Chane Behanan sat in the middle of the locker room with a huge black boot on his left foot.

Sitting in a locker, big man Gorgui Dieng had just finished getting a protective bandage removed from his healing left wrist. Backup big man Montrezl Harrell, who logged just four minutes, was nowhere to be found after coach Rick Pitino said he was vomiting before the game.
"We're not even really healthy," Smith said.
"No one has seen our best yet," added Behanan.
Those aren't phrases the rest of the country wants to hear.
