Hello, friends. In honor of the Masters this weekend, the gorgeous view of the clubhouse at Augusta National will bring us to the links today. In case you missed it, former Cat J.B. Holmes missed the cut by one stroke, but had the shot of the tournament so far when he chipped in on No. 18 yesterday.
– Some high praise coming from Karl-Anthony Towns and Karlito about incoming star Isaiah Briscoe. Towns told Ben Roberts the only thing he knows for sure about Briscoe is he’s a winner. Sounds like a perfect match for Kentucky.
– While most of the recruits have been of the domestic variety, Coach Cal has gone outside the borders to find Tai Wynyard from New Zealand. Wynyard is currently out in Portland for the Nike Hoops Summit, where he’s undergoing the Americanization process.
– The Bat Cats are facing off against Arkansas this weekend. The Razorbacks got the best of Kentucky in the series opener 5-3 last night thanks to a couple of homers. You can follow along with the action on ukathletics.com Best of luck to the boys this weekend.
– Steve Jones breaks down the class of 2015, between who has signed with Kentucky and who is still available. For what it’s worth my guess is we’ll see Malik Newman, Stephen Zimmerman and Brandon Ingram in Rupp Arena next year.
– Just a reminder, UK football will be holding an open practice today at noon. Make sure to follow all the rules listed, we don’t want to see Stoops’ mad face this early in the year.
