Five Points Pizza’s Snowy Saturday Top 10


Are you in Nashville for the SEC Tournament? Do you love pizza? Of course you do. Come taste the best pizza in Music City at Five Points Pizza in East Nashville. Nestled in the popular Five Points district two miles from downtown, Five Points Pizza is the perfect place to grab a slice and a pint, or split a pie with friends. Their New York style dough is made from scratch daily, aged in-house, hand-tossed, topped with their hand-crushed plum tomato sauce and house-shredded mozzarella, and baked to order on bricks in old-school gas-fired deck ovens.

Between the creative daily slice specials, the rotating local beer taps, and the fresh salads, there’s always something new to try at Five Points. And don’t get me started on their famous garlic knots. If heaven was a food, it would be Five Points’ hand-cut New York style dough tied in knots, tossed in olive oil, fresh garlic and parmesan, and served with a side of marinara.

Do yourself a favor this weekend and escape the crowds downtown and grab an Uber/Lyft or make the short drive to Five Points Pizza at 1012 Woodland Street. In a hurry? Grab a slice from their to-go window. Do me a favor and tell them Tyler from KSR sent you.

Five Points Pizza, 1012 Woodland Street, Nashville TN 37206 – HOURS: Sun-Thurs 11 am – 1 am; Fri, Sat 11 am – 3 am – (615) 915-4174

It’s Snowing

I hope you brought your snow boots to Nashville.  After a few days of 70-degree weather, we get to celebrate winter on SEC Tournament Saturday.  I doubted the weathermen all week.  Now, my car is covered in snow.  Thanks, Bill Meck.

Relive Yesterday’s Win

We Want Bama

The Crimson Tide upset SEC player of the Year Sindarius Thornwell and South Carolina to get a chance to square up with Kentucky in the SEC Tournament semifinals.  The other side of the bracket was much, much crazier.  Vanderbilt beat Florida in overtime, taking down the Gators for the third time this year.  If the Cats win again, they’ll play either Vanderbilt or Arkansas.  Not too shabby.

Briscoe is Sick


After scoring 20 points, Isaiah Briscoe said he has the flu.  The team dealt with sickness earlier in the year.  Even though we don’t want more of that going around, if the flu gets Briscoe buckets, I am willing to support whatever it takes to ensure success.

Monk Can’t Buy a Bucket

Two bad shooting games normally doesn’t qualify as a “slump,” but an exception is made when Malik Monk scores only two points.  It’s the fewest amount of points Monk ever remembers coring in a game.  “Man, never.  I don’t think I ever did.  It’ll be alright though, we won,” Monk said yesterday.

The early tip-off has eliminated Kentucky’s pregame shoot-around.  Since UK’s 11:00 a.m. tip-off with Texas A&M, Monk has scored just eight points.  Monk will not have a shoot-around today either.  John Calipari said it’s the players’ job to get ready for the game.

“This is a team that we need to rely on energy, and that is their job to get themselves ready to do that,” Calipari said at yesterday’s postgame press conference.  “Our job is to come up with a game plan and a plan B and plan C just in case you need it.”

Today’s Tale of the Tape


Stoops, Marrow Get Another Commit

Four-star tight end Brenden Bates became the fifth member of the 2018 recruiting class yesterday.  The 6’5″ athlete from Cincinnati Moeller fills a position of need.  Watch him do work here.

UK Women’s Signee is a Buzzer-Beating State Champ

Future Wildcat Tatyana Wyatt helped her school win their first state championship with this clutch bucket.

This is Weird

Indiana took a ten-point loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten Tournament, potentially ending Dwight Schrute’s Tom Crean’s tenure as the Hoosier’s head coach.  After the game, one fan didn’t let him forget how bad he was at IU.

KSR is LIVE at Tin Roof

Matt and the KSR crew return to Tin Roof Broadway for the KSR Pregame Show, starting at 10:30 ET.  Turn your radio dial to 630 WLAP to get prepared for today’s semifinal matchup with Alabama.

    I enjoy making fun of Crean as much as anyone, but I have to admit I felt a little sorry for him while watching that.

    Considering Cream said the same thing to a former IU assistant a few years ago, I have to laugh at the irony

      And then Crean apparently is trying to get the guy thrown out. Smh

    The highlight video showed Briscoe with the rest of the team. I would think if he’s got the flu there would be some sort of quarantine to prevent spreading it to other players, especially considering what the next few weeks (hopefully) hold.

    Hope he gets well soon, he sure had a game yesterday!
