Rise and shine, BBN! Friday is finally here, which means we’re just a few short hours away from the weekend (much-needed for me, personally) being here.
Let’s get the day started right with the biggest news and headlines…
Kentucky WBB knocks off No. 13 South Carolina
For the first time in the careers of Kentucky senior stars Maci Morris and Taylor Murray, the UK Hoops squad managed to take down South Carolina by a final score of 65-57.
The Cats were led once again by freshman superstar Rhyne Howard and guard Taylor Murray, with each scoring 17 points in the victory. After starting the game 0-8, Morris also still managed to finish the evening with 12 points.
With the win, Kentucky (22-5) has now won five games in a row, all while snapping the Gamecocks’ seven-game winning streak in the SEC.
The Cats will take on the LSU Tigers this Sunday, Feb. 24, for Senior Day at Memorial Coliseum. You can check them out on SEC Network+ at 2:00 p.m.

“The Journey” is back
Another win for the Kentucky men’s basketball team means yet another chapter of “The Journey” for our viewing pleasure.
And once again, the video crew at UK Athletics put on a show.
Take a look at Chapter 26, where we get an inside look at Kentucky’s victory over Missouri on the road on Tuesday:
"You win on the road in this league, you got something done."

Coach Cal checks out KSBar and Grille
Last night, Kentucky head coach John Calipari and his wife, Ellen, made a pit stop at our very own KSBar and Grille for dinner.
After the meal, one of the restaurant’s servers wanted to make sure she got a picture with the real star of the show… Ellen.
Big thanks to @UKCoachCalipari and Ellen for coming in for dinner tonight! Kaitlyn asked Ellen if she would be in the picture because "she's the real star". #BBN #KSBarAndGrille pic.twitter.com/kdVz8Ir2Ku

Any guesses on what they ordered? Coach Cal seems like a smoked brisket kind of guy.

Lonnie Johnson says he’s the best CB in the draft
After finding himself near the bottom (if at all) of most mock drafts going into this past season, Kentucky cornerback Lonnie Johnson has skyrocketed all the way up to first-round status.
If you ask him, he’s the best corner in the entire NFL Draft and deserves to be the first taken off the board.
