-The days of going head-to-head in the SEC might be long behind them, but the Tubby Smith-Billy Donovan bromance is still alive and well. Today’s showdown in Austin looks to be an emotional roller coster for the both of them.
-Despite rumors to the contrary, Pitt coach Jamie Dixon isn’t going anywhere. The southern California native was expected to take a hard look at the vacant USC job, but instead signed a 10-year extension to remain in Pittsburgh through the 2022-2023 season.
-BBN West might not be relocating to Seattle after all. According to Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, the city has put together an impressive last minute arena deal which could be enough to keep the Kings in Sac-Town. I hope you didn’t buy too much flannel, Boogie.
-After missing 4 games with a badly sprained ankle, Brandon Knight returned to the Pistons lineup last night. He had 10 points in a win over the Bobcats.
-With new offers from Ohio State and Alabama in hand, UK football target Derek Kief is no longer flying under the radar. Stoops and Co. have their work cut out for them if they want the wideout in Lexington.
–A’dia Mathies and the UK Hoops team have some lofty goals as they head into their first round tournament game against Navy today. Following a disappointing SEC tournament finish, the Cats now have their sights set on one thing– the Final Four.
Ok, that’s it for now, but I’ll be back in a bit with more. Don’t break anything while I’m gone.
