Late night, so lets do this quick….
(1) Talked to a buddy in Philly who told me that Darius Miller is lighting things up at the Reebok Camp going on right now. He said that he overheard a major college coach saying that Darius may be the best get in the class because he will be a great player in college, but is not of the “one and done” variety. Gotta get Darius on board soon.
(2) I know I sound like a broken record, but the more I write about Scotty Hopson, the more info I get that Kentucky is in this till the end. I continue to hear from more people close to Scotty who say that deep down he wants to look at and maybe even go to, Kentucky. Nothing will happen until after the summer, but Hopson is a Kentucky kid who is still firmly in the picture.
(3) The Cats are doing well in the NBA Summer league. Randolph Morris got a double-double in his first game with the Knicks (and the above block on Kevin Durant) and Kelenna Azubuike had 29 for Golden State. The Cats in the NBA continue to shine. I am pulling hard for both guys.
(4) Its been a while since I have written something with more diverse opinion than my column on the UK-UL television deal. Lots of people have written me with facts that they believe I should know and it has been interesting to read the various opinions. At its core, it seems that UK moved the game because they believe they have a better chance to win later in the season. I actually disagree with this view as I think the Cats could steal it easier early, but you have to give them credit for taking the stand.
(5) Check out the poll to the right…..it needs your help.
More during the day, including two new matchups in the Greatest UK Player Ever Tournament…..
