Couple of Basketball Notes on a Football Day


Today is a football day in the Bluegrass, with UK Media Day taking precedence over most of the top stories. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a few basketball notes that we here in Kentucky must attend to while the kids enjoy their Eminem, Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket and the Muses at Lollapalooza in Chicago:

Kaleb Tarczewski says UK is a finalist:

2012 super big man Kaleb Tarczewski continues to feel out his relationship with Kentucky in a public manner, this time by telling Adam Zagoria that Kentucky has now entered his Final Four. You may remember earlier this week that a Kansas site reported Tarczewski was not considering Kentucky and would decide between Kansas, UCLA and Arizona within the week. Well that didn’t happen and today Kaleb T. confirmed that the Cats are in his final group and that he wants to visit Lexington before making his college choice. You may remember that I was told by a coaching source at the Peach Jam that “Kentucky is in a lot better shape with Kaleb than people think”, and that was at a time that no one thought Kentucky was even in the picture. Kansas is still the favorite (he has visited there four times), but Kentucky is on the radar and the longer this goes, you just never know.

Dajuan Coleman will visit for Midnight Madness:

We have talked a lot about Dajuan Coleman on this website over the past month. He is the beefy big man from upstate New York choosing between the Wildcats and Syracuse. I like Coleman because he is a Calipari type of center, big and muscular and able to rebound. Plus, he is immensely talented but not likely the player who will get a lot of NBA attention early…good for staying in Lexington a while. We learn today that Coleman will be at Midnight Madness, part of a mega-group that Calipari is trying to bring to the event to rack up a fall move in the 2012 recruiting.

Louisville UK Legends Game coming together:

A source told me tonight that tickets sales for the UK Legends game in the Yum Center have been above expectations and are headed towards a very good crowd for the event. There are good seats still available, but most believe that in the end the arena will not be a sell out, but will be a great crowd. We still haven’t heard word on television for the game, but I continue to believe that you will see television for the Lexington game, but none for Louisville. So if you want to see the team that includes Knight, Liggins and Jorts, buying tickets for the Yum Center will be your only opportunity.

Dry in the Pickup Game World:

We have heard about some great pickup action in Lexington over the past few weeks, with former NBA guys running with the UK players. The Dominican Republic players, some former Cats in the NBA and those who have remained in Lexington have played with the UK players and reports are that all were impressed. Ryan Harrow and Anthony Davis continue to be the stories of the summer, as both have made onlookers shake their head during action. There will be a bit of a lull over the next two weeks as many of the players have taken off for some time at home before classes start. The NBA players will arrive and be in town, as well as the Dominican team, but there won’t be quite the pickup goodness to watch as in previous weeks.

Tomorrow, I will have a rundown on some of the tidbits from Media Day as we are inching closer to everything getting started once again.

    if Orton can get NBA attention, I’d say chances are Coleman will too.

    Plus Coleman will get in even better shape at UK and will be here no longer than 1 year. Dude is a one and done for sure if he does the work.

    I know advertisments pays the bills but I can’t say I’m happy looking at that IU crap on a UK blog site. Hopefully we don’t see UofL next.

    Pretty sure Google ads just generate themselves based off of what you’ve been looking at on your computer. Brady you must repent for your transgressions against Big Blue Nation.

    @9 lots of people have nips that do different things at the same time. The left peck looks different because he has his arm up doing the three goggles.

    #8 and #9 those 2 comments got me cracking up. #8 that seems a strange bit of knowledge to keep stored, are there studies and research on this interesting nip phenomenon?

    I was at the Bullit East exhibition tonight. It was basically a dunk contest and some 3 point shooting with a clock running. Terrence Williams had some awesome dunks. Dwight Howard is a very good entertainer. No Antoine Walker or Liggins to speak of, even though I’m pretty sure their names were on the roster.

    Also, the crowd was split 60/40 UL/UK fans.

    In re DaJuan Coleman, he is very close to the ‘Cuse program (backyard); understand he has been ‘courted’, as of late, by Jared Sullinger of Ohio State. Given all thast, it would be miraculous for Coach CAL to land the kid. But if a miracle were to occur, it most logically would be delivered & received at KENTUCKY’s Midnight Madness.

    I still don’t get what gives anybody the idea ‘this kid will be around for a while”?

    Based on what information? In my opinion, any kid ranked in the top 20 that comes to play for Cal has a good chance of being one and done. Why would anyone think otherwise?

    #7 & #16 I agree, the dude needs to put on a shirt, or start charging a fee for that freak show.

    I agree with all the previous comments regarding this dude’s nipples…It’s not just the nipple but the whole man-boob on his left is larger than the one on the right!! How bizzare…so please wear a shirt next time.
