SEC! SEC! SEC! Everybody’s favorite conference got just the help it needed last night when Michigan State ended Ohio State’s 24 game winning streak 34-24. The Ohio State loss launches Auburn to a match-up against Mark Stoops’ former defense at Florida State. Ohio State will now likely land the good fortune of having to play Alabama. Haha Good luck with that. Now some Sunday morning links:
-What was the biggest factor in Kentucky’s loss to Baylor? According to SI it was inexperience. The Cats looked like a bunch of freshman for the third or forth time this season and it gives you pause on just how far they can go.
-Our old pal John Clay took a look at the factors behind the loss and concluded it was due to the lack of intensity and focus. This group has a alot of growing up to do and they need to do it fast.
-Trey Lyles was in action at the Hoopsfest as Arsenal Tech took on Huntington Prep last night at the Marshall County Hoopsfest. Lyles finished with 22 and 14 before heading to talk with the UK staff.
-With our team stranded in Dallas the opposite is going on in Idaho as the Broncos are getting plenty of rest. They took down Carroll College Thursday to get to 8-0 ahead of their “Super Bowl” in Rupp. Is there a chance the Cats could drop two in a row?
–Our man Jorts is proving he can be a key member of the Pistons. He finished with 10 points and 5 rebounds in last night’s win over the Bulls. Teague finished with 10 points as well.
