Five Points Pizza’s Top 10: Beat Georgia


Are you in Nashville for the SEC Tournament? Do you love pizza? Of course you do. Come taste the best pizza in Music City at Five Points Pizza in East Nashville. Nestled in the popular Five Points district two miles from downtown, Five Points Pizza is the perfect place to grab a slice and a pint, or split a pie with friends. Their New York style dough is made from scratch daily, aged in-house, hand-tossed, topped with their hand-crushed plum tomato sauce and house-shredded mozzarella, and baked to order on bricks in old-school gas-fired deck ovens.

Between the creative daily slice specials, the rotating local beer taps, and the fresh salads, there’s always something new to try at Five Points. And don’t get me started on their famous garlic knots. If heaven was a food, it would be Five Points’ hand-cut New York style dough tied in knots, tossed in olive oil, fresh garlic and parmesan, and served with a side of marinara.

Do yourself a favor this weekend and escape the crowds downtown and grab an Uber/Lyft or make the short drive to Five Points Pizza at 1012 Woodland Street. In a hurry? Grab a slice from their to-go window. Do me a favor and tell them Tyler from KSR sent you.

Five Points Pizza, 1012 Woodland Street, Nashville TN 37206 – HOURS: Sun-Thurs 11 am – 1 am; Fri, Sat 11 am – 3 am – (615) 915-4174

Now that I really want pizza for breakfast, let’s just jump right in, because we’re only four hours from tip.

1. The team will not do a shootaround this morning

Of all of John Calipari’s remarks yesterday, I only found one that was noteworthy: because of the early tip time, the team will NOT do a shootaround this morning. They didn’t do one before the Texas A&M game last week either, resulting in another slow start. Cal said he’s putting the responsibility on his players to get focused before the game.

“They gotta be responsible. They gotta come early. We have an hour to get loose. Get loose. You got an hour. Get up early, have a nice breakfast, don’t go back to sleep, get ready. This is about your responsibility about yourself to our team. So, yeah, I don’t feel that we’ll shootaround.”

This worries me for one reason: on Tuesday, Malik Monk — who had his worst game of the season vs. Texas A&M — preached the importance of shootarounds for early games.

“We didn’t have one at Texas (A&M) and we didn’t have one (vs.) UCLA. Those are the only two games we didn’t have shootarounds, but UCLA I think I played pretty good. Then the Texas game was horrible. I think we need shootarounds, for sure. I think we need shootarounds.”

Hmm. Please don’t let this come back to bite us.

2. Yante Maten will play

Maten played 26 minutes vs. Tennessee yesterday and grabbed 12 points and 5 rebounds. For the most part, he looked good, but the Bulldogs were so sloppy otherwise that Mark Fox worried his “mishandled” Maten’s return.

“I don’t think I managed his reentry into our team as well as I hoped. I thought we were very out of rhythm and had more turnovers at the half than we’ve been averaging the last couple games. We got to bridge that gap a little better than we did tonight.”

3. JJ Frazier wasn’t his best vs. Tennessee, which means he will be today vs. Kentucky

Frazier’s scored 59 points in his two games for Kentucky this season, but was uncharacteristically errant around the rim yesterday vs. Tennessee, going 4-13 from the floor for 17 points. Frazier told reporters he was “awful” vs. the Vols, but we know what he’s capable of against the Cats. Like going off for 36 points like he did in Athens last month.

Not only is today Frazier’s last game against Kentucky, he can help put Georgia on the bubble with a win, so you know he’s going to come out firing.

4. Kentucky’s a 10-point favorite

And I’m not going to lie, that makes me nervous as hell. Or maybe I’m just nervous as hell as is. Sounds like I need a…

5. Swaggy hype video

KyWildcatsTV always manages to make me feel better. While we’re at it, here’s a lighthearted video of the guys hanging out in the SEC gift suite yesterday as well:

Note to self: find that suite.

7. Larry Warford’s headed to the Saints

One quick football note: Add another to the list of former Cats in the Big Easy. After four years with the Detroit Lions, Larry Warford will sign with the New Orleans Saints. As a free agent, Warford was expected to command about $8 million per season, and it appears the Lions just couldn’t afford that. Congrats to the big man on getting paid AND getting to live in New Orleans. That, my friends, is the life.

8. Ladies: Be aware of the Clear Bag Policy


9. Congrats to our #KSRScavengerHunt winner!

We had some valiant efforts to win two tickets to today’s game from Guy On The Corner Tickets, but no one was as creative as Kristen Browning, who photobombed Rob Bromley, did the CATS chant at Tequila Cowboy, requested Wagon Wheel, hung out with the Bang This twins, and when Kindly wasn’t working at Tootsie’s, toasted her picture instead. Congrats to Kristen and her pal, who will bring that enthusiasm to Bridgestone Arena this afternoon:

    Never had that pizza. The best I’ve had was at a Una pizza in Bowling Green when I was visiting WKU friends….in all fairness, I may have been starving at the time.
    Like when I go to the Reds games; I’m usually starving by the 4th inning so I think their hot dogs are the best in the world.

      Not to mention the game is usually over by the 4th inning.

      So true, where are Johnny Bench and Pete Rose when you need them.

      Bench is selling Blue-Emu cream..”and you won’t stink”. Charlie Hustle is still being Charlie Hustle. The 70’s were awesome. Reds were the Big Red Machine with back to back World Championships in 75/76 and the Cats won the NCAA title in 78. Sadly the Reds have only won one title since then and the future doesn’t look good. Thank goodness for UK basketball.

      I loved the 90 World Series team. One of my earliest baseball memories. I do think the Reds will be pretty good in a year or two, though. They have talent in the pipeline. Senzel, Garrett, Winker, Stephenson, etc.

      Agree on the 90 team. That title run was totally unexpected. The Eric Davis home run in game 1 of the WS is one of my all time favorite sports moments.

    Now, about that picture of the scavenger hunt winner…’s way too early for me to be seeing double.

    Might party in NO but you couldn’t pay me to live there. It’s a snake pit. Poverty, crime, murder, education…all much worse than cities of comparable size. Plus the humidity and its in Louisiana which ranked dead last in states to live in. Good luck though, Larry!

    Always have wondered how you see these student athletes running around with Gucci bags and nice watches and stuff. Guess things like the “gift suite” is how! Genuinely have wondered about it for a long time.
