It is late and I have to get up in the morning and head to a lawyer’s conference in Lexington, so this will be quick….
(1): Congrats to another Cat winning a title as Rajon Rondo had a super night tonight helping the Celtics win the Championship. Rajon was superb, getting 21 points and bouncing close to a triple-double. His performance was made even more impressive by the fact that he has been lambasted by some in the media throughout the series, and he nevertheless came back with a great performance. Rondo has become a very good player and is a part of the UK family, which is great to see. But like Thomas, I feel as if this series has been going on for years and I am glad it is over.
(2): The KHSAA declared Dakotah Euton ineligible next year for Scott County, due to the breaking of a transfer rule in the high school bylaws. I admit to knowing nothing of the specifics of Euton’s case, but it is an unfortunate situation. Euton plans on appealing and may end up being allowed to play at a later date. I am not surprised however that something came of this, as the Scott County transfer situation has been a whispered-about issue for sometime in Kentucky, and this gives the KHSAA a chance to take a stand.
(3): Emmanual Negedu, a former Arizona commit who backed out this summer, is going to Tennessee. Bruce Pearl continues to rack up in Knoxville and is starting to develop a recruiting force. UT will be young next year and will lack some of the scoring power they had in years past, but Pearl was able to bring in Hopson, Maze and Negedu, all in the Spring and all decommits from other schools…..quite an impressive haul.
We will have more thoughout the day and I will check in from what used to be called Heritage Hall from the Convention. And remember this….no matter how bad your day is going, it cant be as bad as the beating Chris Cross is receiving in the Approval Ratings poll…..
