It’s been a fun show thus far as Kentucky won its first two games by a 210-96 margin. The big thing I’ll be watching for today is 3-point shooting. While Chris Livingston and Antonio Reeves have been great in that regard, it’s been a struggle for guys like Sahvir Wheeler and others. Here’s to hoping we see other guys step up here today.
Junior forward Lance Ware missed Game 2 with a shoulder injury but did take part in shootaround today and looks set to give it a go.
Floods strike new blow in place that has known hardship
JACKSON, Ky. (AP) — Evelyn Smith lost everything in the floods that devastated eastern Kentucky, saving only her grandson's muddy tricycle. But she's not planning to leave the mountains that have been her home for 50 years. Like many families in this dense, forested region of hills, deep valleys and meandering streams, Smith's roots run deep. Her family has lived in Knott County for five generations. They've built connections with people that have sustained them, even as an area long mired in poverty has hemorrhaged more jobs with the collapse of the coal industry.
