Blue Pride: Wildcats Leave Mark Despite Loss

March 28th, 2010
KentuckyKentucky fans typically aren't ones for moral victories. After all, when your program has 2,023 victories, 13 Final Four appearances and seven national titles, you get accustomed to winning where it matters most...on the scoreboard.

But this year has been different. A new coach. A new system. New players. Even new uniforms. So it stands to reason that even though disappointment abounds in the Bluegrass State following the Cats' hard-fought loss to a gritty West Virginia squad in the Elite Eight, there's still plenty of reasons for the Cats to still hold their heads high.

Vanderbilt's A.J. OgilvyLast year, every team in the SEC had plenty of time to watch the Sweet 16 from their couches, as not a single team advanced past the first weekend, confirming what everyone knew all along...the SEC just flat out wasn't good last year.

Kentucky's Postseason Could be a Roller-coaster

March 2nd, 2010
Kentucky's DeMarcus CousinsEvery year, CBS concludes their coverage of the NCAA Tournament with “One Shining Moment”, the sappy video montage that shows the highlights, lowlights, emotions and passion that make March Madness so great. Monster dunks. Clutch three-pointers. Buzzer-beaters. Teary-eyed players and coaches. You name it- it's on there.

SEC News & Notes: Blocks Record, POY, More

February 19th, 2010
Mississippi State's Jarvis VarnadoSome SEC News & Notes, as I am trapped inside with around 18 inches of snow on the ground here in Cincinnati. (Yes, I realize other areas of the country have much more than that, but this gives me an excuse to be lazy and stay in front of the television watching college basketball). So without further ado, here's what's happening around the league.

For Patrick Patterson, Less is More

February 18th, 2010
Patrick Patterson - UKAs the 2009 NBA Draft rolled around, there was one name conspicuously absent - Kentucky forward Patrick Patterson. This had to be a mistake, right? After all, Patterson was a McDonald's All-American in high school, had a terrific freshman year,  and then had upped his averages to 17 points and nine board per game as a sophomore. He received All-American nominations, and was a lock to be selected in the first round. He had no reason to come back to school. Besides, playing second, or third, or even fourth fiddle to Kentucky's heralded freshmen would only hurt his draft stock, right?

SEC Tournament Watch: Who Will Be Dancing?

February 11th, 2010
Vanderbilt guard Jermaine BealValentine’s Day for many people involves an intimate dinner, flowers, perhaps some candy, maybe even a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the snow. But for college basketball fans – it means that teams have one month left to earn their dance cards. One more month of proving their worth against conference opponents, trying to build momentum as they enter March.

The Bracketology field is based on how the tourney looks "as of this moment."

DeMarcus Cousins: Big Cuz Emerging From Wall's Shadow

February 3rd, 2010
Kentucky's DeMarcus CousinsRemember Greg Oden?

Of course you do. He was one the most hyped big men to enter college in the last 10 years, billed as a superstar long before he ever even made his college decision. He graced magazine covers as a sophomore in high school, and was compared to everyone from Patrick Ewing to David Robinson to Tim Duncan. In his one and only year in college, he averaged 15.9 points and 9.7 rebounds per game, and helped lead Ohio State to the national championship game before departing to the NBA, where he was the top overall pick.
