Good morning, friends. I am currently writing to you from the sunny state of Florida, where there are three types of people – retired yankees, relocated southerners, and third-generation Floridians. One of these is scary breed of folks: you decide. Anyways, we awake to (not surprisingly) a morning of not much news. Let’s check it out with some AM linkage:
– Last night, the Indiana boys All-Star team beat the ever-living tar out of the Kentucky All-Stars, 114-60. That’s a 54-point loss. FIFTY-FOUR. Indiana has dominated of late (having won 10 in a row and 17 of the last 18 games), but this game clearly got out of hand. UK-commit Derek Willis led Kentucky with 18 points.
– On a brighter note for the Bluegrass state, the Kentucky girls All-Star topped the Indiana All-Stars, 84-78. UK-bound Ms. Basketball Makayla Epps put up 17 points and 10 assists. However it was Ashton Feldhaus who sealed the deal for the girls with a late three. Neither of these All-Star games mean much, but I hate losing to Indiana in anything.
– The C-J’s Ben Roberts penned (er…keyboarded?) a piece claiming that now that UK’s 2014 football class is on America’s radar, rivals will come hard trying to flip commitments. That’s a valid point, and we should all
suit up for war against rivals temper our expectations should kids choose to go elsewhere. Ah, screw it – too late – I am already too excited about the future.
– But no worries. Stoops never quits. Coach Stoops will be at powerhouse school Cardinal Mooney’s Camp of Champions, along with his brothers, in early July. This camp and school are a big deal for fostering that Ohio recruiting pipeline.
– Did you celebrate National Bourbon Day yesterday? Well, this guy (Rep. Andy Barr) did.
