Freshman pitcher Sam Mahar worked a career-high six shutout, 2-hit innings in his first career start to help the #3Kentuckybaseball team defeatCincinnati, 7-0 tonight. The Cats got home-runs from Luke Maile, Austin Cousino, and J.T. Riddle to supply the offense. With their 33rd win, they’re now tied for the 7th-most wins in UK single-season history, and with 18 regular season games left to play, the record to break is 44.
They’ll welcome #4 LSU for 3-game set starting Friday night.
And as far as the UK guys rank in Chad Ford’s top 100 NBA prospects:
1. Anthony Davis
2. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
8. Terrence Jones
24. Marquis Teague
29. Doron Lamb
42. Darius Miller
It will take an amazing draft combine showing and workouts from Darius Miller and Doron Lamb, but there still is a chance this class of Cats can break the 2010 NBA Draft record of 5 first-round draft picks.
