VIDEO: UK profiles DJ Warren Peace

Many of you may recognize DJ Warren Peace from various UK events, ranging from home basketball and football games to the secondary sports and several other outings on campus. He has become the university’s go-to guy for music, and he’s profiled in this new video.

Before you watch it, let me preface all this by saying I’ve known Warren for several years and there isn’t a nicer person in Lexington. You can’t walk past him without him asking how you’re doing and what’s been up, etc.

On top of that he’s really good at his job, especially when he’s getting the basketball team ready in Rupp Arena. Quade Green is a huge fan, as you’ll see in the video.

VIDEO: The dirtiest cheap shot in the history of basketball

The dirtiest move in the history of basketball occurred last night with a nasty cheap shot in a Division III game.

Kewan Platt of Fitchburg State tried to behead Nichols’ Nate Tenaglia as Tenaglia shot a three-pointer in the corner. We do not know what led Platt to put his elbow in Tanglia’s chin, but the move is inexcusable and should cost Platt his basketball career.

I’m all for forgiveness and hearing both sides of the story, but this is disgusting. Platt should be banned from any kind of basketball forever — even watching it on TV in the comfort of his own home.

I hope Tanaglia’s teammates returned the favor before Platt could get to halfcourt. That’s a bench-clearing move.

See for yourself:

For what it’s worth, the shot went in.

UPDATE: Fitchburg State suspends player, releases statement:

The school suspended the player indefinitely and barred him from campus:

The Fitchburg State community is appalled by the conduct displayed during Tuesday night’s home basketball game. The player involved has been indefinitely suspended from the team and barred from campus, effective immediately.

His behavior is antithetical to our community values and good sportsmanship. Fitchburg State does not tolerate behavior that violates those standards. The case is being reviewed at the student conduct level for consideration of further sanctions.
