Good morning, friends, and happy Memorial Day. Let’s take this opportunity to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The great Jon Scott compiled this list of UK basketball players who were killed in the line of duty: Howard Kinne, James King, James Goforth, Melvin Brewer, Kenneth England, and Walter Johnson. Check out his site for a complete listing of Kentucky players who have served in the military.
Appropriately, the Kentucky National Guard will unveil the monument above today in Frankfort, a labor of love seven years in the making. Shoutout to our own Freddie Maggard for his hard work on the project.
Because of the holiday, there is no new show this morning, but if you still need a KSR fix, we’ve got a great rerun lined up for you. Have no fear; Matt and Ryan will be back tomorrow.
And don’t worry: I’ll be here all day to bring you the latest UK sports news. It’ll be a slow day, but let’s have some fun with it, okay?
