Note to UK basketball fans: Be careful when taking family photos in Rupp Arena. Alan Cutler never misses a good photobomb.
— Kentucky has already set a season-high for College GameDay tickets but there is still a lot of work to do if Big Blue Nation is going to live up to the Rupp Arena expectations set the last time the show came to town. Calipari challenged #BBN to get up to 15,000 tickets this afternoon on Twitter, 2,000 more than where the number is now. Go claim yours at Ticketmaster.com so we can pack the house Saturday morning.
— On this morning’s SEC teleconference, Coach Cal suggested that Ryan Harrow might find a permanent seat on the pine when he said he will evaluate the point guard play over the next few days to figure out the best way to proceed. Archie Goodwin has been spending time at the point in practice and we’ve seen an increase in minutes for Jarrod Polson over the last few games. It sounds like he’s completely given up on Harrow, who he’s been critical of since Day 1. Harrow just lacks the toughness needed to play the point at Kentucky.
— Also from the SEC teleconference, Kevin Stallings said Tennessee would’ve beaten anyone in the country on Saturday. He called Kentucky a talented team full of future pros and he expects a much better showing from the Cats Wednesday night.
— Did you see who stopped by Coach Cal’s office yesterday?
Davis flew to Lexington from Houston, where he participated in the All-Star weekend festivities.
