The good news this morning is that Kentucky safety Ashely Lowery is doing better. He’s still in intensive care, but he was responsive and correctly answered doctor’s questions.
Tweet of the Morning:
You go, Coach Scott!
WBN makes a persuasive argument that Kentucky’s recent offering of several high school quarterbacks is not an indication that they fear losing Drew Barker.
"Things are looking pretty good" for Ashely Lowery. That’s just fantastic, that was an unbelievable wreck. He’s extremely lucky to be alive. I hope his injuries are something he can recover fully from.
More from Larry Vaught.
Mark Stoops & Co. completely turned things around with Drew Barker. I can’t figure out what Phillips and his staff were thinking.
What we’ve all been saying and hearing for a long while: Nobody knows who Andrew Wiggins will pick.

As Wild Weasel noted yesterday, Kentucky softball pulled off a huge series win against the #7 ranked and defending national champs, Alabama.
The Wildcats will face South Carolina in the SEC tournament, having earned the #7 seed.
You know the shiny new SEC Network that just got announced? Keep in mind who will be paying for all that.

Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star thinks KU will not be affected by Ben McLemore’s alleged problems. He thinks that the NCAA is in a "weakened state" due to their ethics problems with the Miami matter.
This sounds like wishful thinking to me. Kansas may very well not be affected, but the NCAA is going to wonder why nobody at Kansas thought to ask who Blackstock was when McLemore left him those game tickets. That’s a question KU is going to have to answer, and that answer seems problematic to me.
