– If there’s a hot news story on this slow Tuesday, it’s the report that Doron Lamb is wearing a walking boot on his injured left ankle. You can assume that it’s mostly precautionary and Lamb will be available to play this weekend in Tampa. If he was able to give it a go in a game that was thought to only have slight impact on the Cats’ season, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t expect him to be ready a week later when they start the NCAA Tournament. Get your goggles ready.
– The postseason awards continue to roll out today as Terrence Jones and Brandon Knight were named USBWA Freshmen All-Americans. Both players were named to the first team. I think we can all assume that this award is going to be mentioned quite frequently over the next several years.
– It was reported wrong initially (at least on here) and it has now been corrected, so make note if you are in or going to be in Tampa. UK’s open practice will start at 1:30 Wednesday at the St. Pete Times Forum. The open practices start with Princeton at noon and then re-start with a different team every 45 minutes. The order after the Tigers is UC-Santa Barbara, UK, Florida, UCLA, West Virginia, UAB and then either Clemson or VCU.
– We’ll put a full list of them up in a later post this afternoon, but make sure you check out all of the UK events in Tampa through the UK Tampa Bay Alumni Club. The events are organized by the same group who put together all of the fun times and laughs during the SEC Tournament two years ago. Before Gillispie cut them short, of course.
Finally, if you missed the Kentucky Sports Radio show this morning, the podcast is available below. I want to call it the best show in the history of the radio, but that’s only because I came on at the end and I have a massive ego. Matt talked about UK and Princeton, the life of a big-time reporter in Dayton and the future of Billy Gillispie and Tubby Smith. Check it out.
