Slots are filling up for Rajon Rondo’s 2014 basketball camp. Now if you ask why I would post something about a camp for a former Kentucky player, I will say this: I don’t even look at Rondo as a former Wildcat. He is from Louisville, wanted to play at Louisville, and still is in town quite often. Also, there are supposed to be former UofL players at the camp, including Russ Smith. And finally, it’s a basketball camp to help kids out. Have to spread the word on that!
Kentucky is back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since winning the Championship in 2012
They have won 4 National Championships since 1978
They had the #1 recruiting class this year according to ESPN
John Calipari is coaching in his 9th* Sweet 16

Road Through The Tourney:
#9 KSU 56-49 W
#1 Wichita State 78-76 W
#5 Andrew Harrison, 6’6, 215 Lbs, Freshman, Guard
Andrew Harrison was widely regarded as a top 5 player in the class of 2013 with Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, and twin brother Aaron Harrison. In his Freshman year at uk he has put up 11 points per game, 3.8 assists and 0.5 steals per game. Had a season high 26 points vs Tennessee on January 18th. Had a season high 9 assists vs Georgia in the S.E.C. Tournament. Chose Kentucky over Maryland, SMU, Baylor, Kansas and Arizona
Willie Cauley-Stein clearly does not understand the rivalry between UofL and UK. He said it is the same thing as Kansas and Kansas State. To be fair, Cauley-Stein is from Kansas, but to say it’s the same is a bit ridiculous isn’t it? This is what he said to reporters yesterday.
“I think of it as the K-State-KU rivalry. It’s the same thing. The fans are the same, it’s just different teams. It doesn’t really mean much to you if you aren’t from Kentucky. If you aren’t from Kentucky, you don’t understand it. It’s that simple. I have been here two years and I still don’t understand the rivalry. It’s just fun. If you ask a UK fan about the rivalry and then ask a Louisville fan about the rivalry, they say the same kind of trash talk about each other, but just different. It’s the same thing, just on a different side of it. It’s funny because it’s so similar. They are more alike than what they really think. They say the same things.”
Willie also thinks that the lightbulb haircut was a good idea, so there’s that.
