5 thoughts on UK-Vandy game

Here are five quick thoughts on the University of Kentucky's 60-58 victory at Vanderbilt on Thursday night.

1. Kentucky got lucky. We all know (even if it seemed to take Bob Knight forever to figure it out) that Nerlens Noel shot with 17 seconds left should not have counted because the shot clock had expired before he released the ball. Still, sometimes it takes a little luck to win a road game in the SEC and that's exactly what UK got against the Commodores.

Friday night roundup

Here is a roundup of last night's high school basketball games:


Shelby County 69, Beth Haven 45: The Rockets (4-9) started 2013 with their second straight victory, a 24-point victory over the host Bearcats (6-9).

Senior forward Michael Barry scored a game-high 20 points, 12 in Shelby County's 22-point first quarter. Junior guard Kipp Moore and freshman forward James Gordon tallied 10 points apiece for the Rockets, who led 35-25 at halftime then blew the game open with a 25-point third quarter.

Would Sugar Bowl victory be bigger than '91 Fiesta Bowl?

The University of Louisville football team, ranked 22nd in the Associated Press Top 25, takes on fourth-ranked Florida at 8:30 p.m. tonight in the Sugar Bowl. If the Cardinals win there's no question it would be a gigantic upset. In fact, there's no question it would be the biggest upset of all the college bowl games so far. However my question for UofL fans (and anyone else who wants to play along) is this, would a victory over the Gators tonight be bigger than the Cards' victory over Alabama in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 1, 1991?

No, I say.

My apologies

I just wanted to say sorry that I haven't been able to be at any sporting events - or Tweet about them - this week, but unfortunately I've been sidelined by the flu.

Thanksgiving breakfast with Titans

Collins will have an open-to-the-public football practice, called the Titan Thanksgiving Football Final Four Pigskin Practice, from 9-10 a.m. Thursday morning at Titans Stadium. It will be Collins’ regular walk-through for its game the next night against Warren East. There will be beverages and doughnuts for those in attendance.

Saturday morning quarterback

I missed Friday night's high school football games, and it looks like I missed out on two impressive performances by both Collins and Shelby County.

More on the Trinity-Collins soccer match

I know I posted the final score of sixth-ranked Collins' 1-0 soccer victory over No. 2 Trinity last night, but here's a little more.

Near the end of a fairly even first half Collins senior Walker Andriot got through two Trinity defenders and beat the Shamrocks' goalie to the upper right corner of the net for the lone goal of the match.

The Titans had a chance to add to their lead with about 14:48 to play, but Ryan Metcalf missed at a wide open goal after Trinity's goalie knocked down Andriot's free kick.
