Good morning friends! It’s the best day of the year if you like horses and Mexican food! It’s Cinco De Derby! Lots happening yesterday, and a lot is happening today. Here’s what you need to know before your first margarita julep!
Congrats to our grads!
Two of KSR’s own graduated from UK yesterday! Haley Simpson who used to work with me on the Women’s basketball beat and Trey Huntsman – our favorite baseball podcaster!
Congrats guys! Y’all will both do amazing things!
Anthony Davis did some things….
Davis and the Pelican beat the Warriors last night 119-100. Davis had a VERY impressive game – 33 points, 18 rebounds, and four steals. Just four? Come on Davis, you can do better. Seriously though, he was on fire! See for yourself:

And Rondo was ridiculous too…
How about four points, 10 rebounds and a playoff career-high 21 assists?! Talk about a classic Rajon Rondo stat line. Rondo was also the last player to score 20 assists in a playoff game which was back in 2001.
Derek Willis is still rocking man capris.

Last year at Derby, Twitter was aflame roasting Willis for his “man-pris” at Derby. I guess he didn’t learn his lesson though because the short pants made a return at Oaks yesterday.
Did he borrow these from my closet? Come on Derek!
How to survive Derby
Going to Derby today? Don’t want to act like a fool in short pants like Willis? Our own resident Derby connoisseur, Nick Roush has an excellent guide. Check out his “Derby 101” series for what to drink, wear, and talk about!
