Some Kentucky all-timers participated in an alumni game at Rupp Arena yesterday. The rosters were cool—Rex Chapman and Tony Delk were on the same side as Karl-Anthony Towns and Trey Lyles—and the action seems to have taken the form of your basic All-Star game: very little defense, lots of fancy passing, your basic…

In the top of the second inning against Louisville, with runners on second and third, the University of Kentucky turned this nifty triple play:
Five university presidents and athletic directors offering their unfiltered thoughts on why the NCAA and its members should hold fast to amateurism, a model that’s landed them all six-figure base salaries, may be the best argument for abolishing the system.
Resident CNN war flack James “Spider” Marks excitedly promised an extended war against Syria, as the visibly engorged retired U.S. Army major general contrasted tonight’s use of more than 50 Tomahawk missiles against John Calipari’s Kentucky basketball program, stating that “this is not [...] one and done.”
According to a report from the Associated Press, Nebraska law enforcement investigators are looking into death threats leveled against John Higgins, the referee whose personal life and career as the owner of an Omaha roofing company have now been the focus of pissbaby Kentucky fans for over a week-and-a-half.
It’s been 10 days now, and some Kentucky fans, when not shoveling out their overflowing diapers, are still making harassing phone calls to and trying to sink the business of longtime referee John Higgins.
As sports fans have come to find out over the years, many officials that work the NCAA regular season and postseason tournaments, like their NBA and NFL counterparts, are not solely referees. Outside of their duties on the court, the vast majority rely careers in other fields to make a living. Unless they’re fan…
The thing about a game-winning buzzer-beater is that for all the elation it brings to the winning side, an equal amount of despair can be found in the losing locker room. As evidence, here is Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox speaking to reporters just after UNC’s Luke Maye ended his season:
UNC-Kentucky was a keeper, a big-name showdown in a tournament dominated by new faces, and a thrilling finish in a month nearly devoid of buzzer-beaters. Malik Monk’s game-tying three with 7.2 seconds remaining was met by Luke Maye’s winner with 0.3 left, and as you can imagine, it was quite the emotional swing for…

Kentucky traveled to Columbia to play SEC basement dwellers Missouri tonight, and the game was uncomfortably close at halftime.

John Calipari was clearly feelin’ it during the Wildcats’ big 82-77 win over Georgia today.

An even less fun place to be is on your way to a noon tip-off after suffering through multiple wake-up calls via fire alarm the night before. This, however, is what the team had to deal with before today’s game against Alabama. From Kyle…
