  • FROM THE WORD: Caring for poor is required

    I know this is not going to be the most popular article I have written. During the holiday season as I looked at my table and saw so much I thought of all the people who did not have what I had.

  • UK break-through may have come, but didn’t happen in Knoxville

    University of Kentucky fans may have witnessed a break-through moment last week. Says here, didn’t happen in Knoxville.

    Scene: Second half against Georgia. UK had a large second half lead when Jodie Meeks broke free on a three-on-two fast break. In front of family and friends, the native Georgian fresh off 54 five days ago was clear for a pull-up jump or drive to the hoop.

    Instead, Meeks slipped a bounce pass through traffic across the lane to a teammate coming from the left. Result: Michael Porter lay-up and one.

    Team play moment.
