Take a second to look at all of the faces in that photo and see how many stars you can name. That’s Bianca Jagger, former wife of Mick Jagger, representing the Cats. Everyone is a fan.
— Tom Crean thinks he is a funny guy. Yesterday, when asked how he remembers playing No. 1 Kentucky at a previous coaching job, Crean said, “I remember we got them down 24 points, that’s what I remember.” Oh yeah? I remember Dwyane Wade. If he wants to talk trash, we’ll listen.
— Fox News Latino has a GREAT piece on UK assistant Orlando Antigua and what he has been through before becoming one of the nation’s top assistants. Not many know this but Coach O was shot in the head when he was 14 years old and lived with the bullet lodged in him for six years. That near-death experience, plus a span of his life where he was homeless, make Antigua the great and humble guy he is today. I recommend that you take five minutes out of your afternoon to read more about O.
— We’ve talked a lot about class of 2013 power forward Chris Walker lately and he’s back in the news again today. Walker said if he had to pick a school today, he would choose Kansas. He said he also likes Florida because Billy Donovan’s staff constantly stays in touch with him and they’ve been recruiting him the hardest. Kentucky, the school he has basically been begging to recruit him on Twitter, was at his game Tuesday night in Florida. Look for a mix-up in Walker’s favorites when the Cats start pursuing him harder.
— UK target Jarnell Stokes is still considering playing college basketball this season but he would have to pull the trigger soon in order to do so He’s considering Kentucky, Memphis, Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida and Connecticut as possible destinations. His interest in Kentucky is high but the Cats are the only school out of the six that he would have to pay for. All of the other schools have a scholarship available. Stokes says he and his father have also considered other options that they’re not willing to discuss right now. Kentucky could really use a bruiser like Stokes this year.
— This morning’s radio show was a solid two hours of talking about the Hoosiers. Enjoy…
