Let’s put it this way, I enjoyed doing my research for this post.Saying all of that, the only extraordinary trait I found Rhett to possess compared to any other mascots or regular terriers was his name.The Cats came out of the gate a bit sluggish, perhaps hung over on fresh pineapple juice, jet lagged, or just frozen from the cold tundra that is a Lexington winter.Whatever the case the Cats couldn’t pull away from the Boston Terriers early before mounting an 18-3 run to start the second half to bust it wide open.Enter the Boston University Terriers, the homecoming cupcake for our wildly talented Kentucky basketball team.
It does not remind me of anything basketball or athletics related what so ever.
Terrence Jones added 18 points and 10 rebounds, Harrellson got another double double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, Doron Lamb added 13 points and 5 assists.
The Cats shot 59.3% from the field, going 10-16 from deep for 62.5%.
Most of the ones I have seen in person have that black and white pattern and are a little testy.
One part of their history that does not shoot a chill up your back if you are going to play basketball against one is their nickname, “American Gentleman”.
