Duke managed to edge out Kentucky and land five-star recruit Zion Williamson on Saturday, meaning the Blue Devils now have the top three high school players in the country from the class of 2018. This left Wildcats coach John Calipari facing some questions about his recruiting strategy at a press conference on Monday.
Kentucky traveled to Columbia to play SEC basement dwellers Missouri tonight, and the game was uncomfortably close at halftime.

Today on his radio show, Mike Francesa was talking some shit about Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari. "He's not a classic X's and O's guy," he said in his particular way.
