I was scrolling through Twitter this morning and hoping today held some merit and happiness following yesterday’s tragic events (yes, I’m talking about college basketball). Fortunately for you and me I learned that it indeed is a glorious day: National Cookie Day. So whether you’re a store bought or home made type of person, get out there and grab some treats on one of the few days a year you have a legitimate excuse to shamelessly shovel dozens of cookies into your mouth. While you do that, we at KSR are going to keep you up to date on all of the important UK sports news you need. Now, on to a little recap.
Kentucky lost to UCLA yesterday and yes, it still sucks.
Obviously no one was happy with the outcome of Kentucky v. UCLA game, aside from every person who hates Kentucky Basketball. You know the basis of what went down (and if you don’t, read Tyler Thompson’s recap here) so let’s skip to what’s to come. The guys have another tough game on Wednesday when Valparaiso comes to Rupp Arena. The Crusaders just beat a Top 25 team so this is looking like it will be quite the competitive matchup.
But hey, at least we had a really sweet intro video.

UK Football: Bowl and Commitment Watch
One positive of the game yesterday came when the football team was honored at halftime following their big W against Louisville. There was a big recruiting presence at the game yesterday so we’re on commitment watch, as always, in case any decisions are made in the coming days. UK is also about to officially find out where they’re going bowling some time today. Reports are that the BBN should be booking rooms in Jacksonville for UK v. Georgia Tech in the TaxSlayer Bowl, but we’ll have the official word here as soon as it’s out.
UK Women’s basketball is at Louisville today
Today the ladies of No. 17 UK Hoops are facing off against No. 7 Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center at 2:00 p.m. The team recently beat a top 15 Oklahoma team at Memorial Coliseum, so we’ll see if they can bring that same fight to Louisville and a victory home to the Bluegrass. Haley and Savannah will be there for KSR to keep you up to date!To get you hype, here’s a video of some half-court warmup shots from yesterday.
