Wake up, Big Blue Nation. Lots of stuff to get to today, so let’s get rolling. Here’s what’s on today’s agenda:
Noon: Mark Stoops talks about the Music City Bowl
We heard Mitch Barnhart’s comments on the Music City Bowl on Sunday, and today, it’s Mark Stoops’ turn to talk about the matchup with Northwestern. He’ll talk to reporters at noon, so check the site at lunch for a live stream and recap.
7:00 PM: UK Hoops takes on Evansville
The 20th ranked UK Hoops squad takes on the Evansville Purple Aces tonight at 7 p.m. at Memorial Coliseum. The ladies are in the middle of a brutal stretch of five games in eleven days, which started with a loss at Baylor last week before the Cats got back on track vs. Tennessee Tech on Sunday. On Friday, they’ll travel to Florida Gulf Coast and then to Miami on Sunday. You can see the game on WatchESPN, or follow along on 630 WLAP.

Speaking of college basketball, No. 5 Florida took a VERY bad loss last night, falling to Florida State at home 83-66. That’s the fourth year in a row the Seminoles have had the Gators’ number. Ouch.
It was a big night for the Cats in the NBA
Devin Booker scored 46 points in the Suns’ 115-101 win over the 76ers, while DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo both had double doubles in a loss to the Warriors. I’ll have complete highlights of Devin’s big night in just a big, but check out this tussle between Boogie and Kevin Durant, which got them both ejected from the game:
