It looks like the weather is going to keep most of us inside on Friday, so why not acquaint yourself with a future Cat while you’re hibernating? ESPNU will televise Malik Monk and Bentonville’s game vs. El Dorado Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET. I’ll actually be in attendance to see Malik after watching the Cats play in Fayetteville the previous night, so if there’s wifi, I’ll check in and give you guy some behind-the-scenes scoop.
Last night, Monk scored 45 points in Bentonville’s overtime win over Springdale. He was 14-27 from the floor and an impressive 15-17 from the free throw line, leading Bentonville back from 13 down in the third quarter. Last weekend, he talked to ESPN’s Phil Murphy about his game and what he’s doing to get ready for Kentucky:
See you Friday, Malik.
