With National Signing Day set for Wednesday, Jon Rothstein breaks down the potential suitors for Nerlens Noel, the top big man in the Class of 2012.
Fresh off his first NCAA championship, Kentucky head coach John Calipari insists he’s staying in the Commonwealth. But that doesn’t mean the Knicks won’t perform their due diligence.
Not many players can go 1-10 from the field and be the best player on the floor — but most players aren’t Anthony Davis.
No matter where Anthony Davis and his buddies go to make their millions, their ol’ Kentucky home will long remember this championship season.
Only one person has been in the type of high-profile position in sports that John Callipari is in and handled it with such poise, and that was Joe Torre when he was manager of the New York Yankees.
The Buckeyes don’t wow you offensively but are exceptionally tough and seem to land every 50-50 ball. On Saturday, that will be the difference.
Multiple sources say there is more than a legitimate chance of Kentucky landing the top two prospects in the Class of 2012: 6-foot-10 shot blocker Nerlens Noel and lefty wing Shabazz Muhammad.
A major element in Saturday’s Final Four showdown between Louisville and Kentucky will be the Cardinals’ match up zone.
Rick Pitino and John Calipari have met before in the Final Four — it was 16 years ago in 1996 when Pitino was at Kentucky and Calipari was at Umass — but this is different.
John Calipari has never lost at Rupp Arena since he’s been the head coach at Kentucky. And that trend will likely continue on Saturday against the Commodores.
Some people told me I was crazy when I made that statement prior to Kentucky’s win over Louisville on Saturday but when you watch “MKG” play, it’s tough not to see why he’s more valuable than anyone else in college basketball.
The highly anticipated showdown between arguably the nation’s two most talented rosters should come down to a battle of toughness and outside shooting.
There are absolutely no excuses for the Bearcats’ 56-54 loss to Presbyterian. But this team desperately needs to get their full complement of able bodies together if they want to be playing solid basketball at the start of the Big East season.
Very few times in life do the stars align perfectly, but that’s exactly what happened Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
There’s no questioning that this group of Wildcats has the potential to be John Calipari’s most talented team ever.
