Did you hear about Dean Smith leaving $200 to all of the lettermen who ever played for him in his will for a nice dinner out? This is one of the most beautiful gestures I have seen a college coach make, and is worthy of a headline and the lead story here at the very least.

Bravo, Coach Smith. Bravo.

Tweet of the Morning

I tweet so rarely, I’ve never included one of my own, but I have to admit, this one felt good.

Your Quickies:

Kentucky football
Kentucky basketball
  • Aaron Harrison dislocated a finger on his non-shooting hand (left) last night, and popped it back in himself. He says he’ll be fine, but I’ll bet it hurts like crap right now.

  • Mike DeCourcy says all the sturm und drang about the trash talk from WVU was all noise that meant nothing — Kentucky was always going to get this victory:

    Here’s the thing: The Wildcats would have done this on Thursday night — marauding their way toward the Midwest Region final Saturday against Notre Dame — had the West Virginia players knocked on their locker room door the day before with bouquets of roses.

  • Coach Cal talks about defeating West Virginia:

  • Devin Booker’s tweet in response to Daxter Miles Jr.’s comment about 36-1 goes viral. Well, that happens.
