Kentucky Wildcats fans have a lot to be excited about in the present, as they’re taking on their hated rival Louisville in the 2012 Final Four, but last night’s McDonald’s All-American Game also might have made UK fans think about the future for a bit. Usually, you don’t think about next year’s recruiting class until the season is over. However, the way incoming UK freshmen Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress performed in the exhibition brought thoughts of next year here already. And perhaps it helped in the recruiting of Muhammad Shabazz? Who’s narrowed his college choices down to four. Muhammad, Goodwin and Poythress in the same recruiting class? “That’s a great possibility. It would be a really sick trio if I did come to Kentucky. So I’m really looking at that closely, and knowing there’s some really great players going there,” Muhammad said. Archie Goodwin was Mr. Basketball in the state of Arkanasas, and one of the best perimeter shooters in the nation. Has he used this week a...

Miller's reserve role bolstered Kentucky

Losing his starting job hasn't kept Kentucky senior Darius Miller from providing the leadership that has kept the freshman-laden Wildcats on track for a national championship. When the freshmen needed help finding their classes, Miller was there. When it was time to work out, Miller made sure everyone was on time. When he needed to sit for the good of the team, Miller took a...

Civil War: Kentucky vs. Louisville in Final Four

Kentucky coach John Calipari likes to say there are no rivalry games at this point in the season. Try telling that to the Bluegrass State, where basketball's version of the civil war - Kentucky vs. Louisville, winner plays for the NCAA title - has so divided the small state that senior citizens have actually come to fisticuffs. Basketball purists may argue that Duke-North Carolina...

The Kentucky Wildcats cannot beat a pro team

For the past couple of weeks, we have had different people give their opinion on just how good the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team is. They are wonderfully talented, and seem to be in control of their own destiny heading into the Final Four this Saturday after only losing 2 games this season. Anthony Davis seems to be the surefire #1 pick in this years draft, while Michael Kidd...

Kentucky not allowed to go out and play until they finish their Native America diorama

NEW ORLEANS—The Kentucky Wildcats may be favored to win this year’s national championship, but if they plan on going out to play basketball against in-state rival Louisville on Saturday, they’ll first have to complete their diorama for Professor Keating’s Native American Studies course that is due next Thursday. “They know the rules,” said Kentucky coach John Calipari...

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...

Final Four Portrait: Kentucky Wildcats

The Kentucky Wildcats are the top ranked team in the nation. Nobody can really argue with their #1 status. They have a guady 36-2 record heading into this Final Four. They’re but a few better sequences away from being unblemished and chasing history in New Orleans. Had they hit their free throws in the final minute in Bloomington, there is no Christian Watford game winner, and...

Cheerleaders Of The Final Four: Kentucky Cheerleader Lindsey!

We’re going to end our Cheerleaders of the Final Four preview with the tournament’s odds-on favorite: the Kentucky Wildcats. I think we all expected the ‘Cats to be here, so it’s no surprise the Bluegrass State is taking over Bourbon Street. What do we know about Lindsey? She’s about to have her cheerleader routine analyzed by 75,000 fans at the Final Four. And on TV....

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the spice in Kentucky's offensive recipe

Let's be honest. Kentucky has a lot of weapons. John Calipari's offense makes that a necessity. He recruits so that he has four players on the floor who can attack off the dribble, and he recruits at a high enough level that he can force mis-matches with his elite players. Terrence Jones, when he's on, can be a point-forward matchup nightmare. Anthony Davis doesn'...

Video: UConn Women Advance To 5th Straight Final Four

For the better part of the first half, it looked as though the UConn Huskies women's basketball team wouldn't get to the Final Four. They started out quickly only to see the Kentucky Wildcats battle back. But as we've seen for the entire season, when UConn clamps down on defense and plays UConn basketball, the other teams are in trouble. That strong second half defensive...
