  • You may have heard that the North Carolina Tar Heels did not fare so well in their opener in the Bahamas. I want to point out that they are also playing vastly inferior competition when compared to Kentucky.

  • Vanderbilt loses Dai-Jon Parker. He apparently did something that the school, or the basketball program, were unwilling to tolerate. This is a major setback for Vandy, who has suffered an increasing number of setbacks lately.
