Today’s UK Fans of the Day are on a balcony overlooking Washington DC. They have a very good ‘C-A-T-S’ technique and they demanded this afternoon’s notes and podcast.
— It’s a big week for UK basketball recruiting, as Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel are scheduled to announce their decisions on Wednesday. Kentucky is the favorite for Noel but UCLA is putting up a good fight for Muhammad. If the Cats get Noel, expect a great team next season.
