Jones Brings UofL Cheerleader Flowers

Staying true to his word, Terrence Jones, delivered on his promise. If you all remember March 31st, Jones stated…

Louisville cheerleading coach Todd Sharp said Logue needed stitches before she could return to the court because the wound on the top of her head bled so much.


Jones had no idea he’d injured Logue in the first-half collision, but he was very apologetic after the game.

“Tell her I’m sorry,” Jones said. “I’ll drive down there and tell her myself with some flowers or something.”


Here’s the video of the actual play.

Jones has been amazing in his brief stint following his UK career. He’s stayed after hours to make sure everyone gets an autograph (sometimes 2 hours over the allotted time frame), excellent in the community and as stated above; he’s even backed up every promise. Continue to do BBN proud Terrence. I can’t wait to watch you in the league.

Per Sources…

Per Chad Ford’s latest blog entry, Anthony Davis, Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist and Terrence Jones will all declare for the NBA draft “soon“. Link (insider account required).

Anthony Davis, to me and the rest of civilization, is an absolute lock for the overall #1 pick. Regardless of who is the actual winner of the lottery. Coming back to school for AD, while we’d all love it, would be nothing more than a risk of an injury. His one year of college basketball is something you or I will never forget. Retire his jersey now!

MKG — What can I say? It makes perfect sense for him to leave also. The kid has an unbelievable motor and projected as a top 5 pick (most places have him suited as #2). He too, would be “rolling the dice” with a return to College basketball. Go pursue your dream MKG and trust me, all of BBN will be follow you like a stalker for the rest of your career. I do believe, however, he’d have a 70% chance for a return if #8 never happened.

Terrence Jones, like Mark stated earlier, has played himself into the end of the Lottery selection (13-16). I can’t see him improving his draft stock much more by sticking around for another year at Kentucky. If he continues to play with that fire he developed towards the end of the year, the sky is the limit for Mr. Jones. I’m not 100% sure what position he’ll play at the next level though. I would assume PF, but he has the ability to knock down the three, albeit, an extremely slow release. He still showed he can consistently knock it down. I wish him nothing but the best and I believe I speak for the rest of BBN, he’s making the correct decision also.

Good luck gentlemen and thank you for everything you’ve done for the University of Kentucky.

Now we wait to hear from Teague and Lamb……

My gut says, Teague stays and Lamb leaves (widely reported of his desire to play in the NBA). I’m not sold on Lamb at the next level though (yet), mainly because a shooter is a dime a dozen, he’s slightly undersized for a 2 guard and needs to work on being a floor general (best chance to succeed). Personally, I think both kids should stay because another year would do wonders for their maturity and draft status (weak PG/SG class). The moment we hear something, we’ll report it though. The Teague family, is expected to meet next week and decide together. Remember Jeff (Marquis’ older brother), stayed two years at Wake Forest before declaring. So a return is highly likely.

Boxscore – UK 69, UL 62

Probably the ugliest game I’ve watched in my entire lifetime. These Big East officials should be slapped in the face with a sock full of rocks and punched in the gut repeatedly. This rivalry, where it could be violent at times, was not today.  The majority of these players have known each other for many years.

Does that look like a group that would have ended up like?……..

Heck no!

Thanks for ruining a potentially great game with 51 fouls.

Both teams have plenty of room to grow that’s for sure. Lets just try to enjoy the rest of the season and continue to love this sport. Let’s meet in the Tournament, shall we? 😉


New Polls — #1 Kentucky #4/5 Louisville

Kentucky gained one first place vote in the AP, but lost three 1st place votes in the USA/ESPN poll. Doesn’t make any sense to me, but oh well..what do I know? What more can this team prove? Cards move from 6th in the previous week to 5th in the AP and 4th in the USA/ESPN polls. UNC loses at Kentucky and moves up in the polls, go figure.

Cat’s have a showdown vs. IU this coming weekend and it appears IU really believes they have a serious shot at beating them. Their student section chanted “Beat Ken-tucky!” during a blow out victory over Stetson. Now they’ve created a T-Shirt ….

I will remind you that IU has played the 262nd hardest schedule in the nation. Cats will win by 20…mark that down.


Lady Cats Best Lady Cards, 74-54

Today in Memorial Coliseum, the lady Cats handled the lady Cards pretty easily in front of a sell out crowd. After the Cats took the lead with 15:40 left in the 1st half, they never looked back. The lady Cats, who shot a blistering 10-19 (.526) from the three and 47% from the field couldn’t be stopped. Louisville shouldn’t hold their head low though, they are a solid team and will make some noise when the NCAA tourney comes.

Cats face Duke December 8th and the Cards face Gardner Webb December 10th.
