Good morning, friends. Been a while since I’ve done one of these. Here’s what we’ve got on tap for your Tuesday.

More updates from the McDonald’s All-American Game festivities

The McDonald’s All-American Game isn’t until tomorrow night, but the fun rolls on in Atlanta. This morning, there will be more practices, followed by a media session in the afternoon. If the first day of practice taught us anything, it’s that Immanuel Quickley isn’t afraid to talk trash and Keldon Johnson is an absolute beast. Maybe they will make EJ Montgomery a BBN cookie like the UK commits did for Kevin Knox last year?

Just saying, it worked.

ICYMI, Quickley was the Co-Champion of the Three-Point Shootout

Kentucky needs shooters next season, and although Tyler Herro is the first shooter you think of in the 2018 class, don’t sleep on Immanuel Quickley, who tied with Duke commit Cam Reddish for first in the Three-Point Shootout:

Meanwhile, as everyone predicted, Zion Williamson won the Slam Dunk Contest. Keldon Johnson couldn’t connect on his first try, but on the second, pulled off this impressive 360-degree slam:

If you haven’t yet, catch up on all of Nick’s excellent reporting from ATL:

I’m still cringing at that Chuck Hayes story.

UK Baseball takes on Miami

Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow, so UK Baseball moved up its game vs. Miami to tonight at 6 p.m. The Bat Cats are coming off a series win over No. 9 Auburn this past weekend and will head to Tuscaloosa to take on Alabama this weekend, so get on out to The Cliff to enjoy some midweek baseball. If you can’t make it, you can watch online through SEC Network+ or listen on 630 AM WLAP.

Will Chris Mack to Louisville finally become official?

I feel like it’s been a foregone conclusion for days. Also, I am not happy with the thought of Bill Murray being a Louisville fan (Murray’s son Luke is an assistant on Mack’s staff at Xavier).

The basketball coaches start meeting with players to discuss NBA decisions

Over the next two days, the UK coaching staff will meet with individual players to discuss their NBA decisions, which will dominate the coming months. Yesterday, Kevin Knox’s dad made waves when he said it’s not a done deal that his son will go to the draft this year because he enjoys school so much, igniting the hopes of fans across the Bluegrass. I have a feeling Calipari will advise him to go since he’s projected to be a late lottery/mid first round pick, but this wouldn’t be the first time Knox and his family have shocked the world.

Matt spent a good portion of his evening talking to those in the know about who will stay and who will go, which is where he’ll start off today’s show. I think that makes it a must-listen, don’t you?

    I can understand why Knox is seriously considering coming back (despite several million reasons to go pro). He really does seem younger than either Diallo or SGA, and it shows in how he carries himself. He just turned 18 back in August, I believe. A lot of kids his age are just graduating high school (did he reclassify, maybe?) Another year to grow up a bit would serve him well in getting his eventual pro career off to a successful start.

      With a birthday in August, parents have to decide whether to let him be one of the youngest kids in his class, or wait until next year and have him be older than everyone else. Both of my kids were like that, and one started a little early and one started a little later. It really depends on the kid, but looks like it worked out fine for Kevin Knox.

      AKA “they tied, and we don’t feel like sending this to overtime because it’s just a meaningless skills exhibition.”
