BEST OF MAXIM
Nerlens Noel isn't getting many RSVP's to his block parties.
In fact, opponents prefer to avoid the Kentucky freshman whenever making a trip to the basket.
Noel has been dominating defensively since Southeastern Conference play began, blocking 49 shots in seven league games. His 12 rejections in Tuesday night's 87-74 victory over No. 16 Mississippi set a school record...
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Freshman Nerlens Noel had a season-high 19 points and Julius Mays also scored 19, including five in overtime, to lead Kentucky to a 72-68 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.
The Wildcats (15-6, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) led by one point before Mays made two free throws with 15 seconds left. Texas A&M (13-8, 3-5) had a chance to tie it after...
I don’t know how many of you actually watched the Super Bowl in its power-delayed entirety but, if you did, you might have seen miss this advertisement for Kentucky’s football program: When you consider one 30-second spot for the Super Bowl cost a whopping $4 million, you have to wonder what the Wildcats were thinking?

Fresh off a tough road win against MSU, the Aggies return home to host the Kentucky Wildcats who are looking for revenge after Texas A&M left Rupp Arena with a 12-point victory three weeks ago. Here's a preview of today's game that tops at 5:00 PM central.
Kentucky's Nerlens Noel is among 12 players announced by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association as a mid-season candidate for the Wayman Tisdale Award honoring the nation's top freshman player of the 2012-13 season.
Kentucky's Nerlens Noel made it three consecutive SEC Freshman of the Week awards on Monday when the league honored him for his performances at Ole Miss and Texas A&M.
Wright State transfer and grad student, Julius Mays came to Kentucky to play his last year of eligibility. Granted a wavier by the NCAA because Wright State did not offer his area of study. Against the Aggies, Mays stepped up like a senior should. A senior that Kentucky desperately needs.
Basketball is a game of runs, and the beginning of Kentucky/Texas A&M was the definition...
Even the darkest storms have silver linings.
Granted Kentuckys lackluster 15-6 record isnt the equivalent of a hurricane or a tornado or even a nasty noreaster.
