Good morning, friends. So nice to see you. Wait, is that coffee on your shirt? You actually looked? Wow. Can’t believe I made you look that easily. I hope you’ll still look at what lies ahead today on KSR.
A Wild Finish
Tennessee’s first game as the No. 1 team in the country featured a little Memorial Magic. The Vanderbilt Commodores fought to build a late six-point lead with less than two minutes to play. A hook and hold flagrant foul, followed by a Grant Williams ‘And One,’ put the Volts within striking range. Tied with :30 to play, chaos ensued.
Vanderbilt blocked a potential game-winning shot to send it to overtime, but they could not get anything going in the extra period. Tennessee defeated Vandy 88-83 behind Grant Williams’ 43-point performance to defend their No. 1 spot and remain undefeated in SEC play. This team is pretty damn good.
UK Women Return Home
Memorial Coliseum will host a Top 25 duel between the fifteenth-ranked Wildcats and the Missouri Tigers tonight at 6:30. The No. 25 Tigers are coming to Lexington off a loss at South Carolina, while UK brings fresh legs after a week away from the court.
General admission tickets are $8 for adults and only $5 for children. If you can’t make it to Memorial Coliseum, you can see all of the action on the SEC Network.
Ahead of ESPN’s SEC/Big 12 Challenge, each conference is hosting a teleconference with the league coaches. We’ll share what we heard from John Calipari and Bill Self around lunchtime.
Lonnie Johnson Secures the Bag
The UK cornerback is making so much money in Mobile. After wowing scouts with his size on Tuesday, he dominated one-on-ones on Day Two at the Senior Bowl. Once considered an under the radar draft prospect, Lonnie is flying so far up draft boards, he could become an early Day Two pick in the NFL Draft.

A New Podcast
Kentucky Thrones Radio is back. Like a pair of Whitewalkers, T.J. Walker and I brought KSR’s Game of Thrones podcast back to life last night. Over the next three months we will help you get prepared for the final season of Game of Thrones with a little help from our friends. As we wait for Apple’s approval, you can find each podcast on the KSR iTunes feed. Thanks for listening, and bearing with us as we kick off the rust.
That Boy’s Good
Kentucky has been targeting 2020’s top-ranked center, N’Faly Dante, for quite some time. Rumored to potentially reclassify to the 2019 class, as you will see in his latest highlight reel from the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions, he would not miss a beat.
Tiger is Back
Tiger Woods’ 2019 season begins this afternoon at the Farmers Insurance Open. He’ll tee off at Torrey Pines, a course where he’s won eight times, this afternoon at 1:40 ET alongside Xander Schauffele and Tony Finau. Coverage on the Golf Channel begins at 3:00 pm.
Bleacher Report used one former Kentucky point guard’s love for video games to scare the Fox out of him. Watch what happened when De’Aaron Fox sampled the new Resident Evil video game.
De’Aaron Fox thought he was just trying out Resident Evil 2.
