The buffet at the Golden Corral just got a little less expansive. Rick Pitino announced this afternoon that forward Rakeem Buckles will not play against UK after suffering a finger injury. Buckles joins Mikey 2 Dope and Elisha Justice on the injured list and now makes U of L’s nine-deep rotation of guys playing at least 15 minutes only six-deep. Just like the Cats. Hmmm.
Clearly, though, the real winners here are CBS and television viewers across the globe, who will now be priviliged to the technical beauty of a healthy amount of Eloy Vargas on Stephen Van Stink in the post. Ratings!
