    Lacey, a 6-foot-4 guard who has signed with Kentucky, hit 9-of-13 from the field and sank 5-of-12 3-pointers. He also connected on 11-of-15 free throws. :O

    who has signed with Kentucky?

    #2 You couldn’t hold the jock strap of either one of them.

    When we make a tourney run, you will be the first blathering idiot cheering them on like they were your own children.

    Oh wait, that would require for you to have sex.

    With a female.

    Blow up dolls don’t count.

    Sullinger is a shoe-in.

    9 – that’s inaccurate, and flat-out impossible – you can’t sign until the April signing period.

    Congrats to both kids for the nomination. They have zero chance of winning, but congrats for being nominated.

    Trevor Lacey just denied committing to UK. That was about 20 minutes ago via twitter. Let the soap opera begin.

    #2 Get a real life…people like you who make the REAL UK fans look like idiots!

    10: That’s what I was thinking. You can’t sign until the official signing period. Therefore someone obviously fabricated that article. That stinks. Hopefull it won’t disuade him from coming to UK if that were his intentions.

    We got so spoiled last year that we don’t appreciate how good these two guys are. 2 out of the top 5 nationally is quite a feat.

    Sullinger is Top 3 for Player of the Year and is on a Top5 team, it’s not really a contest here.

    Mr. Schwump go take a dump. That is obviously the most intelligent thing coming out of you.lol.

    Sullinger will win due to positive media coverage. And due to the fact that Wall won last year will eliminate UK player from winning back to back IMHO.

    22. You spelled my name wrong and and that didn’t even rhyme which further illustrates my point. Zing. Boom. Roasted

    Great. Let’s hang a banner right next to our recruiting championships.

    Did he sign after the early period? I don’t think he can sign unless it is during one of the official signing periods.

    Mr. Schwump-you have come on this board and told us how you are a man of integrity. Yet with each post, you display a complete and utter lack of it. Why don’t you quit while you’re behind?

    Jones is way way over hyped. He can’t handle the ball without dribbling off his foot, gets his shot slapped back in his face at least two or three times a game because everybody knows he is gonna shoot come hell or high water and 99.9% of the time he never uses a pump fake and then shoot. And Knight is scared of contact and doesnt handle being pressured very well either.

    I’d have to agree with 18 on this. This award will be given to Sullinger for sure. They just nominated four other guys because they wanted five finalists.

    I’m so ashamed of you horrible fans who… ah never mind, I can’t do it- 0% chance Sullinger doesn’t win.
