UT’s Stokes Plans To Win At UK (Someday)

On Tuesday night, top-ranked Kentucky suffocated Tennessee 69-44 at Rupp Arena.  The Vols’ prized freshman, Jarnell Stokes, was held to just 4 points and 6 rebounds in 23 minutes of action.

Stokes’ took the beatdown to heart:

“It definitely made me more hungry.  I definitely wanted to win.  If anything, I want to win at Rupp Arena.  I plan on winning, before I leave, at Rupp Arena.  I’m saying that on the record right now.  It made me more hungry and made me dislike Kentucky more.”

Stokes picked Tennessee over Kentucky during the battle for his services, but many UK faithful believe he would’ve wound up in Lexington if the Cats had had a scholarship to offer.  That “dislike Kentucky more” quote doesn’t seem to jive with that theory.

As for Stokes’ goal of winning in Lexington… good luck, kid.  The Wildcats are a sizzing 474-60 all-time at Rupp.  Since the building opened in 1976, Tennessee has won there on just four occasions: ’77, ’79, ’99, and ’06.

Stokes may indeed dislike Kentucky, but his odds of beating the Cats on their home floor are long.
