Good Sunday morning, BBN. I hope everyone’s having a great weekend! Sorry for the slight delay, I’m getting off to a late start. Let’s jump right into to our morning links.
– Aaron Harrison continues to get a lot of attention around the Charlotte Hornets. As Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer reporter, said: “he’s the first intriguing prospect (at Hornets camp) in years.” Take a look at how one FanSided writer feels he will fit right in with the teal & purple.
– This morning, the South Bend Tribune highlighted a few of the Summer League players fighting to keep their NBA dreams alive. Among them are two former Wildcats. The first is Keith Bogans, who now is 35 years old and the oldest player in Las Vegas. The other, Josh Harrellson, who is hoping to earn at least a camp invite from a team in need. Find out what the Tribune had to say about them here.
– Well with the SEC’s football media days complete, teams can now look forward to the season kicking-off. Players and coaches will begin working towards their goals, hoping to have a successful season. For the interest surrounding Kentucky at media days, well according to this Atlanta article, there wasn’t any. It’s true Kentucky hasn’t had a winning SEC season since 1977. However, just as this article mentions, UK’s home game attendance would rank at the top in any other conference. I get the wrong vibes from this writer I guess, but I’d use it as motivation if I was a player.
– Kentucky high school football finally made national news yesterday, as players from Louisville Male won the National Select 7-on-7 championship. Male would go on to defeat national powerhouse Hoover, after falling to them once in a double elimination tournament. USA Today has you covered with the details here. Congrats guys!
