LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky freshman guard Alex Legion informed head coach Billy Gillispie Monday night of his desire to transfer.
“It’s unfortunate and not what I wanted to hear, but I understand,” Gillispie said.
“We met with Alex and his mother Friday, and she informed us of her desire to seek a release for her son. Shortly after that meeting, Alex told me that he still wanted to be a part of our program. He played in the game against North Carolina Saturday and seemed happy when I spoke with him Sunday.”
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky men’s basketball signed highly-rated high school seniors DeAndre Liggins and Darius Miller to National Letters of Intent Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period for college basketball.
"This is a great day for us; I am really excited about today,” said Billy Gillispie. “These guys are really good players, but they are better people and I am really excited about that. Their families are excited about being a part of Kentucky basketball."
And then there were two…
I finally conclude the BCS portion of this year's Top 25 Player Rankings. Out of all the leagues, the SEC was perhaps the hardest to figure out. The guys at the bottomof the Top 25 aren't much better than the guys Next in Line.. and then some guys that I left out such as Steven Hill, Jai Lucas, and Andrew Ogilvy have a strong claim as well. Which brings me to next point: these rankings were never intended to project NBA Draft or future potential. If so, guys like Sonny Weems or Alonzo Gee might very well be at the top.
Overall Rank: #28
Conference Rank: #4 SEC
2006-07: 22-12, 9-7, 4th East
2006-07 postseason: NCAA
