Hello? Is anyone there? It’s me, Jack, with the basketball news. I guess everyone’s occupied with national signing day. You know you’re doing a great job as head football coach at Kentucky when you continue to steal the spotlight from the basketball team this late in the season. Nevertheless, for the sake of the few of you out there still thinking about the South Carolina game, I will forge ahead with the basketball roundup.
-Kentucky rolled over South Carolina last night 77-52 in Rupp Arena. There were stretches of poor play, but on the whole Kentucky played an excellent game. Julius Mays led the team in scoring for the second game in a row with 15 points. Once again, Nerlens was Nerlens, posting 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. 3 other Cats scored in double figures, including Willie Cauley-Stein, who scored 13 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 22 minutes of the bench.
-Sports Illustrated’s Andy Glockner released his Bracket Watch yesterday, and like Lunardi he puts Kentucky as a 9 seed. In Glockner’s hypothetical world Kentucky would play San Diego State followed by top seeded Michigan.
-But wait, Glockner’s not done just yet. He also released his Bubble Watch yesterday and it’s not looking good for the SEC. Florida is the only “lock,” the “should be in” category is empty and Kentucky is joined by Missouri, Mississippi and Alabama in the “in the mix” category. He what he has to say about the Cats…
Kentucky (15-6, 6-2; RPI: 48, SOS: 59)
Credit to the Wildcats for going to Oxford and getting a win they very much needed, then doubling up the road pleasure with a revenge win at Texas A&M. South Carolina and Auburn should get (man)handled at Rupp, and the Cats could be 8-2 heading to Florida and Tennessee next week. GW: Maryland (N), at Ole Miss BL: None, really
That’s it for now, folks.
