Watch Miles Bridges throw down this nasty windmill off the glass at the Nike Global Challenge.
Bridges, one of UK’s top targets in the 2016 class, had a nasty dunk over the weekend at the Nike Global Challenge in Chicago. Watch the dunk and the reaction it draws from his teammates:
ICYMI: Kentucky made Harry Giles’ top five.
Giles trimmed his list from eight to five last night, eliminating Ohio State, Syracuse and UNLV for UK, Duke, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Kansas.

The No. 1 player in the class hopes to make a decision before beginning his senior season at Wesleyan Christian Academy in North Carolina, but he won’t force it if he’s not ready.
Markelle Fultz plans to read Rick Pitino’s book soon.
Fultz told Scout.com he plans to pick up a copy of Pitino’s “The One Day Contract” soon and give it a read:
One of the top targets in the Class of 2016 – Markelle Fultz – said a recent conversation with Pitino has him going out to purchase the most recent book the Hall of Fame coach published – “The One Day Contract.”
“Im going to read it for sure,” Fultz said. “I have a good relationship with coach Pitino. He’s such a good guy. I was talking with him and he was telling me about it. He didn’t say go read it, but I think it would be good for me.
“He told me if you live you life on a one-day contract, that’s how you get the best out of life. I really think that’s something I need to read and I think it’s something that can help me in life.” [Cardinal Authority]
The five-star guard, who recently said no offer means more than the one he got from Kentucky, is also considering UofL. If he were to somehow end up there, he can count on following Pitino’s advice toward another one-day contract… in the NBA.
Davonte Robinson to visit Notre Dame this week.
Lexington’s Davonte Robinson, a UK commit, plans to visit Notre Dame this week. The three-star cornerback from Henry Clay committed to Kentucky last October, then received an offer from Notre Dame in the spring and is at least taking a look at the Irish. Robinson was at UK’s camp over the weekend and was going to visit South Bend yesterday, but that visit has been postposed to later this week.
Can Kentucky land Kobe Smith soon?
The three-star defensive tackle decommitted from NC State while visiting Lexington on Friday. The Cats are certainly among his leaders at this point and the staff needs to strike while the iron is hot, although a message from Smith on Twitter suggests he wants to take his time with the process.
Tate Leavitt looks great in a UK uniform.
Kentucky’s offensive line is going to be LOADED with size, strength and talent in a couple years.
