For the Bookers, basketball, life provide incredible bond

  Devin Booker had a choice. He was one of the best shooters in the nation, a prize for any college basketball coach, and as he sat before a crowd at his high school Moss Point, Mississippi, he could have picked anywhere in the country to play college basketball.

Unfortunately for Mizzou, No. 1 UK isn't overlooking trip to Columbia

Kentucky has embarrassed plenty of schools during its perfect start, but among those from major conferences, Missouri may have suffered the worst of it. The toughest part for the Tigers is that none of John Calipari's Wildcats will be declaring for the NBA draft before Missouri has to face them again. After a 49-point thumping just over two weeks ago, the SEC foes meet again Thursday...

Kentucky (15-0, 2-0) was taken to overtime by Mississippi before winning 89-86 last Tuesday and then needed two OTs for a 70-64 victory...
