While you trip over yourself to get on the couch in front of your television, let’s run through some of the other news in the world of UK Athletics and beyond, shall we

De’Aaron Fox sets career-high (among other BBNBA notes)

On day two of the NBA restart down in Orlando, former Kentucky star De’Aaron Fox stole the show, putting up a career-high 39 points on 17-33 shooting to go with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in a 120-129 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Check out the highlights from the most dominant performance of his career:

On the Spurs, Keldon Johnson registered 30 minutes in the win, putting up eight points on 3-7 shooting and 2-4 from three to go with six rebounds, two assists, and a steal.

Elsewhere throughout the league, Devin Booker continued to shine, finishing with 27 points, five rebounds, four assists, and a steal in the Phoenix Suns’ 125-112 win over the Washington Wizards.

To round out former Wildcats, Enes Kanter put up just two points on 1-2 shooting to go with three rebounds and a steal in the Boston Celtics’ 112-119 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. He played just 11 minutes.

Trey Lyles (San Antonio Spurs), Wenyen Gabriel (Portland Trail Blazers), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Dallas Mavericks) did not register a minute for their respective teams.

As for today, Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat), Tyler Herro (Miami Heat), Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKC Thunder), Hamidou Diallo (OKC Thunder), and Nerlens Noel (OKC Thunder) will all make their NBA restart debuts down in the bubble, with Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers) and Patrick Patterson (Los Angeles Clippers) set to return to the floor, as well.

Kentucky basketball players head home

While NBA players continue to navigate their way through the bubble, the Kentucky basketball team is taking a temporary break from their own on campus.

Sources tell KSR that the UK basketball players are taking a one-week break from on-campus activities, with the team set to return to Lexington next weekend.

While the team is headed home, several parents confirmed with KSR that the one-week hiatus is “just a break” and not COVID-19 related. Thus far, Kentucky basketball’s on-campus “bubble” has been widely successful, as players have been kept isolated to the Joe Craft Center and the Wildcat Coal Lodge.

As of today, the plan is to bring players back next weekend, with two parents confirming with KSR that the players will be returning on Sunday, August 9th.

Players originally arrived on campus starting June 28, with Isaiah Jackson being the last to arrive on July 19.
