down again. Anonymous claims they are sending a message to Sony about the free trade of information. They are wanting to put a stop to the lawsuit Sony currently has against the PlayStation 3 hackers. So far, their demands are simple. They want Sony to allow modification of the PS3‘s software, to end their current legal action against the PS3 hackers and not pursue any more legal action against any collected IP addresses in the case. First, I want to clear up
some myths or misconceptions about Anonymous. It is not a super collective hacker group that doles out justice on the Internet. It is just some random people online who get together for a common purpose who just happen to rally under the Anonymous slogan. There is no consistency to their group, it is just whoever wants to be involved
“The only people who suffer are gamers who are not able to access their favorite games online.” in the current project. Their methods are ultimately harmless and childish. They may bring a website or two down, but no real damage is done against the company. According to an interview with “PlayStation Lifestyle,” the leader of the current Anonymous operation said they will be playing pranks on the Sony executives by ordering random things to be delivered to their door. The real question is what does this all accomplish? I know that people are bitter
about Sony suing hackers and they want freedom of information. That is perfectly understandable. The problem is when they interfere with everyday customers who are just trying to access some game or other service on the PlayStation Network, and they can’t — due to the current actions being taken by Anonymous. Anonymous has said that Sony customers were never their target, but that they are “collateral damage.” This is not a war. These are just some spoiled kids with really high opinions of themselves. Comparing this to a war is not going to get anybody anywhere. Anonymous can’t do anything that will really make Sony pay attention and Sony is not going to back down on their lawsuit. The only people who suffer are those gamers caught in the crossfire who are not able to access their favorite games online. There is some good news in all of this though. If Anonymous follows precedent, they will get bored of fighting Sony and just give up. Anonymous does not have the greatest attention span in regards to these things. I give them at least a few more weeks before they just lose interest. Hopefully this comes sooner than later. I am getting pretty tired of not being able to access the PlayStation Network.

SMITH Continued from page 1 were lucky to serve two terms and doing so allowed them to form better relationships and get more done. “We’ve definitely been blessed to have one, let alone two terms,” Hayes said. “The second term we didn’t have the learning curve that most presidents and vice presidents have to deal with.” Both Smith and Hayes have lived in Kentucky their whole lives; Smith was born in Frankfort, and Hayes in Owensboro. Hayes will join Teach for America after her graduation this year, but Smith said he doesn’t know what his future holds after he receives his Masters in Business Administration next May. “I want to stay in Kentucky,” Smith said. “I love this state, and I want to find a way to make a difference, whether it’s in nonprofit work, or whether it’s in business, or whatever it may be.” Brockman said he is confident that Smith can accomplish whatever goals he sets forth.
DOUGHNUTS Continued from page 1 the Krispy Kreme Challenge 5K. Their son Jacques will blow the air horn at the start of the race. UK Habitat President Joe Tarantino said he hopes this event will raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity and encourage more people to get involved. “What a lot of people don’t know is that Lexington Habitat is quite an outstanding affiliate for our region and they build anywhere from 1520 houses per year,” Tarantino said. “It shows that there’s a lot of work to be done here in our own community.”

“I expect to be reading about Ryan Smith in a history book somewhere, someday,” Brockman said. Smith’s interests drew him to political work; in his early college years, Smith got to travel with President George W. Bush — and he worked for then-Republican Party Chairman Mike Duncan in Washington, D.C., after his sophomore year. “I’ve just tried to put myself in the best position possible. Dr. (Lee) Todd always says, ‘If you don’t know what you want to do, just work hard, just constantly work,’” Smith said. After serving as UK president for a decade, Lee Todd’s administration ends this year. Smith was chosen as one of two student representatives to the Presidential Search Committee, the group that will choose Todd’s successor by the end of next month. Smith said this is one of the biggest decisions he will be part of in his time at UK. He was involved in the naming of the Wildcat Coal Lodge, a Board of Trustees decision that caused controversy across campus. “(It) was a difficult posi-
tion for me because I really value the contributions of Joe Craft; the coal industry has done a lot for the state,” Smith said. “It’s hard because sometimes ... your personal viewpoint conflict with what you’re supposed to do as a representative of the people that you’re serving, and that was an instance in which those two butted heads with each other.” Overall, Smith and Hayes said after their terms, they have no unfinished business. “I can’t say that I’m excited for it to be over, but I’m definitely excited with the work that we’ve done,” Hayes said. “I am excited for Nikki (Hurt) and Micah (Fielden) to experience what Ryan and I got to experience.” Their biggest legacies include the Tally Cats program, Cats Cruiser late-night driving service, and Scholarship Drive. Smith said it has been encouraging to see their ideas come to reality and be successful, but also that all of their successes wouldn’t have been possible without the rest of the SG staff. “It’s been a great run,” Smith said. “(It’s) bittersweet, but we’re ready to move on.”
Wavering said last year about 300 runners signed up for the race and they raised $10,000 for Lexington Habitat for Humanity. He said they’re expecting about 500 runners this year. Meserve, who has been collaborating with UK Habitat to set up the event, said she expects the proceeds to be about the same as last year. Although they received a larger grant from one of the event sponsors, Bike and Build Inc., last year, more participants have signed up this year, Meserve said. Other sponsors of the event are Big Ass Fans, UK Federal Credit Union and Krispy Kreme. Wavering said what
makes this event stand out is that it is different from other fundraising events. “There are tons of fundraising events on campus, but I don’t think there’s any that are as unique as this one,” Wavering said. “We’re combining two things that don’t go together at all.” Meserve said the Krispy Kreme Challenge 5K is a fun way for people to give back to their community. “People think that in order to support Habitat you have to come out to the build site and swing a hammer,” Meserve said, “But this is another way you can get involved and support our mission of providing simple affordable housing.”
Center report stated that “the most common reason that customers give for shopping at community farmers markets is the quality of produce.” According to the United States Department of Agriculture, farmers markets have more than tripled in the United States from 1994 to 2010, from 1,755 to 6, 132, with a 16% increase from 20092010. “Going green and being sustainable has become quite
trendy and it is very important,” Baranowski said “There is a ton of information out there that hasn't been reaching our students as well as we would like it to.” Baranowski said the Farmers MarCat lasts such a long period of time to allow students to visit in-between classes. The event is free for all to attend, but presenters will also selling their products in addition to educating.

In my opinion, the need for human interaction at our age is crucial. That’s why we’re in college. We’re here to interact, savor memories and enjoy the college experience. But why are we so consumed in our own world consisting of breaking bricks, flinging virtual furry animals or “doodle jumping?” We let our phones replace conversation and our Twitter posts constitute as inside jokes. I want to laugh with my friends, not my screen. I will admit, I have been tempted to ignore my parents’ chatter with the occasional brick breaker game (I’m a firm believer in my Blackberry), but their rage because of my silence and vacant stares outweighed my joy of a high score. I now know their frustration.
The Twitter and Facebook phone application also somewhat bother me because unlike the phone games, these have plagued my life. The little “T” on my Blackberry toolbar taunts me whenever a new tweet makes the light on my phone flash red. I know I have things to do, but the obligation to check whatever @Sn00ki or parody account @NotGaryBusey has to say always seems to win. Call me old school, but something about seizing the day speaks to me. I think it’s appropriate to rant about something preventing my friends and me from being as close as we could be. If Twitter is the new-age “windows into our souls,” then take me back to a simpler time, when getting a phone call from a friend was something to be excited about. I’ll find myself staring at my food, drifting off into space and talking to myself in a room full of people because we are so consumed in the cyber world. So either I am much more boring than I would like to think, or our generation needs to seek help. So next time you’re at the dinner table, even with your five roommates you see everyday, I beg of you: put the phone down. You’re doing yourself a favor. And in the end you’ll be getting all three stars in your social life. You can tweet about it later. Genevieve Adams is a journalism sophomore. Email the firstname.lastname@example.org.
SARA NELLE MURPHY, Kernel cartoonist LETTER TO THE EDITOR As a student at UK, I was appalled and completely disgusted by the display outside of Whitehall on Wednesday, April 6, 2011. I found the pictures terribly inappropriate and distasteful and the message conveyed completely lacking class. I understand that the intent behind the display was to shock, but what shocked me the most was that this group was granted permission to post these pictures and messages, which were frankly incorrect, not only in a main part of campus, but in the middle of several class room buildings. These photos and the inaccurate medical information were posted in plain, unavoidable, sight of students on their way to class, whether they wanted to see them or not. They were disrupting and distracting during my studies that day. When I spoke to other students about why this group was granted permission for their location, it came to my attention that, according to the university, this completely tasteless dis-
play, was NOT considered a "demonstration" and was therefore able to set up in the heart of campus. Every person I talked to considered it a demonstration of some sort. It leads one to wonder what the university's agenda was when that judgment call was made. One of the several things that concerned me with this blatant, gruesome display, was that as I walked around campus, I noticed several tour groups full of potential Wildcats and their families. As disturbing as those photos were to college students, it is unacceptable for those photos to be displayed while the university is being shown for future students. It is completely unacceptable for an institution such as the University of Kentucky to allow that kind of blatant misinformation to be spread and to bend university policy for such displays.

UK softball pitchers Chanda Bell (above) and Rachel Riley (below) threw back-to-back perfect games against Austin Peay Wednesday.
Softball’s Bell, Riley throw perfect games By Aaron Smith email@example.com
UK had already made history: the first perfect game thrown in program history, a six-inning, 15-strikeout performance from Chanda Bell. It didn’t wait to do it again: the second perfect game in program history, a five-inning performance, four-strikeout performance from Rachel Riley, came in the second game of a doubleheader. The two UK pitchers combined for 11 straight innings of no baserunners (and a combined 29-0 score) against Austin Peay Wednesday. “I was grinning ear to ear after it happened," said Bell in an interview with UK Athletics’ Eric Lindsey. "And then in the second game I knew that Rachel had a perfect game
CRADDOCK Continued from page 3 UConn relied heavily on contributions from six freshmen this season and UK relied on three freshmen. Both teams had to be patient as the young players adjusted to their learning curve. Jeremy Lamb recounted how UConn head coach Jim Calhoun got him to play “full speed” and nagged him about “staying low” in his defensive stance all season. The Cats’ Lamb also learned to put in defensive effort and prepare for games over the course of the season after the coaching staff called him out for his lack of effort. Those non-existent post presences UK and UConn supposedly shared at the beginning of the season both came up big in March. UK senior forward Josh Harrellson was at his best during the NCAA Tournament, while UConn sophomore forward Alex Oriakhi played a critical
going on so I was getting really excited, especially in the last inning. ... I was trying not to say anything out loud so I wouldn't jinx her." Bell had already thrown two nohitters this year and three in her career, but the perfect game was the first in UK history. Riley provided her own offense as well, going 4-for-4 with 6 RBI in the second game, a 16-0 win that improved UK to 27-7 on the year. Austin Peay (8-27) hits .222 and has a .299 on-base percentage for the year. But against UK, it was blanked for both games. “It feels great," Riley said in the UK Athletics interview. "It's something that not a lot of people can say they've done. It's just cool that everything worked out perfect."
part in limiting Butler to three 2-point field goals Monday night. And, most of all, when everybody in the world ignored these teams’ potential to amount to anything, their coaches never lost faith. “Coach Calhoun was the one person that believed in us when nobody did,” Oriakhi said. Likewise, UK head coach John Calipari told people all season, despite his team’s struggles, that he “liked” his team. Almost a week removed from the Cats’ elimination and instead of dealing with the sight of celebratory couch burnings in Lexington, Calipari and his players must cope with quelling their competitive fire with the knowledge that this year was the perfect opportunity for championship banner No. 8. Calipari said that he wanted to hold the Huskies to less than 60 points. Objective one was completed without issue. But the opportunity to advance to play for a
championship became muddled with poor shooting and a sputtering offense. Trailing at halftime during the title game, Calhoun said that he told his team, “‘We’re just not (being) capable of doing the things, we’re capable of doing.’” UK was a victim of straying away from what it had been so successful at doing, and was capable of doing, in the month leading up to the Final Four. Had the games played out according to the script, the Cats could’ve — and probably should’ve — won it all; that speculation is all for naught now. “We ended up being a good overall team,” said Jeremy Lamb with a piece of the net hanging behind his ear, hugging his championship cap. Most unexpectedly, UK evolved into a good team this year, too. More unexpected was that the Cats simply ended their season in the wrong place.
