TEAMS:
Most people who know basketball know that the in-state rivalry between the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals is pretty intense, and with the two teams meeting in Saturday’s National Semifinal with a trip to the National Championship game on the line, the antagonism between the warring fanbases is ramping up.  But there has to be a limit to how far UK and UofL fans are willing to take their dislike for each other, and I think fighting while receiving dialysis treatment may just be that limit. On Monday police had to be called to a Georgetown Dialysis Clinic after a a UK fan was punched by a UofL fan when the two disagreed over who would win the Battle for the Bluegrass redux on Saturday.  Why didn’t the Wildcats fan, one Ed Wilson, punch Cards fan Charles Taylor after Taylor hit him in the face?  Well, he would have, except he was hooked up to his dialysis machine at the time. I’ll take “Things You Don’t See Everyday at a Dialysis Clinic” for $400, Alex. From WKYT… Off...

John Calipari isn’t a fan of the ’21 Jump Street’ movie

John Calipari knows he isn’t a movie critic but when he was asked on Saturday to give an opinion on a movie he saw with his team on Thursday, he gave his honest opinion: it was “awful.” The culprit the evidently stunk up the movie theater? “21 Jump Street,” the Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum big screen comedy adaptation of the late 80′s, early 90′s network TV show. While...

Davis savoring, surprised at attention at Kentucky

Anthony Davis is a fun-loving teenager who has swatted away and dunked enough basketballs to become the most dominant player in the college ranks. And that's just in one season at Kentucky. By most accounts he would be the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft if he leaves school. His steady play and calm demeanor makes it easy to forget he just turned 19 on March 11. But...

Kentucky sports advantage in Final Four

In the press conference after his team beat Baylor to advance for the Final Four, Kentucky Coach John Calipari asked, "Is the floor going to be raised (in the Super Dome)? Does anybody know?" When was confirmed that the floor would, indeed, be elevated a couple of feet above field level for the games, Cal said, "That makes it harder. When they raise that floor, now...

Louisville's Smith both helps, hurts Louisville

Louisville guard Russ Smith is the Cardinals' offensive catalyst who plays entirely by feel - often frustrating coach Rick Pitino. Yet, Pitino knows he can't win without his frenetic playmaker. The sophomore is averaging 13.3 points per game in the NCAA tournament and his play will be pivotal when Louisville faces Kentucky in Saturday's rematch at the Final Four in...

Kuric Has A Great Opportunity On Saturday

When Louisville and Kentucky met earlier this season on New Year’s Eve, Cardinal senior Kyle Kuric didn’t exactly have his best game. In fact, it’s fair to argue that the 69-62 loss to Kentucky earlier this season may have been Kuric’s worst career performance. In 38 minutes of action, he finished with just 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assists, and 4 fouls. To make matters worse...

Kyle Kuric lights up Louisville presser

Kyle Kuric turned out to be the highlight of Rick Pitino’s press conference, looking for all the world like a happy-go-luck college kid as he entered the room, wearing his adidas Final Four cap backwards.The University of Louisville senior managed to answer a couple of questions before Kenny Klein, the sports information director, may a quick motion with his hands, quietly suggesting...

Kentucky’s run to the Final Four

The Kentucky Wildcats have looked unbeatable in their run to the final four.  As well as they are playing I don’t know if some of the bad NBA teams could beat them.  There is really no weakness to their game right now.  Guards Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb are playing their best basketball of the season.  Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd Gilchrist could be the first...

Pitino sees things differently

Rick Pitino will probably never be seen wearing glasses court side, and certainly not wire rims. The University of Louisville basketball coach preferring the heavy dark plexi style, saves them exclusively for press conferences and other situations where he wants to be analytical, nostalgic or philosophical. The Clark Kent look suits him well when he’s not performing Superman-like...

Kentucky-Louisville: The Coaches are the Story

  Rick Pitino and John Calipari.  If you haven’t heard, they are coaching against each other in a rather big game this Saturday.  Two teams from the same state have never previously played each other in the Final Four.  And this isn’t just any state, it’s Kentucky; where they don’t care much about football, baseball, or hockey. [...]

Cal to avoid hype, warns against attacking UK

If there’s one thing Kentucky coach John Calipari knows he won’t do this week, it’s feed the UK-Louisville rivalry hype.

Kuric plays key role against UK

If Louisville is going win Saturday's Final Four 'Superdome Showdown' against Kentucky, Kyle Kuric will have to contribute more to the effort than he did in the Cardinals 69-62 loss to the Wildcats on December 31 in Rupp Arena.
