11/14 Howard W 85-79 Davis & Hinds (19 each) Clark & Coleman (6 each) 1-0 Men Who Speak Up event game. UM trails by 9 at the break, but regroups to out-score Howard by 15 in the second frame. Clark adds 16 points on 8-12 shooting.
11/17 at Harvard W 69-63 Hinds (24) Coleman (12) 2-0 Career-highs in points for Hinds, and rebounds for Coleman. UM led by as many as 15 in the second half, and held on for the road win.
11/19 Central Arkansas W 89-62 Hinds (24) Anderson (12) 3-0 Men Who Speak Up event game. Bears have no answer for UM's 3-point attack. Minutemen tie a program record with 16 makes from deep, led by Hinds with 6 and Clark's 5. Hinds puts up another 24-pt game, and Anderson's 12 boards are a career high.
11/23 vs Clemson W 82-65 Clark & Davis (25 each) Berger (9) 4-0 Men Who Speak Up event game, in Las Vegas. UM hits another 16 from 3, and Clemson never gets into gear. Davis makes a career-best 7 threes (on 10 shots). Hinds adds 21 points. Berger's 9 boards are a career best.
11/25 vs Creighton L 97-76 Davis (19) Coleman (9) 4-1 Men Who Speak Up event championship game, in Las Vegas. UM's 3-point game goes cold (3-16), and dish just 4 assists on the night. Jays hit 9 of 11 FGs in a 5 min stretch in the 2nd half, and 4 of those were 3s. CU's 7 point lead built to 20, and UM never recovered.
12/2 Boston University W 99-69 Clark & Davis (20 each) Coleman & Holloway (7 each) 5-1 UM never trails in the rout of BU. UM shoots 55% to BU's 38%, and UM has another hot night from deep (13-25 from 3). Hinds adds 18 points. New career highs for Holloway (18) and Anderson (12).
12/5 vs Mississippi L 74-64 Clark (24) Coleman (8) 5-2 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Holiday Showcase, at Springfield MA. UM goes nearly 6½ minutes without a field goal in the second half. Tough shooting day for Davis (4-18 FGs), Hinds (0-5), Coleman (1-7). Clark 5-9 from 3, rest of team just 3-17. Berger 14 pts, Holloway 8 & 6.
12/8 at Central Florida L 67-63 Davis (20) Anderson (7) 5-3 UM turns a 15-point deficit into a 4-point lead, but freezes down the stretch, scoring just one basket over the final 5 minutes. UM hoists 30 threes on the night, but hits just 7 (.233).
12/13 at Florida Gulf Coast L 77-76 Hinds (15) Bergantino (7) 5-4 UM overcomes slow start (trailed 12-2), leads late, but gives it back with 10.6 seconds to play. Kellogg doesn't use one of two remaining timeouts to draw up a final play, and team doesn't get a great shot as time expires. Berger scores 14 to tie his career best.
12/16 New Orleans W 103-95 (OT) Davis (40) Clark (8) 6-4 Trey's 40 is just one shy of the UM single game record, but does set a new Mullins Center record. Clark's 30 and Holloway's 13 also help shake off pesky UNO. Photos: Game, Calipari ceremony
12/21 Providence (#10) L 90-66 Hinds (16) Space (9) 6-5 10th-ranked Friars prove too much for UM to handle. PC's Bentil scores a career high 32. Friars dish 28 assists on 34 made field goals. Space debuts for UM with 11 and 9.
12/29 LIU-Brooklyn W 83-79 Davis (25) Berger (10) 7-5 UM goes on a 15-4 run late to take the victory. Backcourt trio pours in most of the points (Davis 25, Clark 21, Hinds 17). Career-high 10 boards for Berger.
1/3 at La Salle W 74-67 Davis (18) Space (9) 8-5 1-0 Davis joins the 1,000 Point Club with his effort. Berger adds a career-high 15, and snares 7 rebounds as well. UM dominates the glass: 47-31.
1/6 at Dayton (#25) L 93-63 Davis & Clark (21 each) Space (8) 8-6 1-1 Dayton steamrolls, start to finish. Flyers shoot 68% in the second half, 57% for the game, and 44% from 3 (last two were season-worst for UM's defense). UM tallies just 24 rebounds, a season low. Hinds adds just 4 points.
1/9 St. Bonaventure L 88-77 Clark (25) Davis (7) 8-7 1-2 Bona shoots .596 FG, .556 from 3, .880 from the line. Bona's .596 was a UM-opponent high since Seton Hall in 2010. UM snares 16 offensive rebounds, but that doesn't overcome SBU's hot shooting. Bergantino has a solid game with 13 points (career high) and 6-7 FGs. Davis injury scare, but he returns and plays 31 minutes.
1/12 George Washington L 81-70 Clark (19) Hinds & Hines (5 each) 8-8 1-3 UM shoots 49% from the floor, but GW out-hustles Minutemen. GW wins the glass, shoots 42% from 3, and 29-34 from the line (vs 15-20 for UM).
1/16 at Davidson L 86-74 Davis (30) Clark (7) 8-9 1-4 UM leads 69-67 with 4:16 left, but falls apart and gives up a 19-5 run to finish. Davidson's Gibbs scores career-high 43. Davis ties UM's record with 8 made 3s. Hinds adds 16. Clark adds 14, but struggles on 3-15 shooting.
1/23 St. Louis L 86-75 Davis (36) Space (10) 8-10 1-5 SLU goes on a 17-0 run in the second half. Clark 12 pts. Hinds 10 pts, but on 4-16 FG shooting. UM's 5th straight double-digit loss is longest such streak since 1982.
1/27 at Saint Joseph's L 78-70 Berger (17) Anderson (7) 8-11 1-6 Isaiah Miles (27 & 12) steps up while Bembry has an off night (3-13 FG). Berger's 17 is new career high. Hinds (13 points) reaches the 1K scoring mark for his total college career. SJU defense shuts down Davis (10 pts, 4-12 FG) and Clark (9 pts, 2-5 FG).
1/30 Fordham L 78-72 (OT) Davis (21) Anderson (11) 8-12 1-7 Clark hits a late-game 3 to force OT, but porous UM defense lets Fordham snatch the victory. UM shoots just 5-27 from 3 (18.5%). Rams' pressure defense leads to 10 steals. Space hits 3/4 court shot at halftime buzzer. 7-game slide is longest since 2003-04 season.
2/2 Rhode Island W 61-56 (OT) Davis (20) Coleman (9) 9-12 2-7 Under-manned Rhody still pushes UM to OT, but Minutemen prevail behind Davis' 20 and Clark's 17. Coleman logs 27 minutes off the bench, snares 9 boards Rhody wins the total rebounding numbers, 48-40.
2/6 at Richmond L 69-53 Clark (23) Bergantino & Space (6 each) 9-13 2-8 Clark hits six 3s, but Davis goes 0-11 from the floor. UM sets new season lows in points, FGs (17), and FG% (.304, 17-56).
2/11 Virginia Commonwealth W 69-63 Clark (22) Bergantino & Davis (8 each) 10-13 3-8 UM lets a 15-point second-half lead turn into a tie game, but regroups to hold off the Rams. Backcourt attack returns: Clark 22, Davis & Hinds 18 each. Berger leaves game after collision, goes into concussion evaluation.
2/14 at Duquesne W 108-99 (OT) Hinds (37) Space (17) 11-13 4-8 UM starts shooting 1-19, but then 31-51 (.608) the rest of the way. Hinds shatters his previous career best (24) with 13-20 shooting, including 7-8 from three. Davis adds 26, Clark & Space 17 each. Space's 17 rebounds are a new college career best. UM whistled for 4 technical fouls after just 2 in the entire season before today.

2/24 Saint Joseph's L 74-57 Clark (20) Davis (6) 12-15 5-10 Miles (20) and Bembry (18) lead the way for SJU, while UM hurts their cause with 2-22 (9%) shooting from 3. Hinds adds 19 for UM, but Davis has an off-night, scoring just 4 on just 2-12 shooting. No one other than Clark goes to the line for UM.
2/27 at St. Bonaventure L 85-83 Davis (26) Davis (6) 12-16 5-11 UM builds an 18-point lead in the first half on 67% shooting, but Bonnies storm back, scoring 50 in the second half.

3/3 at Rhode Island L 68-50 Holloway (11) Clark (9) 12-17 5-12 UM gets off to an atrocious start, scoring just 12 in the first half. Small second-half run, but not nearly enough. UM's backcourt trio struggles: Clark 10 (3-9 FG), Hinds 8 (3-16 FG), Davis 7 (1-6 FG).
