The college basketball off-season is slowly grinding to a halt, and while most everyone’s focus is slowly beginning to turn to football, it shouldn’t be lost what the SEC did in men’s basketball over the last few months. If anything, it’s only a continuation of what has gone on across the league the last several…

With more than 1600 names in the transfer portal there was essentially no program in the country that was not impacted by either incoming or outgoing transfers.

We’ve gone two days without Kentucky basketball. Tonight the Wildcats were supposed to take on Texas A&M. The Wildcats searched for a replacement opponent, but time the jig is up. John Calipari confirmed Monday night that we’ll have to wait until Saturday to see Kentucky take the court again. Unable to find a team to…

This Week in Kentucky Basketball: Creating Some Momentum

Winning one game doesn’t qualify as a streak and the Kentucky basketball program is not in the business of “close calls” or moral victories. I am distinctly not here to say this team has turned a corner or that you should all of the sudden be clearing your March schedule. However, an opportunity to build…

Ref-haters and anti-chargers, do I have some numbers for you… In light of the Kentucky-Missouri game earlier this week and the complaints about the officiating, spearheaded by Shannon T.

The Aggies’ game vs. Vanderbilt last night was also…

We are technically beyond the halfway point in the season now, but with no Kentucky basketball game today I figured I would take a look around the Southeastern Conference and handout some awards. Typically the league would be considered “down” if Kentucky was just in the middle of the pack. However, with Alabama as a…

New year, new me, right? That’s the exact approach this Kentucky Basketball team is taking heading into SEC play. Today, Isaiah Jackson told reporters he never would have believed Kentucky would start the season 1-6, but the team is treating Saturday’s conference opener vs. Mississippi State as a fresh start. “I would have told them…
