Congratulations to Arkansas on winning the Cotton Bowl.
As we await the tip off of the South Carolina Gamecocks at Kentucky Wildcats, here are a few links to read, and talk about. Feel free to discuss any college basketball action also, or whatever else sports-related you might care to share.
Kyle Wiltjer – Wiltjer has played double-digit minutes in six consecutive contests … He has missed all three of his long-range shots over the last two games after making 8-of-19 the previous four games (42.1 percent) … In his last 40 minutes of play, covering three games, Wiltjer has grabbed five rebounds.
Nice work by Ken as always.
Darius Miller became the 58th Wildcat to join the 1,000 point club this week, but can you name the player who has scored the most points in school history without ever posting a 20-point game?
My guess: Ralph Beard.
The university confirmed that O’Brien signed a five-year contract that will be worth $2.3 million annually and will include built-in five-percent raises per year. In 2011, Joe Paterno was scheduled to earn $1.02 million, so obviously the price of doing business since Penn State’s last hire more than four decades ago.
To me, Davis is the prize of this draft. As a Junior in high school, he was a talented guard – until he had a massive growth spurt. Now he’s a big man with a solid basketball skills to go with amazing height and energy that is making him a defensive force.
