Today on KSR: UK’s All-Stars Shine

Kentucky’s excellent All-Star weekend concluded last night with former Wildcats taking center stage at the Staples Center.

A record-tying four players from the same school were selected to play in the All-Star Game.  Even though injuries kept John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins off the court, Anthony Davis made sure Cousins could shine.  This is what happened when Boogie found out Davis was going to wear his jersey.

The 2017 All-Star Game MVP did not go for 50.  In just 17 minutes Davis had 12 points and 2 rebounds.

Appearing in his first All-Star Game, Karl-Anthony Towns knocked down his first three shots of the game.  He finished his debut with a 17-point, 10-rebound double-double.

Devin Booker did not hang around to watch Sunday night’s game.  After taking the Three-Point Shootout Title, he flew back to Phoenix and posed for one of the coolest photos in the history of photography.

Kentucky was everywhere All-Star Weekend, even in commercials.  There’s still a long way to go before Calipari sees half the roster filled with former players.  This weekend proved it may not be impossible, and solidified UK’s spot as the NBA’s preeminent college basketball program.

Hear from Coach Cal

The Kentucky head basketball coach will not be at the podium to preview Arkansas, he’s passing off those duties to an assistant, but we’ll let you know what he says on this morning’s SEC teleconference and on tonight’s call-in show.

Calipari spent his Sunday evening celebrating.  He was not celebrating the Alabama win, rather his daughter Erin’s birthday.


Lots of Spring Sports Winners

—  The UK baseball team went 4-0 in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Kentucky’s first 4-0 start to the season since 2012.  You can see them at The Cliff this Wednesday vs. Xavier.

—  The UK Softball team also went 4-0 this weekend.  Two of the wins were run-rule victories. Against North Dakota State, Autumn Humes threw a no-hitter in her first career start to lead UK to a 2-0 victory.

—  Technically women’s basketball is a winter sport, but I’ll take this opportunity to tell you Matthew Mitchell’s team lost to No. 8 South Carolina 81-63, despite Maci Morris’ career-high 35 point performance.

—  Swimming and Diving wrapped up their season at the SEC Tournament.  The women finished fourth, the men placed ninth and the Cats took home three individual conference titles. Read more here.

    No mention of the anti Cal article done by Clay Travis either. This homer blog does not do anything objective. Please see below this awesome and accurate article.

      LOL. We may be a homer blog, but trying to call out our objectivity by linking a Clay Travis article is absolutely hilarious. I’m going to assume you’re making a joke, so well done.

      DG is posting this same post and link on several threads here. I wonder if he’s actually Clay Travis just trying to get some extra traffic on his articles.

    Does John Wall look dapper in that 3-piece suit or what! Very nice professional look and a credit to UK hoops.
