Stayed Up Too Late Watching The Open’s Friday Morning Wakeup

FullSizeRender

We need to get everyone on the same timezone when there’s a major golf tournament being played. I know it’s up to the sun and all that scientific stuff, but it’s really inconvenient when one of the best events in golf is going on across the pond when we’re all supposed to be asleep back here in the States.

Last night, I made the mistake of pounding black coffee around midnight to stay up to watch some of The Open. It seemed like a good idea at the time; however, I didn’t take into consideration the fact I am responsible for all content on KentuckySportsRadio.com from 8 am to 11 pm today. I’m back on the coffee train, but we have a long way to go together. Forgive me if I sneak in a nap a little later and miss out on something important.

Also from the world of golf: Kent Bulle is tied for the lead at this weekend’s Web event in Illinois. My man fired a 30 on his back nine to finish at 7-under for the day. Let’s do that again, KB.

 

Labissiere and Cauley-Stein back in summer league action today.

Today is consolation day out in Las Vegas, and Sacramento is up first in the Friday games. Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will tip off at 4 pm against San Antonio in the last game for the Kings this summer. It’s also the last opportunity to get a win as the team is 0-4 so far. Unfortunately I don’t think it is televised.

Tyler Ulis vs. Jamal Murray on Saturday.

You’re going to want to have eyeballs on a television Saturday when the Suns and Nuggets meet in the quarterfinals of the summer league. That’s Tyler Ulis versus Jamal Murray, in case you didn’t pick that up.

Tip-off is set for 3 pm on a channel to be named later.

Ulis and Murray balled last night with 20 points each.

Ulis had another huge game for the Suns with 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting with eight assists, three rebounds and an uncharacteristic four turnovers.  Afterwards, he said he felt the need to step up as a scorer with Devin Booker and Marquese Chriss sitting out.

“It felt like Kentucky again,” he said. “Me and Jamal (Murray) had to do a lot of the scoring, so I tried to step up in that role this game. When Devin and Marquese come back it’s gonna be a lot more in the flow of the game, probably take less shots.”

Meanwhile, Jamal Murray had a big game of his own. He scored 20 points to lead all scorers in a 20-point win over the Utah Jazz (sans Trey Lyles). That new three-point line doesn’t seem to be a problem for him:

John Calipari was out ‘cruitin’ last night.

Cal was spotted with Coach Justus at Lake Point Indoor Pavilion in Emerson, Ga. for the Under Armour Association Finals. Javonte Smart, a five-star point guard in the 2018 class, was among the prospects they evaluated.

Kentucky picked fourth in the East by SEC media.

No votes for winning the conference title, but the Cats did get some love over three other schools in the preseason SEC East poll:

School Points
Tennessee (225) 2167
Florida (57) 1891
Georgia (45) 1860
Kentucky 933
Vanderbilt (2) 810
Missouri 807
South Carolina (2) 800

Lexington Burger Week will be the death of me.

If you follow me on the Tweeter, you know it’s been a long week of burger sampling. I’m not well. Help.

Rankings coming soon!

The winner of the KSR Chain Restaurant Tournament will be decided today!

Tune in to the show this morning as the guys narrow it down from the Sweet 16 to the grand champion. They will be coming to you live from __________________.

    Could finish fourth in the East and still not make a bowl… Gotta get that first game vs. Southern Miss and I don’t think it comes easy. Hope they’re ready for the Golden Eagles. Also: Chick-fil-a all the way!
