This is an update about the UK basketball team described in the following published 2/15/2018.
UK Wildcat basketball has suddenly and miraculously reversed their miserable play and misfortunes. From resent performances, UK has a ‘brand new’ basketball team with two 2017-2018 regular season games remaining.
“Anyone who watched the last 3 UK basketball games, and the 4 games before, Coach Calipari said, right before your eyes we’re becoming a better basketball team. In the last 3 victories the group of 5 players in shared the court for 23 minutes and 57 seconds and scored a whopping 74 points and only 4 turnovers. [Ben Roberts Lex Herald-Leader 2/27/2018]…………WOW
Now the original publication 2/15/2018 with legitimate scinetific and sports facts.
The nervous system is made of 2 parts:
- peripheral nervous system (PNS)The PNS consists of the nerves and ganglia outside the brain and spinal cord.  The main function of the PNS is to connect the CNS to the limbs and organs, essentially serving as a relay between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body.
- central nervous system (CNS). The CNS spinl cord is protected by the vertebral colum or spine and the CNS brain is portected by the skull and the blood–brain barrier, which filters-out toxins from penetrating into the brain tissue.
Constructive Physiologic and Psychologic Evaluation duriong the UK / Auburtn basketball game.
I. Peripheral Nerouvs System and Motor Actions
• Score 2/14/2018- Auburn 76 UK 61:
• 4th Consecutive Loss hasn’t happened since ‘Coach’ Billy Gillispie.
• UK Box Score vs Auburn is not a winning NCAA Basketball Tournament Final 4 Formula:
• Field Goal 47% 3Point 23% Free Throw 65%
• UK 14 Turnovers Auburn 9 Steals Auburn 5 Blocks
• UK Basketball Players are extremely athletic
• Athletically excellent with athletic NBA potential,
• UK’s Athletes are ‘young’ because they were recruited ‘young’ with Athletic Ability
• NBA Draft Combine will determine mostly the physical ability of each draft candidate for NBA by measuring the candidates’ Athletic Ability,
• not measuring for hard copy primarily Basketball Finesse, Basketball IQ, Court Understanding, Perception, seasoned experience,
• not measuring Teamwork, Dribbling, Passing, Ball Handling, Footwork,
• NBA Draft Combine will determine Standing Reach, Height, Wingspan, Standing Vertical Leap, Max
• Vertical Leap, Shuttle Run, Lane Agility, Three Quarter Sprint,
• NBA Break along with shooting from different floor areas, which is good for the NBA, not necessarily UK Basketball.
• Good balance of physicality and basketball skill is best.
• Some of UK’s Baskeball Athletes don’t have their head up with eyes on teammates and court actions or down court, while dribbling the basketball; have their feet crossed while handling or receiveing the ball; fumble the ball, walk, drop the ball, throw wild passes and make wild desperation moves toward the basket, appear bewildered, lower their head with eyes down driving to the goal; on ‘fast break’ have no concept of filling the lanes, getting the ball to the middle, pulling-up and dishing the ball to teammates in outside lanes, blocking out is not natural, many other Basketball Reflexes are not natural, ‘muscle memory’, and on and on and on……
“Athletes should not worry about winning or losing 1st, but the execution of their current assignment and athletic actions and winning will follow.
Example: “Give me the ball, I can score.”
Athlete Mental Toughness is derived from the love, passion, soul and spirit for the game, internally, self-initiated. Athletes with Mental Toughness have an innate love for and desire to play the Sport, as only they can play the Sport, when combined with a Coach who reinforces their desire and love. Mentally Tough Athletes will run through a wall for love of the game and accomplishment for their Coach.
The “process oriented” Athlete is Self-Disciplined and has remarkable Self-Control. They are obedient to themselves, the Coach and therefore, the Team.
Thus, they have Repetitive Physiological Athletic Execution from intensive practice of Muscle Synchronization. These are agonist-antagonist muscle phenomena and create ‘muscle memory’.
The agonist muscle groups are free to glide smoothly through their athletic memory synchronies, repeatedly, unimpeded by the antagonist muscles,” when the Athlete is not worried about the outcome i.e “if I miss we’ll lose.” Instead, the Athlete says to self “give me the ball because I can score”. “Smash at me and I’ll smash it back.”
Positive Athletic Performance -Winning Physical Execution of Athletic Assignments
Positive Momentum – Continuous Athletic Intensified Motions and Competitions, maintaining Athletic Performance repeatedly
Repeat of the Continuous Athletic Positive Momentum Performance Cycles. [see Sports Momentum: http://www.cappaa.com/sports-momentum]
II. Central Nervous System and Psychological Actions of the Mind located within the brain
Not all Athletes have supreme. Most are good to excellent. Many are not as good. Supremes are the 10s. Observationalists can grade Athletes’ for themselves from 1 to 10.
The hypothesis is that ‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness’ (thinking/cognition) of the Supreme Athlete is key to supremacy.
‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness’utilizes primarily Biological Processes while being influenced less by secondary Psychological Computation and Surface Behaviors.
The ‘Growth Mindset’ Athlete utilizes Psychological and Behavioral layers primarily with the Biological Processes considerably less.
Humans belong to the animal kingdom. Both comparative psychologists and biologists, researchers who study personality in biology and psychology, embrace Personality Traits explanations for Personality.
Their research has provided answers to questions about the evolution of human personality and have presented conceptual and empirical anomalies for socio-cognitive theories.
Personality Trait explanations for Personality Behaviors reveal that hereditary traits not only belong to the human species, but when Personality Traits are expressed, with some modifications, traits are expressed across the entire species, just like the physical appearances of humans and animals, absent thinking, express their appearance across the entire species.
Animals don’t have cognitive Minds. Humans don’t all of a sudden look like lions, they continue to look human and manifest cognition. 60.
Children seem to have distinct temperaments almost from birth. Some are cheerful and easy to care for, while others are not so much.
In research, temperaments include general activity level, fussy, demanding, adaptability, persistence, adventurousness, shyness, inhibitedness, irritability, and distractibility.
Most psychologists agree that such temperamental differences are biologically based and have genetic origins (Bates & Pettit, 2007; Caspi & Silva, 1995; Kagan & Snidman, 2007; M. Pfeifer, Goldsmith, Davidson, & Rickman, 2002; A. Thomas & Chess, 1977).61.
There have been decades of twin research showing similarity in personality between identical twins. 62.
Most anthropologists today believe some researchers have gone too far in their assertions about the influence of environment, society and culture on personality formation, while discounting heredity.
There are many potential factors that are involved in shaping a personality primarily from heredity. Research has increasingly pointed to hereditary factors being more important, especially for basic personality traits, such as emotional tone.
However, some Personality Traits are especially impacted during childhood. After childhood, the impact on Personality Development of education is increasingly challenging. 63.
Many scientists believe most of the Personality is established at birth and then modified and further expressed during childhood, less in adolescents.
The ‘Growth Mindset’ is a separate entity from ‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness’ of the Supreme Athlete.
Further education for all ‘Growth Mindset’ Athletes concerning their Personality Behaviors, emotions, actions and execution of assignments is extremely important and encouraged by this reporter, who has published reports regarding the importance of education of Athletes across the board.
This report is not about the majority of Great, Enormously Physically Talented, Elite Athletes, whose Athletic achievements might be improved with further development of the Growth Mindset, which is grown “when coaching staffs present athletic skills as acquirable, teach the importance of passion, effort, improvement and teamwork, and the coaching staffs present themselves as mentors and not just talent judges of enormously talented Athletes.”
This reporter believes mentoring and education are important at all levels of Sports, Recreation and Exercise, (SRE). 64.
At birth, the human brain does not come with a blank code for the soon to become Athlete’s Mindfulness or Personality to be totally molded and the blanks filled-in by environmental and social factors, at the behest of the parents and the coach.
The human brain is born with specific genetic codes for the ‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness’ or Personality and every other possible Mindset.
Preexisting psychological personality characteristics, aka attributes: thinking / thoughts, emotions / feelings, and actions / behaviors and environmental and social factors work in concert to promote personality continuity, the Mindset.
Environmental and social factors often reinforce those personality traits, which were responsible for the initial environmental and social conditions of the individual in the first place. (Roberts et al., 2003). The kinds of jobs or sport often require drive, dedication, striving for achievement, and accentuation of ambition and confidence.
Positive gene expressions, responses and reactions to environmental and social factors can generate self-fulfilling cycles and reinforce continuance and continuity. 66.
The importance of the biological foundation of personality development has been identified by researchers (Hans Eysenck, Gordon Allport and Raymond Cattell and others). Their findings support the associations of psychological brain neuroanatomy networks with brain neural pathways and brain neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, with the development of personality characteristics aka personality attributes aka thinking / thoughts, emotions / feelings, and actions / behaviors aka Mindset.
Heredity brain encoded DNA patterns at the neuron cell level interact with environmental and social factors to determine an individual’s personality. Gene Expression is ‘turned on’ internally and autonomously by the Mind’s internal network.
The Mindset, Personality characteristics, is determined “not by a single gene, but by a combination of many gene networks”, and expressed within environments and social conditions amenable to their expression.
“Many personality studies today investigate the activation and expression of genes and how they relate to personality. How DNA interacts with the environmental and social factors determines what part of the DNA code is actually activated within an individual, in other words, which genes will be expressed.”
The ‘nature vs. nurture’ debate about whether genetics or environmental and social factors are more influential in human development) is ongoing for some. However, scientists and medical doctors rely upon the “strength of the biological perspective’s strict adherence to scientific methodology.” 67.
Doctors and therapists, who have struggled to change the behaviors of humans and Athletes, have encountered difficulties. It is difficult to change bad habits influenced by their environments and societies.
‘Fixed Mindfulness’’, fixed personality and ‘growth mindset’, growth personality have been described. Those with a ‘fixed Mindfulness’’ assume that they are the way they are and that’s all there is to it. “There’s no changing me.” ‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness” of the Supreme Athlete is good and the foundation of SRE icons.
Analysts insist there are Athletes with a ‘growth mindset’ and believe that they can assist their change, that their Mindset is malleable and that they can change and grow.” 64.
“It is possible that individuals might change their personality attributes by actively striving to change their behaviors and emotional reactions with help from outsiders. This idea lies at the heart of psychotherapy” but it is very difficult. 66.
The ‘fixed Superior Mindfulness’’ is at the heart of the Supreme Athlete.
The ‘fixed Superior Mindfulness’ of the Supreme Athlete exhibits many Personality Traits and Behaviors.
A survey found that the Supreme Athlete is Accessible, Kind and Courteous to the athletic staff, media and fans, very Self-Confident and Articulate. He/she appear Perceptive, Knowledgeable and Wise about their Athletic Expertise and obligations.
Practice leading up to the sporting event is always a serious endeavor for them. The Supreme Athlete is a student of the game and assumes a Goal-Oriented preparation approach. They are extremely Energetic, Enthusiastic, Innovative, Hard-Working, Dedicated and Conscientious.
The Supreme Athlete is always a leader on and off the field. He/she is Organized, a Perfectionist and always maintains excellent Conditioning, Health, Strength and Readiness. The Supreme Athlete is Uncomplaining and Stoic; never a ‘goldbricker’.
Come game time, the Supreme Athlete remains Focused on Execution of his/her assignments and Winning and always Concentrative and Courageous. He/she displays Impressive, Exciting, Extraordinary, Heroic play and is Imaginative and Skillful, Intrinsically and Autonomously Motivated, Self-Determined and Passionate for the game. The Supreme Athlete plays Intelligently, Intuitively, Perceptively and strives for Perfection. He/she often appears Invulnerable.
He/she is Appreciative, Modest and Humble in Victory and Gracious and Self-Critical in defeat.
Off the field the Supreme Athlete has a good Personality, Ethical Character and is Genuinely Optimistic, Honest, Honorable, Responsible Self-reliant, Trustworthy, Principled, Reliable, Considerate and always on their best Behavior and very Contemplative and Consciously aware of their surroundings and how to improve themselves.
‘Fixed Superior Mindfulness’ of the Supreme Athlete is characterized by Task-Positive Network (TPN) which is engaged when the Athlete attends to the here and now. The TPN is the action network. The TPN is the Athletes direct line to Mindfulness in the Present Moment in which worry and sadness cannot be activated, because the Default Mode Network (DMN) is excluded from that moment.
The Supreme Athlete has many positive personality traits, which the Athlete mindfully organizes from the top of his/her Mind down, while directing total Mindfulness energy, while wasting none, on the athletic tasks at hand.

• We UK alum and fans support all our UK sports programs feverishly; many with donations and every allowable support.
• Future UK basketball recruits should have logged-in many years of Basketball Training i.e. grade, middle and high school basketball with experienced Coaches, or the equivalent excellent training, avoiding agents and non-school Coaches with their own agendas, so that they have learned Basketball finesse, skills, abilities, natural hand, eye, foot and cognitive reactions, before recruitment, not just physicality
• Hopefully, the UK Men and Women’s Basketball programs will make the adjustments necessary to return to improved Basketball performance.
