Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: Kevin Love's Shoulder Edition

New, 110 comments

Big Blue News around the internet this morning, including Brandon Ingram's college decision, Malik Monk shines at the EYBL in Lexington, the NBA Playoffs, and Kentucky mourns one of its own.

The Cleveland Cavaliers completed the 4-0 sweep of the Boston Celtics yesterday afternoon but not without some damage. Cavs forward Kevin Love suffered a dislocated shoulder thanks to what looks like a dirt play from Boston's Kelly Olynyk.

Reports vary on when Kevin Love can return, two weeks seems to be the optimistic timetable, but no question that this hurts Cleveland's title chances. That being said, having LeBron James and Kyrie Iriving as your stars has to make you feel good.

The game itself almost devolved into a complete brawl with hard fouls committed by the Cav's Kendrick Perkins and JR Smith. It's a good thing this one is over because another game could have been even uglier than this one.

No official word yet on how Mulder's visit to Kentucky went this weekend, but he was all business. I would be shocked if he isn't a Wildcat by midweek.

On to the Quickies!

I end this edition of the Quickies on a sad note as Big Blue Nation lost one of it's sons over the weekend. Mike Phillips died tragically over the weekend due to an accidental fall at his home. He was 59. He was one of the original Twin Towers, along with Rick Robey, on Kentucky's 1978 national championship team. He was far too young and we all will miss him and are forever grateful for his time at Kentucky.
