Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Anthony Bennett talks recruiting

Anthony Bennett is narrowing down his college selections.  The front runners are likely the Kentucky Wildcats and Florida Gators.  Speaking t0 Sean Brown at SLAM Online following the Jordan Brand Classic:

Since this was my last high school game I know there be a lot more questions about my college decision. For right now all my schools are the same as far as picking one. Like I said in my first diary the most important thing to me is my relationship with the coaching staff and how I get along with the players already on the squad. When I make the decision I know it will be a great fit for my game and me.

Bennett did meet with Florida, UNLV and Oregon.  It looks like the high school will make his official decision in early May.  For Kentucky Wildcat fans, that decision cannot come soon enough.

Meanwhile, national player of the year Anthony Davis was in Charlotte, North Carolina, this past weekend to attend the Jordan Brand Classic.  Now, I’m not sure what to make of this exactly other than the fact that Davis has yet to make a decision whether or not to declare for the NBA Draft.  It should be noted that not a single member of this year’s Wildcat squad have announced their intentions.  The two obvious players that are gone are Darius Miller and Eloy Vargas.  Davis spoke with the Charlotte Observer last night, telling sports columnist Scott Fowler:

“Whoever drafts me, I’ll love playing for them,” Davis said Saturday night in a brief interview with myself and one other reporter — although Davis emphasized strongly that he has not made a decision as to whether to leave college early for the NBA.

The BatCats lead off coverage of Baseball America’s roundup for games that took place yesterday.  This year is one of the best years I can ever recall for Kentucky Baseball.

I’ve been keeping my eye on the Kentuck-Georgia softball game.  Through the end of 3 innings, Georgia held a 2-0 lead.
