Sunday Morning Wake Up: CWS, Dominique Hawkins, Nerlens Noel and so much more

@LSUpix

The College World Series finals is set. 

The College World Series championship will be an SEC showdown between LSU and Florida. LSU did the impossible by beating the best team in the country, Oregon State University, in two-straight games to advance to the finals. Florida defeated TCU 3-0 on Saturday night to advance. The first game of the best of three series will begin Monday at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN.

Get ready to hear “The SEC, it just means more” a hundred times over the next few days.

Dominique Hawkins will play in NBA Summer League for the Kings.

Hawkins reached a deal to play with the Sacramento Kings in the Las Vegas Summer League from July 7-17. He’s the fourth undrafted former Wildcat to sign a Summer League deal, joining Isaiah Briscoe (76ers), Isaac Humphries (Wizards) and Derek Willis (Pistons).

The Dallas Mavericks want to re-sign Nerlens Noel.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Mavericks offseason priority is re-signing Noel. After spending two and half seasons in Philadelphia, I am happy to see Noel find a home and a good one.

Kendra Harrison takes first place in the women’s 100m hurdles.

@TeamUSA

Former Kentucky track and field star Kendra Harrison finished first in the women’s 100m hurdles at the U.S. Track and Field Championships in Sacramento on Saturday. She qualifies for the World Championships that will take place in early August in London. Harrison finished in 12.60, beating the second place finisher by 0.08 seconds.

Harrison wasn’t the only former Cat to qualify for Worlds. Andrew Evans took silver in the discuss throw to qualify.

Also, current UK senior Shakeela Saunders earned the bronze in the women’s long jump with a leap of 22 feet, 8 1/2 inches.

Japanese children really know to jump rope. 

Fourteen kids from Fuji Municipal Harada Elementary School in Fuji, Shizuoka, Japan came together to set a new world record for most skips over a single rope in one minute by a team. Yes that world record exists and the kids of Fuji Municpal hold the record. USA kids, you know what to do.

Klay Thompson embarrasses himself in China

Golden State Warrior’s guard Klay Thompson is in China following the NBA championship. Thompson tried to show off to onlookers, but his dunk did not go as planned. Thompson should never be allowed to dunk in China again.

The GoPro angle you never wanted to see

Thanks to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, I now have so many questions from this video he tweeted out on Saturday. I am sure you have the same questions.

USA Today’s Dan Wolken will host KSR tomorrow 

I have always been a fan of Dan Wolken and the work he does at USA Today. However, I heard him speak at a sports media convention in Nashville and came to like him even more. Wolken covers college football for USA Today. I’m sure he will have lots of things to say about SEC football, so tune in.
