NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Midwest Regional-Auburn vs Kentucky Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

When PJ Washington returned to the Kentucky Wildcats, I don’t think many of us knew just how good he would be. We saw glimpses of it in his freshman season, but the complete domination that he showed down the stretch was something new altogether.

He was rewarded with a trip to the Elite Eight and the recognition of being a consensus All American. He’s the first Cat to be a consensus All American sense Malik Monk did it two years ago.

It’s not first team, but being recognized by the four major outlets as being third team is still quite the achievement. He is joined by Kyle Guy, DeAndre Hunter, Dedric Lawson, and Brandon Clarke.

Congrats, PJ. Now we wait for his official NBA Draft announcement which whill surely be that he will turn pro.

Buzz Williams headed to Texas A&M | CBS- This is a great hire for the Aggies and, in my opinion, Billy Kennedy wouldn’t have been let go unless they knew they were going to get Williams.

Bryce Harper homers in return to DC | Sporting News- Harper was greeted with a chorus of boos as he made his return to the team that drafted him. But he got the last laugh as he homered in the victory for his new team.

Bobby Petrino left a disaster at UofL | Sports Illustrated- Only one person on the staff had Petrino’s cell phone number and the players didn’t even know where his office was. Big claps for Tom Jurich for rehiring the scumbag.
