Rachel Lawson has gotten to know Nikki Sagermann well over the last two years.

So well, in fact, that Lawson can usually tell when her sophomore third baseman is primed for a good night.

"If she's comfortable and she's balanced and she's seeing the ball, you know you're going to get a good performance out of her through the entire game," Lawson said. "So I felt great about her from the get-go."

But through her first two at-bats against Arkansas on Friday night, Sagermann had only a walk and a hard-hit lineout to show for her coach's belief. Still, when she stepped to the plate to lead off the sixth inning in a 3-3 game, Sagermann was confident.

"I was seeing the ball really well and she got behind in the count," Sagermann said. "So I knew she had to come with something fat and I just jumped on it."

Ahead in the count, Sagermann capitalized, driving a 2-0 offering from Arkansas starter Sydney Wright over the fence in right center and propelling No. 8 UK (37-8, 11-5 Southeastern Conference) to a 4-3 win.

"She's just seeing the ball really well," Lawson said. "She's locked in, she's playing good team softball and it's coming a lot easier to her right now. Nikki's a great player for us and that's what she does well. Hopefully she'll keep it going."

Sagermann sustained the momentum she built last Sunday, when she hit two home runs in UK's sweep-clinching win at Ole Miss. The second of her homers came in the 10th inning, starting a seven-run rally.

Her three home runs in two games -- and back-to-back game winners -- are making her slow start to 2014 a distant memory. At the start of SEC play, Sagermann was batting .184 with just one home run. Now, she has nine homers, it batting .270 and has RBI in 11 of her last 15 games.

"It could be seeing more pitches because at the beginning of the year it's been a while since we've seen live pitching," Sagermann said. "But honestly I don't like thinking of the beginning of the season because obviously they're not great memories. I like to remember the good ones."

Lawson still remembers the slow start, but she's glad Sagermann has it going now.

"I hope she doesn't make it a habit over the next two years," Lawson said, "but what's important is once SEC play started, she's done a great job for us. She's a gamer, she really understands pitchers, she understands the game, she understands how to be a hitter and I think she's one of the better hitters in the league."

Starting the game similarly to the way Sagermann started her season, UK fell behind Arkansas 3-0 due to some sloppy defense and quiet bats. The Cats, however, capitalized on two Razorback errors to score three runs in the bottom of the fifth.

"What I liked is we put ourselves in a hole early with our poor defensive plays, but the team was able to stay focused, stay in the game," Lawson said.

Helping the cause was sophomore Kelsey Nunley, who excelled in an unfamiliar Friday-night bullpen role. Nunley (18-4) replaced Meagan Prince to start the fourth inning, pitching four shutout innings and allowing just one hit.

"She was throwing the ball hard," Lawson said. "She had command of all of her pitches. She looked good and you could tell. Arkansas is a great hitting team. They average seven runs a game. So the fact that she could come in here and shut them out really says a lot about her performance."

Nunley's performance kept UK in it until the sixth inning, when Sagermann stepped in fairly certain something good was about to happen.

"I just can tell when I'm seeing it and when I'm not," Sagermann said.

Kentucky's frontcourt seems to get longer and deeper by the day.

Days after Willie Cauley-Stein decided to come back for his junior season, Marcus Lee followed suit. The 6-foot-9 forward will bypass the NBA Draft and return to UK for his sophomore year, UK announced.

"I've really enjoyed my college experience and I'm looking forward to continuing to develop as an all-around player," Lee said in a release. "Playing in the Final Four was such an amazing feeling, but I want to come back and help win that final game this year."

Lee averaged just 2.4 points and 1.4 rebounds, battling an illness that dropped 15 pounds from his already slender 215-pound frame, but reminded everyone of his talent after Cauley-Stein went down with a left ankle injury in the Sweet 16. The athletic Antioch, Calif., native and McDonald's All-American had 10 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in the Elite Eight against Michigan, including four memorable put-back dunks in the first half.

On the strength of that performance and his potential, Chad Ford told Kyle Tucker of the Louisville Courier-Journal Lee would have been drafted had he entered his name.

"I'm excited for Marcus and think he's barely scratched the surface of what he's capable of," head coach John Calipari said.  "In addition to his athleticism and the energy level he brings, the experience he gained in the NCAA Tournament this year will be immeasurable for us next season."

Lee would go on to play key minutes in the Final Four, scoring four points and blocking a shot in the national semifinals against Wisconsin.

With Lee officially in the fold, UK's post play for 2014-15 projects to be even stronger. With draft decisions from Julius Randle, Dakari Johnson and Alex Poythress -- as well as guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison -- still on the way, Coach Cal already has forwards Cauley-Stein, Lee and Derek Willis to work with. In addition, five-star freshmen Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles have already signed letters of intent.

NCAA Banquet | 8:50 p.m. CT
We just returned to the hotel after a great banquet in downtown Birmingham with the rest of the teams at this year's championships. The dinner had a great view of the city, and we were able to enjoy the end of a beautiful day outside, mingling with everyone before dinner. After dinner, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, a Birmingham native, performed. It was a great event to kick off a fun next few days here with the nation's best collegiate gymnasts.


Off to Birmingham | 11:45 a.m. ET

We are officially on the road to Birmingham, Ala., for the 2014 NCAA Gymnastics Championships. The travel party includes senior Audrey Harrison, head coach Tim Garrison, assistant coach Mary McDaniel, trainer Jake Smith and myself, Charlie Healy, the team's media relations director. The drive is expected to take about six and a half hours, and upon arrival in Birmingham, we will all go to the NCAA Championship banquet, with the other teams and individuals competing this weekend. Assistant coach Chuck Dickerson, along with many of Audrey's teammates, will join us on Friday.

Barker_FacebookTwitter1.jpg Drew Barker was only a junior in high school, but he had a pretty good idea how the recruiting process would play out.

Even though the Burlington, Ky., native was listening to his home state school's pitch from new head coach Mark Stoops, Barker figured he would end up elsewhere.

On April 13, 2013, Barker reached a "turning point."

"I remember going into the spring game last year and I was pretty sure South Carolina was my leader and Tennessee and Kentucky were kind of behind," Barker said. "And then I went to the spring game and I saw over 50,000 people there and just the atmosphere."

The rest, as they say, is history.

Less than a month after his visit for the annual Blue/White Spring Game -- attended by a record 50,831 fans -- Barker announced his commitment. Kentucky had its prized quarterback prospect and the momentum Stoops and his staff were building with their work on the class of 2014 went from snowball to avalanche.

"It was really eye-opening to me and all the recruits that were there because I know the majority of the recruits that were there ended up committing to us," Barker said. "So I think that had a big impact on not only myself, but everybody else that went."

Count Mikel Horton in that group as well.

The four-star running back out of West Chester, Ohio, was on the verge of committing and coming to the spring game pushed him over the edge. He gave his pledge exactly a week later.

"The atmosphere was ridiculous," Horton said. "Having that amount of fans there and especially there with my family and friends to show them that this is where I'm going to be playing and this is where I'm going to be scoring my touchdowns and getting long runs and helping out the team. It was a very humbling, life-changing experience for me as far as football. It made me appreciate it more."

For Horton, there was no substitute for getting a sneak preview of game day in Commonwealth Stadium.

"Oh man, just the college atmosphere," Horton said. "The fireworks, the screaming and the hitting and everything. I was shocked and wanted to be a part of that so much."

Dorian Hendrix had a unique perspective on the day of the spring game. Having committed three weeks prior, the linebacker from Huber Heights, Ohio, was playing recruiter, trying to convince his fellow visitors to join him at UK.

"That was actually a really important day," Hendrix said. "There were a lot of guys there who are committed to us now who weren't committed at the time. They came and they saw that same energy, that same excitement and that made them want to be a part of this whole thing. I talked to some guys and got them on board and that was a good day for UK."

In the two months after the spring game, Stoops secured 12 new commitments. All told, 20 of the 28 players who eventually signed with Kentucky attended the spring game.

"Just everything from the Cat Walk to being on the field before the game, we were sitting there, everybody's talking, like, 'Man, this is awesome,' " Barker said. "If they're doing this coming off a 2-10 season, imagine if we all come here and get a recruiting class to join everybody else who is here and start winning, imagine the support that would then come.' We were just talking about that and we thought it would be really big and that was definitely a big turning point for myself and my recruitment."

A year later, Barker, Horton and Hendrix will again be at the spring game on April 26 at 3:30 p.m. ET, but this time as players. The trio is among seven midyear enrollees who arrived on campus in January.

"I'm really looking forward to actually being on the field as a player with that kind of atmosphere," Barker said. "So it's definitely going to be awesome and I'm just blessed to have the opportunity to come in here early and have that opportunity to get on there before an actual game."

Due to construction, Commonwealth's capacity will be reduced to around 40,000, meaning last year's record attendance won't be threatened and UK is unlikely to rank in the top six nationally in attendance again. Nonetheless, a packed house would be a big deal for the players who will be uniform and those who could be a year from now.

"It's huge," Hendrix said. "It's huge for recruitment. It's huge for us. It lets us know that this community and this school are supporting us. It's huge for recruitment. You got guys coming from down south and everywhere across the country coming to see this game and they see 40,000 in the stands, it's important."

Horton, asked of the impact fans can have by attending the spring game, had an even more direct message for the Big Blue Nation.

"Why not get a ticket?" Horton said. "I'm not going to boast on UK. I'm not going to tell people something that they've heard and it has not changed, but we're a different team. And that's coming from my soul. That's coming from deep in and I wouldn't lie to the fans. We're a different team. The mentality, the physicality here is totally different.

"For this spring game, you need to get a ticket because you're going to see something different."

Tickets for UK's annual Blue/White Spring Game are available now online at Ticketmaster.com, by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 and in person at Ticketmaster outlets in Kentucky. Tickets are free, but there is a minimal service charge attached.

Part one

Sky-high expectations at Kentucky pre-date the arrival of John Calipari.

Regardless of the number of returning starters, the number of high school All-Americans or the strength of the nation's collective college basketball talent, Kentucky fans dream of watching their team cut down the nets after the last game of the season.

Expecting greatness is as much as part of being a UK basketball fan as listening to Tom Leach with the call and donning Big Blue gear for each game. But the 2013-2014 season carried with it elevated expectations, even by Kentucky standards.

With a roster stacked with what some experts claimed to be the most talented and deep recruiting class in college basketball history, Kentucky fans could best be described as giddy as the summer sun faded in 2013 into fall, and the sweet sound of bouncing basketballs reverberated off the walls of the Joe Craft Center.

Things, of course, didn't go as planned as far as the expectations were concerned. UK lost far more games than many had predicted or hoped, and freshmen, as they often do, struggled.

But as we all came to learn during the magical run in the postseason, it was those losses and that adversity that made the season so special. Those trying times tested the Cats, made them stronger and came to define their gritty resolve when the season mattered most.

So, in one last reflection on an unforgettable season, we're looking back at the defining moments of the 2013-14 season. The story will come in three parts, all in chronological order.

Below is part two. You can read part one here.

4. Humble pie at LSU

After losing at North Carolina, Kentucky reeled off eight wins in nine games, rising to No. 11 in the Associated Press Top 25. A trip to Baton Rouge, La., would bring the team and its fans crashing back to earth.

Led by Johnny O'Bryant's 29 points - on 12-of-20 shooting -- and nine rebounds, the Tigers flat-out dismantled the Cats in nearly every aspect of the game. LSU outshot UK 50.8 to 43.8 percent; the Tigers had 11 turnovers to UK's 13; LSU had 15 assists to UK's eight; LSU had 11 steals to UK's six; and the Tigers recorded 11 blocks to UK's four.

Freshman stud Jordan Mickey terrorized the Cats with his athleticism, scoring 14 points to go along with six rebounds and five blocks, and Christian County product Anthony Hickey had his way at the point guard spot, dishing out six dimes versus zero turnovers.

The Tigers maintained a double-digit lead throughout most of the second half, stretching the lead to as many as 15 points on two occasions. Only a late-game letup by the Tigers allowed UK to make the final score respectable to those who didn't watch the carnage.

"We weren't ready for the physical part of the game," Calipari said after the 87-82 loss. "We weren't ready for the energy of the game and the viciousness of the game. They beat us to every 50-50 ball from the beginning of the game to the end. That is why they won the game."

Even though clearly upset with his team, Coach Cal wanted everyone to know that his squad was not finished growing.

"This team is in progress; it is all about the process," Cal said.  "The process we are at right now is, will we have the mental toughness to break through and be the kind of team we want to be? We didn't show it tonight."

But panic was beginning to set in among the fan base that the disappointing 2012-13 season was about to repeat itself.

5. Spiraling out of control

After the uninspiring effort at LSU, the Wildcats won seven-of-eight games, including solid wins against a good Ole Miss team, an impressive road victory over Missouri and the overtime triumph against LSU. All appeared to be defining moments - at the very least, turning points - in the season, but as is often the case with a team chock full of rookies, the good times didn't last.

Arkansas paid a visit to Rupp Arena on Feb. 27 and showed the Cats what it means to play defense, as the Razorbacks held UK to 26 made field goals on 76 shots (34.2 percent). Additionally, the Hogs forced 18 UK turnovers, and while committing 20 miscues themselves, Arkansas capitalized on the Cats' mistakes by outscoring UK 21-17 in points off turnovers.

The celebration after the overtime win against LSU looked like it was going to the be the start of a turnaround, but things were about to get much worse before they got better for the 2013-14 Wildcats.

(Chet White, UK Athletics)
In victory, Arkansas connected on 16-16 free throws, while the Cats struggled from the stripe making only 12-22 attempts. Midway through the first half, as if to affirm its terrible shooting night, UK missed eight consecutive shots, allowing the Razorbacks to build an-11 point lead.

UK battled back, though, and the tightly contested contest, which went into overtime, saw the Cats lead 57-52 with 4:43 left in regulation. But from that point forward, including the overtime period, the Hogs outscored the Cats 19-10 on their way to a 71-67 Rupp Arena win (Arkansas' first victory in Rupp since February of 1994).

"They beat us to loose balls," Coach Cal lamented after the game. "We missed 10 one-foot shots. We missed all free throws that mattered. We have a lead late, we're leaving timeouts (and) not executing. At one point I sat down and I would not speak to them. What are we running? 'I already told you in the timeout.'"

Kentucky's trip to South Carolina a few days later revealed a Big Blue ship quickly taking on water.

The Gamecocks came into the game sporting a 10-18 record, reason enough for Kentucky fans to believe their Cats would right the seemingly sinking ship, thwarting disaster. But UK did not respond to the bump and grind play of Carolina, instead the Wildcats sunk deeper into the abyss by once again failing to find the net with anything resembling consistency.

Making only 26.9 percent of its shots from the floor during a physical contest that was so frustrating that the Cats' coach was tossed from the ballgame, UK fell behind 51-39 with 10:23 remaining.

UK's huge 46-28 rebounding advantage could not offset the unfortunate shooting night the Wildcats experienced, and after a Randle 3-point play made the score 68-67 Carolina with 21 seconds remaining, the Gamecocks made their free throws and pulled out an improbably 72-67 shocker.

In coming back from 16 points down with 10:11 remaining, the Wildcats displayed a willingness to battle. But putting themselves in that position in the first place was Cal's cause for concern.

"After the game I told them how proud I was that they fought and got back in the game and gave themselves a chance to win," Calipari said. "But I said, 'You have to play the whole game that way.' Now, what happened early: The game was called like the old way. It was very physical -- body-checking, hip-checking -- and we thought that was an excuse to miss shots. You've got to know how the game is being called and play that way."

The setback dropped the preseason No. 1 team in the land to No. 25 in the AP poll. And yet, Aaron Harrison said after the game that Kentucky would still write "a great story."

As well all know now, that was the defining quote of the season. It seemed so unlikely at the time, but it somehow came true.

6. Starting fresh

After the late-season losses to Arkansas, South Carolina and a disastrous game in Gainesville, Fla., against Florida, Kentucky fans were not expecting much good to come out of the Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Cats were in a historic free-fall, certain to land with a disappointing thud.

But running onto the Georgia Dome floor from the locker room, the Wildcats possessed a bounce in their step unseen for at least a couple of months. Was it "The Tweak" Coach Cal had talked about earlier that week? Was it just the fresh start of a new season?

Whatever the case, the energy the players exuded was palpable, as the team seemed bound together by an electrified tether.

The free-flowing Wildcat mojo was replaced with an "uh oh" once the game began, as the Tigers shot out to a 22-14 lead after seven minutes of action. This game, though, would be the beginning of something special as the Cats rode the hot hand of Young and his 17 first-half points to a 28-10 run, eventually taking a 42-32 halftime lead.

The second half, though, would test the Cats -- again.

Cutting the lead to 52-49 on an Andre Stringer layup with 11:56 left in the game, LSU was poised to break the Cats' back once again. But this time, UK responded in rousing fashion.

Over the last 12 minutes of the contest, Kentucky's freshman crushed the Tigers 35-18 on its way to a resounding, confidence-building 85-67 victory.

The Cats, at least for one game, put it all together, as Andrew Harrison dished eight assists (thanks to the tweak, which Coach Cal said was to encourage UK's point guard to look to pass more often), Randle posted a double-double with 17 points and 16 boards, and Young led the squad with 21 points to go along with six rebounds and four assists.

"We've been through adversity all season," Randle said after the game. "It was kind of time for us to grow up, man up and just fight through that adversity."

Apparently simplifying the UK offense, Cal seemingly took the pressure off of his players.

"We didn't run as many plays because we had to get easy baskets," Young said. "(We're) just playing basketball, something we should have been doing for a while, and something we're going to do from here on out."

The Cats had the set the stage for a postseason to remember.

Check back next for the final defining moments of the 2013-14 season.

Defense gets it done at 11th spring practice

| No TrackBacks | Add a Comment
Head coach Mark Stoops


Before a break over Easter weekend, UK took the field for the 11th time this spring.

After stringing together a number of good practices, UK's offense took a small step back. Even so -- and particularly with the defense continuing to shine -- it was a productive Friday.

"Good energy from the defense, again, we need the offense to continue to progress," Stoops said. "Today was not our sharpest day, but we got a lot of good work in and looking forward to wrapping it up here next week and getting some good practices in next week to finish off spring."

With a handful of drops and some missed opportunities on first down during UK's team period, the offense found itself behind the chains too often. Some of the blame for that goes to the offense, but the defense also deserves credit.

"Defense made some good plays," Stoops said. "I think it's a combination, and we'll go watch the film. But it's not always, and that's what I told the defense, we had good energy and they're playing good, but it's not always because we're playing stellar. Maybe the offense is not executing like they can. It's a little combination of both."

D.J. Eliot, only considering his defense, was pleased.

"I wouldn't say spectacular, but we did some good things today," Eliot said. "We had good energy in the team period. Guys were flying around in that period, and that's good. We didn't execute early and just picked it up throughout practice."

The defense was again without Nate Willis. Stoops announced on Friday the senior cornerback will undergo surgery to address a sports hernia, which will force him to miss the next three-to-four months.

"It's always hard when you have an injury and you got to be out, because you miss all those reps," Eliot said. "That frustration sets in, but you always got to look at things on a positive note. He knows that he'll be back in time for the season, so he just has got to get the mental reps until then, and then when he comes back, he's just got to be clicking on all cylinders."

In Willis's place, Cody Quinn, Fred Tiller and J.D. Harmon have gotten the majority of the work at corner.

"So we're just kind of rotating them, and different days different guys do different things good and bad," Eliot said. "It's a long ways away, so it's tough to tell who's gonna be our guys."

Stoops hopes to make progress toward decisions at corner, as well as a number of other positions, over the final week of spring. He cited running back, defensive line and wide receiver, but quarterback is of course the position drawing the most attention.

Sorting out remaining contenders Patrick Towles, Reese Phillips and Drew Barker is among Stoops' foremost priorities heading into next Saturday's Blue/White Spring Game.

"If we can figure it out in the last week, we will," Stoops said. "If not, we'll continue to work through it. We have time until our first game, but I like the progress we've made overall. We need to pick it up again next week and finish off this spring. Just overall improvement, continue to build depth."

Defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot
