You thought because basketball season is over that we’re finished with sports? Think again.
Tonight Nick Mingione’s Kentucky Wildcats will travel west on I-64 to take on the tenth-ranked Louisville Cardinals. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m. at Jim Patterson Stadium. If you can’t make it out to the ballpark, you can see all the action on Watch ESPN.
It’s not the only thing you have to look forward to this Tuesday.
John Calipari Ain’t Goin Nowhere
Kentucky’s head coach inked a contract that will keep in Lexington for the rest of his coaching days. Calipari said the decision had nothing to do with UCLA rumors. He’s content at Kentucky.
“It had nothing to do with all the other stuff. Every year that I’m here, something at the end of the year happens. Someone’s trying to call or talk,” Calipari said. “You think of what we’ve built, the culture that we’ve built. We’ve done it all kind of different ways. We’ve got good kids. The academics, that we’re allowed to give lifetime scholarships. We’re allowed to bring these kids back. We insure these kids. This is a situation and a culture that’s taken time to build. Where else would I want to coach?”
The Coaching Carousel Turns
Without Cal in the picture at UCLA, the Bruins are turning to TCU’s Jamie Dixon and Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin. If neither of those options workout, Texas’ Shaka Smart is reportedly up next.
Meanwhile, there’s some movement in the SEC. Texas A&M firmly has their sights set on Buzz Williams, reportedly offering him $3.5 million a year. Vanderbilt is turning to a familiar name, Memphis assistant coach Jerry Stackhouse. Jon Rothstein reports the Commodores are finalizing a deal to secure the former North Carolina Tar Heel and G-League Coach of the Year.

KSR’s Dog of the Day is…
…this very good boy who only accepts greatness on the hardwood.
If y’all want to see something hilarious, my dog Cooper lets out a huge howl when you make a basket, but let’s out a disappointed groan when you miss.
