If you consider yourself a Kentucky basketball fan. It’s probably the best Gillispie article I’ve read. Billy just “gets it.”

His former boss, Bill Self, says, “with Billy, the bottom line is that he isn’t there just to win games this year. He’s there to build a championship-caliber program. In order to do that, you have to get everyone to buy into your philosophy. From the very first day, you have to do it your way.”

“On Tuesday, even though the game was already in hand, Kentucky’s Derrick Jasper dove across the hardwood to corral a loose ball with 10 seconds remaining.

As he watched on television thousands of miles away in Mantua, Utah, Josh Johnston clapped his hands, turned to a friend and said: ‘They’ve got it. They’ve figured it out.’ “

” ‘He might be pretty critical on the court sometimes,’ Johnston said, ‘but it’s to make you better – not to break you down. Once you understand that you won’t have a problem playing for him at all.

‘He genuinely cares about his guys, all of them. I wasn’t a starter but I got treated the same way our stars did. He’ll stick up for you. I guarantee that if you called him right now and started saying bad things about me, he’d be ready to fight you.’ “

That was also a good one…


Man, Billy Gillispie is awesome. He has taken Kentucky from a soft, confused, injury-riddled group and turned them into a tough, smart(er), and still hurting but slowly getting more healthy, scrapping team.  He’s done it without compromising any of his coaching principles, even when the pressure on him was intense.  He believes in outworking every team on the schedule and playing as hard as you possibly can for 40 (or 50, if you have to–Vandy) minutes…not 39, not 38.  He believes in get-up-in-your-jersey man-to-man defense the entire game.  And he hasn’t changed any of that from Day 1, even when it would have been easier and gotten some people off his back if he did so.  Billy has a long-term plan for the team, and he won’t waver from it (sounds like another current UK coach, Rich Brooks…look where the Kentucky football team is now).

It was looking ugly earlier in the season with losses to Gardner-Webb and San Diego at home. After the win over #5 Tennessee last night, the future for this season is much brighter. Now, the Cats defend Rupp Arena like their lives depend on it. And I love it.

Anytime you can make Bruce Pearl sad, it’s a good thing.catswinwin.jpg
