Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Today on KSR: Exhale

After a day of refreshing Twitter feeds around the Big Blue Nation, Kentucky fans can finally exhale.

Late last night we learned Reid Travis’ MRI revealed no significant damage in his right knee.  Diagnosed as a knee sprain, the Kentucky power forward will be sidelined for “at least two weeks.”  He should be good to go in time for postseason play.

“We are going to be very conservative with this so he may be out a couple weeks,” John Calipari said in a release. “We hope he will be ready for around the conference tournament or maybe even a little bit before, but I’m happy for Reid that we’re going to get him back.”

As UK fans experience relief, Duke fans are filling their shoes.  The difference: those shoes are exploding.

Zion Williamson went down only one minute into last night’s game at Cameron Indoor Arena.  The superstar has a pair of busted sneakers and a sprained knee.  He did not return.

Carlos Boozer sent well wishes to Zion…National Park?

Without Williamson, North Carolina used the opportunity to beat the crap out of the Blue Devils, 88-72.  It was one of a few crazy games last night around college basketball.

Down Goes LSU

The Tigers lost a dogfight to Florida in Baton Rouge.  LSU had a few chances to avoid the upset, but Tremont Waters missed a potential game-winning three at the end of regulation and a game-tying three in overtime to fall 82-77.  KeVaughn Allen led all scorers with 21 points to knock LSU out of a tie with Tennessee at the top of the SEC standings.

Teddy T

Georgia almost upset Mississippi State.  His Bulldogs had a chance to win the game in overtime, until a fan interfered.  With .5 left on the clock in regulation, a Georgia fan tossed a Teddy bear onto the floor, forcing officials to call a technical foul.  State broke a 67-67 tie with a free throw to secure the win in Athens.

‘Black in Blue’ Premieres

A documentary profiling the four African-Americans who broke the SEC football color barrier at UK will debut tonight on campus.  The tragic and triumphant story of Wilbur Hackett, Nate Northington, Greg Page and Houston Hogg is told by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paul Wagner.

The film screening is free, beginning at 6:30 in the student center at the Worsham Cinema.  Arrive early to secure a seat in what is expected to be a sell out.

UK Hoops out for Revenge

The Kentucky women’s basketball team has a chance to avenge a 74-70 loss to South Carolina when the 16th-ranked Wildcats travel to Columbia. The action tips off on the SEC Network at 7:00 pm.

    Teddy T?

    can they prove it was a Georgia fan that threw it on the floor? Do they even look? Seems like an easy way to show up to an apposing teams arena and throw stuff on the floor to get easy free throws

      To be correct, the opponent wasn’t A&M but Mississippi State so the outcome carried a little more weight. And it was a miniature stuffed Bulldog that hit the floor – which begs the question that the refs couldn’t be sure that it wasn’t a Miss State fan who threw it. If Tom Dumbface was thinking straight he might have tried to make that point in his defense.

      Given the situation and where they were playing, it’s not unreasonable to assume it was a UGA fan. I can’t make myself believe a LSU fan brought that thing and held on to it until just that moment. But the T instead of a warning for one stuffed animal? That’s terrible officiating. In reality, though, it didn’t change the outcome, since the guy had another FT coming anyway..

      the stuffed animal was thrown while MSU was shooting a free throw causing a distraction to the shooter. UGA got a t for that so guy had 2 more ft’s coming. He made the t free throw to give MSU a 1 point lead with .5 {half a second} left. Guy then intentionally missed last ft {his original 2nd attempt} on purpose so there would be no way for UGA to throw a long pass and hit a shot to win. As you can see the bear was way after he released the ft and in no way made him miss. Guy still would have had 1 ft coming, difference is if he makes it UGA can throw ball down court and maybe get a shot off to win.

    What really hurts health is in the upside down is that they lost to a horrible A&M team and not to a good Miss. State team.

    Oh when typing mistakes comeback to bite with irony on top of irony ?????

    First off: how do they know a Georgia fan threw the teddy bear? And if they don’t, and they assess the T because it was in Georgia’s stadium, conceivably, could opposing fans do dumb stuff like this at their opponent’s gym to get a similar outcome? Like, when we play at Tennessee, let’s say it’s 80-80 with 1 second left, could a UK fan throw something on the court to get a T on UT and give us free throws to win the game?

    Second: that dog video has been around for at least a year. My at the time 7 year old showed it to me long ago. Good to know Roush has his finger in the pulse of what is hip in addition to his Dickens-esque flawless writing.

    This entire paragraph makes no sense at all. Good grief. Try again. “Georgia almost upset Mississippi State. His Bulldogs had a chance to win the game in overtime, until a fan interfered. With .5 left on the clock in regulation, a Georgia fan tossed a Teddy bear onto the floor, forcing officials to call a technical foul. State broke a 67-67 tie with a free throw to secure the win in Athens.”

    You’d think Zion had a compound fracture and blood spurted all over spectator Obama the way the media is using every second to talk about it. Reid’s knee? Crickets.
    Gleefully, it backs up Drew’s stats yesterday that no team that relies on just two scorers has won a title in 50 years.

      Well it is the future #1 pick in this years NBA draft who plays for the #1 team in the country and a guy whose maybe the 3rd or 4th best player on the #4 team in the country, who will likely not play in the NBA. Them losing Zion means a lot more than us losing Travis.

    Reid’s has a huge impact on this team, and most of it can’t be measured in statistics. Him being does allow EJ and Nick to gain some confidence and develop right in time before March.
