Good morning, friends. To everyone returning to school /work tomorrow, I’m sorry. Fortunately, you still have one more day to enjoy the break. Unfortunately, it won’t feature any Kentucky basketball. Life isn’t always fair. Some links:
– Foxsports.com ran a nice piece about Willie Cauley-Stein’s emergence as a leader for the #1 Wildcats. Worth noting: in a season where Willie is earning Naismith Trophy hype, he’s second on the team in scoring, rebounding, and blocks. This group’s pretty good.
– Here we have an Indianapolis writer speculating over who will make the Final Four, which will be held in the city. Spoiler: he likes Kentucky’s chances. The best part: he says that Indiana fans “rather shake hands with skunk” than see UK win another title, but the Final Four is worth attending to witness a “historical coronation.” It’s a fun year, folks.
– The 11th ranked Kentucky Wildcat hoops team will face Ole Miss today at 2 PM. Here’s a brief review of the game and a source for some live updates. You go girls.
– Finally, what better way to close out the break than to laugh at UNC? Here’s a recent report about the academic scandal that is STILL being investigated by the NCAA. They’re taking their sweet time, no?
