A big kudos to these young ladies who won the early Halloween voting by dressing as the SEC…Cats are on top, right where they should be. A couple of late notes:
— Some recruiting news as Jason Jordan (quickly becoming the man to follow for UK recruiting news) tweets out this factoid from a interview he did with one of the Harrison Twins:
Talked w/ Aaron Harrison tonight who told me the #1 target he’s pursuing to join he & Andrew at UK is J. Randle. Said they’ve been in talks.

That cannot hurt.
— If you haven’t yet read it, this profile of Anthony Davis in the Sporting News is definitely worth your time. It is a good look at Davis going into his rookie year and what he may accomplish in the league…here is the short answer…he will be very good.
— And that talent was showcased tonight, where Anthony Davis opened up his NBA career with 21 points and 7 rebounds in a loss to the Spurs. I watched virtually all of this game and it is clear that Davis is headed towards a huge year. He already dominates the inside and once he gets in better position on defense, the blocks will come. Austin Rivers is still awful and makes me want to deport him every time he has the ball. Darius Miller also debuted, scoring 3 points in 13 minutes. What stood out to me about his game however was his +/- ratio of +15. It is not surprising that when Darius is in, his team does better.
Drew will be along shortly with his night post. Until then, get ready for the Northwood preview on radio tomorrow and enjoy this massive flat top running the Halloween show:
