Decision season officially tipped off yesterday afternoon when P.J. Washington became the first Kentucky underclassman to declare for the NBA Draft. The small forward will not hire an agent. There are a few reasons why yesterday’s announcement has many believing he will return to UK after participating in the NBA Combine.
Few expected Washington to be the first domino to fall. Reports indicated that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander would make a decision last night, but that has been pushed back until next Monday. What that means, no one knows.
The biggest question mark and most exciting news from yesterday comes from Kevin Knox. John Calipari met with the family of Kentucky’s leading scorer to pitch a sophomore comeback. When you read Knox Sr.’s comments to Kyle Tucker, it’s impossible to quell expectations. Once believed to be a sure-thing, maybe Knox will resist the NBA Draft for one more year to get a coveted National Championship.
We will know Knox’s decision by Friday, but it could happen at any moment. Keep your ears peeled for a “MEOW” from Drew on the KSR app.
Of course they did. An explosive offensive performance in the middle of a sloppy game, Kentucky took a 6-4 lead in the bottom of the fourth and never looked back. It’s the 20th win of the season for the tenth-ranked Bat Cats, and their final victory over UofL at The Cliff.
This weekend they will host South Carolina. The program brings plenty of prowess, and their coach is tougher than nails. He eats baseballs for breakfast. See it and believe it.

A Champion is Crowned
The Funkhouser Situation returns today to complete the controversial Disney-Pixar Bracket. Not gonna lie, listening to it gave me a case of the Disney fever. I don’t think I’ll be able to shake it until I re-watch Aladdin, Lion King and Toy Story.
A Champion Geeks
Notre Dame’s buzzer-beating star gained a couple of fans last weekend, most notably Kobe. Arike Ogunbowale lost it when she saw him Tweet her following the semifinal win. Now he follows her and like most people, she really doesn’t really know how to handle it.
Now that Kobe follows me anytime I tweet or retweet something I think to myself, “I wonder if Kobe wants to see this on his timeline”. ?
