Jodie Meeks must've thought the Oklahoma City Thunder was Tennessee, because he had a similarly impressive game against them, lighting the Thunder up for 42 points last night. Jodie is averaging almost 20 per game right now.

  • Five teams with something to prove in championship week. Kentucky tops the list. No kidding.

  • Kentucky's not the only "dream team" struggling this season:

    Yet if it's fair to criticize Cal, should Kansas coach Bill Self not be similarly scrutinized? After all, he's already lost eight games with a team that features two of the three players expected to go 1-2-3 in the 2014 NBA Draft, assuming Jayhawk freshmen Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid are both one-and-done. Beyond that, he has a junior point guard in Naadir Tharpe, an all-conference level power forward in sophomore Perry Ellis and super sixth man on his interior front line in senior transfer Tarik Black, a former star for Memphis.


    If there's any good news for Kentucky it's this: The last two schools to start No. 1 and fall out of the top 25 -- UCLA in 1966 and Indiana in 1980 -- won it all the following year.

    There's no doubt Kansas has been better than Kentucky, though. We'll deal with next year after this one.

  • I've seen a lot of this. My advice to Wildcats fans having the mentality described therein would be to get a grip, and get over your bad selves. If you're willing to ride the wave of success, you'd better be willing to ride out the storms.

  • "Just keep making that pass." From his lips to Gods ear...

  • History is not in Kentucky's favor. No, it isn't, but it's what we have. If Kentucky does not get better now, and against all rational expectations, then this post-season will be extremely short.

  • Jordan Brand Classic rosters to be released today.

  • Aaron Perkins for KSR tries to argue that Kentucky makes other teams better. I'm not sold on that idea.
