Harrison Barnes was terrible, and worse than terrible he was selfish. He is said to be an NBA talent, and I'll tell you this: Harrison Barnes has a talent for taking NBA shots. Spinning, fading jumpers from 19 feet? He can shoot those. Make them? Well, no. He can't make them. Not Friday, anyway, when he was guarded by non-NBA defenders who were four or five inches smaller, and 25 to 35 pounds lighter. This was the kind of game Barnes should have had his way -- as Tyler Zeller had his way -- but Barnes couldn't get out of his own way.Now and then Gregg Doyel is just too funny NOT to be read...
My good friend Bob Rotella came in town last night and brought along a true winner Keegan Bradley along with the Wanamaker Trophy he won. Here's a picture of Bob, Keegan, Larry Brown and the Wanamaker Trophy, all true champions. Also, as I’ve said before, I have the greatest job in basketball at any level. Why would I be interested in another job? I love being the coach of the Commonwealth’s Team. To the Big Blue Nation and all the recruits that are coming or want to come, I will be at Kentucky.From Coach Cal's Facebook page, he is quick to put the kibosh on the NBA rumors.
Cats to Midwest Regional ??Gregg Anthony said this today. How could that happen? They have earned a trip to Atlanta. There would likely be an Occupy NCAA Headquarters movement.

1) Duke at North Carolina, 9 p.m. - If it's not the best rivalry in college hoops, it's No. 2 behind UK-Louisville. The Blue Devils are in danger of losing two straight. [Kudos to Goodman. He is one of the few that at least acknowledges UK-UL is at least as significant as Duke-UNC. Made me smile, and hate Goodman less. -- ed.]Night Court: KY dominates, Ohio State sneaks by - CBSSports.com

These kids have so much potential that their talent eventually turns kinetic. They’ll spend parts of games playing with the omnidirectional chaos of young Dobermans pulling on different leashes, but they’ll eventually rip you to shreds.http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-triangle/post/_/id/9944/kentuckys-kids-grow-up-against-kansas
I have officially committed to the University of Michigan #Go blue!!Tweeted by @MitchMcGary33 One-time Kentucky target Mitch McGary committed to Michigan today. Even though he dropped the Wildcats earlier this month, Kentucky fans should be happy at this announcement. After all, McGary picked the Wolverines over Duke and Florida, two of UK's most hated rivals. McGary's senior year teammate at Brewster Academy, T.J. Warren, opted for NC State yesterday. Warren was also an ex-Kentucky target. Strike two names off the recruiting big board.
