Today on KSR: The Brow is Back



Look who’s in town! NBA superstar Anthony Davis has returned to Lexington to host a basketball camp at Lexington Christian Academy (if you hurry, you can still register). Last night, he swung by the Joe Craft Center last night to say hey to Coach Cal and Floyd’s 99 Barbershop on Malabu Drive to get his picture taken with the giant new mural bearing his image:

I’ve seen plenty of pictures of this mural since it was completed last month, but haven’t fully appreciated just how big it is until now. Very cool. Maybe Davis will play a little pickup while he’s in town? Please??

Early morning basketball workouts have begun

Did you see a group of really tall guys running around campus this morning? That was the UK Basketball team, which has started their summer workouts with strength and conditioning coach Rob Strong:

My nephews rocked John Calipari’s satellite camp in Danville

Allow me to be a proud aunt for a second and brag on my nephews, who tore up the Danville stop of the John Calipari satellite camp tour. My oldest nephew hit a three over Nick Richards and Immanuel Quickley:

…While his younger brother got the best of Keldon Johnson:

I’m headed to Danville today to get a detailed recap of the camp for you, so look for that on the site early next week.

Can someone send Rick Bozich some seasonings?

Because that is bland AF.

Today’s Something Good

…comes to us from Matt Lea, a Mississippi State fan who surprised his father, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, with a trip to watch the Bulldogs in the College World Series for Father’s Day. This story hits close to home for me in ways I’ll share in the coming days, but needless to say, I’ll be cheering for Gary Henderson’s squad this weekend:

Hail State.

US Open! World Cup!

Will Tiger rebound from a horrible start to make the cut at the US Open? Ehh, it’s not looking great so far. You can watch live at Fox’s coverage doesn’t start until 4:30 p.m. ET. Dustin Johnson is currently tied for first with Russell Henley at -2.

Meanwhile Egypt and Uruguay are scoreless in the first game of day at the World Cup. At 11 a.m., Morocco plays Iran followed by Portugal vs. Spain at 2 p.m. Both games are on Fox, so you can essentially spend your day watching sports.

    The first game of the World Cup was yesterday when Russia beat Saudi Arabia 5 – 0. The host nation always plays their game the day before the rest of competition starts.

      Article says “first game of the day”, not sure if that was there before or not. Also, why is FIBA U-whatever ahead of Portugal-Spain!?!
