Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Windmills and Zellers. That’s What Indiana Does.

First it was Luke.

Then it was Tyler.

Then it was Cody.

You can thank Steve and Lori Zeller of Washington, Indiana for all three. The Zeller family is to Indiana high school basketball as the Kardashians are to sleeping with guys who play basketball. It’s just a part of who they are. They’re born with it.

In a town of just 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere, Indiana, all three Zeller boys made a name for themselves on the national high school basketball stage. All three were recruited heavily by some of the top programs in the country. Luke went on to play for Notre Dame from 2005 to 2009; Tyler is in his senior season at North Carolina; and Cody is a freshman at Indiana.

And Anthony Davis has the rare assignment of back-to-back games against Zeller brothers. It’s the first time in the history of college basketball that one man has been given such a punishing task.

Two Saturdays.

Two Rivalries.

Two Zellers.

One Eyebrow.

Let’s do this.

    Maybe this time Anthony Davis will talk about guarding Tyler in the post-game?

    The fans in the background of that IU picture must not have had their Beat Kentucky T-shirts yet, they are wearing their empty seat T-shirts.

    Our boys sleepwalk through the first half and are only up 2 at half-time…then turn on the jets and produce another 2nd half high-light show and win by 16.

  27. Enough with the brow stuff
    12:47 pm December 7, 2011 Permalink

    The unibrow stuff for funny for a second. But that has passed, it’s now starting to become insulting. Matt Jones does his show with a unibrow, really? Maybe for a show next season after Ryan Harrow has a good game Matt can ingest helium and talk in a really high pitched voice. That would certainly allow KSTV to talk Cats ‘in the most ridiculous manner possible’.

    Seriously, enough with the brow jokes. . .not funny at all. I guarantee if your son was being called ‘unibrow’ at school you’d be pissed. No way would Davis let us know if he was upset about it. . .he’s taking the high road by playing along but no one would enjoy their nickname being unibrow.

    Indiana just ain’t been right since that game when Mike Davis ran onto the court and got T’d up with Bracey Wright trying to hold the ref’s arms back. He’s running another program into the ground right now with UAB sitting at a scubafart 1-6.

    38) I agree. I seriously don’t understand what the obsession is with this guy’s eyebrow? Do you all want to bang the dude, or just want him to play basketball? Give it a break.
