I didn’t know that.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
  • Stoops aims for balance from offense, just don’t call it the "Air Raid:"

    Without a doubt, he want the offense to put up the high-power passing numbers that Dawson and West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorson are known for – the Mountaineers ranked ninth nationally in passing yards per game in the 2014 regular season – but he also knows running the ball is key to success in the Southeastern Conference.

  • Hawai’i takes 3rd place in the Diamond Head Classic.

  • Wichita State loses to George Washington. Here’s an amazing stat for you — WSU shot 29% from 2-point range and 41% from three. Here’s why that’s interesting — WSU shot 27 3’s and only 34 2’s. They wound up making one more three than they did two-point shots. I’m not sure I can ever recall a game where a team ranked this high did that.

    This also highlights what makes it so hard to beat UK. Kentucky holds teams to around 32% from two, so even if you make a bunch of threes, odds are you aren’t going to make enough to win.

  • John Wall had a big day yesterday, leading his team to victory over the hapless Knicks. But near the end of the game, Quincy Acy (formerly of Baylor) made a flagrant 2 foul on Wall, then tried to punk him. Wall reacted with a shove and got a technical, but Acy go the heave-ho, deservedly.

  • Steph Curry is ridiculous — as in ridiculously good.
