Jon Hood commented on last week's road losses during yesterday's media session.
Has the Kentucky sophomore found the losses to be frustrating?
Hood said, "Yeah, it is frustrating. Anytime that you lose it is frustrating, whether it is basketball, a race, board game it doesn't matter. It is frustrating."
How does the team get off the snide after the two closes losses last week?
The sophomore said, "We just have to keep working to start extending those leads in the balance of the game. We don't need to drop six-straight points to a team. We are working on that in practice now."
How about that big shot at the end of the first half in Gainesville on Saturday?
Hood said, "You just have to take it in strides. You still have to worry about the game. We hit the shot to get us back within two points and we have to go to the locker room and talk about what we are going to do in the second half."
The Wildcats fell behind big in the second half of each game last week, then clawed back into the game before losing in the closing moments. Thoughts?
"I mean, there is a satisfaction with being able to come back, but you have to come back and win. You just have to be ready to play," said Hood.
