John Wall continues to live up to the hype, scoring 25 in a win over UConn and leading Kentucky to a 9-0 record. Hope he liked playing at Madison Square Garden, because he'll be able to see it across the river from New Jersey next year.

Congrats to Stuart Schweigert on his first win in a few years, across multiple sports. It's Thursday: prepare your anus.
