The Cleveland Cavaliers will have the #1 overall pick when the NBA Draft rolls around in a few weeks. I was hoping to see Nerlens Noel play along side John Wall, but I suppose playing alongside a Dukie that was also a #1 pick won’t be so bad. Good luck in (likely) Cleveland, @NerlensNoel3.
It seems as though Kentucky might not be completely finished with their recruiting class. Word is trickling that Kentucky is looking at a 3 star player named MiKyle McIntosh. McIntosh is playing locally in Jackson, Kentucky. UK potentially has their lineup set, so McIntosh would likely come in as a walk-on if anything. But it [...]
Kansas. Welp, that’s that I guess. Good luck, Andrew. And I’m sorry you didn’t win the National Championship next season.
Today’s the day Andrew Wiggins, who doesn’t like attention, announces his college choice and ends this drawn out, roller coaster of a recruitment. This has been the most tight lipped recruitment in recent history with everyone trying to read between the lines and every school source sure he’s theirs. And it can not come to [...]
There won’t be a press conference, just the trickling of word where Andrew Wiggins will attend college for a season. This eternity of speculation and every school “source” thinking he will play for their school is nearing a close. Only the word of @GrantTraylor stands between conjecture and reality. It will all be over at [...]

The official twitter account of UK basketball tweeted that UK has released the schedule for the 2013-14 season. Of note, there will be a Keightley Classic at Rupp which Robert Morris will participate in.
According to Jerry Tipton, Kentucky received an invite to the (warning: link goes to Jerry Tipton article) Maui Invitational which John Calipari promptly rejected. Tournament Director Dave Odom, the former South Carolina and Wake Forest coach, has been trying to get Calipari back to Lahaina ever since Kentucky participated in 2010. “The invitation was there,” [...]
Apparently, a UNC fan site had a post about not wanting Andrew Wiggins. It basically boils down to not wanting him because he’s a one-and-done and hasn’t committed to anyone yet. I suppose they’re entitled to their own opinion, but to that I say pshaw. Maybe they want someone to stay 2 plus years to [...]
According to Jeff Goodman, Gary Parrish is overrated. He also lets us know that Andrew Wiggins cancelled his in-home visits with Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!? They could be cancelled to reschedule. Or, maybe Wiggins already knows where he wants to go. I still don’t think anyone knows. He could [...]
