Good morning, BBN!
Well, it’s back. The consistency of Kentucky Basketball playing every Tuesday is here for the next couple of months, and it’s glorious.
Rob Dillingham made a statement last night with his best game in a Wildcats uniform, scoring 23 points. He was even called the best isolation player in the country by Dennis Gates.

Hard to argue there; he’s so shifty, can score from anywhere on the court, including hitting deep dagger threes, and has handles like very few in the country.
While the offense is great, there’s no ignoring the issues this team continues to have on the defensive end of the court.
Constant blow-bys and not getting their hand up too often on three-point shots. It’s something that I think they will figure out, but it needs to happen sooner rather than later with the way the SEC is shaping up.
Their next game is slated against the 9-5 Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday at 2 pm ET, and it will be their second road conference game.

That’s pretty good... right?
Dillingham scored a season-high 23 points in just 19 minutes of action as the sixth-ranked Wildcats topped the Tigers 90-77 at Rupp Arena.
Hard to beat a Tom Leach call.
It’s never too early to talk about the CFB Top 25
The last undefeated CBB team goes down...
Finally, some good offseason news for the Cubs.
It’s tough being the Coach for the Lakers AND LeBron.
A shocking move, but another team is going to get a great head coach.
Not great for a team from Miami!
Quite the story.
