Well, instead of going out like Wildcats, Kentucky went out like a farm animal last night in Georgia. Prepping for an NIT invitation in 3...2...1...

Tweet of the Morning:

So you're saying that last night's loss to a sub .500 Georgia team wasn't a bad loss? In what universe? I want to go there -- now.

    Now imagine if, in addition to all of the camera angles and setups we have in college hoops, we could get camera footage from officials. They’re on the court, surrounded by the fans, just feet or inches away from the players, and their eyes are naturally (obviously) trained on the most important parts of the game. It’s a ready-made incursion inside the invisible bubble that separates you from the game. The barriers are gone.

    Now imagine officials willing to wear this device. You can’t, can you? Neither can I.

  • Bobcats pleased as No. 2 pick Michael Kidd-Gilchrist gains confidence with his jump shot // Fox News

    Dunlap said the biggest modification in Kidd-Gilchrist’s shot is he’s releasing the ball with his fingertips instead of the palm of his hand. He also said his release point is slightly higher now, thus creating a loftier arc on his shot than when he came into the league.
    Why someone never fixed the jerky motion in his jump shot when he was younger remains a mystery. When the Bobcats drafted him Dunlap felt as if it would be a three-year process for Kidd-Gilchrist to develop a more fluid release.

  • Is sports bubble about to burst? // ESPN

    Money has allowed college football and basketball to look nonsensical as conferences dissolve and familiarity disintegrates. The matchups no longer reflect geographical continuity, and schools have forsaken many of the rivalries and relationships and premises that built their multimillion-dollar athletic departments.

    Truth, forsooth.

    "When I saw the kid going that way, I was like, ‘No, he’s not. No, he’s not … Oh, yes he is,’" Millwood coach Varryl Franklin recalled. "I couldn’t believe it."

    You talk about something tough to live down. How would you like to have to deal with this mistake in high school?
