Will They Stay or Go

It seems assistant basketball coach Barry Rohrssen has been the rumored target to replace Orlando Antigua on John Calipari’s Kentucky bench. Granted it has been a slow week-long rumble, but everyone is presuming it will happen (and thank you KSR comment kids for demonstrating that Kentucky fans have little basketball knowledge outside their own team). For Rohrssen it is almost...

James Young mulls over decision; Why NBA might be smart option

For most of the 2013-14 college basketball season, most expected the Kentucky Wildcats would be losing freshman forwards Julius Randle and James Young. Randle is projected to go somewhere in the Top 5 of the 2014 NBA Draft, while Young is projected to go somewhere between pick no. 14-25.

Julius Randle: I would have chosen college over the NBA

Julius Randle is the most NBA ready of Kentucky’s neo-Fab 5 freshmen. He’s the only one of the Kentucky Wildcats starting five who could possibly be drafted top five overall in June. If UK wins it all tonight (they’re favored by three) it will only heighten the discussion of the so-called “one and done” policy/NBA Draft minimum age rule. Since John Calipari has a de facto...
