University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The Twins’ Saturday News and Views


David J. Phillip | Associated Press

Who else could have been honored with tonight’s news and views? I mean, Tim Duncan and Al Pacino were each born on this day, and it’s Flag Day in the Faroe Islands AND Swaziland, but hey, Aaron n’ Andrew–you guys earned this post.

Your eyes may be begging you for mercy; my corneas or pupils or something are nearly bleeding from reading about the Harrison Twins all day, but one can never have too much of a good thing. So let’s get started shall we?


The Twins are back in town

After a tumultuous regular season, the Harrison twins led us on the most incredible postseason run of my lifetime. Big shot after big shot fell, and we found ourselves one game from a title, and while it was a disappointing finish, it was a magical ride.

With Willie Cauley-Stein a projected lottery pick announcing his return, followed by Marcus Lee, Alex Poythress and Dakari Johnson–and the additions of Trey Lyles and Karl Towns in the post, Kentucky will by far the largest, deepest team down low in college basketball. But without the Harrisons’ announcement this afternoon, inexperience and depth in the backcourt would have been a different story.

Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, Aaron, Andrew, and Dominique Hawkins–not too shabby.

Here’s what the twins themselves had to say.

Per Aaron:

I’m coming back for a second season in large part because last year’s title run was special, but we still have unfinished business.

Per Andrew:

I’m returning for my sophomore season because I want to win a national title.

Twitter made it even real-errrrr.

Per John Calipari:

I’m excited about Aaron and Andrew’s decision to return for next season. Their postseason play was a result of the improvement they made all season and displayed what they’re capable of doing on the court. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with them during the summer and watch them lead next year’s team.

The preseason polls are already lovin’ it. Let’s hold off on the hype game just a wee bit here in the Commonwealth shall we? *buys 17 40-0 shirts (kidding, kidding).

You can check out some more reactions from the national media here. There are many to be had. Many.


Blue-White game

It’s a huge day for Kentucky football tomorrow, especially from a recruiting/fan support standpoint in Stoops’s second year at the helm, and BBN should be in high spirits. Despite a group of wide receivers that is beyond depleted, the chance to get a glimpse of who’s the current frontrunner to be leading the offense this fall–Drew Barker, Patrick Towles, Max Smith, your cousin Jim who lives down the street from Neal Brown, whoever it may be. Additionally, it’s a chance to see what should be a very improved offense in the second year of Brown’s system at Kentucky.

If you recall, this game was a huge statement for several recruits, including one Drew Barker, and could make an impact tomorrow as well. Damien Harris will be in town, along with several others; while the capactity is at 42,000 due to construction, we should be able to fill up the place with blue.

It’s gonna be a pretty day, and there are not ponies running in circles at Keeneland, so #WhyNot?

The Cat Walk is at 1:45 and the game kicks off at 3:30. Get there early for a chance to check out the team, tailgate, and get in on the action.



Pour it up pour it up, that’s how we ball out

Have you heard the news!? James Young was sitting courtside by/with/beside Rihanna as the Nets-Raptors game. Standard. Were they there “together?” This lowly blogger can only assume Drake gave Mr. Young hookup on those seats. Anyone who thinks Rihanna is dating a teenager is a bit dense. Regardless–KENTUCKY EFFECT.

Celebrate Hanukkah dated Rihannakkha.

RihannaGroovinBrooklyn (3)

Alrighty thennnn


John Wallin’

John Wall played 37 minutes for the Wizards in game 3 of their series against the Bulls in Washington; despite 23-points, 7 assists, and 4 steals, it was not enough as the Bulls squeaked out a win on 35 points from Mike Dunleavy (WHAT!?!?) to bring the series to 2-1. Mike. Dunleavy.

PS: Colin Cowherd is still an idiot in case you needed a reminder.


More reasons to love Trey Lyles

As if you needed more uplifting Kentucky news, FOX 59 in Indianapolis has a great segment on Trey Lyles and the work he’s done in his community, speaking to troubled kids at Clarence Farrington Elementary School. Leading his high school, Arsenal Tech, to its first ever state championship, committing to Kentucky, all while maintaining a 3.8 GPA–I think that qualifies Trey as a role model. Kudos to you young man.


Hillbilly Days

If you didn’t get the chance to see Nerlens Noel and Julius Randle at Hillbilly Days in Pikeville Friday, you’re still in luck. They will be around Saturday as well, with Nerlens signing autographs from 10:00 a.m. to noon and Randle from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

I’m gonna go celebrate Rihannakkha or some such nonsense. Have a lovely Friday BBN.

    Just saw a comment on ESPN with someone asking if Calipari actually hurt players drafts stocks which is why everyone was staying. xD Calipari could literally hand out money to the haters and they would complain it’s not enough. He cannot win.

      *correction* He can’t win at least amongst the media and haters. But be sure as hell can win on the court.

    James has way more will power than any of us. Kudos to him for fighting the urge to stare at that see through shirt, we all know how difficult it was.

    This is my first time seeing Rihanna, and she’s only OK. Not sure why everyone fawns over her, there are many better looking black women out there, several where I work. She just has money and fame, who cares?

    It might have been Drake that did this but I think it was Jay-Z and he is tryign to get James to sign with his agency.

    If you look hard enough while she is “squirmy” Young does a slow “gulp”…… wonder if his mom is wearing the cheetah is why he is trying to be all “cool” like.

    She also looks a little put off that she cant get his attention……now she know how Cal feels when he is talking to team during the Wichita State game in the last timeout…………

    Am I the only one who has watched that gif like a thousand times? I find it fascinating. There is just so much going on: there is the hottest chick alive, partial nudity, a UK stud, a cheetah on thre prowl, innocent contact between a hottie and a young UK stud, a pro basketball game with killer seats, 57 rings on the hottest chick, oral innuendos with the hottest chick, the difficulty of Young trying not to take a quick peek downward. Just a lot going on there…I need to watch the clip again now.
