Title: SEC Basketball All-Time Teams during the Arkansas Era
Post by: jbcarol on April 09, 2010, 07:41:46 am
Across Time Teams since SEC Expansion ('91-92)

Alternate Divisions

Start in the East with Kentucky:

PG John Wall (Word of God, Fr): National POY runner up, Consensus All-American, Set Kentucky single season assist record from the Sutton Error, broke Kentucky freshman scoring record previously held by Demarcus Cousins.

Hon. Mention: Brandon Knight was Coach's 1st Team and Freshman All-American; Rajon Rondo, lead guard for Celtics; Travis Ford, Oklahoma State coach; Wayne Turner, ex-Harlem Globetrotter, Duke nemesis. Anthony Epps and Marquis Teague were point guards on national championship teams but not the marquee players.

Dishonorable Mention: Saul Smith, Minnesota asst. coach. UK fans gave him a hard time as they remembered a time when they were benched for the coach's son.

SG Tony Delk, Three-Time Scoring Leader, Championship Game MOP and Three Points Made record. Delk was a tough on defense as he was behind the arc.

Hon. Mention: Keith Bogans, twisted ankle short of final four; Derek Anderson, ACL short of championship; Jodie Meeks, single-game scoring leader, SEC scoring leader, head coach short of doing something significant; Jeff Sheppard, led National Championship team in scoring. Redshirted in 1997 to play on '98 championship team.

Dishonorable Mention: Desmond Allison. When Tubby Smith went "Father Flanigan" he never got it back.  Even a 26-0 run was not enough.  Allison was killed in 2012; Rae Carruth (see Allison, Desmond).

SF: Tayshaun Prince, All-American, SEC POY, underrated for defense, played during tough stretch for UK basketball and Tubby Smith.

Hon. Mention: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, NBA 2nd Pick had a great motor and was a lockdown defender; Ron Mercer, All-American; Kelenna Azubuike, father's legal troubles prevented a senior season; Coach Pelphrey is Kentucky's 8th leading scorer in the last 20 years and was a pivotal leader on their Unforgettable team.

Dishonorable Mention: Rod Rhodes, his meltdown v. Hogs in SEC Championship had Pitino put him on waivers (also to free a spot for Mercer).  When he got no takers, he was shipped to USC;
Darnell Dodson/Ramon Harris, can you imagine Rotnei Clarke getting the open looks these guys got this year?

PF: Jamal Mashburn, he fouled out twice in his career in OT: Duke '92, Michigan '93. Kentucky lost both games.

Hon. Mention: Terrence Jones was SEC Freshman/Newcomer of the Year in '11. AP and Coaches SEC 1st Team; Patrick Patterson, All-SEC got his degree in three years; Chuck Hayes, he just wins, baby; Antoine Walker; Scott Padgett, came back from his lawn care business to bury Duke and Kansas.

Dishonorable Mention: Jason Parker (who was a cancer), Sheray Thomas (who had cancer).

C Anthony Davis was UK's first consensus player of the year. He was the first pick in the 2012 draft joining John Wall as UK's only NBA 1st picks ever (Sam Bowie and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were 2nd overall picks). Davis set single-season shot blocks records.

Hon. Mention: Demarcus Cousins: broke Rex Chapman's single season freshman scoring record, AP first team All-American, and funny guy in Elmer Fudd hat and Peter Parker glasses; Nazr Mohammed, a project that worked out; Jamal Magloire [Billy Packer: that Wojo's tough, son of a longshoreman, that's tough Jim. <in high and whiny squeal> what's Magloire doing?!?]; Marquis Estill, voluntary one-year walk-on on team that ran SEC on 26-0 run. Josh Harrelson was a surprise contributor to a team who lost six SEC road games but went to Final Four with a win over #1 overall seed Ohio State.

Dishonorable Mention: Randolph Morris, there's no I in TEAM. Good thing Tubby found that fax.  Pete Thamel found a receipt in Turkey that ensured Enes Kanter's biggest contribution was to raise Josh Harrelson's game in practice. Thamel couldn't find anything on T'eo.

Back to the West ('91-92 present)

State

All-Time Frontcourt

Erick Dampier, MVP of State's best team ever.  So good the ABA's all-time leading scorer had the public pronounciation of his name changed to match Erick's.

Jarvis Varnado, only NCAA player to have 1000/1000/500 (pts/rebs/blks).  Most appearances on all-league defensive team.  All-time blocks leader.

Lawrence Roberts, got immediate playing time after the Baylor scandal and was SEC POY.

All-Time Point Guard

Derrick Zimmerman, underrated leader of some excellent State teams in the first half of the aughts.

All-Time SG

Timmy Bowers, Zimmerman's running mate was a clutch shooter, great defender, and All-American.

Sixth Man Honoree

Dontae' Jones had one of the best runs evah during the '96 postseason helping State make the Final Four.

Frontcourt Honorable Mention

Moultrie, State's last NBA 1st round picks were Dampier and Jones in '96.

Mario Austin, multiple time All-SEC big man who could shoot

Charles Rhodes, recent All-SEC player

Horatio Webster, another multi-year All-SEC big

Tyrone Washington, solid big man during a tough stretch

Robert Jackson, tough big guy post-Dampier

Dishonorable Mention

Fill-in-blank players who committed inhibiting recruiting and then went straight to NBA

Sidney, who would have helped Stansbury if he had tried to go straight to the NBA


Honorable Mention Point Guards

Chuck Evans, All-SEC PG at time of expansion when the SEC was loaded.

D Bost, 2012 Coaches All-SEC 1st Team '11 2nd Team was concerned about exposure in Starkville.

Dishonorable Mention

Gary Ervin, All-SEC Freshman takes his act to Arkansas


Wing

Jamont Gordon, multi-time All-SEC

Tony Watts, the asst principal at Connor (following Joe Dan Gold career path) is already an SEC Legend. Watts led State to a regular season co-conference championship.

Barry, good career just wrapped.

Shane Power, just gets in, but was a tough player during the Roberts/Bowers/Zimmerman era.

Dishonorable Mention:

Ben Hansbrough, the sane one in the family was All-SEC Freshman before leaving State.

Delks, had cause to split?  Reginald is called out by Calipari with a Pel-like, "you're messing with the wrong guy [Bledsoe].  He'll [see you] after the game."  And Uncle Tony, "See ya at the family picnic."

It never dawned on me until I read this, but since Arkansas joined the SEC in the 1991-92 season, Vanderbilt has had four SEC Players of the Year and LSU has had five.

Nine SEC POY awards with nary a National Championship and only one Final Four to show for it.

Back to the East with Tennessee

Across Years Team (’91-92 to present)

SG, Chris Lofton, SEC POY, All-American, ’06-08 3-Time All-SEC 1st Team. Great shooter and a clutch shooter.  “When you have Rondo, Joe Crawford, Bradley, and Adam Williams in hand, there’s no room left for a Chris Lofton,” said Tubby Smith.

SF, Allan Houston, All-American, 4 Time 1st Team All-SEC, One case where the son got the coach a job ala Pistol Pete.  In this case former Louisville assistant Wade Houston became the first black coach of a major men’s sport in the SEC and the first black to get a membership at a premium Knoxville CC.

PF, Ron Slay, All-American, ’03 All-SEC 1st Team, ’01 All-SEC 2nd Team. Slay was a big talker, a great interview, and a good outside shooter.

C Steve Hamer, ’95-96 2-Time 2nd Team All-SEC, UT’s first 7-footer since Kevin Nash, averaged 18+ ppg.

SG Wesley Person, AP Honorable Mention All-American and another great person at Auburn. ’94 All-SEC 1st Team,’93 All-SEC Coach’s 1st Team, ’92 All-SEC 3rd Team.  Auburn’s all-time leading 3-point shooter and 3rd leading scorer of all time.

G Wes Flanigan, ’96 All-SEC 3rd Team, Parkview grad is second all-time at Auburn in assists and battled thru cancer to play his senior season. Wes is one of the great leaders in Auburn history and is an assistant at UAB. Flanigan received the Basketball Writers Most Courageous Award.

Honorable Mention Front Court

SF Bryant Smith, ’99 All-SEC 1st Team, ’98 All-SEC Coach’s 2nd Team, good defender and rebounder.  Bryant held his opponent to 5-6 ppg below scoring average in ’98-99. Auburn is often over looked on the All-SEC teams but ’99 was a very good year for the Tiger.

C Kyle Davis. The underrated 6’10” Davis was a rough-edged precursor to State’s Varnado but he was a shot blocking machine with 360.

BMarcello poses the question: Is D Bost the best State PG evah? (http://blogs.clarionledger.com/msu/2011/03/01/is-bost-one-of-the-best-ever-at-msu/)

D Bost was working out in Vegas on someone's dime and laughing it up on Draft declaration deadline day. Then he won on appeal and got a chance to play the SEC schedule this season.

Quote
[D Bost, a junior] has proven to be one of the best point guards in the Southeastern Conference in his short time back from suspension (14 games). He leads the league in assists in conference games (6 per game) and is just 86 short of breaking the career school record in that category set by Derrick Zimmerman (514).
 
“He’s one of the best, for sure,” Stansbury said. “He’s a scoring point guard and it’s very obvious he can distribute, too, or he wouldn’t be having the stats he has. I think the great ability he has, too, is he’s a competitor; I think he’s gotten better and he’s matured as a basketball player. … These are all SEC stats. These are not watered-down stats against everybody else you’ve played in the non-conference (schedule). … For him to still be in position to break that assists record and do it in half a year less than anybody else, then it’s quite an accomplishment.”

It never dawned on me until I read this, but since Arkansas joined the SEC in the 1991-92 season, Vanderbilt has had four SEC Players of the Year and LSU has had five.

Nine SEC POY awards with nary a National Championship and only one Final Four to show for it.

Vandy may get their fifth this year.

For Mississippi State:

He played one season but you have to look at Moultrie finding a spot on State's all-time team.  The weight you put on one season makes the all-time team discussions interesting, especially for Kentucky lately.

Sidney would make Dishonorable Mention.

D Bost moves into the discussion as all-time PG but I am not certain he would pass Zimmerman.

That's the first thought I had as well.  Looking at UF- it is all Donovan era but one meaning they have a weak history but finally have a great coach

LSU is exact opposite- they have always had great talent/players, but never a great coach which is why their BB tradition is next to nothing

Here are eight schools who have made underachieving a trend in March despite touting rosters stocked with NBA-caliber talent:

Alabama: Football might be the most-popular sport in Tuscaloosa, Ala., but Alabama has a history of producing some of basketball’s best pros. Latrell Sprewell, Antonio McDyess, Robert Horry, Mo Williams, Gerald Wallace, Alonzo Gee … you’ve got to admit, that’s a pretty impressive list. Unfortunately, it never led to much for the Crimson Tide, which owns just one SEC regular-season championship (2002) in the past 26 seasons. Even worse is that Alabama has advanced beyond the Sweet 16 just once in school history. That occurred in 2004, and Bama has made just three NCAA tournament appearances since. (http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/85399/ten-underachievers-based-on-talent)

As part of ESPN's look at the 20 schools that have produced the best pros in the modern draft era (since 1989), they listed biggest underachievers and Bama took top spot.

Mark Gottfried's team made the Elite Eight in 2004, Bama's best finish in school history.

Georgetown Hoyas was number two while Tejas made the Top Five.

In the weeks leading up to the June 27 NBA draft, ESPN is taking a look at the 20 schools that have produced the best pros in the modern draft era (since 1989, when the draft went from seven to two rounds).

No. 11 Florida (http://)

Quote
Top Five NBA Draftees Since 1989
Joakim Noah (2007)
David Lee (2005)
Mike Miller (2000)
Al Horford (2007)
Jason Williams (1998)
Sixth man: Udonis Haslem

The rest: Chandler Parsons, Matt Bonner, Corey Brewer, Bradley Beal, Marreese Speights, Dwayne Schintzius, Andrew DeClercq, Donnell Harvey, Orien Greene, Anthony Roberson, Matt Walsh, James White, Chris Richard, Taurean Green, Vernon Macklin

Why they're ranked where they are: Seventeen years ago, the University of Florida took a chance.

It was time. Florida basketball -- a program that from 1933 to 1980 finished higher than fourth in the SEC exactly twice -- had finally experienced some success under Lon Kruger, who in 1994 led the Gators to their first-ever Final Four. In 1996, Kruger left Gainesville to take over at Illinois and Florida was left at a crossroads. It could slowly tilt toward respectability with a proven coaching entity, or it could seize the opportunity to do something bold. The Gators walked through door No. 2, hiring a 31-year-old former Providence star and Rick Pitino protégé with five years as an assistant and two as a head coach on his résumé. The rest, as they say, is history.

Before Billy Donovan arrived at Florida in 1996, the Gators had just four NCAA tournament appearances in school history. The first came in 1987, when Vernon Maxwell (who left Florida as the second-leading scorer in SEC history behind only Pete Maravich) pushed through to the Sweet 16. Since Donovan's arrival at Florida, the Gators have gone to the tournament 13 times, advanced to the Elite Eight in six seasons (including each of the last three) and won two national titles, in 2006 and 2007. Seventeen years after the Gators took a chance on the hotshot 31-year-old with the Pitino pedigree, Florida is now something close to a basketball power.

Christian Dreijer, seen as a can't miss, did not make the cut and neither did the Greek lead guard who left after this freshmen year and after not being drafted found austerity playing pro ball in Greece.

In the weeks leading up the first practice, I will redo all-expansion era SEC Teams with a viable starting five and 13-man roster. Please make your own modifications. This can include any SEC player who played from '91-92 to present.

To normalize the effect of eras, I will rely on All-SEC consideration, NBA draft selection, and contribution to championships and/or record post-season accomplishment for the school. This will help with the perception that with different off-season routines and their influence on fundamentals, NBA draft rules and practices, nutrition and conditioning, and some interpretation of and changes to rules, the 90s players are much better than today.

Old school SEC beat writer caves; votes freshman who has never played a game as SEC preseason POY

Even the most ballyhooed and ultimately transcendent freshman used to have to prove himself before receiving the tribute that goes with being a college star. How quaint.  The Southeastern Conference unwittingly drove home that point last week by asking media members to vote on a pre-season all-league team.

To not vote for Julius Randle last week seemed more the act of a contrarian than a nod to sober judgment.

Jimmy Dykes, ESPN's color commentator for SEC games, voted for Randle."When we look back on January, February and March, he'll be the most dominant player in that league," Dykes said. "And he'll be the guy that coaches — I don't know if 'fear' is the right word — fear-slash-respect the most."

Dykes acknowledged that his vote for Randle reflected the changing nature of how he — and we — view college basketball.

"The last four or five years I had to get more comfortable with it," Dykes said of anointing a player who has yet to take a college dribble as SEC Player of the Year. "At the end of this mathematical problem is a question: Who is the best player in this league? The best player in this league, I think going in, is Julius Randle."

Different spin on the subject.  All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA. 

Kentucky

Dan Issel, C/PF, 27,482 points and 11,133 rebounds in 15 ABA/NBA seasons and Hall of Famer. He was nearly 80% on FT across his pro career. Issel in three seasons, is also the leading all-time career scorer and rebounder at UK. His UK teams never made the Final Four. In his senior season his number one team was upset in the regional finals by Jacksonville led by his future ABA teammate Artis Gilmore ending the possibility of a game against reigning champs UCLA.

Antoine Walker, PF, 15,647 points in 12 seasons. Walker earned the most NBA money of any UK player ever in 2014 dollars.  He lost it all.  Walker was the second-leader scorer and leading rebounder on UK's 1996 NCAA championship team and he left after his sophomore season.

Louie Dampier, SG, 15,279 points in 12 seasons. Dampier is the all-time leader in scorer and assists in the ABA. He was just short of 200 three-pointers in consecutive seasons and once set the NBA or ABA record with 57 consecutive free throws. Dampier won an ABA championship with teammate Dan Issel for the Kentucky Colonels. Dampier was a college teammate of NBA Exec Pat Riley and College Basketball Analyst, Larry Conley. The Kentucky team his Junior season lost to Texas Western in the NCAA finals.

Cliff Hagan, SF, 14,870 points in 14 seasons. Hagan was inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. Hagan averaged 25 ppg for the St. Louis Hawks in '59-60 and made a comeback playing for the Dallas Chaparrals in the ABA. Hagan's team won the NCAA championship as a sophomore. UK received the death penalty due to a point shaving scandal by the late-40s, early-50s players. Hagan essentially redshirted a season but kept up his studies. UK was undefeated the next season. Hagan and teammates Frank Ramsey and Lou T. had graduated and were not allowed to play in the NCAA Tournament. The rule was so obscure, a state newspaper published the fact on the eve of the tournament start. Rupp elected to not enter the tournament with some colorful language about the ability of the players he had remaining.

Hagan was UK's AD when they almost received the death penalty again during basketball scandals at the end of Eddie Sutton's tenure. CM Newton replaced Hagan as AD. UK's baseball stadium is named Hagan and the football field is named for Newton who hired Rick Pitino.

John Wall, PG. The one player whose career is projected, Wall averages 17.4 ppg and 8 apg.  Wall is selected over Rajon Rondo who played two seasons at UK and Kyle Macy who is scheduled to call the Arkansas-UGa game today and did not have a spectacular NBA career.

Wall was the overall NBA number one pick, the first ever for a UK player, after one season at UK. His team went 36-3 losing in the Regional Finals to West Virginia. Wall was UK's all-time leading scorer as a freshman until he was passed in the West Virginia game by Demarcus Cousins.


Honorable Mention: Jamal Mashburn, Hall of Famer and Celtic Sixth Man, Frank Ramsey, Tayshaun Prince, Rajon Rondo, Anthony Davis, and Demarcus Cousins.

Early 50's players Ralph Beard and Alex Groza, projected to be NBA stars, were banned for life for the point shaving scandals.  Groza had averaged 22.5 and 10.7 in two seasons while Beard averaged 16 ppt and 4.4 apg in his two seasons.

All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

LSU

Shaq, C 28,596 points and 13,099 rebounds in 19 seasons, Shaq outscored Issel and is by far the number one NBA salary earner by an SEC alum. He averaged almost 30 points and 14 rebounds for the 2000 Lakers. He ranks 6th all-time in points scored, 5th in field goals, 13th in rebounds, and 7th in blocks.

College Player of the Year and two-time SEC player of the year, Dale Brown met Shaq while his step father was stationed in Germany and Brown thought the young teen was a military man. He wrote him encouraging letters and Shaq landed at LSU where he played three seasons. His statue is in front of the practice facility.

Pistol Pete, SG 15,948 points in 10 seasons and one of the youngest ever inducted into the Hall of Fame. After toiling with the Hawks and Jazz, Maravich got to experience post-season play with the Celtics. He averaged over 24 ppg over his career and once put up 68 against the Knicks.

LSU's arena is named for Maravich who is the all-time leading scorer in NCAA history totaling 3,667 points (over 44 ppt) in three seasons. Dale Brown later calculated that if the 3-point line had been in place, Pete would have averaged 57 ppg. Brown replaced Pete's father Press Maravich as head coach. Youtube videos now available show LSU opponents sometimes frozen in place watching Maravich do his stuff.

Pete Maravich died at 40 of heart failure after a break in a pick up basketball game with Jim Dobson and a ringer Dobson had brought in from UCLA. Pistol's last words were, "I feel great," when asked how he was. The Pistol had been born without a left coronary artery, a vessel which supplies blood to the muscle fibers of the heart.

Bob Pettit, PF/C, Hall of Famer and the NBA's first ever MVP. Scored 20,880 and had 12,849 boards. His career 26.4 ppg is most by an LSU alum. Petit won the NBA All-Star Game MVP four times, matched to-date only by Kobe. Petit's 29.2 ppg in '59 was the most ever in the NBA at the time. In '58 Petit and Cliff Hagan led the Hawks to the NBA championship. He is the only player besides Groza (only two seasons, banned for life) to average over 20 ppg in every season he played.

Petit averaged 27.8 ppg in his career at LSU and was a two-time All-American. He led LSU to their second SEC title ever and first in nearly 20 years. Bob Pettit Boulevard in Baton Rouge, LA is named for him.

Chris Jackson, PG, averaged 14.6 ppg and 3.5 apg in 11 seasons as Mahmoud Addul-Rauf. He reached the playoffs a couple of seasons for Denver and averaged 19.2 ppg in two different seasons for the Nuggets. He hit 95.6% FTs in a season, third best ever in the NBA. In '96 Jackson once refused to stand for the National Anthem.

In the period just before Arkansas joined the SEC, Jackson was a two-time SEC POY and was named to LSU's All-Century team with the likes of Maravich, Shaq, and Petit. He averaged 30.2 ppt, setting the NCAA freshman scoring record and became the 2nd freshman to be named to the AP All-American team. He left after his sophomore season.

Marcus Thornton, SG 13.6 ppg in 4+ seasons and currently active. Thornton averaged over 21 ppg for Sacamento in '11.

Thornton was SEC POY for LSU in '09 as a senior after playing two seasons for Kilgore (Rangerettes). He was two-time Coaches First Team All-SEC in his two seasons. LSU was 13-3 SEC champs in 2009 and made the NCAA second round.


Honorable Mention:  Frankie Bryan, a '50's G averaged over 12 ppg in 7 seasons, John Williams, Big Baby, Brandon Bass, Kenny Higgs, Stromile Swift, and Tyrus Thomas.

All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

Tennessee

Bernard King, SF. The Hall of Famer scored 19,655 points in 14 seasons, averaging 22.5 ppg for his NBA career.  King became the first NBA player in 20 years to score 50 points in consecutive games.  The TNT studio analysts once named King to their "Next 10", the ten players in their mind, who had just missed the NBA's 50 Greatest Players announced in 1996.

King was an All-American in each of this three seasons at Tennessee and was three-time SEC POY. He is second all-time at UT in points and rebounds. He left for the NBA after his junior season. King and Ernie Grunfield led UT to the 1977 SEC Championship (no SEC tournament at the time). King was the subject of a recent ESPN documentary.

Allan Houston, SG. 17.3 ppg in 12 NBA seasons. Allan was a two-time NBA all-star noted for hitting a game winner at the buzzer allowing the 8-seeded Knicks to win an NBA play-off series over a 1-seed.  Houston won an Olympic Gold Medal at Sydney. The "Allan Houston Rule", pertaining to collective bargaining is his namesake.  Houston has made the third most money of any former SEC player in the NBA behind Shaq and Joe Johnson (yet to come in this series).

Allan Houston's father Wade was head assistant to Denny Crum at Louisville. In high school, Houston's Ballard team won the State Championship in a shoot out with future Kentucky player Richie Farmer (recently imprisoned for ethics violations as a state official). Tennessee was able to recruit Allan by making Wade the first ever black head coach of a major sport in the SEC. Wade was also the first black member of an exclusive Knoxville Country Club. Allan was UT's all-time leading scorer with 2,801 points. Joined Ernie Grunfeld as UT's only four-time 1st Team All-SEC selections.

Dale Ellis, SF/SG. 19,004 NBA points, second only to King among UT alum. Ellis peaked in the mid-to-late 80's averaging 27.5 ppg for Seattle in 1989 when he was an NBA All-Star.

At Tennessee, Ellis was two-time SEC POY. He was named to the SEC Team of the 80s. The Vols made the NCAA-T in each of Ellis' four seasons. He scored over 2,000 points in his UT career.

Red Robbins, C/PF. Averaged 13 and 10.5 in 7 ABA seasons including a championship with the Utah Stars.  The former JuCo averaged 17 points and 12.6 boards his senior season.  That rated All-SEC and Helms All-American honors.

Ernie Grunfeld, SF/SG. Scored over 5,000 points in seven NBA seasons before becoming an NBA executive.  Grunfeld is one of three Vol players to have his jersey retired along with his teammate King and Allan.  Grunfeld was a two-time 1st Team All-American at UT. He was SEC POY in 1977.


Honorable Mention: Tobias Harris, CJ Watson, 50's PF Dick Mehen, and Tom Boerwinkle.

Auburn

Charles Barkley, PF. 23,757 points in 15 seasons averaging 22 and 11.7.  The Hall of Famer won two Olympic Gold Medals, was an 11-time NBA All-Star and the 1993 NBA MVP. Sir Charles was named to the NBA All-Time 50th Anniversary Team. His straightforward approach as an analyst is respected.

Barkley was SEC POY in 1984 and three-time All-SEC. He was named to Auburn's All-Century team. He was named SEC Player of the 1980's by a Birmingham paper.

Mike Mitchell, SF. Over 15,000 points and almost 20 ppg over 9 year NBA career. He is 7th leading scorer in Spurs franchise history and was an '81 NBA all-star.  Mitchell is now Auburn's second leading all-time scorer with 2,136 and is the all-time leading rebounder at just under 1,000.  His jersey was retired a year ago.

Chuck Person, F. Almost 14,000 points in 12 seasons. Charles Barkley's college teammate was the '87 NBA rookie of the year. He averaged 14.7 ppg for his career, he averaged over 21 ppg for the Pacers in 1989.  At Auburn, Chuck was a two-time All-American and 3-time All-SEC. He is Auburn's all-time leading scorer with 2,311 points.

Eddie Johnson, Averaged over 15 ppg in his 10 year career with just over 10,000 points. Johnson averaged over 1,000 points per season in his first 8 seasons with the Hawks.  Found guilty of sexual assault of an 8-year-old, Johnson is serving life without parole.

Wesley Person SG-SF, Chuck Person's younger brother, averaged over 11 ppg in 10 NBA seasons. He was NBA All-Rookie 2nd Team. He shot almost 42% from 3 for his NBA career.  Like his brother, Wesley was a 2,000 point scorer for Auburn.

All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

Ole Miss

Johnny Neumann SG, his 6,022 points in pro basketball exceeds the total of all other former Ole Miss players combined. Neumann was a poor man's Pistol Pete, averaging 40.1 ppg in his sophomore and only season at SEC, earning SEC POY. He was one of the first players to declare hardship and entered the NBA/ABA draft. Neumann averaged 18.6 and 19.3 ppg in his first two full seasons with Memphis in the ABA.  He played two seasons as a reserver in the NBA after the merger including 10-12 minutes per game with the Pacers.

In the late 2000s, Neumann coached overseas on a team that went bankrupt. He made a return to Memphis to get help for his daughter after getting assistance from a former Ole Miss teammate. Forty years after leaving Tad Smith arena for the last time, Neumann made a return to an Ole Miss game and was warmly received during a time out.

Elston Turner SF, scored almost 2,400 points in 8 seasons, the last seven as a reserve. A Knoxville native, Turner with teammates Sean Tuohy and Carlos Clark helped lead Ole Miss to their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 1981. His son, Elston, Jr. transferred to A&M and in 2013 became the third opposing player to ever score 40 in Rupp as the Aggies upset UK and later scored 37 against Ole Miss.

Gerald Glass SF, scored 1,553 points in 4 NBA seasons. A transfer from Delta State, Glass had over 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in just two seasons at Ole Miss.

Justin Reed SF, scored 472 points in 3 NBA seasons with his second season his most productive. Reed as a freshman helped Ole Miss make their only Sweet Sixteen appearance as a freshman. He made one of the All-SEC teams each of his four seasons in Oxford.

Ansu Sesay SF, scored 401 points in 4 NBA seasons with his third season his most productive. Sesay was the SEC's POY in 1998 the year Ole Miss was 4-seed in the NCAA-T and had beaten eventual national champ UK in Lexington. Sesay missed a FT that set up Bryce Drew's buzzer beater upset win for Valpo.


Honorable Mention: Carlos Clark, 6-11 C and Arkansas St. transfer Patrick Eddie, and John Stroud

Sean Tuohy is radio analyst for the Memphis Grizzlies but did not play in the NBA. His recollections of the ruthlessness of early 80s Ole Miss coach and Bobby Knight disciple Bob Weltlich are documented in the "Blind Side: Evolution of a Game" though Weltlich is not mentioned by name.  Weltlich's act did not play as well in Austin.

Back in 1978, CBS figured it would be entertaining TV if it could match NBA stars in a tournament featuring the schoolyard game of H-O-R-S-E.

George “Ice” Gervin, one of the greatest scorers in the history of the game, probably could have won the whole thing had he not run into the ultimate H-O-R-S-E player who possessed a bottomless bag of trick shots.

The late "Pistol" Pete Maravich, former LSU and Jazz star, was fondly remembered by Gervin and other Naismith Basketball Hall of Famers on Friday during a Hall of Fame announcement at the Hyatt. (http://www.nola.com/nbaallstar/index.ssf/2014/02/pistol_pete.html)

Quote
Hall of Famers Gervin, Calvin Murphy, Rick Barry and Dominique Wilkins all enjoyed dishing on Maravich’s greatness, and also his heart on and off the court.

"Pete Maravich got me ready for the NBA," Wilkins said. "The summer before I started with the Hawks, he came to Athens and worked me out. I was a big fan of his throughout his college days and in the pros. So when he called me and said, 'Let’s work out,' I said, 'Of course.' Hey, this was Pete Maravich calling me.

"He took me under his wing and he had an unbelievable wealth of basketball knowledge. He put me through ball-handling drills, shooting drills. He was way before his time. I don’t know if you'll see a ball-handler like him ever."

Maravich died after a pick up basketball game in 1988 due to a heart attack. He had been born with a missing left coronary artery.

Dale Ellis became the fourth Vols men’s basketball player to have his number retired in a ceremony before Saturday’s Tennessee-Vanderbilt game.

Ellis’ No. 14 joined the No. 20 of Allan Houston, the No. 53 of Bernard King and the No. 22 of Ernie Grunfeld.

Ellis was SEC Player of the Year in 1982 and 1983 and enjoyed a successful 17-year NBA career. His 2,065 career points rank sixth in UT history despite playing before the advent of the 3-point shot.

Tennessee players said Ellis gave some words of inspiration and an honest take on things when he spoke to the team after Friday’s practice. (http://www.tennessean.com/article/20140301/sports0602/303010129/2082)

All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

Mizzou

Larry Drew, PG scored over 8,000 points in 10 NBA seasons. Drew averaged over 20 ppg and 8 apg for the Kansas City Kings in his third season, '82-83. He is currently head coach of the Bucks. His son Larry II plays for the Sioux Falls Skyforce in the D League. The elder Drew managed The Magic Johnson Foundation upon ending his pro playing career.

At Mizzou, Drew scored 1,401 points in four seasons, averaging over 15 ppg as a junior.  He is the only Tiger to lead the team in assists three consecutive seasons.  He helped Mizzou win the Big 8 Tournament in '78 and the regular season title in '80. He was two-time team MVP and leadership award winner.

Anthony Peeler SG, scored over 8,000 points in 13 NBA seasons beginning in '92-93. Peeler shot over 48% from the NBA 3 in his next to last season. The McD's AA from KC was the Big 8 POY in '92 averaging over 23 ppg. He scored 1,970 points in his four-year Mizzou career. He helped MU win the conference regular season and Big 8 Tourney, making the NCAA-T three times.

Steve Stipanovich C, scored 5,323 points in 5 NBA seasons for a Mizzou alum high of 13.2 ppg and 7.8 rpg. He made the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1984 from the Pacers. Like Peeler, Stipo was Big 8 Newcomer of the Year and as a Senior was Big 8 POY. He totaled 1,836 points and 984 rebounds in four seasons. He averaged over 18 points and 8 boards as a senior.

Stipanovich accidentally discharged a firearm injuring his shoulder early during his sophomore season. He initially reported that a "masked intruder with cowboy boots and a flannel shirt" who hated basketball players broke into his residence and shot him. After basketball Stipanovich owns and operates a coal mine and is involved in a ministry to help women who are victims of abuse.

Keyon Dooling G, scored over 5,000 points in 13 NBA seasons ending last year, averaging seven ppg. At Mizzou, he averaged over 15 ppg his second and final season. From his MU bio: "... should really blossom in new coach Quin Snyder’s up-tempo, full-court style of play ... Has the ability to take over a game with his acrobatics and show-stopping play ..."

Jon Sunvold G, scored 3,886 points in 9 NBA seasons. Sunvold averaged 7.7 ppg for his career, twice averaging in double figures scoring for a season. A teammate of Stipanovich, Sunvold was 2nd Team All-American in 1983. He scored almost 1,600 points in his MU career, averaging over 17 ppg as a senior. Sunvold is the analyst on the Missouri Sports Network and does some work on national broadcasts.

Honorable Mention: 70s F John Brown, Linas Kleiza, Kareem Rush, Doug Smith, Med Park, Al Eberhard, and Demarre Carroll.

Note: Norm Stewart played five games for the '56-57 St. Louis Hawks.

Coach Stewart's assistant coach Kim Anderson played 21 games for the '78-79 Trailblazers.

Bailey Howell won two NBA Championships and is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The 12-year NBA veteran and former second overall pick in 1959 is also the only Mississippi State player to have his jersey number retired in the rafters where the Bulldogs play.

Now the street that passes Humphrey Coliseum will bear his name. Coliseum Drive will now be known as Bailey Howell Drive.  (http://insidemsusports.com/2014/05/01/howell-street-named-honor)

Quote
MSU president Mark Keenum: “I believe this honor is something the MSU family will deem most appropriate and long overdue.”

Howell was a three-time All-SEC selection for MSU from 1957-59 scoring 2,030 career points, which ranks second in school history. His 27.1 scoring average is still the benchmark for the program.

The 6-foot-7 forward went on score 17,770 points for the Detroit Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers before retiring in 1971.

The C Spire Bailey Howell Trophy is given to the top collegiate men’s basketball player in Mississippi in his honor. The 77-year old is a fixture at Bulldog basketball games and is the father-in-law of director of athletics Scott Stricklin.

There was a recent good discussion on the number of players each conference has sent to the NBA. As schools switch conference affiliations, this gets muddier (Carmelo has to count for the Big East, not the ACC, right? …)

Current All-NBA teams by SEC school requires SEC schools to have five players in the NBA.

Ben Ward took a cut at UK's current All-NBA team:

PG: John Wall, Rajon Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight

SG: Jodie Meeks

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Tayshaun Prince

PF: Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, Patrick Patterson

C*: DeMarcus Cousins, Nerlens Noel

*I didn’t put Enes Kanter on the team, because although he went to Kentucky, he never actually played (http://kentuckysportsradio.com/basketball-2/all-uk-nba-team)

All-Time Teams for each current SEC school based solely on what the players did in the NBA/ABA.

Florida

Vernon Maxwell, G, Scored 10,912 points in 12 year career, averaging 12.8 ppg. Maxwell left as Florida's all-time leading scorer (2,450). It was later learned he took money from an agent. His records were erased. Maxwell had later legal issues including charges of adduction.

Mike Miller, SF-SG, In his 13th season, Miller has 10,457 career points, averaging 12.0 ppg. One of the top ten former SEC salary earners in the NBA. In two seasons at UF, Miller was a Freshman All-American and Coaches All-SEC as a Soph.

Al Horford, C, 2-time NBA all-star and All-Rookie. Averaged 14.0 and 9.5 in his career which continues in its sixth season. Horford was on the two-time Florida National Championship teams. Second in UF history in blocked shots and 7th in rebounds. All-SEC his junior and final season.

In high school he was one of the "good ol' boys, never meaning no harm" with Randy Moss.

Honorable mention: Joakim Noah, Brad Beal, Udonis Haslem, Chandler Parsons, 7'0" Maravich-era C Neal Walk, Corey Brewer

Expect Noah and Brad Beal to move into the Gator all-time starting five:

Shams Charania @ShamsCharania
Jannero Pargo agreed to a fully guaranteed one-year, $1.5 million deal to re-sign with the Charlotte Hornets, league source tells RealGM.
11:03 AM - 18 Jul 2014

Quote
I’m guessing Pargo will receive the minimum salary, $1,448,490 – $533,247 of which would be paid by the NBA. He averaged career highs in points (20.2), assists (7.7) and steals (2.1) per 36 minutes with Charlotte last season in a career-low 242 minutes, the fit warrants him returning. He might have just figured out how to play well in Steve Clifford’s system.

Its true that 4 of the all time great college basketball players were from LSU. However, individual talent does not always translate to a successful program. For instance, Bama is probably the most decorated college football program ever but have only one Heisman winner and that was just a few years ago. On the other hand, both Florida and Auburn have 3. Both have great programs but pale in comparison to Bama. Its all about the sum of the parts being less than the whole or something of that nature.

People tend to forget that he was the number one player coming out of High School in 1979. This was a class that included Ralph Sampson, Isaiah Thomas and Dominique Wilkens. He was 7'1 with arms like fire hoses. He also could pass and had a nice outside shot. Unfortunately for him, he suffered injuries which cost him 2 seasons including his junior year. By the time he came back as a 5th year senior, Melvin Turpin had captured the starting center spot. He was moved to power foward where he promptly became a defensive stopper and rebounding machine. He made 3rd team All American despite averaging a little over 10 points a game.  He was drafted second in the NBA draft by Portland(ahead of Michael Jordan) and was having a nice rookie season(making the all rookie team). However he broke each leg in the next 2 seasons and was never the same.

Remaining in the roster pool are: Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, Chicago’s Derrick Rose, Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, New Orleans’ Anthony Davis, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Houston’s James Harden, Atlanta’s Kyle Korver, Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins, Dallas’ Chandler Parsons, Utah’s Gordon Hayward, Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan, Portland’s Damian Lillard, Denver’s Kenneth Faried, Detroit’s Andre Drummond and Brooklyn’s Mason Plumlee.

Washington Wizards teammates John Wall and Bradley Beal were recently cut from the United States men's national team.

USA Basketball Men'a National Team managing director Jerry Colangelo explained during a teleconference on Tuesday why the two players were cut: (http://www.allkyhoops.com/2014/08/jerry-colangelo-explains-why-team-usa.html)

Quote
You know, the fact is both players had a good week. Beal is a young player who has been involved with USA Basketball in the past, and I feel confident that he will be part of that future because he's an outstanding talent. This was strictly a numbers situation with him.

As relates to John Wall, you look at the guards who went forward in terms of our point guards, and he's truly a point with great size and really very good defensively, and that was a tough call as it relates to asking him not to go forward because of the people we felt were ahead of him in terms of talent and what they might bring to this particular team.

How three QBs from the same small-town high school team became big-time college coaches - in three different sports http://usat.ly/1rYnztX

Quote
Louisville, Mississippi sits at the crossroads to nowhere in particular, a good 40-minute drive in any direction before hitting a main highway. Even by Mississippi standards, it's a small, rural, out-of-the-way town, with nothing to indicate that it would eventually become a cradle of high-level college coaches.

But when Louisiana-Lafayette goes for an upset Saturday at No. 15 Ole Miss, it's a moment that could potentially be career-changing for head coach Mark Hudspeth while highlighting connections and coincidences that border on absurd.

Long before Hudspeth started his ascent from high schools to Division II football to becoming the highest-paid coach in the Sun Belt, he was merely a backup quarterback at Winston Academy, a school of roughly 350 total students from kindergarten through the 12th grade.

The upperclassman he was trying to beat out? That would be Andy Kennedy, who went on to play college basketball and is now entering his ninth season as head coach at Ole Miss.

And the younger quarterback was trying to mentor (sic)? That would be Matthew Mitchell, who found his niche coaching women's basketball and has taken Kentucky to the NCAA Tournament five straight years.

I’m sure Rondo is stubborn. I’m sure he’s difficult to coach.

How will he handle the Celtics owner saying so publicly?

There’s no telling how Rondo will react, though I think he’ll take this in stride. After all, he’s admitted he’s tough to coach.

But if Rondo actually wants out or considering requesting a trade, anything like this could put him over the edge.

Bruce Pearl: "Chris Lofton was the best bad-ball shooter in college basketball. He took a lot of bad shots, but he made a bunch of him."

From 2006; Bruce Almighty? In Mason County, maybe ... (http://www.aseaofblue.com/2006/9/20/205213/051)

Quote
Despite repeated whining from a segment of the UK fanbase who were (a) intent on bringing in Kentucky's best player and (b) apparently not paying attention to the two Kentucky Mr. Basketballs whiling away on the UK bench, Tubby opted not to offer a scholarship to Mason County's sharpshooting guard Chris Lofton. Lofton had led his team to the state title as a junior and was far and away the best prep senior in the state. So, with no hard feelings -- he has said anyway -- he went to hated rival Tennessee instead.

Like many Kentucky high school hoops heroes, he was not an overwhelming athlete. Hidden in that frame, however, was the heart of a lion, and all Lofton has done is set the freshman record for threepointers in a season, average 17+ points per contest, win an NCAA game on a last second shot and earn first-team All-SEC honors. For much of Mason County, who think of Lofton as a collective son, it was sweet vindication.

So when Pearl came calling a second time, this go-around to establish recruiting roots with the newest Mason County superstar, things got a little weird.

Despite being in the bluest of blue areas of the Bluegrass, Mason County got its orange on. It presented Pearl with a hero's welcome, and honored him as a Kentucky Colonel (NOTE: Not to hurt anyone's feelings, but I know several Kentucky Colonels ... one is an RV salesman, another a barber ... my point? Maybe those aren't that hard to come by ... ). This royal treatment has irked some UK diehards, who, for whatever reason, feel betrayed by the actions of the Lofton-ites.

The irony here is that what is getting some Big Blue fans so irate is the sense of betrayal and disloyalty they feel. This is the heart of Wildcat Country to them. And going Orange, as it were, is as bad as going Louisville Red.

But loyalty is all this is, as a favorite son has found his calling on the other side of an imaginary state line. However gaudy and overzealous the people of Mason County's actions are -- and they are a bit much -- calls for action and letter writing only further cement in people's minds that Kentucky fans are an overly sensitive bunch whose passion could be easily mistaken for self-righteousness.

Perhaps most interesting is that Lofton himself has more or less absolved himself of the whole thing. After returning to Rupp Arena, the location of his greatest prep triumphs, to stick a dagger in the heart of the Wildcats with a 31-point performance that sent the Cats even deeper into a tailspin, Lofton was serene, not strutting. As usual, it was the fans getting caught up in the process, not the kids themselves.

For the record, Tubby Smith has expressed regret that he didn't pursue Lofton harder...

Connection to Dale Brown makes College Basketball Hall of Fame induction sweeter for Shaq  http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2014/11/connection_to_former_lsu_coach.html …

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B3I5GImCcAAXrpC.jpg:large)

Quote
He was a reliable go-to scorer -- 21.6 points per game in 90 career games (27.6 as a sophomore). He was a tone-setting rebounder -- 1,217 in three seasons or 13.5 per game. And he was a defensive difference-maker with an SEC-record 412 blocked shots, each season setting a new conference single-season record.

Following two of his three seasons, O'Neal was the SEC Player of the Year and a first-team All-American and he hauled in four National Player of the year awards in 1991.

"You're talking about a young man who was one of the most dominant players who has ever played the college game," said current LSU coach Johnny Jones, who was an assistant during O'Neal's career.

Whether Brown saw that or not when he met O'Neal after a speaking engagement at a U.S. Army base in Wildflecken, West Germany didn't matter. What did is that in a bashful and gangly 13-year-old, he identified a kindred spirt and they immediately connected.

O'Neal was already 6-foot-9, but was more awkward than athletic at that point. He said he knew he wanted to play basketball, but lacked confidence that he could do so effectively.

So when O'Neal went and listened to Brown speak, he hung around afterward and sought what he thought would be a minute or two of time for advice.

Instead, Brown sat down with him for half an hour and permanently redirected both of their lives.

"This induction is going to be a double special moment for me because it was Coach Brown who took a little time with a shy little kid and he saw something in me I didn't see in myself," O'Neal said. "When my family came back to the states from Germany, he was still the same guy with me. He was like a father figure and he told me that if I came to LSU, he was going to do everything in his power to make sure I became a dominant college player..."

The last player to be UK basketball's version of Sisyphus, seemingly fated to forever play on a court tilted upward, was Rodrick Rhodes. He came to UK in 1992 as the nation's No. 2 prospect. Only a point guard named Jason Kidd was considered a better prospect.

As the latest star produced by famed St. Anthony's High in Jersey City, N.J., Rhodes had enough leverage to force then Coach Rick Pitino to publicly state he was staying in Lexington. Only then did Rhodes sign with UK. Three turbulent seasons later, he transferred to Southern California. (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/01/10/3634492/uk-basketball-notebook-rodrick.html)

Quote
When asked if he listened to voices other than Pitino's, Rhodes blurted out, "Oh my God. Too many. I should have only been listening to Rick Pitino."

A big difference between then and now are the many more voices competing for a player's attention.

"It's even tougher now for these kids because of social media," Rhodes said. "And it's all in your face. God forbid if we had had that when we were playing."

Now the coach at Cordia High School in Knott County, Rhodes tries to dampen the impact of social media.

"People are vicious," he said. "Basically, they can take free shots at you behind keyboards, and there's nothing you can do."

As Kentucky coach, Pitino liked to talk about the precious present. Live for today. Do not fret about tomorrow until tomorrow. Rhodes was not heeding that advice.

"I was thinking I had to do this, I had to do that," he said. "I had to score this amount of points. I had to score that amount of points. And I didn't concentrate on what coach was asking me to do."

Rhodes claimed no special insight into Harrison's mind. But he said the UK player need not worry about his NBA stock.

"Now, whether he's caught up in being a top-five pick, a second-round pick, unrestricted free agent. If he's caught up in all that stuff, then he's making a huge mistake."

Rhodes sounded particularly impressed by Calipari saying in October that Harrison cared too much about playing well.

"Pretty powerful stuff ... ," he said. "I can relate to that."

A review of Rhodes' three seasons for Kentucky might surprise. He was a 1,000-point scorer (1,209 points, to be exact). He made the coaches' All-Southeastern Conference third team as a sophomore, their second team as a junior.

"Coach Cal said it best: I care," he said. "I still love basketball. I love Kentucky basketball. People think I'm jaded about the University of Kentucky. I'm not."

Rhodes had powerful proof. A daughter, Roderia Rhodes, is a freshman studying marketing at UK.

"Like Andrew, I cared too much," he said. "And I wanted to do well. Sometimes, when you care too much, you press. And when you press, sometimes things don't always work out like you want them to.

I know it's not during the "Arkansas era", but if schools were able to field their all-time teams LSU would be hard to beat:

Shaquille O'Neal
Bob Pettit
Pete Maravich
Chris Jackson

Three of the all-time greats plus Jackson, who was as prolific a scorer as we've had in the last 30 years.

Add Al Bundy or Sonny Bono as the 5th man and that would still be an awesome starting lineup.

Saturday marked the 45th anniversary of late LSU guard Maravich passing Oscar Robertson as college basketball's all-time leading scorer in a Jan. 31, 1970 game vs. Ole Miss at the old John M. Parker Agriculture Center...

We could be cleaning out our closets and we'll find an old basketball. Suddenly on our hardwood living room floor, we're doing drills straight from the Pistol's original "Homework Basketball" film that was shot as a clinic with the late Joe Dean Sr.

Our wives asks us why we're throwing the ball violently on the ground between our legs and catching it off the hard bounce behind our backs.

"It's the Pistol's Ricochet drill," we explain. "It improves your hand reaction. If I throw it incorrectly, it's going to take a bad bounce that I'll have to trap between my knees. And if I don't trap it, please have an icebag ready."

For all of us who will always believe the Pistol is the greatest player we've ever seen, there wasn't a bigger night than when he became and remains the greatest scorer in college basketball history.

Nobody described the scene better than retired Times Picayune/States-Item columnist Peter Finney who wrote, "Sitting and standing, they were jammed into LSU's Cajun Cow Palace, all 11,000 of 'em, with a feeling of membership in an exclusive club, a feeling shared by folks who watched Roger Maris hit his 61st home run, Bobby Jones hole out for the 1930 Grand Slam and Roger Bannister break the four-minute barrier in the mile."

Bud Johnson, LSU's sports information director at the time, remembers having no empty seats on press row for the first time ever.

"We had a lot of national press there that we never had," said Johnson, who now oversees the Andonie Sports Museum on the LSU campus. "One of Pete's goals was to get to New York City to play in the NIT in Madison Square Garden, the mecca of basketball.

"So while Oscar Robertson's record was important to everyone that night, Pete wanted to make a good impression in the national press, particularly the East Coast writers, who had never seen him play. He felt it would get LSU to the NIT."

The 6-11 Alec Kessler was UGa's all-time leading scorer until his record was surpassed by Litterial Green. He was 12th overall pick in the 1990 NBA draft. Kessler became an orthopedic surgeon in the Pensacola area.  He died of a heart attack during a pick up game at age 40.

Kentucky's all-time team versus Arkansas

Tony Delk scored 116 points against Arkansas from '93-96.

Quote
Porkers Pack a Powerful Punch in Pummeling Cats:

It was yet another "close but no cigar" game for the Cats as they fell to the Arkansas Razorbacks at Bud Walton Arena 94-92 in a well played, close contest. Billy Packer made the stunning prediction that UK and Arkansas probably would be meeting in the NCAA title game early in the telecast.

Kentucky started the scoring with a Sheppard 3, but the lead changed hands several times until a McCarty 12 footer put the Cats up 11-10. They build a 16-11 lead on the strength of a Delk FT, a Riddick basket from a Delk assist, and a Sheppard steal in backcourt and dunk. Following the dunk, Jeff hung on the rim momentarily (as permitted by the rules), to avoid coming down on Dwight Stewart who was directly underneath but Jeff was assessed a technical foul anyway. Thurman hit the technical FTs, and Arkansas rallied to tie the game at 16-16.

The Tony Delk Show began as the Cats surged to 24-16 on a Delk steal and layup, a highly arching Delk 3 from the corner, and a very long Delk 3. ... The Hogs hung tough, however, and stayed in the game on a nice Robinson cut, a basket by Williamson and some Williamson FTs. They closed to within 33-31 when Anthony Epps missed a 3, but Delk resumed his hot shooting with another highly arching 3 and a later 3 (to put the Cats up 39-31 with about 5 minutes remaining in the half)...

UK was clearly playing for the last shot. Instead of passing off, Sheppard tried to go 1 on 3 and had his shot blocked with 0.8 seconds left. McDaniel was fouled by Sheppard on the rebound, and he hit 1 of 2 FTs to make the final margin 94-92 Arkansas.

7' Bill Spivey scored 22 in UK's 57-53 win in Robinson Auditorium in '50.

Quote
Game Writeup - by Orville Henry, Arkansas Gazette

    Arkansas Nosed Out by Ruppmen, 57-53

    Porkers Stay in Running Until Final Three Seconds

    An altered Arkansas offense turned the Razorbacks loose for pot shots at the wicket from anywhere and a startled team of Kentucky Wildcats had to hustle for points all the way in just shading the Porkers, 57 to 53, here last night.

    A sellout crowd of 2,500 - held to that by the Auditorium capacity - screamed down to the final three seconds. It wasn't until that point that Adolph Rupp's defending National champs were able to draw an easy breath.

    Tops on the scoreboard most of the game, the Razorbacks got life for the last two minutes when Bob Ambler, seemingly fired up after a listless 10 minutes of play at the start, wheeled under seven-foot Bill Spivey for a lay-up shot. That left Arkansas trailing by just 51-49.

    It was up for Spivey to all but cinch the victory. He pushed in a two-pointer from under the rim for a 53-49 edge. But Norman Price matched that one with a follow-up shot for Arkansas. Spivey also got a bat-in after a miss - the simplest sort of shot for him - and the Wildcats again paced by two buckets.

    There was hope for the Porks, though, as Gerald Hudspeth whipped in a swisher from the side. Kentucky went down the court with a minute left and two points in the lead.

    The stall lasted 50 seconds. Finally Spivey was left in the clear near the hoop. His easy shove shot rimmed, however, and there was a scramble for the ball. Dale Barnstable came up with it, came up shooting, and the try was good. Arkansas barely got the ball into the forecourt at the gun.

Jodie Meeks scored 45 points in UK's win in BWA from 2009. He had 15 in BWA in '07.

Quote
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Batman may have been without Robin but that didn't stop the superhero from riding to the rescue yet again.

Jodie Meeks put on another super-human performance, dropping 45 points to carry Kentucky past Arkansas 79-63 despite star forward Patrick Patterson sitting out with a sprained ankle. It was Meeks' third 45-plus point game of the season but may have been his most impressive given Patterson's absence.

Meeks set a Bud Walton Arena record for points, breaking the 39 former Hogs' sharpshooter Alex Dillard rang up in a 1993 game. It was the second time the Cats' junior guard redefined the scoring standard in an opposing Southeastern Conference gym this season, joining his school-record 54 points at Tennessee on Jan. 13.

Jack Givens scored 23 in UK's 64-59 win in the 1978 Final Four. He would add 41 v. Duke

(http://www.bigbluehistory.net/bb/Graphics/Programs/19780325Arkansas.jpg)

Keith Bogans scored 47 points in his two freshman games against Arkansas

Quote
Playing with a tenacious style reminiscent of their "40 minutes of hell" days, Arkansas stunned No. 16 Kentucky in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament. The Razorbacks converted 27 Wildcat turnovers into 33 points and scored almost at will against the Wildcats' vaunted defense en route to an 86-72 victory.

"Maybe it's time to get back to `40 minutes of hell,'" Richardson said. "Tonight seemed like a night to run the horses and they did a great job of running it. When you really get after folks and they turn it over, that's the difference in the game."

It marked Kentucky's first loss in the Georgia Dome in 14 appearances, Arkansas' first win over the Cats in the SEC Tourney and the third major upset of the day. In earlier action, No. 8 Tennessee and No. 11 Florida were eliminated by unranked South Carolina and slumping Auburn, respectively.

But the Kentucky loss may have been the biggest shocker.

The Cats made just six of 24 shots in the first half in falling behind 36-22. The deficit swelled to as much as 21 in the second half as Kentucky appeared helpless to counter Arkansas' quickness.

"I thought we just got beat by a team that showed a lot more quickness and a lot more aggressiveness," Kentucky coach Tubby Smith said. "We couldn't hit shots and dug ourselves such a hole. I don't know if we were ready. I guess we weren't because we played so poorly to start the game."

Arkansas took advantage, racing to a 10-3 lead in the opening three minutes on five second-chance points and five straight by freshman forward Joe Johnson.

The hot start for Johnson, the SEC's freshman of the year, would prove ominous. A non-factor with just 10 points on 4-for-11 shooting in the loss at Rupp Arena, Johnson burned the Cats for a team-high 21 on this night, including 3-pointers, baseline jumpers and drives to the basket.

The Razorbacks also came out hot from 3-point range, getting a pair of treys from Teddy Gipson, one from Blake Eddins and another from Johnson in extending their lead to 27-11 at the 10:19 mark.

Kentucky scored the final six points of the half, but still trailed by 14.

The Cats showed an initial spark to open the second period, cutting the lead to nine (46-37) on a three-point play by Tayshaun Prince, but watched as Arkansas responded with a 14-2 run to reclaim the momentum. Kentucky surrendered an open 3 to Eddins and fouled Brandon Dean on a long shot to help dig its hole deeper.

"We played into their hands," Smith said. "We didn't take care of the basketball."

Arkansas went 5:31 with just one basket, but the Cats were unable to take advantage. Chris Walker scored eight points and Johnson added six down the stretch to seal the improbable victory.

Johnson led five Razorbacks in double figures, including Gipson (16), Walker (12), Dean (12) and Eddins (10). Arkansas shot 46 percent (31 of 68) against a UK defense holding SEC opponents to under 40 percent for the season and, despite playing at such a frenzied pace, committed just six turnovers.

Freshman guard Keith Bogans scored a game-high 25 points to pace Kentucky.

"We looked very lethargic, very scared," Smith said. "That's something we've been doing extremely well, taking care of the basketball, so you wonder what happened."

Arkansas (17-14) advances to face LSU in Saturday's semifinals. The Razorbacks will likely need to win the tournament in order to make the NCAA's field of 64.

Brandon Knight had 26 points on 8-23 (1-8 from 3) in his only trip to BWA.

Arkansas won 77-76 in OT.

Today in sports history: LSU's 'Pistol' Pete Maravich torches Alabama for 69 points | http://ow.ly/IESha  [YouTube highlights and Pistol Pete mix available at link]

Quote
Forty-five years ago today, inside a jam-packed Memorial Coliseum in Tuscaloosa, Pete Maravich made college basketball history.

Maravich set an NCAA Division I record with 69 points in a 106-104 loss to Alabama on Feb. 7, 1970. The 6-foot-5 LSU senior known as "Pistol Pete" connected on 26 of 57 field-goal attempts that Saturday afternoon, and went 17 of 21 from the free-throw line.

LSU came into that game 12-5 on the season, while Alabama -- not yet the national power it would become in the mid-1970s under coach C.M. Newton -- was scuffling along at 5-12. The Crimson Tide led 44-40 at halftime, having held Maravich to 22 points -- about half of his average.

The fireworks began in the second half. Maravich poured in 47 points after the break, and was also at the center of a brawl that apparently began when he mistook a congratulatory gesture from a court-side photographer for a shove. The ensuing fracas led to several Alabama football players coming out of the stands to join in...

Louie Dampier, one of Kentucky’s best pure shooters in history, has finally made it to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
 
A seven-time All-Star Game performer in the old American Basketball Association, Dampier, along with the other new Hall of Famers, will be enshrined during the festivities in Springfield, Mass., on Sept. 11. (http://www.kyforward.com/jamie-vaught-kentucky-family-happy-to-see-little-louie-dampier-voted-into-hall-of-fame)

Quote
“Well, I might be a little bit prejudiced, (but) I think he should have been there a long time ago,” said ex-UK All-American Dan Issel this past weekend during an appearance in Lexington. “Louie is the all-time leading scorer in the history of the ABA and the all-time leading three-point scorer.
 
“And most importantly, he is a dear friend and I was more excited when I heard Louie made it in the Hall of Fame than I was when I went in (1993).”
 
Said another Hall of Famer and ex-UK standout Adrian “Odie” Smith, “It’s a great honor. I’m so happy for Louie, happy for his family, happy for the University of Kentucky. I know I went up in 2010 (as a member of the 1960 gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic basketball team). It was a great experience and he’ll have a great time. I’m very happy for him.”

Smith, a member of the UK’s 1958 national championship team, played in the NBA for 10 years, nearly all with the old Cincinnati Royals, and one year in the ABA. He was MVP of the 1966 NBA All-Star Game.
 

And Smith also played against Dampier and the Kentucky Colonels during the 1971-72 season when he was with the Virginia Squires.
 
“One thing he didn’t believe in the ABA was assists, and I know that’s true because he never passed it to me,” smiled Issel, who is UK men’s all-time leading scorer with 2,138 points. “So I know he didn’t pass it to that many people, but for Louie, for someone who has achieved as much as Louie did in the ABA, he is the most humble guy I’ve ever met and that’s why I love him.”
 
Dampier is one of a few players to play all nine years the ABA was in existence (1967-1976). He is one of two men to have played all nine seasons with one team, the Colonels. The Indiana native finished first all-time in the ABA in games played (728), minutes played (27,770), points scored (13,726) and assists (4,044).
 
He finished his pro playing career in 1979 after three years with NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.
 
Dampier, a former UK All-American who was a member of the 1966 Rupp’s Runts (along with teammate Pat Riley), also served as an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets when Issel was the squad’s head coach.
 
In UK history, Dampier is one of seven players who have scored 42 or more points in a single game. (Issel, Jodie Meeks, Melvin Turpin and Cliff Hagan each scored at least 42 points more than once.)
 
He had his best game as a Wildcat in 1966 when he pumped in what would be his career-high 42 points, leading second-ranked Kentucky to a 105-90 victory over No. 3 Vanderbilt in Nashville...

Delk was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 1996 Final Four on the way to UK’s national championship, earned first-team All-American honors as a senior, and led the Wildcats in scoring three straight years.

Clay: Tony Delk's journey to Rupp rafters began with sacrifice (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/02/21/3707208/john-clay-delks-journey-to-rupp.html)

Quote
Upon hearing the news, the first thing Tony Delk did was call his brother.

"I thought it would be the rightful thing to do," Tony said.

After all, had it not been for David Delk, Tony might not have come to play basketball at Kentucky in the first place. Had it not been for David Delk, Tony might not have stayed.

"He was the one who convinced me to come here," Tony Delk said Friday...

"I took a lot of pride (in my defense) because I had to," Delk said. "Coach Pitino was like, if you don't play defense you're not going to play. That registered fast..."

Jordan Mickey's vacation results in LSU's biggest win of the year @TigerDroppings@dandydonlsu  http://www.nola.com/lsu/index.ssf/2015/03/jordan_mickeys_excellent_vacat.html …

The finest game of Johnny Jones' LSU coaching career. Huge!

Quote
Johnny Jones made one of those decisions Saturday in the Tigers' regular-season finale at Arkansas. He sat injured starter Jordan Mickey, LSU's best overall player and the shot-blocking anchor of its defense.

Against all odds in the SEC's noisiest road arena, facing the No. 18-ranked team in the country that runs and presses more than any squad in the league, everyone wearing a purple uniform bought heart and soul into Jones' vision.

It was appropriate on the day LSU had such odds stacked against it, the Tiger with unquestionably the biggest heart helped Jones justify his faith in his team and confirm his decision to sit Mickey...

And since the committee looks at every factor when considering teams, including injuries and suspensions, not playing Mickey vs. the Razorbacks put LSU in a win-stupendous win situation...

Chuck Person explains why Auburn's run in 2015 SEC Tournament is more impressive than 1985 title http://ow.ly/Klf46

Quote
Auburn's assistant coach was a player when the Tigers won four games in four days to win the SEC Tournament title and secure a trip to the NCAA Tournament in 1985. Auburn, led by coach Sonny Smith, was the first team in SEC history to win four games in as many days.

Still, it's this Auburn team in 2015 that Person believes accomplished more considering the circumstances. Why? Victories against Mississippi State, Texas A&M and LSU in consecutive days pushed the Tigers (15-20) to the semifinals -- and all of it was accomplished after ending the regular season with six straight losses and only four conference wins in Bruce Pearl's first season as the head coach.

"It was a surreal feeling back when I was a player with coach Sonny Smith leading the way and going into Birmingham to win four games in four days to win the championship, but this even surpasses it with the way we finished the season -- not on a good note losing six games to finish the season," Person said Saturday after he and the Tigers were welcomed home by more than 150 fans. "But these guys showed great resolve. That's because of coach Pearl and his vision and philosophy of never quit and always staying together no matter what the adversity -- because it reveals character. It really showed."

http://blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/2015/04/06/louie-dampier-former-spur-elected-to-hall-of-fame

Louie Dampier, who played the final three seasons of his professional career with the Spurs, is among 11 members in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015.

He becomes the sixth Spur to enter the Hall of Fame, following George Gervin, David Robinson, Dennis Rodman, Moses Malone and Dominique Wilkins. A seventh, Cliff Hagan, played with the Dallas Chaparrals, the ABA franchise that would eventually become the Spurs.

Now 70, Dampier appeared in 232 games with the Spurs from 1976-79. His best season in San Antonio came in 1977-78, averaging 9.1 points and 3.5 assists per game as the Spurs won 52 games.

Dampier’s greatest success came in the ABA with the Kentucky Colonels, where he was a seven-time All-Star. Best known for his shooting prowess, he averaged a career-high 26 points per game with the Colonels in 1969-70.

He retired in 1979 with professional averages of 15.9 points and 4.9 assists per game in 960 games. Before that, Dampier helped the University of Kentucky...

Michael White becomes the first player that could be named to his school's (Ole Miss) Top 13 players since Arkansas joined the SEC and went on to coach at another SEC school.

Quote
A key figure in the recruiting arena, White has helped Ole Miss haul in some of the best signing classes in program history during his tenure. The incoming class in his first season back was ranked as high as third in college basketball by recruiting publications, while two recent classes have both been rated top 25 in the country.

Working with the Rebel backcourt, he helped Terrico White adjust to the starting point guard role en route to 2009 SEC Freshman of the Year and Freshman All-America accolades. He has also tutored All-SEC guards Clarence Sanders, Todd Abernethy, David Huertas, and most recently, Chris Warren.

A four-year starter at the point himself, Michael White helped captain the Rebels to national prominence in the late 1990s and returned to the program as an assistant coach on June 16, 2004. Playing for the Rebels from 1995-99, he entered the starting lineup in the eighth game of his freshman season and missed only one start at the point the remainder of his four years in Oxford.

Over that span, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound floor general helped guide Ole Miss to one of the most successful stints in the program's history, earning consecutive SEC Western Division titles, three straight NCAA Tournament berths and the Rebels' first ever Tournament win in 1999.

White led the squad in assists all four years and ranks sixth in school history with 370 career dimes. He was a two-time SEC Academic Honor Roll selection and a member of the 1999 SEC Good Works Team.

Not during Arkansas' time in the SEC necessarily, but if every school could put its all-time starting five in a time machine and make them 21 years old again LSU might be the best program in the country.

Shaquille O'Neal
Bob Pettit
Pete Maravich
Chris Jackson

I don't care if you plugged in jbcarol to play in the frontcourt with Shaq and Pettit, that would be an almost impossible lineup to beat.

Jerry Tipton: Who would be on UK basketball's Mount Rushmore? (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/07/18/3950413/uk-notebook-nba-summer-league.html)

Quote
1. Adolph Rupp. The Founding Father of UK basketball. No Rupp, no Big Blue Nation.

2. Cliff Hagan. Like Rupp, a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. A five-time NBA all-star, he later was UK's Director of Athletics.

3. Frank Ramsey. Like Rupp and Hagan, a Hall of Famer. He played on seven Boston Celtics teams that won NBA championships. The Celtics retired his No. 23 jersey.

4. Dan Issel. Like Rupp, Hagan and Ramsey, a Hall of Famer. The program's all-time leading scorer.

Wilbekin getting NBA opportunity with 76ers (http://www.gatorsports.com/article/20150718/ARTICLES/150719682)

Quote
Former Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin is moving closer to making an NBA roster.

Wilbekin agreed to a four-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, opting out of a deal in Australia to attend training camp with the team.

The deal is non-guaranteed...

Wilbekin, the 2014 SEC player of the year, helped lead the Gators to their fifth Final Four appearance in school history and a school-record 30 straight wins. The former standout from The Rock School in Gainesville played four years at UF and ranks seventh on UF’s all-time list in assists (419) and sixth in steals (167).

The Sports Illustrated profile of Rex Chapman is now online http://bit.ly/1IGU2xg 

Quote
Seth Davis’ profile of Rex Chapman for Sports Illustrated hit the newsstands, and now, it’s finally online. Davis profiles Chapman’s 15-year addiction to prescription pain killers and how that led him on a shoplifting spree which ended in his arrest in September.

Rex has since entered rehab and is opening up about his struggles...

Chapman admits that a lot of his problems began when people criticized him for dating an African American girl while he was at UK...

Eddie Sutton, the Wildcats’ coach then, says, “I don’t remember that happening. It was a long time ago, but I just don’t remember that.”

Quote
More than 70 former players from a half-century span returned to Memorial Gym for the event, and 21 took the court in the game.

Ryan French, from Manchester, was only 2 when Perdue was named SEC Player of the Year in 1988, but he stood in an autograph line to get a selfie with his grandfather’s favorite player.

“I was super super young when he was at Vanderbilt, but he’s a legend,” French said. “To this day, if basketball is being talked about, my granddad has a story about Will Perdue. So seeing him today was important to me.”

Billy McCaffrey, the 1993 SEC Co-Player of the Year, was a big draw at the autograph session...

“I wanted to come to the first one, but I just couldn’t make it. But when (Vanderbilt director of basketball operations) Dan Cage called me this time, I jumped at the chance,” McCaffrey said. “It feels really good to be back. They still love their hoops here.”

Rich Valavicius '78-80  transferring following his sophomore season at Indiana University ... was a captain both seasons for the Tigers ... averaged 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and an incredible 39 minutes per game while shooting 53.1 percent from the field as a junior in 1978-79 ... was a member of Indiana’s undefeated 1976 National Championship team (who is the only former SEC player to play on an undefeated national championship team?) ... only played 17 games in his senior season in 1979-80 as he missed the final 11 games after sustaining his second head injury in a four-week period ...

Named SEC coach of the year by the AP and his fellow coaches. The next season, Alabama entered the NCAA tournament as a fifth seed before suffering a first-round loss to UW–Milwaukee.

Louie Dampier's devastating road to Basketball Hall of Fame http://cjky.it/1XEcmeY  via @courierjournal

(http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/8eb3f4da7d900d9bcd6f4fd76c912e810b1891b7/c=0-0-533-711&r=537&c=0-0-534-712/local/-/media/2015/09/07/Indianapolis/B9318252231Z.1_20150907105352_000_GKIBQL71R.1-0.jpg)
Indy Star

Quote
The photo, half a century old, still tells a story of a teenage orphan, a basketball superstar, who by 18 had lost his mother and his father.

And it tells a story of why Dampier may be the only man to ever play the game of basketball who, deep down within his soul, secretly hoped he would never get into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame means being in the spotlight. And Dampier – who will be the first Indianapolis-born player enshrined Friday into a hallowed place every athlete dreams of – despises the spotlight.

Dampier is a self-proclaimed and well-known introvert.

"The happiest that Louie is is when he's out riding his lawnmower and doesn't have to talk to anybody," said Dan Issel, who played on the ABA's Kentucky Colonels with Dampier for five years and was his roommate when the team traveled...

****

It wasn't always that way.

Two years before the photo was taken, Dampier was an outgoing, 16-year-old, happy-go-lucky kid attending Southport High School. He was the hometown hero at a time when basketball stars at Indiana high schools were icons.

He loved socializing with friends, being a jokester.

Then one day, sitting in class – he doesn't remember whether it was math or English or history because everything in life suddenly became a blur – Dampier was called out.

His sister was there. She had unexpected and devastating news. His mother was dead.

"After my mom, of course, I was demoralized," Dampier said from his La Grange, Ky., home this week. "I can't explain exactly, the sadness and loss. I still can't explain it."

Dampier was one of the greatest to play in the ABA. He was one of only a handful of men to play all nine years of the league's existence. He spent his entire ABA career with the Colonels, finishing as the league's all-time leader in points (13,726), assists (4,044), games (728), 3-pointers (794) and minutes (27,770).

And now, Dampier is about to take the good – that Hall of Fame honor – with the bad. All that attention.

Some of the top Four - Six Year players in Bama basketball history

Reggie King '75-79  2x SEC Player of the Year... Bama’s all-time scoring leader, also was its second three-time national honoree, earning Freshman All-America plaudits in 1976 and second team All-America honors in 1978 and 1979. King averaged 10.9 points and 9.5 rebounds his first season on campus to help Alabama reach the Sweet 16. Two years later, he turned in the first of two second-team All-America seasons, averaging more than 20 points a game in both seasons including a school-record 747 points in 1979. King ended his career seventh all-time in scoring (2,168) and third in rebounding (1,279) in the SEC. Played on '78 Bama team that ended eventual national champ Kentucky's undefeated season bid.

Eddie Phillips '78-82  Phillips was a key component of head coach Wimp Sanderson’s 1982 team that won the SEC Tournament, advanced to the “Sweet 16” of the NCAA
Tournament and finished with a No. 13 ranking. Phillips’ steady production over his four years at Alabama vaulted him into second all-time in scoring (1,927) at Alabama and fifth in rebounding (1,129). In his two NCAA Tournament games in 1982, he averaged 16 points and five rebounds.

Leon Douglas '72-76   Only Alabama player to be named a consensus All-American with his second-team honor in 1975.

Despite standing at only 6-4, he remains one of the best rebounding guards in program history with 749 career rebounds and averaged more than five per game each season (6.8 rpg for career). In a 13-season NBA career, Dunn is one of seven Bama alum to play over 23,000 minutes.

He was selected to the All-Southeastern Conference, the SEC All-Defensive and the SEC All-Academic teams.  Horry holds seven NBA Championships that he won with three different teams in his 16 years in the league. Horry is only the second player in NBA history to win a championship with three different teams, including three with the Lakers (2000, 01, 02), two with the Rockets (1994, 95) and two with the Spurs (2005, 07). He participated in an NBA record 244 career playoff games and holds the record for most 3-point field goals in Finals history (40).

Jerry Harper '52-56  Bama’s first two-time All-American, earning the honor in 1955 and 1956. A member of the famed “Rocket 8” teams, he led Alabama to an undefeated SEC season in 1956 and a No. 5 ranking in the final AP poll, Alabama’s highest final ranking in school history. Harper remains the SEC’s all-time leader in rebounds (1,688), rebounds per game and is sixth all-time in scoring at Bama (1,861, 20 ppg).

George Linn '52-56   Joined teammate Jerry Harper as an All-American in 1956, the first and still only time that the Crimson Tide has featured two All-Americans on the same team. Linn averaged 22.2 points per game during his All-America season, the fifth-highest scoring average in program history. Another member of head coach Johnny Dee’s “Rocket 8” team, he led the Tide to its first postseason ranking at No. 12 in 1955 before improving to a program-best No. 5 during the 1956 season, when he helped the team compile a 21-3 record and win an SEC title.

Erwin Dudley '99-03  SEC Coaches Player of the Year, AP 3rd Team... Averaged a career-best 15.2 points per game with 8.9 rebounds in 2001-02. Dudley’s play that season helped the Tide amass 27 wins, the second-most in school history, to go along with an SEC championship and a No. 8 final ranking in the AP poll. Dudley’s 8.9 rebounds led the SEC that season and he also led the SEC in rebounding as a sophomore and senior. He finished his career at Alabama ranked seventh all-time in scoring and fourth in rebounding.

Brian Williams '96-99  Bama's ninth all-time leading scorer with 1,759 points. He was AP Hon. Mention All-American.

Ronald Steele '04-09  AP Hon. Mention... . Steele averaged 14.3 points per game with 132 assists and helped the Tide reach the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Steele was nearly automatic from the free-throw line, converting 89.2 percent of his attempts in 2005-06 and finishing his career shooting 86.7 percent from the stripe, the highest all-time mark in Alabama history. In 2006-07, knee injuries prevented Steele from becoming a multi-time All-American.

Ex-Cat Pat Riley explains how he became Hall of Fame presenter

Which of the three doesn't seem to fit: Calipari's mentor Larry Brown (Hall class of 2002), UMass's most famous player, Julius Erving (1993) or Pat Riley (2008)?

Even Riley thinks he will be perceived as the odd man out in the trio. (http://www.kentucky.com/welcome_page/?shf=/2015/09/09/4027763_ex-cat-riley-explains-how-he-became.html)

Quote
Riley offered a bit of Hall of Fame trivia: Calipari's last game as coach of the Nets was a loss to Riley's Heat.

Riley most likely helped steer Calipari to Kentucky in 2009 along with Mike Pratt.

Howland said everyone says Malike (sic) Newman is a top 20 player. If he's a top 20 player, he should go.

Gator great Neal Walk dies at 67 - via @Gator_sports http://www.gatorsports.com/article/20151005/ARTICLES/151009855 …

Quote

Neal Walk, Florida's first college basketball star and highest-drafted player in school history, died Sunday night at a Phoenix hospital at 67.

Walk had been battling a blood disease on and off for seven months, according to close friend and former teammate Kurt Feazel.

A skilled, 6-foot-10 center, Walk was the first All-American basketball player in UF history. He finished his Florida career from 1966-69 with 1,600 points, which still ranks eighth on the all-time school scoring list. Walk averaged 20.8 points and 15.3 rebounds in his three seasons.

“He was a skinny kid, and he worked hard to become the best player in school history,” said Feazel, who roomed with Walk at UF. “Off the court, he was like a brother to me. We were friends for 50 years and when we talked on the phone, he would call me brother.”

Walk was taken second overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 1969 NBA draft behind future Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

No Florida player has been taken as the first overall.

... || To former UK stars Anthony Davis, Cauley-Stein, return to Rupp for NBA exhibition feels like home: http://www.courier-journal.com/story/sports/college/kentucky/2015/10/17/nba-cats-relish-return-rupp-arena/74129610/ …

Quote
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Anthony Davis was only at the University of Kentucky for a year, hasn't lived here since the spring of 2012, but every time he's returned – for alumni games or, as was the case Saturday, an NBA exhibition at Rupp Arena – it's like he's coming home.

"It feels amazing, just brings back memories of when I played here," Davis said before his New Orleans Pelicans played the Sacramento Kings and former Wildcats stars DeMarcus Cousins, Willie Cauley-Stein and Rajon Rondo. "It's just amazing to realize the fan base that Kentucky has behind you. Whether you're in the league or you're playing here, they're still going to support you no matter what.

"Coach Cal don't hold that much weight around here anymore," Davis joked. "It just shows that I got much more power than Coach Cal."

Dean of SEC Beat Writers: One man, one vote

Southeastern Conference will announce its pre-season awards this week. Media vote for an all-league team, Player of the Year and predicted order of finish.

Here's my ballot:
 (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/10/17/4092643/uk-basketball-notebook-labissiere.html)

Quote
All-SEC team:

Guard — Tyler Ulis, Kentucky

Guard — Danuel House, Texas A&M

Forward — Ben Simmons, LSU

Forward — Skal Labissiere, Kentucky

Center — Damian Jones, Vanderbilt

Comment: The thought of all freshmen on the All-SEC team seems plausible. It appeals to the revolutionary in any voter. Say, Labissiere, Simmons, Jamal Murray (UK), Malik Newman (Mississippi State) and Antonio Blakeney (LSU). But how can you leave off the league's best point guard in Ulis, a physical/experienced talent in House and the steady/productive big man in Jones? Apologies to Ole Miss guard Stefan Moody (the league's most entertaining player), A&M glue-guy Alex Caruso, Vandy guard Riley LaChance, Florida forward Dorian Finney-Smith and Georgia guard tandem of Kenny Gaines and Charles Mann.

Player of the Year:

Tyler Ulis, Kentucky

Comment: As former UK star Sam Bowie once observed, a great big horse is better than a great little horse.

One observation from SEC-Media Day? It's ridiculous that UK's Jamal Murray wasn't on league's 1st, 2nd, or 3rd team. BUCKET GETTER. #BBN Observations @CBSSports: http://cbsprt.co/1OUKAXD  #BBN

Quote
Jamal Murray, a 6-foot-5 freshman guard, was a late addition for John Calipari's squad and he may turn out to be the Wildcats' most important player in 2015-16. While the college basketball world waits on word from the NCAA in regards to the eligibility of freshman big man Skal Labissiere for the upcoming season, Murray continues to dazzle Kentucky's staff on a daily basis with his ability to put the ball in the basket.

The Wildcats return several key pieces -- Tyler Ulis, Alex Poythress, and Marcus Lee -- that have doses of collegiate experience, but none of those guys is a proven double-figure scorer.

In assessing how good former Kentucky All-American Anthony Davis can be, his NBA coach suggested historically good. (http://www.kentucky.com/2015/10/24/4103335/uk-basketball-notebook-sec-makes.html)

Quote
"Obviously, I think he can be one of the all-time great players who've ever played in this league," New Orleans Coach Alvin Gentry said before the Pelicans played the Sacramento Kings last weekend in Rupp Arena.

Gentry cited Davis' size (listed at 6-foot-10) and speed (relative to other players of his size), plus one other less-obvious attribute.

"His knowledge of the game," Gentry said. "That's where people really don't understand. He's got a really good knowledge of the game for a 22-year-old."

It's easy to forget that Davis is 22 and would be an NBA rookie if all college players stayed in school four years.

Gentry mentioned another intangible.

"He's just all about the team," he said of Davis. "He's all about winning. Usually with the great ones, that's the first thing they think about: the team.

"When you add all those things together, barring an injury, he can be one of the best all-time great players to ever play this game."

Rajon Rondo, arguably the least appreciated former great Kentucky player, is enjoying something of a renaissance this NBA season. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article46822205.html)

Quote
he was leading the league in assists (10.8 per game). This after being traded by Boston, banished by Dallas and generally considered an undesirable within the last year.

Rondo signed a one-year, $9.5 million contract with Sacramento. Speculation quickly followed that he would clash with Coach George Karl. That hasn’t happened, as Karl suggested when the Kings played an exhibition game in Rupp Arena.

“It’s pretty much fun watching him recreate his career a little bit,” Karl said last week. “He’s kind of seized the moment and played at a high, high level. I really enjoy coaching him.”

“I’m more so into reading now,” Rondo said.

Former Rupp Runt and now Hall of Famer Louie Dampier made a lasting impression as a shooter. Former UCLA player Lynn Shackelford recalled being on the Miami Floridians and watching Dampier shoot in ABA games. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article48205670.html)

Dampier was inducted in the Naismith Hall of Fame this year.

On Monday, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will announce the nominees for the class of 2016.

The Hall of Fame finally made changes in how it goes about picking nominees. The time required to no longer be an active player was reduced from five to four years.
 (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article50663715.html)

Quote
The Hall also disbanded a committee set up to review players, coaches and officials from the American Basketball Association. That means Rupp’s Runt Louie Dampier, a member of the class of 2015, will be the final player enshrined through the ABA committee.

In a statement, Jerry Colangelo explained.

“Over the past five years, the ABA Committee has fulfilled our promise by honoring legends such as Artis Gilmore, Mel Daniels, Roger Brown, Bobby ‘Slick’ Leonard and Louie Dampier,” said Colangelo, chairman of the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Former ABA players remain eligible for consideration through other committees.

Weighty matter (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article51676040.html)

Quote
Dan Issel, the career scoring leader for UK’s men’s basketball program, put this in perspective.

Issel acknowledged that adding weight will help UK freshman Skal Labissiere deal with physical play. But, Issel added, more pounds is not a magic cure.

For instance, the Denver Nuggets drafted LSU guard Chris Jackson (Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf) with the third pick of the 1990 NBA Draft. The Nuggets immediately decided he needed to gain weight to withstand physical play in the NBA.

“He came in here like a fat, little pig his rookie year,” Issel said, “and he was awful. He was terrible.”

In Jackson’s second season, Issel became the Nuggets’ coach.

“We got a bunch of that weight off,” Issel said, “and he was a much better player.”

So, Issel said, a slender player like Labissiere should be careful about putting on weight.

“Sure, 20 more pounds and more muscle would certainly help the young man,” Issel said. “But you don’t have to be a bodybuilder to play basketball.”

Quote
A&M senior guard Alex Caruso speaks of collecting steals as many players speak of scoring points.

"I'm not going to go out looking for the steal," Caruso said of the No. 20 Aggies hosting Arkansas at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the teams' Southeastern Conference opener. "But I'm going to play my game, and eventually it's going to end up in my hands."

The ball has done just that on 228 occasions over Caruso's four seasons with the Aggies, and with one more steal he'll snap the school record held by guard David Edwards from 1991-94.

"It's just me playing hard and having fun," Caruso, 6-5, said of two of the prime ingredients of his theft success. "Coach (Billy) Kennedy has probably cringed at a couple I've gotten, and then a bunch that I've missed. But being able to play at A&M and have my name in some type of record book is cool to leave (behind)."

Quote
An LSU committee that approves statues and other honorifics for former athletes has unanimously agreed to erect a statue of basketball legend Pete Maravich on campus after years of debate over the proposal.

The LSU Athletic Hall of Fame Committee was expected to take up the Maravich statue plan after the university’s Board of Supervisors recently expressed support and re-tooled the campus policy on student athlete statues.

Maravich, who died in 1988 at the age of 40, left college a few credits short of obtaining his degree to play professional ball. LSU’s old policy required that anyone honored with a statue have earned a degree.

From today's Tribune: Former MU commit Punter thriving in senior season at Tennessee and will face Tigers at 2 p.m. http://www.columbiatribune.com/sports/mu_basketball/former-mu-commit-punter-thriving-in-senior-season-at-tennessee/article_cb201840-c63a-5bb5-9d4a-0b17b39def89.html …

Quote

Surely Missouri basketball fans have wondered over the past two years what might have been if Frank Haith didn’t leave the Tigers for Tulsa in April 2014.

Tennessee’s Kevin Punter hasn’t spent much time considering the alternative, even though he committed to play at Missouri less than two weeks before Haith’s departure. The 6-foot-2 senior guard from the Bronx, N.Y., has been too preoccupied with his job as the Volunteers’ go-to player and one of the SEC’s leading scorers.

But Punter does acknowledge that in a parallel universe, he would be wearing a Missouri uniform when the Tigers and Volunteers tip off at 2 p.m. Saturday at Mizzou Arena.

“The only reason I wanted to go there was to play with and for Frank Haith,” Punter said in a phone interview this week. “Obviously, if he stayed, I would have been a Mizzou Tiger.”

Punter, who had just wrapped up a high-scoring sophomore season at State Fair Community College in Sedalia, was as surprised as everyone else by Haith’s decision...



Missouri fans could torture themselves imagining Punter playing in the Tigers’ backcourt. They could pull their hair out wondering what a guard averaging 22.4 points — 10th nationally and second only to Mississippi’s Stefan Moody in the SEC — might have done to improve an anemic MU offense that ranks last in the league in scoring, second-to-last in field-goal percentage and last in 3-point field-goal percentage.

But too many variables have changed to arrive at a certain answer.

Punter isn’t even playing for the same coach he signed with at Tennessee.

The school fired Tyndall after last season.

Quote
Ben Simmons makes his first and likely only appearance at Thompson-Boling Arena on Saturday.

...I wonder how Simmons would fare against LSU's all-time stars.

While we're imagining, how much fun it would be to watch the all-time LSU team take on the all-time Tennessee team?

Did you know Tennessee has produced six of the SEC's top 20 career scorers? No other school has more than three.

Here's a lineup, with a sixth man to spare:

Allan Houston ranks No. 2 (2,801 points); Ernie Grunfeld is fifth (2,249); Tony White sixth (2,219); Chris Lofton 10th (2,131); Reggie Johnson 14th (2,103) and Dale Ellis 20th (2,065).

Missing anyone? Only Bernard King, the greatest Vol of them all.

King, unlike the others, played only three years, in which he scored 1,962 points. He averaged 25.8 points and 13.2 rebounds for his career. So King is the go-to guy on the all-time Tennessee team.

Lofton is the SEC's all-time 3-point shooting king. Houston ranks fourth. Each hit a healthy 42 percent of his attempts.

Houston is also the SEC's No. 2 career free-throw shooter (minimum 500 attempts) at 84.9 percent. White is third.

Ellis, like King, was a two-time SEC player of the year and a consensus All-American.

That's a strong group. But get a load of LSU's crew.

Pete Maravich, in three years (1968-70), put up numbers that will never be approached. He scored 3,667 points, averaging a mind-blowing 44.2 points per game.

Chris Jackson (1989-90) averaged 29 points a game over his two seasons. He had four 50-point games. In three games against UT, Jackson averaged a Maravichian 44 points.

Shaquille O'Neal was the 1991 national college player of the year. As a sophomore he averaged 27.6 points and 14.7 rebounds. As a junior, 24.1 points, 14.0 rebounds. In SEC annals, he ranks second in blocked shots and first with six triple-doubles.

Modern fans are less familiar with Bob Pettit. Pettit was arguably the SEC's best player pre-1960. In the era when freshmen were ineligible, Pettit averaged 27.4 points over three years (1952-54). He played 11 more years in the NBA, averaging 26.4 points.

Pettit, like Maravich, is enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. O'Neal is a rim-shattering slam dunk for the 2016 class that will be announced this spring. King is UT's only rep in the hall.

Then there's Rudy Macklin (1977-81), LSU's forward who ranks 16th in the SEC with 2,080 points.

What a game it would be. I never saw Maravich in person, only on TV. King and Jackson are probably the two best SEC players I watched live.

Simmons will never show up on career charts, at least not as a collegian. He's of the one-and-done era...

Lowe: Pettit a 'Standard Bearer' of LSU Basketball @TigerDroppings @dandydonlsu  http://www.lsusports.net//ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=210740895&DB_OEM_ID=5200 …

Quote
It surprises me as a basketball fan and an LSU basketball guy when I hear people talk about the history of the game at our school and the names are thrown out of the great and near-great players that have worn the purple and gold in the last 100-plus years.

What saddens me is when they forget a name that should be on the list without any exceptions, reservations or qualifying monikers.

Robert “Bob” Pettit.

Come this Saturday at soon after 4:30 p.m., maybe Bob Pettit will be recognized and remembered by a new group of basketball fans who may not be aware or who may have forgotten what a great star of the game he was.

He will join Shaquille O’Neal as the second player to have a statue unveiled for him outside the practice facility of the building named for another of the LSU greats, Pete Maravich.

Pettit will be there to unveil his playing likeness and even at 83, this gentle giant of a man could probably still take on a few in a game of “horse.”

He is one of the standard bearers of LSU Basketball.

My point is very simple. If you are a basketball fan of any kind in Baton Rouge you should make the effort to come to the statue area and celebrate the life and legacy of a special basketball legend. A Louisiana guy. Future statues and location and all that rhetoric is just so much noise. Those things will happen and are for another time. This is the time to salute Bob Pettit and remember why this guy is in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

All-City as a prepster. All-American at LSU. Led his team to the Final Four at a time when no one knew what the Final Four meant. First LSU player to have his number retired in any sport. Street later named for him.

Second pick NBA Draft. NBA MVP, NBA All-Star MVP, Scoring champ, NBA Champion...

LSU highlights of Bob Pettit (http://www.lsusports.net/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=5200&ATCLID=210746191)

Quote
Bob Pettit is one of just two players to score 60 points in a basketball game joining Pete Maravich. He posted 60 points against Holy Cross in his second year against Holy Cross (12/7/53).

Here are some of his top scoring games:

60 – vs. Louisiana College (12/7/53)
57 – vs. Georgia (1/9/54)
50 – vs. Georgia (1/18/52)
44 – vs. Georgia Tech (2/13/54)
43 – vs. Georgia (1/8/54)
40 – vs. Ole Miss (1/30/52)

Top Scorers In LSU History
3,667 – Pete Maravich (1967-70)
2,080 – Rudy Macklin (1976-81)
1,989 – Tasmin Mitchell (2005-10)
1,942 – Howard Carter (1980-83)
1,941 – Shaquille’ O’Neal (1989-92)
1,916 – Bob Pettit (1,951-54) (sic)

Top Rebounders in LSU History
1,276 – Rudy Macklin (1976-81)
1,217 – Shaquille O’Neal (1989-92)
1,168 – Al Sanders (1969-72)
1,039 – Bob Pettit (1951-54)


    1954 NBA Draft – 2nd overall pick, 1st round, Milwaukee Hawks
    Signed a contract for $11,000 – all-time high for an NBA rookie at that time
    1955 – NBA Rookie of the Year – averaging 20.4 points, 13.8 rebounds
    1955 – Second rookie to win All-NBA honors

The Hawks, after finishing last that year would move to St. Louis. In his second season Pettit adjusted his game so that he would get to the free-throw line for easy points for his team and foul trouble for his opponents. Pettit told one writer: “Offensive rebounds were worth eight to 12 points a night for me. Then I’d get another eight to 10 at the free throw line. All I had to do was make a few jump shots and I was on my way to a good night.”

1956 – NBA MVP leading NBA in scoring (25.7 ppg) and rebounds (16.2 rpg)
1956 – NBA All-Star Game MVP (20 points, 24 rebounds, 7 assists)

When he retired, he was the first NBA player to eclipse 20,000 points and nearly 30 percent of his points (6,182) came at the foul line.

He finished with 11 all-star game appearances, two regular season MVPs, four All-Star MVPs, an NBA title and 10 first-team All-NBA selections.

Pettit became a very successful businessman after his retirement and also was one of the first color analysts to work with John Ferguson on the old TVS network broadcasts of SEC Basketball.

Was later replaced on commentary by former teammate Joe "String Music" Dean.

Quote
Stephen Curry reminds Phil Jackson of a former NBA guard whom LSU fans might remember as well as anyone.

The legendary, 11-time NBA champion coach, now the New York Knicks' president, compared the reigning MVP to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who played his college career for the Tigers as Chris Jackson.

The former star, who played for LSU from 1988-1990, remains among the program's leaders in various scoring and shooting categories, including a still-standing best of 10 3-pointers in a single game.

His 29.0 points per game average during his two seasons, ranks second behind only Pete Maravich.

"Never seen anything like SCurry?" Phil Jackson posted to Twitter. "Remind you of Chris Jackson/ Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, who had a short but brilliant run in NBA?"

Quote
With his sixth double-digit assist output in eight games, Ulis is averaging 9.8 dimes over that span. He’s up to 207 assists for the season, currently third in UK single-season history behind Roger Harden (1985-86) and John Wall (2009-10). He’s on pace to break Wall’s record (241) with another five games, which is easily doable as the Cats have a regular-season finale, SEC tournament and NCAA tournament to go.

Meanwhile, the freshman Murray, who dropped 18 points in the second half against the Gators and now has nine consecutive 20-plus-point performances, ranks fourth on the school’s single-season list for made 3-pointers. He has hit 95, behind only Derrick Miller (1989-90), Travis Ford (1992-93) and Jodie Meeks (2008-09). At his current pace, Murray would need seven games to break Meeks’ record of 117.

Murray is averaging 22.5 points in SEC play and 19.9 for the season, putting him fourth on the UK freshman scoring list with 597 points, behind Julius Randle (2013-14), Wall and Brandon Knight (2010-11). Based on his average, Murray could break Knight’s record (657) in just three more games.

No. 68 — Casey Prather
Prather led Florida's Final Four team in scoring that year with 13.8 points a game and had 57 points and 24 rebounds in the NCAA Tournament. He was a first-team All-SEC selection that year and led the SEC in field-goal percentage at 60 percent.

No. 61— Marreese Speights
Speights was a sub on the 2007 national championship team and then became a rebounding force the following year before turning pro. He led the 2007-08 team in rebounding and blocked shots and his 66 dunks that season are the most at UF (until Egbunu this week).

No. 60 — Chris Richard
How can a guy with four starts in his career be this high up on the list? Richard did exactly what Florida needed him to do as he helped the Gators win back-to-back national titles. His field-goal percentages of 69.8 and 69.0 those two seasons are the second and third best at UF.

No. 58 — Kenyan Weaks
Weaks is Florida’s all-time leader in career 3-point percentage at 51 percent. He averaged 12.7 points a game and is 32nd all-time in scoring. He also led Florida in steals in 1998-99.

No. 57 — Alex Tyus
Tyus started 106 games and finished with 1,333 points while helping Florida back to the NCAA Tournament in 2010 and into the Elite Eight the following year. In a Sweet 16 game against BYU, he had 19 points and 17 rebounds. Tyus is ninth all-time in blocked shots and fourth in dunks.

No. 50 — Greg Stolt
Stolt was the first pick-and-pop power forward for Billy Donovan and helped the Gators reach the Sweet 16 in 1999.

The diminutive point guard is Florida’s all-time leader in career assists with 547. They called him “Big Shot Erv” for a reason whether it was the huge 3 he made at Georgia or winning shot against UCLA in the NCAA Tournament. He is 10th all-time in steals and, in 2011-12 he led the SEC in assist-to-turnover ratio. [His last steal was a taco from a food truck on the day after his last game as a Gator.]

No. 44 — Brett Nelson
Nelson led Florida for three straight years in 3-point percentage and was a key member of the 2000 national finalists. He was All-SEC twice and finished ninth all-time in career assists. He also led Florida twice in steals and is second all-time in 3-point shots made.

'Grit and Grind' JaMychal Green turns in his highest-scoring NBA game: http://ow.ly/Z5eip 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CcvU7SQUYAAAK2O.jpg)

Quote
In Memphis' 104-98 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night, the former Alabama All-SEC selection made five of his seven shots, including a 3-pointer, and four of his five free throws for 15 points. He'd never scored more than 13 points in an NBA game before Wednesday's victory.

While Green is playing his first full NBA season, the Memphis roster has seven players with at least eight seasons of NBA experience, topped by Vince Carter, who is in his 18th pro campaign. Green said the veterans are helping him adjust to his increase in playing time.

"It means a lot, just because we have a veteran team, and for the vets to speak to me and tell me things to help better my game," Green said. "I really appreciate it, so I'm just taking it all in."

Green was Alabama's Mr. Basketball in 2008 and the state's Class 1A Player of the Year three times at St. Jude in Montgomery before going to Alabama. He left the Capstone 11th in scoring and 11th in rebounding in Crimson Tide history.

To beat Sacramento, Memphis had to overcome another former All-State player – Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, who starred for LeFlore in Mobile.

Cousins had 18 points, 16 rebounds and six assists against the Grizzlies, but his point output was the lowest of his past eight games. The two-time All-Star is averaging 27.0 points and 11.5 rebounds per game, which rank fourth and fifth, respectively, in the NBA this season.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, whose 2011 team lost to St. Anthony's in the North Non-Public B final which was then the unofficial national championship game, will be on hand to support his old team. Kidd-Gilchrist's season with the Charlotte Hornets is done due to injury.

"Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who will be at the game again on Saturday, was here on Tuesday night and delivered a very compelling speech after the game," Chavannes said. "He spoke about how despite all of his accomplishments, including an NCAA title [with Kentucky] and being drafted No. 2 overall, the one thing that haunts him the most is that he did not win his final high school game.

"He talked to the team about not taking anything for grant in life and in basketball, and about controlling what you can control, such as defending and rebounding. Later that night, I continued the conversation with Mike about the 2011 game for about an hour. It shows how significant the high school basketball experience is, even for those that go on to the highest level, and even as the years pass. Most importantly, Mike's presence and speech connects this team to the legacy of St. Pat's that came before them, and reminds them of the legacy they are trying to pass forward to the future of the program."

The winner of Saturday's game will face the Mater Dei-Gill St. Bernard's winner in the Non Public-B South title game, which is set for 8 p.m. on March 10 at Rutgers.

Boynton had a lot of moving parts in his shot, but when he got it going he was electric. Boynton made the four-point play a normal thing for the Gators and was a three-time All-SEC honoree. He is second all-time in scoring at Florida and averaged in double figures all four seasons.

No. 37 — Craig Brown
One of the best 3-point shooters in the clutch, Brown made 40.9 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He also made 76.6 percent of his free throws and led Florida to its first Final Four in 1994. Coach Lon Kruger’s first Gator signee, Brown had 78 games in double figures.

No. 36 — Dametri Hill
Hill was the center in Florida’s first Final Four team and finished his career 22nd all-time in scoring with 1,376 points.

No. 34 — Nick Calathes
A wizard with the ball in his hands, Calathes played only two seasons before turning pro. He was a first-team All-SEC selection in 2009

No. 33 — Andrew DeClercq [SEC Network Studio Analyst]
DeClercq found his way onto All-SEC teams in all four of his seasons at Florida. He was named Florida’s legend of the SEC in 2012.

No. 31 — Erik Murphy
The ultimate pick-and-pop player for Billy Donovan, Murphy made 43.5 percent of his 3-point attempts for his career. He was selected to the SEC All-Tournament team as a junior and a senior

No. 30 — Anthony Roberson
The man they called “Peep” was a first-team All-SEC selection twice and scored 1,505 points in his career

No. 29 — Taurean Green
Green was the game manager for consecutive runs to national championships

No. 28 — Patric Young
Billy Donovan often referred to Young as the best post defender in the nation during his senior season.

No. 27 — Stacey Poole
Poole was a prolific scorer despite being sidelined twice with Achilles tears. He is sixth all-time at UF in scoring and scored at least 20 points 33 times in his career.

No. 26 — Chandler Parsons
Parsons hit a pair of buzzer-beaters in 2010 to get Florida back into the NCAA Tourney and turned into the SEC Player of the Year — Florida’s first —

No. 25 — Dan Cross
Cross was a first-team All-SEC selection twice and the point guard during Florida’s memorable run to the Final Four in 1994.

No. 22 — Lee Humphrey
“Lee from three” became a common phrase for UF announcer Mick Hubert as Humphrey still owns the NCAA Tournament record for 3-pointers made with 47. He made 18 of them in two Final Fours

Top 100 players in the 100 years of Gator hoops: 11-20 - via @Gator_sports http://www.gatorsports.com/article/20160307/ARTICLES/160309768 …

Quote
No. 19 — Scottie Wilbekin
The point guard went to three straight Elite Eights before carrying the team to the Final Four as a senior. He was the SEC’s player of the year in 2014 and was also the MVP of the SEC Tournament

No. 17 — Jason Williams
This was a difficult one because Williams played only 20 games for UF, a shooting star that flashed by us so quickly you barely saw him. But those 20 games were incredible. He averaged 17.1 points a game and set the UF record for assists in a game with 17

No. 14 — Bradley Beal
Beal only played one season, but still managed to squeeze in 37 starts. He helped Florida make it to the Elite Eight in 2012 when he was All-SEC.

No. 12 — David Lee
Lee finished his career with 1,436 points and played in the NCAA Tournament in each of his four seasons. He averaged in double figures in each of his last three seasons. When Florida beat Kentucky to win its first SEC Tournament, Lee had 17 rebounds in the title game. He finished his career with 22 double-doubles, 109 blocked shots, 869 rebounds and 155 dunks, the third most in UF history. He averaged a double-double in SEC games as a senior.

No. 11 — Matt Bonner
Bonner is 10th all-time in scoring with 1,570 points. He was all-SEC three times and an honorable mention All-American twice. He shot 50.3 percent from the field for his career. A reserve on Florida’s national finals team in 2000, Bonner blossomed into a perfect combo player who could fight inside (778 career rebounds) and fire from 3 (he shot 47.4 percent from beyond the arc as a senior).

Florida's all-time team of the last 25 seasons per The Gainesville Sun

Kevin Brockway ‏@gatorhoops 6h6 hours ago

Top 100 players in the 100 years of Gator hoops: 1-10 - via @Gator_sports http://www.gatorsports.com/article/20160308/ARTICLES/160309731?tc=cr …

2 — Al Horford
When we are evaluating the players from the team that won two straight national titles, it's easy to think of them as one entity because they played so well together.

Here's why Horford ranks the highest of any of them — when Florida absolutely needed a basket, he's the guy they went to.

He has 28 double-doubles in his career and had the second most at UF in his junior season. He finished sixth in rebounding at Florida for his career and second in blocked shots. He almost averaged a double-double in his junior season.

4 — Mike Miller
Perhaps more than anybody, Miller changed Florida basketball. When he chose Florida over Kansas, it signalled the arrival of coach Billy Donovan.

He was only at UF for two seasons before declaring for the NBA draft, but Florida went from a losing record to a Sweet 16 berth in his first season. A year later, the Gators reached the national title game.

Miller gave Florida a big guy who could handle the ball and shoot 3s.

5 — Udonis Haslem
When Haslem was a senior, Billy Donovan and I had a discussion about his legacy. Donovan felt Haslem, who played in the NCAA Tournament in each of his four years, was the best player in Florida history.

I disagreed, but he was definitely in the conversation.

Haslem started in 125 games and seemed to get better in every one of them. He shot 58.4 percent from the field for his career and had 99 games where he scored in double figures.

Haslem's 1,781 points are the fourth most in Florida history and he averaged 13.7 points for his career.

7 — Joakim Noah
Numbers hardly tell the story for Noah. Sure, he is third all-time in blocked shots and second in career free throw percentage.

But it was his heart that was a big reason why Florida won two straight national titles. He was the emotional leader of the team and probably the most interesting guy I covered at Florida in any sport.

He was also the Most Outstanding Player in the 2006 Final Four.

9 — Corey Brewer
The ever-present smile is his trademark, but defense was his forte at UF. Brewer could handle anything you threw at him from a point guard to a center.

He was the Most Outstanding Player if the 2007 Final Four when he scored 32 points with 10 rebounds in the two games.

Brewer also recorded the first triple-double in school history and was a starter on Florida's two national championship teams. He had 300 assists, 176 steals, 44 blocked shots and 469 rebounds for his career to go along with 1,225 points.

He was also the co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2006.


No. 11 — Matt Bonner
Bonner is 10th all-time in scoring with 1,570 points. He was all-SEC three times and an honorable mention All-American twice. He shot 50.3 percent from the field for his career. A reserve on Florida’s national finals team in 2000, Bonner blossomed into a perfect combo player who could fight inside (778 career rebounds) and fire from 3 (he shot 47.4 percent from beyond the arc as a senior).

No. 12 — David Lee
Lee finished his career with 1,436 points and played in the NCAA Tournament in each of his four seasons. He averaged in double figures in each of his last three seasons. When Florida beat Kentucky to win its first SEC Tournament, Lee had 17 rebounds in the title game. He finished his career with 22 double-doubles, 109 blocked shots, 869 rebounds and 155 dunks, the third most in UF history. He averaged a double-double in SEC games as a senior.

No. 14 — Bradley Beal
Beal only played one season, but still managed to squeeze in 37 starts. He helped Florida make it to the Elite Eight in 2012 when he was All-SEC.

No. 17 — Jason Williams

What ever happened to the stars of the first SEC Basketball Tournament played at Bridgestone Arena 15 years ago?

Then called Gaylord Entertainment Center, the Nashville arena hosted the 2001 SEC Tournament, where Kentucky beat Ole Miss for the title. This week, Bridgestone Arena will host its sixth SEC Tournament:

Tayshaun Prince (Kentucky)
Then: Prince took over the 2001 SEC championship game, burying a tournament record six 3-pointers and finishing with 26 points and 12 rebounds to carry Kentucky to a 77-55 win over Ole Miss. Prince already had earned the SEC Player of the Year award in the regular season. That Kentucky team ultimately lost to USC in the NCAA Tournament Sweet Sixteen.

Now: Prince was drafted by the Pistons in 2002 and won an NBA title with them in his second season. He has played more than 1,000 games over 14 NBA seasons for the Pistons, Grizzlies, Celtics and now Timberwolves, and scored more than 11,000 points. Prince earned NBA All-Defensive Team honors four times and remains one of the league’s longest-tenured current players.

Keith Bogans (Kentucky)

Then: His 65 points in three games were the most by any player in the 2001 SEC Tournament. Bogans had 23 points against both South Carolina and Arkansas and then added 19 points in Kentucky’s 77-55 victory over Ole Miss in the title game. Two years later, Bogans earned SEC Co-Player of the Year and SEC Tournament MVP honors in leading the Wildcats to another title.

Now: Bogans became an NBA journeyman, changing teams nine times over 11 years. Now 35 and nearly three years removed from his last NBA game, Bogans is still trying to prolong his career. He was in the NBA Summer League last year and currently plays for the Westchester Knicks of the NBA D-League.

Rahim Lockhart (Ole Miss)
Lockhart led Ole Miss’ resurgence to nine straight wins and its first SEC title game appearance in 11 years. He had 17 points and 11 rebounds in a rout of Tennessee and 11 points in a semifinal upset of No. 5 Florida. The Rebels ran out of gas in the championship loss to Kentucky, but they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Tournament.

Now: Lockhart had a brief NBA D-League career and even a quick stop with the Harlem Globetrotters, according to the team’s official website. But he set aside playing for coaching. Lockhart was a very successful high school coach in Mississippi and now serves as head coach at Jones County (Miss.) Junior College, one of the top JuCo programs in our nation.

Justin Reed (Ole Miss)
Then: The 2001 SEC Freshman of the Year lost a tooth in a bad collision with UT’s Ron Slay in a quarterfinal win. But Reed returned to score 15 points, including a key basket with 19 seconds remaining, in leading Ole Miss’ semifinal upset of No. 5 Florida. He helped guide that 2001 squad to the program’s first Sweet Sixteen appearance, and Reed earned All-SEC honors in all four seasons.

Now: Reed spent three seasons in the NBA, coming off the bench for the Celtics and Timberwolves. Twice, he was involved in big trades that included Juwan Howard and Wally Szczerbiak.

Joe Johnson (Arkansas)
Then: Earning his second straight SEC All-Tournament honor, Johnson got the Razorbacks to the semifinal round. He poured in 27 points in a quarterfinal win over LSU and then, despite falling to Kentucky, he scored a game-high 24 points in the semifinal. It was coach Nolan Richardson’s final SEC Tournament appearance

Now: Last week, Johnson entered the NBA’s Top 50 all-time scoring list, continuing a very successful pro career. He was voted an NBA All-Star seven times, including six with the Hawks, and ranks in the top-10 of active career scoring leaders with more than 19,000 points (one spot behind Dwyane Wade).

Ron Slay (Tennessee)
Then: Slay, a former Pearl-Cohn standout, had two superb games in the 2001 SEC Tournament, racking up 21 points and 11 rebounds in a win over Auburn and 20 points in a loss to Ole Miss. Two years later, Slay was named SEC Co-Player of the Year.

Now: Slay was not drafted in 2003, and instead began a pro career overseas. He has played for 15 teams over the past 13 years in Turkey, Israel, Venezuela, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Puerto Rico. Last season, Slay played for Benfica in Lisbon, Portugal, one of the best teams in Europe.

NASHVILLE — The entire crowd was on its feet for Stefan Moody, but he didn’t notice.

Ole Miss’ star point guard was unaware that he had fouled out of the Rebels’ SEC tournament game against Alabama, and it took him a few moments to realize the fans at Bridgestone Arena were roaring for him.

“I wasn’t even paying attention to it at first,” Moody said. “I was trying to stay on the court still. I guess it’s a good feeling. But I’m still consumed by the fact that we lost.”

Moody’s 39-point, 8-rebound night ended in an 81-73 loss to the Crimson Tide.

The Ole Miss star dazzled fans in spite of the “L,” pouring in 17 first-half points and adding 22 in the second frame as the Rebels attempted to keep pace.

Alabama hit 13 3-pointers, but none of them were as memorable as Moody’s 30-footer that had the basketball world thinking Steph Curry was in the building. Or the off-balance prayer between two defenders after ripping down a loose ball. In all, he hit eight 3-pointers, tying the single-game tournament record.

SEC players from 2015-16 who would be in consideration for making the school's all-time team spanning the last 25 years:

Tyler Ulis, UK and Danuel House, A&M

Ulis vs. House in Aggies' 82-77 overtime loss to Kentucky in the SEC tournament title game. (http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/aggies/article/Kentucky-defeats-Texas-A-M-in-OT-to-win-SEC-6887872.php)

Quote
Two of the SEC's top players were at their best in the league title game, as UK's Tyler Ulis scored a career-high 30 points, and A&M's Danuel House led all scorers with 32 points.

"The fight from both teams was outstanding," A&M senior Alex Caruso said. "That's why we finished co-champions of the SEC, and there were two really good teams battling it out."

The No. 16 Wildcats led 64-60 with about four minutes left when Murray missed a 3-point attempt from the right corner. Teammate Isaiah Briscoe snagged the rebound on the other side of the basket, and fired the ball right back to Murray, who smoothly sank his second attempt from the same spot.

Down seven at that point, the No. 17 Aggies clawed back and tied the game at 71 on House's off-balance runner in the lane with 19 seconds left. Ulis started the scoring in overtime with a 3-pointer, and House again tied the game at 75 with a 3-pointer.

Aggies were trying to win their first league tournament since 1987, a little more than a week after earning at least a share of a regular-season title for the first time since 1986. Both those triumphs took place in the long-gone Southwest Conference.

Kentucky, in snapping an eight-game A&M winning streak, also earned its league-record 30th SEC tournament title.

SEC players from 2015-16 who would be in consideration for making the school's all-time team spanning the last 25 years:

Stefan Moody, Ole Miss

Senior Stefan Moody has been named the 2016 C Spire Howell Trophy winner, the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame announced Monday. It is the second-straight year Moody has received the honor. (http://www.olemisssports.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/030716aab.html)

Quote
The Howell Trophy, named for the legendary Bailey Howell, goes to the most outstanding men's collegiate basketball player in Mississippi. Moody, a native of Kissimmee, Florida, joins Jarvis Varnado as the only two players in the award’s history to win the trophy back-to-back years.

The is the four-straight year a Rebel has been named the state’s top player after Jarvis Summers took home the award in 2014 and Marshall Henderson won the honor in 2013. Moody edged Mississippi State’s Gavin Ware and Quindary Weatherspoon to receive the honor.

The fifth-fastest player in reach 1,000 career points in Ole Miss history, Moody leads the SEC, and ranks ninth nationally, in scoring at 23.1 point per game. He became only the fifth player in Ole Miss history and the 26th player in SEC history to top 700 points in a season. His 43-point performance against MSU on Senior Night is tied for the highest single-game total in the SEC this year, the 11th highest in nation and the 13th highest in school history. It also marked the most points scored by a Rebel since Gerald Glass dropped 53 on LSU in 1989 and was the most in a league game since Kentucky’s Jodie Meeks scored 45 against Arkansas in 2009...

“[We felt] not respected,” House said, according to TexAgs.com. “We played four Big 12 games early and we won all of them.”

However, Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy took a diplomatic approach.

“We’re happy with where we were seeded,” Kennedy said.

Kentucky and Texas A&M will have a chance to earn respect. Aggies begin Friday against No. 14 Green Bay.

WJHL-TV: League Coaches Name Vols Kevin Punter Jr. To All-SEC Team (http://wjhl.com/2016/03/08/league-coaches-name-vols-kevin-punter-jr-to-all-sec-team)

Quote
Southeastern Conference men’s basketball coaches’ postseason awards were announced Tuesday, and Tennessee point guard Kevin Punter Jr. was a second team All-SEC selection.

Punter made his final appearance of the season Feb. 18 at Kentucky. A stress fracture in his right foot ended his collegiate career after he averaged 22.2 points per game through 26 contests during the 2015-16 season.

In addition to shifting from shooting guard to point guard this season, Punter also underwent a complete mechanical overhaul of his jump shot this past summer. The results were extraordinary.

The senior started all 26 games in which he appeared and finished as the second-leading scorer in the SEC. He scored 20 or more points 18 times and posted three 30-point games.

His .460 field-goal percentage was the second-best among all guards in the SEC this season, and he also shot .369 from 3-point range and .817 from the free-throw line.

In five games against opponents ranked in the Associated Press Top 25, Punter was at his best, averaging 25.6 points per game. His top scoring performance of the year was a career-high 36 points in Tennessee’s win over 24th-ranked South Carolina on Jan. 23.

The Bronx, New York, native ranked second on the team in assists (3.5 apg) and steals (1.4 spg) while playing 34.1 minutes per game.

Punter did not travel with the Vols to Nashville for this week’s SEC Tournament because he is undergoing surgery on his right foot in his hometown of New York City Tuesday.

This marks the 11th consecutive season in which Tennessee has produced a first- or second-team All-SEC honoree.

Almost goes with saying, here is one more SEC player from 2015-16 who would be in consideration for making the school's all-time team spanning the last 25 years:

A Salute to Alex Caruso: one of the most decorated players in A&M history (https://www.12thmanfoundation.com/magazine/sec-mens-basketball-tournament-coverage/a-salute-to-alex-caruso.aspx)

Quote
A largely unheralded wing for A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Caruso wasn't even the most coveted prospect in A&M's signing class. That distinction went to another hometown hero: Bryan's J-Mychal Reese. Reese was ranked by many as the No. 1 high school point guard in the country and a top-100 player nationally.

Most recruiting gurus considered Reese to be a lynchpin recruit who would play the Aggies into several NCAA Tournaments. Caruso, meanwhile, was looked at as more of a feel-good story: a solid player who was staying home to play for the school where his father, Mike, was a longtime associate athletic director.

Those so-called experts couldn't have been more wrong.

Reese transferred from A&M after playing in 39 games. Caruso, meanwhile, worked his way into the starting lineup as a freshman and never looked back. After starting 17 contests as a rookie, Caruso has missed just one start since his sophomore season.

 "It's interesting how it has worked out like that," said Caruso, now the A&M record holder in steals and assists. "It's special, and it's a testament to how hard I have worked, and how hard the guys around me have worked in both high school and college."

Caruso spent much of his first three years at A&M playing point guard for the Aggies, but the arrival of graduate transfer Anthony Collins took some pressure off of Caruso to be the team's quarterback.

Caruso is no longer A&M's starting point guard, but he may be the team's most important player. He has been spectacular in the last four contests--all wins--by dishing out 27 assists while having just three turnovers. When the Aggies lost five games between Jan. 27 and Feb. 13, Caruso had 17 turnovers and 23 assists.

Jones, a junior center, was named to the All-SEC first team for a second straight year. Baldwin, a sophomore point guard, was tabbed an All-SEC second-teamer. Kornet, a junior forward, made the all-defensive team.

Vanderbilt’s trio led the Commodores to a late-season run, winning 11 of their last 15 SEC games. Jones averaged 14.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game while shooting 59.4 percent from the field, second-best in the league. Baldwin led Vanderbilt in scoring (14.3 ppg) and ranked third in the SEC in assists (5.1). Kornet led the conference in blocks per game (2.96) and ranked seventh nationally.

Former #Auburn star Wes Flanigan lands first head coaching job: http://ow.ly/109kS6 

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ce6uuyQW8AAEnJM.jpg)

Quote
"As someone who was born and raised in Little Rock, this is a dream come true," Flanigan said, according to a news release. "I want to thank Chasse Conque and Chancellor Joel Anderson for this opportunity. I also want to thank my family for their love and support. But none of this happens without the student-athletes on our team. We asked each of them to sacrifice, and they bought in, worked hard, were unselfish, and through that we have established a culture. The next step for us is determining how far we can go as a team. For all the success we had last season, together we all can help Little Rock take the next step."

Flanigan, a Little Rock native, previously served as an assistant at Mississippi State, Nebraska, UAB and at UALR from 2004-2008.

During his playing career Flanigan averaged 10.1 points and 4.8 assists as an Auburn point guard from 1994 to 1997. He was named to the All-SEC Team as a junior and his 573 assists rank second all-time in program history. Prior to his senior season Flanigan had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor on his left arm.

"I think Little Rock has gotten a gem," said Coastal Carolina head coach Cliff Ellis, Flanigan's head coach at Auburn. "This guy knows the game and understands the game. It's been bred into him by his family. He understands the state of Arkansas and is constantly studying the game. He's got it all – he understands the game, is a great recruiter and understands all the parts of the job that come with it."

The Trojans (30-5) won their first outright Sun Belt Championship this season.

No future Kentucky Wildcat has ever been crowned the McDonald’s slam dunk champion, in an annual contest that dates back to 1984.

Thirty years ago, Rex Chapman almost took home the honor. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article69031347.html)

Quote
Chapman earned a perfect score for what would come to be known as “The Flip” — a dunk in which he flipped the ball over his head, caught it in the air and finished with a reverse jam.

“Unbelievable!” exclaimed Dick Vitale on that year’s broadcast. “Scintillating, sizzling, and they’re going to love him in Kentucky.”

Unfortunately for Chapman, a botched dunk attempt earlier in the the contest prevented him from achieving the highest total score. The winner that year was Chris Brooks...

Vol Allan Houston finished his college career with 2,801 points, which is second only to Pete Maravich (3,667) among SEC players. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article72229552.html)

Quote
Houston: “When I think of playing Kentucky, I tend to think of the four-point play … more than any other game.”

Two weeks before the 61-point blowout, Tennessee beat Kentucky 78-77 thanks to a four-point trip down court in the final seconds (a put-back of a missed free throw figured prominently).

Kentucky exacted plenty of payback in the SEC Tournament. The Cats led 41-17 at halftime, before really putting it on Tennessee (60-23 in the second half).

Of that humiliation, Houston said, “I try to find a silver lining in everything.”

Here’s what he came up with: Had he played well, perhaps he would have been drafted earlier than by the Detroit Pistons with the 11th pick in the 1993 NBA Draft.

“I ended up meeting my wife (Tamara), who was from Detroit,” Houston said. “So I always try to find a silver lining.”

Pitino had UK foul Allan to prevent a 3-point shot to tie the game. Houston made the first and missed the second.  Allen was fouled on a rebound put back and one.

Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray lit up Rupp Arena this past winter.

Ulis swept SEC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors and won the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s top point guard. Murray (20 points per game) became the second UK player of the 21st Century to average 20-plus points in a season (Jodie Meeks scored 23.7 per game in 2008-09).

In the future, will all of that be enough for either player to see their jerseys retired and hanging in Rupp Arena’s rafters? With the passing of time, how to honor big basketball stars who spent a short amount of time at Kentucky will become an intriguing issue for UK to address.

Since Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart initiated the UK Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005, there is a waiting period after leaving Kentucky before one can have a jersey retired.

Five years after a person has departed the university, they are eligible to be inducted into the UK Hall of Fame. To be eligible for a retired jersey, one must have been gone from UK for 10 years and first be chosen a member of the school’s athletics hall of fame. A UK-appointed committee makes those selections based on “athletic and academic accomplishments of the individual while at Kentucky, as well as post-UK accomplishments and character.”

Though the inclusion of one-and-done players in jersey retirement discussions stirs debate, there is nothing preventing early entrants into professional sports drafts from having a UK jersey retired. Kentucky long ago so honored Jamal Mashburn (men’s basketball) and Tim Couch (football), who each left college after three years.

Below is my ranking, from most deserving down, of John Calipari-recruited Kentucky players with plausible cases for someday having a retired jersey hang in Rupp Arena:

1.) Anthony Davis

The case for retiring his jersey: Davis was the best player on a team that won the 2012 national championship. He swept every major national player of the year honor, including the Wooden Award. In the summer after his stellar Kentucky freshman year, he was the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft and won a gold medal at the London Olympics as part of Team USA.

2.) John Wall

The case for retiring his jersey: Wall was the best player on a 35-3 team (2009-10) that relaunched the brand of Kentucky basketball. He was a consensus first-team All-American, the USBWA National Freshman of the Year and the SEC Player of the Year. After his one UK season, he became the first Kentucky player ever taken first overall in the NBA Draft.

3.) Tyler Ulis

The case for retiring his jersey: Winning SEC Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and the Cousy Award as a sophomore was an extraordinary individual season. As a freshman on the UK team that started 38-0, Ulis made huge clutch plays in a road win at archrival Louisville and in UK’s NCAA Tournament round of eight escape against Notre Dame.

4.) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

The case for retiring his jersey: As great a player as Anthony Davis was, MKG was the heart and soul of UK’s 2012 NCAA title team — a guy talented enough to be a consensus second-team All-American yet who also oozed positive intangibles.

5.) Brandon Knight

The case for retiring his jersey: Before Murray’s 720 points this season, Knight’s 2010-11 (657 points) had been the highest-scoring season by a Calipari-era player. Hit two game-winning shots in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, including one that eliminated No. 1 overall seed Ohio State, that helped end a 13-year UK Final Four drought.

6. Terrence Jones

The case for retiring his jersey: In two UK seasons (2010-12), played on two Final Four teams, won an NCAA title (2012), scored more than 1,000 career points (1.064) —

7.) DeMarcus Cousins

The case for retiring his jersey: A consensus second-team All-American who almost averaged a double-double (15.1 points, 9.9 rebounds) in his one UK season in 2009-10.

8.) Willie Cauley-Stein

The case for retiring his jersey: Rare three-year player in Calipari era. As defensive and rebounding specialist, was consensus first-team All-American in 2014-15 on Final Four team.

9.) Julius Randle

The case for retiring his jersey: Power forward averaged a double-double (15 points, 10.4 rebounds) for team that made a run to 2014 NCAA championship game.

10.) Jamal Murray

The case for retiring his jersey: In addition to his prolific scoring, Murray had a rock-solid all-around year, contributing 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game...

Remember, UK’s criteria for retired jerseys includes what one does after one leaves Kentucky.

So one-year players such as Karl-Anthony Towns and Devin Booker — whose individual numbers at UK were depressed by being part of 2014-15’s platoon system — presumably could play their ways into the Rupp Arena rafters with stellar pro careers.

What about Doron Lamb, a 1,000-point scorer (1,018) with two Final Four trips and an NCAA title to show for his time at UK?

Then, what of Aaron Harrison, who hit three straight game-winning shots in the 2014 NCAA Tournament? Does that magical run elevate a career that would not otherwise be retired-jersey worthy?

Ed Davender, a 49-year-old former University of Kentucky basketball star who suffered a heart attack on Tuesday, died late Thursday night. Retired Wildcats coach Joe B. Hall confirmed the sad news.

“I’m just so sad for the family,” said Hall, who recruited Davender and coached him as a freshman at UK before Eddie Sutton took over as coach. “I prayed for him. All the players held a prayer session for him. Many of them went to the hospital, because he was so well thought of. He was a good teammate that everyone enjoyed being around.

“It’s always a tragedy when a young person like that comes down. It’s the worst thing that can happen outside your immediate family, because a team is like extended family. Those players are like brothers – maybe even closer – and to a coach, they’re like your sons. It’s a tough thing on all of us when one of them leaves.”

Davender grew up in Brooklyn, where he blossomed from playground star to McDonald’s All-American and eventually became a two-time All-Southeastern Conference selection at Kentucky in 1987 and 1988. He ranks fourth in program history in steals (191), eighth in assists (436) and 11th in points (1,637).

“He grew up in a tough neighborhood,” Hall remembers. “I went up to visit him and went to the park where he generally played, and it was one of those typical New York park atmospheres where you can play all day if you can win, and Ed did. It was about a two-block walk from his apartment to the park, and it was kind of a rough walk.

“There was a beer joint, then a liquor store and a pool room – then another beer joint, another liquor store and another pool room. But then one of the guys sitting on the steps said, ‘Hello, Joe B.,’ and I felt right at home. Everyone knew when a coach was in town to see Ed.”

Despite a tough environment in his formative years, Hall said Davender’s mother and grandmother “raised him to be a good young man.”

He was drafted by the Washington Bullets in 1988 but didn’t stick in the NBA. In 2010, he was sentenced to eight years in jail for his role in a UK basketball ticket scam, which defrauded victims out of tens of thousands of dollars. He was eligible for parole after serving 20 percent of that sentence.

That misstep is not how Davender’s old teammates and coach will remember him.

“He was a good kid,” Hall said. “He was a hard worker, had a great desire to be a winner, did everything you ever asked him to do and was no problem at all. This is a sad day.”

DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns took the NBA by storm. The three former Wildcats are among the top big men in the entire league, and could become the top three big men in just a few years.

Cousins, Davis and Towns were the only players in the NBA this season to average 18 points, 10 rebounds, and one blocked shot per game. They even combined to shoot 33.3 percent from the 3-point line on 405 attempts. That’s the offensive versatility that has many analysts ranking them at the top of their position.

Davis and Cousins are often talked about as top 15 NBA players, and Towns is well on his way.

Howell broke his C5 vertebrae in an accident last week, leaving him paralyzed.

“He’ll be in continued rehabilitation for a while,” his wife, Reanna said on Wednesday. “We hope that he is able to continue with therapy to get to where he needs to be. The more therapy he has, the better.”

Howell began his first day of rehab in Charlotte on Wednesday, and Reanna said that he’s upbeat and positive about the journey ahead. While paralysis is the initial diagnosis, the couple is hopeful that he’ll drastically improve.

Howell was one of only four McDonald’s All-Americans that picked USC and the third from Columbia. A standout at Lower Richland High, Howell scored 970 points for the Gamecocks from 2001-04, playing alongside brother Ivan Howell and helping USC advance to the 2004 NCAA tournament.

Rolando didn’t play in the tournament due to a fractured wrist that prematurely ended his college career. He still went on to a lengthy pro career playing across Europe and Asia.

Calipari voiced his support for the “Bluegrass Boys,” a UK alumni team that will compete this summer in a national event dubbed The Basketball Tournament. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/ex-cats/article80481042.html)

Quote
Five out of a possible 11 players have been named to the team: Marquis Teague, Perry Stevenson, Joe Crawford, Ramel Bradley and Kevin Galloway.

Former Wildcat Mark Krebs is the general manager of the Bluegrass Boys, which will be coached by former UK star Derek Anderson.

“They need to get the other guys together,” Calipari said. “What about Darius (Miller), DeAndre (Liggins), Josh (Harrellson). What about Doron (Lamb), Eloy (Vargas), some of my guys.”

The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team tournament, which starts July 9, and is open to anyone.

To qualify, a team must receive at least 200 fan votes and have seven players on the roster by June 1.

The grand prize is $2 million. One hundred fans of the winning team will split $200,000, according to the event’s website.

Bernard King, Dale Ellis and Allan Houston have jerseys hanging in the rafters at Thompson-Boling Arena. So that's a good place to start a Tennessee All-NBA team.

After that trio of icons, however, it gets tricky.

Tennessee has not exactly been a pipeline to the NBA...

King is the best player to wear a Tennessee uniform. He's also a slam dunk as the best ex-Vol to play in the NBA.

Ellis, a rookie in 1983-84, lasted an impressive 17 seasons. His 19,004 career points averaged out to 15.7 per game.

Houston's silky-smooth jump shot allowed him to last 12 seasons and score 14,551 points, an average of 17.3 per game. His 727 starts are the most among ex-Vols.

Ernie Grunfeld is the fourth UT player to have his jersey retired to the rafters. He played nine years in the NBA, but his star never shined as brightly as it did in college.
Of the 693 NBA games Grunfeld played, he started only 17.

A more productive choice at the NBA level is Tobias Harris, who, like Grunfeld, grew up hooping on Long Island, N.Y. Harris just finished his fifth season with a career average of 13.2 points. He already has 216 starts and appears likely to hang around for an extended stay.

Tom Boerwinkle gets the final spot in the starting five.

Boerwinkle, a 7-footer, was the fourth pick of the 1968 draft by the Chicago Bulls. He played 10 years, all for the Bulls, averaging 7.2 points and 9.0 rebounds a game.

His best two years he averaged a double-double and once collected 37 rebounds in a game. His high-scoring teammates like Bob Love and Chet Walker appreciated Boerwinkle's unselfishness and deft passing touch. Love has said he cried all day when he learned of Boerwinkle's 2013 death.

The sixth man would be point guard C.J. Watson, who has dished out 1,371 assists in nine (and counting) seasons while scoring 4,063 points. His longevity gives him the edge over Paul Walther and Dick Mehen...

Robert Horry loses NBA Finals record to LeBron James (http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2016/06/robert_horrys_3-point_record_f.html)

Quote
Cleveland forward LeBron James broke an NBA Finals record held by Robert Horry.

A prep star at Andalusia and a collegiate standout at Alabama, Horry held the NBA Finals career record by making 56 3-pointers in the championship series. James' two 3-point baskets on Thursday night lifted him one ahead of Horry.

In 16 NBA seasons, Horry averaged scoring 7.0 points per game, but he earned the nickname "Big Shot Bob" because of his penchant for sinking timely 3-pointers in postseason games.

James is playing in the NBA Finals for the seventh time, the same number of finals that Horry played in.

Horry played for seven NBA championship teams – the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995, the Los Angeles Lakers in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and the San Antonio Spurs in 2005 and 2007.

Two Mississippians have been selected to the USA Basketball Men's Select Team. Devin Booker of Moss Point and Rodney Hood of Meridian are two of 25 players chosen to be a part of the Select Team that will train with the U.S. Men's National Team during its training camp July 18-21 in Las Vegas.

Booker, who averaged 10 points per game in his only season at Kentucky, was selected 13th overall in the 2015 NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns and just completed his rookie season during which he averaged 13 points. He was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.

Hood, who played one season at Mississippi State before transferring to Duke, just finished his second year with the Utah Jazz. The 6-foot-8 shooting guard started all 79 of the games he played and averaged 14.5 points.

The team will be coached by five-time NBA champion and San Antonio Sports coach Gregg Popovich...

2016 USA Basketball Men's Select Team (SEC connections)

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Detroit Pistons

Willie Cauley-Stein, Sacramento Kings

Rodney Hood, Utah Jazz

Another petition seeks to bring Gerald Wallace back to Charlotte's NBA team to retire.

A standout at Childersburg High School and Alabama, Wallace spent 14 seasons in the NBA, including earning a spot in the 2010 All-Star Game while playing for Charlotte, then called the Bobcats, but now known as the Hornets.

The petition seeks "to bring back someone who spent their entire prime in the Charlotte area and gave us 110 percent every single game. He deserves to retire in Charlotte."

The idea to get Wallace a one-day contract to retire in Charlotte has 171 supporters.

Wallace did not play in the NBA during the 2015-16 season.

Top One Year Players for Mississippi State

Arnett Moultrie '11-12  1st Team All-SEC, 16.4 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 27th NBA pick
UTEP transfer left State after his junior season.  He was on the 76ers roster for two seasons and as of 2016 is playing in Puerto Rico.

Dontae’ Jones '96  Helped lead State to the Final Four with 18 ppg, scored 28 v. eventual NCAA champ and SEC regular season undefeated UK to lead MS to SEC Tournament win, 97 3-pointers is State's single season record, named to Bulldogs' All-Century Team, 21st NBA pick.

Rodney Hood '11-12  Avg. 10 ppg and was All-SEC freshman. Later was a star at Duke (All-ACC 2nd Team) transferring after the Stansbury firing and Renardo Sidney mess.

Malik Newman '15-16 April 2015: Ben Howland on Malik Newman and excitement in Starkville (http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/eye-on-college-basketball/25162330/qa-ben-howland-on-malik-newman-and-excitement-in-starkville)

Quote
I'm really excited obviously with the signing of Malik Newman --- that's a huge signing for our program. He's the highest ranked player in the history of the program to sign and then come play in Starkville... His father ['90's All-SEC Horatio Webster] played at Mississippi State and there was just a great love for the program...

I think the opportunity for him to come here and play point guard and focus on that position was big for him. We have a kid here --- I.J. Ready ---

He's definitely an NBA player. He's got a really bright future beyond the college level. He'll be an excellent NBA player. We want to get him to the point where we can have our team have a great season and we can help him have a great year.

Newman is transferring after averaging 11 ppg and failing to make the SEC All-Freshman team.

Comparison on players drafted from 2010 to present (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article84613172.html)

Quote
UK has had 25 players drafted in that time: 19 in the first round and 10 among the top-10 selections. Those 10 are John Wall (first) and DeMarcus Cousins (fifth) in 2010, Enes Kanter (third) and Brandon Knight (eighth) in 2011, Anthony Davis (first) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (second) in 2012, Nerlens Noel (sixth) in 2013, Julius Randle (seventh) in 2014 and Karl-Anthony Towns (first) and Willie Cauley-Stein (sixth) in 2015.

In that same time period, Duke and Kansas have each had 12 players drafted. Ten first-rounders for Duke, nine for Kansas. North Carolina has had seven players drafted (six in the first round) and Louisville has had five players drafted (two in the first round).

NBA Draft is a knockout experience  (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article84613172.html)

Quote
Former Kentucky star Rex Chapman’s NBA Draft experience included a heavyweight championship fight. The night before the 1988 draft, the league took Chapman and such likely picks that year as Danny Manning and Rik Smits to watch Mike Tyson fight Michael Spinks.

“When we got to our seats, the bell sounded,” Chapman said. “They came out. And the next thing we knew, it was over and we were leaving.”

Tyson knocked out Spinks 91 seconds into the first round.

The NBA Draft can be like Tyson-Spinks. A sense of anticipation, an anything-can-happen atmosphere and, if a player is lucky, a quick ending with his name called early.

When asked if he was uneasy or feeling on top of the world on draft night, ex-Cat Kenny Walker said, “All of the above, and then some. I was nervous. I was excited. It was almost every emotion you can feel.”


“Slept on the bus ride there,” Cauley-Stein told the Herald-Leader’s Anthony Crawford of his trip from his Manhattan hotel to Barclays Center in Brooklyn. “Half asleep during the whole ceremony till your name is called.”

Projected to be among the top 10 picks, Cauley-Stein was philosophical about his eventual destination.

“You thought you’re supposed to go fifth, and you end up going 10th,” he said of the draft’s fluid nature. “Well, the 10 might be the better option for you.”

The Sacramento Kings took Cauley-Stein with the sixth pick.

No such haze for Sam Bowie, who went to the 1984 NBA Draft assured that the Portland Trail Blazers would take him with the second pick of the first round.

“Not that it took away from the excitement and enthusiasm,” he said.

For Bowie, the 1984 Draft was the culmination of a long struggle of rehabilitation and re-invention. A stress fracture forced him to sit out two UK seasons, which would be an eternity in today’s one-and-done college “careers.”

“There were a lot of tears shed and a lot of prayers,” Bowie said of his draft-night celebration with family and friends. “Just thankfulness.”

Dan Issel, UK’s career scoring leader, found himself a pawn in the NBA’s competition with the American Basketball Association. The ABA’s Dallas Chaparrals called a friend of the Issel family to tell them it had the draft rights to Issel. The friend told the Chaparrals that Issel would only sign with one ABA team: the Kentucky Colonels.

The family friend “was contacted about a week later and told the Colonels were now holding my draft rights,” Issel said with a chuckle. He signed with the Colonels.

The NBA Draft in 1970? “I didn’t pay attention to it,” said Issel, who pointed out that the NBA finals were not even televised live in those long-ago days.

To go back in time even further, future Hall of Famers Frank Ramsey and Cliff Hagan did not know they had been the fifth and 21st picks in the 1953 NBA Draft.

“That’s a whole other era,” Hagan said. “The ice age, really.”

Former Minnesota coach and Western coach and All-American Clem Haskins related that he was helping his father, a sharecropper, in the tobacco fields when he got called to the house to be informed he was the third overall pick of the Chicago Bulls in 1967.

Alabama guard Retin Obasohan has been busy working out for pro teams. But it remains unlikely Obasohan will be among the 60 players selected on Thursday night, which would make the 2016 NBA Draft the seventh in a row without a player from an Alabama college.

The most recent Alabama college player picked in the NBA Draft was Robert Vaden, taken out of UAB by the Charlotte Bobcats with the 54th choice in 2009.

Prospects who played at Alabama high schools have been drafted since Vaden -- K.J. McDaniels in 2014 and DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe in 2010.

Alabama

Richard Hendrix is the most recent Alabama player to be selected in the NBA Draft, going to the Golden State Warriors in the second round in 2008. Hendrix is among 41 Alabama players who have been drafted, although he never played in the NBA. The most recent Alabama draft pick to play in the NBA is Jermareo Davidson, who also was a second-round pick of the Warriors, but in 2007. The soonest an Alabama player has been drafted is with the No. 2 pick, where the Los Angeles Clippers took Antonio McDyess in 1995.

Auburn

Jamison Brewer is the most recent Auburn player to be selected in the NBA Draft, going to the Indianapolis Pacers in the second round in 2001. Brewer is among 29 Auburn players who have been selected in the NBA Draft. The soonest an Auburn player has been drafted is at No. 4, where the Pacers took Chuck Person in 1986 and the New Jersey Nets took Chris Morris in 1988. Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley was the fifth player picked in the 1984 NBA Draft.

Cousins will play alongside Carmelo Anthony, Harrison Barnes, Jimmy Butler, DeMar DeRozan, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Draymond Green, Kyrie Irving, (A&M alum) DeAndre Jordan, Kyle Lowry and Klay Thompson.

Ten former Kentucky players have earned a gold medal, with Anthony Davis capturing the most recent in 2012. Davis was a finalist this season, but removed his name from contention as he recovers from offseason surgery, as did John Wall.

The U.S. will start training for the Olympics in Las Vegas and will compete against the USA Men’s Select Team, which features former Wildcats Devin Booker, Willie Cauley-Stein and Julius Randle.

LEGENDS: The Lost Year of Pistol Pete (http://www.tigerrag.com/legends-the-lost-year-of-pistol-pete)

Quote
Freshmen at LSU in the fall of 1966 were the lowest of the low. The upperclassmen forced them to buzz their heads, and the only cover for their bad haircuts were ill-fitting beanies, whose tiny bills, when upturned, revealed their last names sandwiched between the words “Dawg” and “Sir” – an accessory this particular Dawg had no interest in donning at the moment.

Instead, he slid on his sunglasses and leaned against his Volkswagen, parked at the top of the small hill overseeing the north side of Tiger Stadium, just across the street from the basketball offices in the Gym Armory. When the young lady was near enough, he leaned against the car and called out to her.

“Hello, Paula.”

Shocked, she looked up.

“Oh, hi. Hi. Do I know you?”

Pulling his glasses back, he replied: “I’m Pete Maravich.”

Her face remained unchanged.

“Aren’t you a track star or something?” she asked, before continuing to class and leaving her would-be suitor in the dust...

France outlasted the Canadians, 83-74, in the final of the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament Sunday in the Philippines.

Canada was denied its first bid since 2000. Coincidentally, Canada Basketball General Manager Steve Nash was on that 2000 Canada team, which was eliminated from medal contention in the quarterfinals by France. (https://www.sny.tv/college-recruiting/news/canada-falls-to-france-at-olympic-qualifying-final-out-for-rio/189050572)

Quote
Canada played the Olympic Qualifying Tournament missing a host of key pieces, including Minnesota Timberwolves rookie guard Jamal Murray.

Long-viewed as a key piece of the future of the Canadian National Team, Murray played with the Senior National Team last summer at the Pan American Games in Toronto. He was often-brilliant,specifically in the semifinals when he roasted the United States for 22 points across the fourth quarter and overtime of a 111-108 win.

Murray was added to Canada's training camp roster for FIBA Americas, but could not play due to responsibilities at Kentucky. Canada blew a seven-point fourth quarter lead to Venezuela in a FIBA Americas semifinal last September, and had to go through qualifying.

Quote
Former UK point guard Ramel Bradley led the short-handed Bluegrass Boys with 19 points and five rebounds in 32 minutes. With just seven players, fatigue was a factor down the stretch.

Former UK guard Kevin Galloway added 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Perry Stevenson had 11 points, nine rebounds and five blocked shots.

Bluegrass Boys Coach and former Kentucky standout Derek Anderson emphasized a mismatch his team was not exploiting. Pointing to 5-foot-4 Underdawgs guard Anthony Sampson, who played in college at Freed-Hardman University, Anderson begged ex-Cat Joe Crawford to “post up the little guy.”

Underdawgs General Manager Darius DeBerry said of the upset, “We wanted to put Jackson on the map. This means a lot for Jackson, Tenn.”

Quote
Former Missouri standout has had to dial back his typical training regimen dramatically to give his body time to heal after a knee injury and other ailments limited him to 26 regular-season games in his first season after signing a four-year, $60 million contract with Toronto last offseason.

He’ll still be on the move away from the court in July, having already flown to Las Vegas to take in part of the NBA’s Summer League and with visits to Toronto, for a few public appearances, and Birmingham, Ala., for one of his Next Level Camps on the docket.

Carroll is also spending Monday through Wednesday of this week in Columbia hosting another one of those camps at Tolton. He’s scheduled to do a meet-and-greet with fans at Shiloh Bar & Grill from 7-9 p.m. on Monday.

“They wanted me to first take a month off as soon as the season was over, let my knee get fully healed,” Carroll said in a phone interview. “I just started rehab two weeks ago, and I’ll start actually” playing “basketball probably in the beginning of August.”

He added: “It’s been very hard, because I’m used to just working. I’m a workhorse. Coming from playing with my uncle,” Coach Mike Anderson, “that’s all we preach.”

Former Auburn University All-SEC guard K.T. Harrell is fresh off his first season as a professional after spending the year playing for Akhisar Belediye of the Turkish Basketball Second League in Manisa, Turkey.

Harrell admits that naturally, he was a bit nervous during his first few weeks overseas — being on his own in an unfamiliar environment so far away from home — and acknowledges that the transition was challenging.

“I accomplished a lot of the goals I set out to do being one of the top scorers [in my league] and being considered one of the best players on my team,” Harrell said. “Some setbacks within the team led to our season not really going as well as we planned, but all in all, as an individual in my first year I think I did well for myself.”

His nervousness didn’t come without warrant. As of late, the country has been in the news for all the wrong reasons...

Harrell recently completed his second NBA Summer League in Las Vegas with the New Orleans Pelicans. Last year, he played in the event with the Philadelphia 76ers. Harrell said that although he didn’t get quite as much playing time this time around, the experience was still one to remember.

With NBA teams focusing less on winning and more on the development of their top players during summer league play, sometimes, it’s difficult for players like Harrell to get the visibility need to make a lasting impression on the coaches.

“The ideal situation is being able to play somewhere against the best competition,” Harrell said. “As a competitor, you always want to play against the best. And of course the NBA is the highest level of competition, but if not in the NBA, I want to be able to play against some of the highest competition overseas and getting paid big money to do it.”

Former Kentucky star DeMarcus Cousins is training with Team USA for the Olympic Games next month in Brazil and he’s also living a dream that doesn’t involve winning a gold medal.

Cousins has claimed Carmelo Anthony as his favorite player for years and now he’s not only getting to play alongside Anthony, he’s also learning from him off the court as Jason Jones from the Sacramento Bee reported.

“I enjoy being around him,” Cousins told Jones. “He’s got so so much experience in this game. It’s well known that I’ve been a Melo fan my whole life. Just to be able to work with him daily is going to help me become a better player. I’m excited for it.”

“I’m getting a chance to really get to know him as a person – forget about basketball,” Anthony told the Sacramento Bee. “To be honest, I think there’s a big misconception about DeMarcus. I think sometimes, it’s situational things. Does he need to relax a little bit sometimes? I told him that. Over the years, I’ve seen him get better and better with that. We all kind of go through that.”

Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski also says he has seen growth in Cousins since they last worked together. He credited Cousins for investing more on the defensive end and in the team as the Olympics approach.

Former Auburn star and NBA legend Charles Barkley will finally get his own TV show (https://www.seccountry.com/auburn/charles-barkley-to-get-his-own-tv-show-called-the-race-card)

Quote
Charles Barkley wants to bust up the echo chamber mentality that so often has people retreating to corners of the like-minded, where views are reinforced and ideas are distorted into angry, unexamined groupthink conclusions. Each week, Barkley will take on the rapidly calcifying positions around today’s hot-button topics. He will seek out the sharpest and most varied viewpoints from today’s cultural leaders and tastemakers. He will then challenge and probe those ideas, even trying them out on himself.

He retired from the game in 2000 and has been a part of the TNT studio team covering the NBA.

“We as Americans never discuss the issue of race in this country and how it impacts everything in our lives until something bad happens,” Barkley said in the press release. “I see this project as a way to talk about race, class and cultural differences and challenge everyone’s status quo.”

Corey Brewer was part of the best teams in Florida basketball history — back-to-back national title squads in 2006 and 2007

Next Act: Giving Back (http://brockway.blogs.gatorsports.com/13505/next-act-brewer-04s-giving-back)

Quote
Brewer is back in Gainesville this week for his seventh annual Back 2 Back Youth Basketball camp, with proceeds in the name of the Corey Brewer Fight Diabetes Fund going toward UF’s Shands Hospital.

Brewer is not the only one putting his name and NBA millions to good use. Former Gator center Joakim Noah has started the Noah’s Arc Foundation, with programs designed in art and sports to help at-risk youth in urban communities. And former Gator forward Al Horford has been involved in a number of charities in his pro career, including Basketball Without Borders, the NBAs Fight Against Aids, the Make a Wish.

“It’s always the right thing to do, to give back to the community,” Brewer said. “For me, I love to do camps, I come in here in Gainesville, I do a camp at home in Portland, Tenn., you have to give back. We’re all very blessed, just to have the opportunity to be able to give back is very important.”

For Brewer, the diabetes cause is personal. Both of his parents were diagnosed with diabetes when he was young. His father passed away from complications due to diabetes.

“It’s a cause that hits home to me,” Brewer said. “It’s very important.”

Brewer, who turned 30 last March, is entering his 10th NBA and third with the Houston Rockets. He’s looking forward to playing in new coach Mike D’Antoni’s up-tempo system.

“It suits me a lot better,” Brewer said. “Last year was a struggle for me, once Coach (Kevin) McHale got fired we kinda slowed it down. So now I feel like, it will be a good to play a lot faster with Coach D’Antoni.”

Brewer, who averaged 7.2 points and 2.4 rebounds last season, is transitioning from second or third scoring option into a veteran leadership role with the Rockets.

He also said that he wouldn’t take the same approach out of respect for his family members who have been in the military and law enforcement.

“I don’t know Colin, but again, to each his own,” O’Neal said. “I don’t really have a say on it, but I would never do that. My father was a military man, and you know, he protected this country.

Quote
After breaking UK legend Kyle Macy’s record for most assists in a debut game with 12, we all knew the spotlight would be on De’Aaron Fox following the game.

When asked about the record, he was impressed, but honestly had no idea how massive the feat actually was. In fact, he didn’t even know the guy who held the record in the first place.

Fox said, “I looked at the assist total, and I honestly didn’t even know. They told me I broke the record for debut assists, so it’s cool, it happened. But I just gotta move on to the next game. I read it was from like 1970-something. I don’t know who it was.”

Larry Vaught: “Kyle Macy, you ever heard of him?”

“No, I honestly haven’t… (laughs)”

Vaught: “He was pretty good, you should check out his numbers.”

Move over Chris Mills, whose 19 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists on Dec. 27, 1988 against Austin Peay stood all alone in the program’s record book for a long, long time.

“That’s ridiculous, just how hard it is for guys to get triple-doubles,” said Fox, who made it look rather easy by achieving the feat in just his seventh college game. “The players that have come through here all the years they won (eight) national championships. Even the years (John Calipari) has been here and the players he’s had, it’s just because of how hard it is.

“And I did it. I can’t do anything but thank my teammates, my coaches and God.”

Five players in Calipari’s first seven seasons came tantalizingly close to a triple-double. John Wall needed two more assists against Mississippi State in 2010. Anthony Davis needed two more blocks against St. John’s in 2011. Nerlens Noel needed three more blocks (or four more steals) on his stat-stuffing day against Texas A&M in 2013.

Willie Cauley-Stein came up one block and two boards shy of a triple-double against Providence in 2013 and 5-foot-9 point guard Tyler Ulis, remarkably, got enough rebounds but was two assists away against Auburn back in January.

“There’s a lot of stuff that you thought – like a No. 1 pick in the draft – you would’ve thought Kentucky has had it,” Calipari said. After none before him, Kentucky has had three No. 1 picks since 2010: Wall, Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns. Now, finally, the program’s second triple-double.

“He was on his way to that at halftime,” Devils coach Bob Hurley said. “We pointed that out, that we had nine defensive rebounds at halftime and I think he had eight..."

VEGAS – The funny thing about Malik Monk’s heroic 3-pointer is that he was supposed to drive the ball. Get to the rim, get fouled if you can. Those were the orders.

“But I was hot,” Monk said, “so I didn’t.”

Sixth-ranked Kentucky trailed seventh-ranked North Carolina by just two points with less than 30 seconds to go Saturday in what turned out to be the best college basketball game of the season so far. The Wildcats didn’t need a three, but Monk wanted one.

“He threw it, bang, it went in,” said coach John Calipari, who’d commanded him to do exactly the opposite. “Great shot, kid.”

Monk’s final bucket, with 22 seconds remaining, gave him a UK freshman-record 47 points and delivered a thrilling, 103-100 victory for Kentucky on Saturday in the CBS Sports Classic.

Malik Monk's 47 points are second-most ever against North Carolina. Only Dick Groat [Pittsburgh Pirates] of Duke (48 points) in 1952 scored more on the Heels.

All-Decade Teams per School for what was argubly one of the best SEC decades:
The 2000's

Waived by the Denver Nuggets on Friday, forward Alonzo Gee made a quick return to the NBA - with the same team that had let him go.

Gee signed a 10-day contract with the Nuggets on Sunday.

Why did Denver release Gee only to bring him right back?

On Tuesday, Gee's $1,145,294 contract was to become fully guaranteed. A 10-day contract pays about $77,000.

Gee will get a trip to London out of his 10-day status.

"We love Alonzo," Nuggets coach Michael Malone told the Denver Post when Gee was released. "He was terrific. So that move by no means was an indication of how we feel about him. The front office made a move that going forward gives us flexibility."

At the time of his release, Gee had played in one of Denver's previous 11 games...

Gee played at Alabama from the 2005-06 through the 2008-09 seasons. He ranks 13thin points and 19th in rebounds in Crimson Tide history.

Cousins reportedly intends to sign “a massive, max-money extension, estimated at roughly $207 million during the offseason that will keep the big man in a Kings uniform long-term,” according to CSN Calilfornia’s James Ham. To put that in perspective, that would be the richest contract in NBA history if signed today.

Eleven days after acquiring Williams from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade the guard to the Denver Nuggets, who are expected to waive Williams.

Williams has not played in the NBA this season.

So what really got traded in the deal?

Williams' contract.

In the final season of a two-year deal that he signed with the Cavs, Williams is owed $2,194,500 salary for 2016-17.

The NBA has a salary cap of $94.1 million, and any team that reaches $113.3 million in spending is subject to a penalty called the luxury tax. But the NBA also has a salary-cap floor. A team that doesn't spend at least $84.7 million also incurs penalties.

The Nuggets are almost $10 million away from the floor. Putting Williams' contract on the books, paying off the remainder of his contract and releasing him helps Denver get closer to the floor without using a roster spot.

In his 818 NBA games, Williams has averaged 13.2 points and 4.9 assists.

Last season, Williams joined Jason Caffey and Robert Horry as former Alabama players who played on NBA championship teams.

Vice Sports finally breaks down Malik Monk and shows that there have been very few players like him in the last decade http://kentuckysportsradio.com/basketball-2/malik-monk-is-breaking-the-mold-for-elite-scoring-guards/ …

Quote
Over the last decade-plus of draft prospects—hundreds and hundreds of players—the Kentucky shooting guard stands out as genuinely unique. He’s a volcanic offensive force, seemingly put on this Earth to get buckets, a 6-foot-3 scorer averaging 22.4 points per game on a 63 percent true-shooting percentage, one of five high-major guards to put up such numbers in the last 25 years of college hoops.

And stats don’t tell the whole story. I’ve watched a lot of college basketball, and I’ve never seen a player so prone to preposterous, NBA Jam-style he’s-on-fire shooting stretches. For example, in Tuesday night’s Kentucky win over Georgia, he scored 31 points … in the second half (and overtime)...

Monk has the best catch-and-shoot and the off-the-dribble jumper numbers of anyone on the list. Absurdly, Monk has been better according to Synergy when guarded in catch-and-shoot situations than unguarded, hitting at a 1.53 point-per-shot clip guarded versus 1.15 pps unguarded. That 1.53 pps guarded shot clip is the second-best among high-major players who have taken a similar volume of shots in just over a decade.

If Monk had other NBA-level skills that seemed likely to translate beyond “pure bucket getter,” none of this would be an issue. There are plenty of league players who bring value even when their shots waver. But when you’re an undersized two guard who doesn’t get to the rim, doesn’t create for others, and doesn’t defend? You better be able to put the ball in the basket.

    UCLA: 24 points, 4/8 3FG

Jones is getting 21.5 points and 8.9 rebounds per game for the Red Claws. Poythress is getting 18.9 poits and 7.9 rebounds per game for the Mad Ants.

Johnson is averaging 18.4 points and 8.4 rebounds per game this season, and O’Bryant is currently with the Denver Nuggets after signing a second 10-day contract on Monday.

Raptors 905 coach Jerry Stackhouse will be the head coach of the Eastern Conference, with former Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall on his staff as an assistant.

Coby Karl, son of former NBA coach George Karl, will coach the West.

Delk was an SEC Player of the Year, All-American and Final Four Most Outstanding Player for the Wildcats. He still owns the school record for career 3-pointers and ranks fifth on the all-time scoring list, second in steals.

So here’s a question he is qualified to answer: Which four players belong on the Mount Rushmore of Kentucky basketball?

“Of course you gotta have Dan Issel up there. I’m gonna put Kenny Walker. Can’t leave off the Goose (Jack Givens). And I have to put AD up there. I like Anthony Davis. If it was five, I’d probably put myself, but those are the four guys that I would have to put up there.”

Issel, Walker and Givens rank 1, 2 and 3 on the school’s career scoring list — Issel also has the record for rebounds — and all of their jerseys are retired. Each of them was a consensus All-American, while Davis was consensus National Player of the Year.

Davis also won Freshman of the Year, National Defensive Player of the Year and was Final Four Most Outstanding Player for the 2012 NCAA title team. He set a national freshman record for blocked shots. All of that is why Delk — the last UK player to have his jersey retired — would like to see rules bent to get Davis into Rupp Arena’s rafters alongside the others.

“AD won every accolade that you could possibly win. As a freshman,” Delk said. “So there’s a special place for him up there. And I know you have to be a graduate and all that kind of stuff to get your jersey retired — five years (after being) inducted into the (UK) Hall of Fame — but Anthony Davis did something that no other player in history will probably do.”

J.J. Frazier woke up Saturday morning feeling sick. When he met up with an athletic trainer, they thought he had the flu. Georgia’s health center was closed, so one of the best players in Georgia basketball history, statistically speaking at least, was taken to a local urgent care facility.

“A lot of times you play your best game when you’re sick,” head coach Mark Fox said.

There are dwindling chances for people to see one of the more special players in Georgia history. He’s going out very loudly: Twenty-nine points on Saturday night, including the game-winning free throws with 1.6 seconds left, rescuing Georgia from what would have been a devastating loss to woeful LSU. Instead it kept its postseason hopes alive with an 82-80 win.

Frazier has now scored 36, 28 and 29 points in the three games since the team’s other star, Yante Maten, went out with a sprained knee. (The 36 points was against Kentucky, when Maten was injured 95 seconds into the game.)

Perspective: Frazier was a lightly-regarded, 5-foot-10 recruit out of south Georgia four years ago. He has now statistically become one of the better players in school history, ranking eighth all-time in scoring, fifth in assists, and in the top 10 in a plethora of other categories.

From immortal to quite mortal, Kentucky's Unforgettables face midlife challenges 25 years after their greatest moment (http://sports.yahoo.com/news/from-immortal-to-quite-mortal-kentuckys-unforgettables-encounter-midlife-challenges-25-years-after-their-greatest-moment-173201004.html)

Quote
North Carolina and Villanova came up with a reasonable facsimile of the endgame shot-making with the national championship on the line. But even that classic carried less sustained offensive artistry, less emotional cargo and less karmic context than Duke 104, Kentucky 103.

Especially for the losing side. In particular, for the Kentucky senior class known as “The Unforgettables”: John Pelphrey, Sean Woods, Deron Feldhaus and Richie Farmer.

A quarter century later, that quartet of overachieving Wildcats is as ennobled in defeat as the Blue Devils were celebrated in victory.

Richie Farmer returned the phone call quickly, friendly as ever, sounding happy to renew an old acquaintance. The call was an invitation to relive some of his glory days, one 25-year-old basketball game in particular. For Farmer, talking about the past is much easier than discussing the present.

When he heard the standard small-talk question – “How you doing?” – he laughed mirthlessly.

“Oh,” he said, in his familiar Appalachian twang, “I’m hangin’ in there.”

One of the most adored athletes to ever shoot an orange ball through a hoop in basketball-obsessed Kentucky is, in fact, struggling to hang in there. He filed for bankruptcy last year, several months after being released from federal prison, and the details of his filing were grim: Farmer stated that he was getting by on $194 a month in food stamps, plus assistance from his parents. He was more than $360,000 in debt.

His No. 32 jersey hangs in the rafters of Rupp Arena, but for 20 months Farmer was No. 16226-032 in the federal penal system in West Virginia after pleading guilty to misappropriating public funds while the Kentucky state agriculture commissioner...

 – – – – – –
College basketball coaches are permanently busy, but Alabama assistant John Pelphrey always returns the calls. Even this time of year. Even when he knows what topic is coming to thump him upside his redheaded noggin yet again.

“I have a hard time appreciating it,” Pelphrey said. “I appreciate playing at Kentucky, being in the NCAA tournament and being coached by that guy. I appreciate the relationship with the team and the fans. But the game is a moment in time where we never get to put the jersey on again. And it wasn’t just any jersey; it was a special, special piece of cloth.”

It’s risky to identify anyone as the quintessential in-state Kentucky basketball player, but Pelphrey would make a good choice. All he ever wanted to do was be a Wildcat.

Reared in Paintsville, another mountain town in the eastern part of the state, the annual family vacation was to the state tournament. When he became good enough to be a standout at Paintsville High, he could dare to dream of actually getting the attention of the Kentucky coaches. The possibility drove him every day.

“My senior year I was up at 5:30, running through town at 6, challenging myself that if you get a chance, you’ve got to be ready for it,” Pelphrey said. “I went to Senior Day [in 1986], and when you experience that you become consumed by it. Just give me a chance.”

Eddie Sutton gave Pelphrey a chance, but not much of one. He was redshirted his first season and barely played his second. By the time Pitino got him, Pelphrey was a 21-year-old who had scored 38 career points.

By the time Pitino was finished with him, Pelphrey had scored 1,257 points and been part of 65 victories in three seasons. This at a time when many thought the depleted Wildcats would be lucky to win 10 a year.

If any Unforgettable was destined for coaching, Pelphrey was it. He often spent time his senior year going over film in the office of a young assistant coach – a guy named Billy Donovan. After a brief stint with Eddie Sutton, Pelphrey went to work for Donovan and eventually became the head coach at South Alabama in 2002.

That was a rebuilding job, but Pelphrey got it done – he won 20 games in his fifth and sixth seasons, advancing to the NCAA tournament in year five. That led him to Arkansas in 2007-08 to replace Stan Heath...

Sure, Jimmy Butler was clutch with 15 fourth quarter points and the clinching free throws and Robin Lopez was dominant with 11 rebounds, eight offensive in the Bulls 53-36 rebounding advantage. But it was a Bulls 35-22 bench edge led by Portis’ eight for 10 shooting and 19 points that proved decisive.

"I’ve always been confident. It helps at the same time I knew the circumstances of what my team needed from me. I went out there and played my basketball game; I took the shots that came to me tonight.”

Bobby Portis

Only loss of short, 39 game college career saw Harrison take three consecutive 30 second shot violations to set up twin rather than get big man the ball on the block.  Now he's messing with this guy:

BIG3 league allows former LSU star Chris Jackson to return to scene of the sublime (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article150383937.html)

Quote
Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf has not been in Rupp Arena since he scored 41 points against Kentucky on Feb. 15, 1990. Then he was known as Chris Jackson, a phenomenally talented guard for LSU.

Abdul-Rauf returns to Rupp Arena on Aug. 6 as part of a touring three-on-three league.

He has faint memories of a game that was 27 years, a conversion to Islam and a name change ago. By contrast, the game Kentucky won 100-95 is a lasting memory for those UK fans who saw it. It signaled that Rick Pitino’s embryonic rebuilding effort could achieve great things. After all, a shorthanded and under-sized UK team defeated an LSU team featuring not only Abdul-Rauf (an all-SEC player), but freshman giants Shaquille O’Neal (14 points, 21 rebounds against UK that game) and Stanley Roberts (13 points, 13 rebounds).

And Kentucky did not catch LSU unaware. To borrow from current UK Coach John Calipari, Abdul-Rauf said LSU approached the game with a Super Bowl-like anticipation.

“Granted, you’re trying to come at everybody you play against,” he said last week. “But it’s even more special, and it’s hard not to get up for a game with that many daggone people yelling and screaming.”

In four career games against Kentucky, Abdul-Rauf averaged 32.5 points.

A call to wish Hall of Famer Frank Ramsey a happy 86th birthday on Thursday found him at work as president of the Dixon Bank. (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article161598363.html)

Quote
“I don’t know what the hell I’d do if I wasn’t working,” Ramsey said. “When you’re my age, you look forward to going to work.”

Ramsey played for UK’s 1951 national championship team and the only unbeaten team in program history (1953-54). He cited good genes as a reason for his longevity. His mother lived until the age of 101, he said. Except for his father, who died at 72, other relatives lived into their 80s and 90s.

“I hope I have it in my genes,” he said, “but, hey, I don’t make any long-range plans.”

Would know.

Quote
“I definitely think we would win,” Randle said Saturday at his UK basketball camp. “I don’t think it would really be a challenge. I think Kentucky just has too many stars that come out of here, too many good players. I’m never gonna say I’m gonna lose.”

Randle could add depth to the starting five and players like DeMarcus Cousins, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Devin Booker, Jamal Murray, Rajon Rondo, Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Patrick Patterson, Trey Lyles, De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk would all be available.

The idea would be to pit a Kentucky alumni squad against a current NBA super team in an exhibition game. Who wouldn’t want to watch?

While they all played at UK and could've played together, few if any did play together.

Former Kentucky star Tayshaun Prince is going to be named special assistant to Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace.

Prince played 14 seasons in the pros, capturing an NBA championship with the Detroit Pistons in 2004. Prince has some built-in familiarity with the Grizzlies, having played for the franchise from 2013-2015.

While at Kentucky, Prince was the SEC Player of the Year (2001), Second-Team All-American (2001) and two-time First Team All-SEC selection (2001, 2002).

The four-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team member should be a seamless fit into the Grizzlies’ grit n’ grind culture.

Former UK star Jack Givens has surgery after injury in Alumni Charity Game (http://www.kentucky.com/sports/college/kentucky-sports/uk-basketball-men/article170132632.html)

Quote
Jack “Goose” Givens tore an Achilles tendon while playing in the Alumni Charity Game in Rupp Arena on Friday night. He underwent surgery Tuesday.

Givens, who turns 61 on Sept. 21, scored 41 points in UK’s 94-88 victory over Duke in the 1978 national championship game.

Givens tore his right Achilles tendon early in the Alumni Charity Game.

“The most disappointing thing is I wasn’t even tired yet,” he said after the outpatient surgery. “I wish they’d given me enough time to wear myself out. Shoot, I was feeling good.”

Givens said the injury came after he made a shot and started to turn around to go back on defense.

“I guess my memory got the better of me and started telling me I was able to do some things that my old body didn’t agree with,” Givens said.

The game, which also featured such former UK players as Kyle Macy, Kevin Grevey and Kenny Walker, was part of a fundraiser for various charities.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported that sources told ESPN the two sides are nearing a 4-year, $42 million deal.

Richardson, taken in the second round with the No. 40 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, saw a significant bump in playing time with the Heat after one year with the franchise.

6-foot-6, 200-pound Edmond, Okla. native played four seasons in Tennessee and stood out as a senior. In 2014-15, Richardson started all 32 games and led the Vols in nearly every major statistical category: scoring (16.0 PPG), FG pct (46.1), FT pct (<80), APG (3.6), SPG (2.1) and minutes played (36.3).

That campaign earned him All-SEC First Team and SEC All-Defensive Team honors.

Ole Miss

Justin Reed SF, scored 472 points in 3 NBA seasons with his second season his most productive. Reed as a freshman helped Ole Miss make their only Sweet Sixteen appearance as a freshman. He made one of the All-SEC teams each of his four seasons in Oxford. He is currently battling spinal cancer.

Ansu Sesay SF, scored 401 points in 4 NBA seasons with his third season his most productive. Sesay was the SEC's POY in 1998 the year Ole Miss was 4-seed in the NCAA-T and had beaten eventual national champ UK in Lexington. Sesay missed a FT that set up Bryce Drew's buzzer beater upset win for Valpo.

College basketball PBP gradually began to pronounce his last name the way his family intended.  By the end of the season, some basketball analysts were pronouncing the ABA all-time leading scorer and Hall of Famer, Louie Dampier's surname the same way as Erick's (accent on second syllable).

Lawrence Roberts PF, averaged 3.8 and 3.6 in 87 NBA games across two seasons. He is currently playing in Turkey. He was second round, 55th overall draft selection in 2005.

Roberts recorded State's first triple double (points, rebounds, and assists) in a non-conference game while wearing a mask to protect a broken nose.

Arnett Moutrie  PF, UTEP transfer played 59 NBA games in two seasons ending in 2014.

Jarvis Varnado C, State's all-time shot blocker played 37 games in two NBA seasons ending in 2014.

Chuck Person suspended without pay following arrest; university 'saddened, angry'
(https://pbs.twimg.com/card_img/912730311091527681/2qIdUkZq?format=jpg&name=600x314) (https://twitter.com/aldotcomSports/status/912780094934003712)

Quote
Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person was suspended without pay, effective immediately, the university announced Tuesday afternoon. The suspension comes following Person's arrest after facing six federal charges, including corruption, stemming from an FBI investigation into NCAA corruption.

"This morning's news is shocking," the university said in a statement released Tuesday that was also posted to president Steven Leath's Twitter account. "We are saddened, angry and disappointed.... We are committed to playing by the rules, and that's what we expect from our coaches. In the meantime, Auburn is working closely with law enforcement, and we will help them in their investigation in any way we can."

Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl was previously scheduled to meet with the media on Wednesday to discuss the start of practice, which begins Friday, but that has since been canceled in wake of the Person news.

Multiple university officials confirmed to AL.com on Tuesday night a report by 247Sports that the school has hired Birmingham law firm Lightfoot, Franklin and White to conduct an internal review of the men's basketball program. That law firm is the same one hired by Auburn president Steven Leath last month to conduct an extensive review of the school's softball program in wake of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse under former coach Clint Myers and associate head coach Corey Myers.

Person has been on Pearl's staff at Auburn since 2014, joining the program after a stint as the associate head coach for the Jeonju KCC Egis in the Korean Basketball League. He was promoted to Auburn's associate head coach in May 2015 after spending his first season as an assistant coach.

A former All-American, Person is Auburn's all-time leading scorer with 2,311 career points and is the third-leading rebounder in program history. He led the program to within one game of the Final Four in 1986, and following a 27-year career as a player, assistant coach and front office executive in the NBA, Person returned to Auburn to be part of Pearl's staff.

Person has been known for his prowess on the recruiting trail.

College basketball players are unpaid, but that doesn't mean they don't have value. Somebody had to cash in, and that somebody, according to the FBI, was Chuck Person.

Person tried to use his position and influence to allegedly defraud the university that helped make him a legend. In their complaint, federal prosecutors described Person as a sleazy predator of his sport, and arrested him on charges of bribery, corruption and fraud. The FBI, using a cooperating witness trying to beat down his own federal crimes, pinched Person with an undercover investigation that spanned from Auburn to New York.

The whole scheme started with Birmingham native Rashan Michel, a former NBA referee who now specializes in tailoring bespoke suits for professional athletes. Michel was approached by the FBI's cooperating witness and told the witness, a financial manager, that college basketball coaches would be willing to accept bribes in exchange for funneling future NBA players to the financial manager's practice. Michel, the suit maker, told the FBI's cooperating witness "specifically about a particular coach" at Auburn whom he "knew would agree to do so."

That coach was Person, who ended up accepting more than $90,000 in bribes over a 10-month period.

It was enough to level an avalanche of evidence upon Person's head, and all but buried his lofty position as one of the greatest basketball players to come out of Alabama.

"Today's arrests should serve as a warning to others choosing to conduct business this way in the world of college athletics," said Bill Swinney, the New York FBI assistant director. "We have your playbook."

Auburn associate head coach Chuck Person is facing six federal charges that include bribery and conspiracy stemming from a widespread FBI investigation into the corruption of college basketball.

Person, Auburn's all-time leading scorer, was one of 10 people arrested early Tuesday as part of the years-long investigation that was covert until Tuesday morning. He is charged with bribery conspiracy, solicitation of bribes and gratuities, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and travel act conspiracy.

If convicted of all six charges, Person could face a maximum sentence of 80 years. It's a sentence that eight of the 10 arrested on Tuesday could face, while the other two -- Christian Dawkins and Munish Sood -- face a maximum of 200 years in prison.

Although the figure seems lofty given the crimes alleged to be committed, odds are that Person won't face a sentence nearly as steep if he is convicted on all six counts.

"(It's) about as likely as me being named as Chuck Person's successor as assistant basketball coach at Auburn," said Barry Pollack...

NBA is back at it, which, of course, means a steady diet of Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley

The former NBA stars - and SEC players - remind us that college football is never far from our thoughts

Quote
During halftime of the Golden State-Houston game, the NBA analyst were bantering back and forth and debating a number of points.

Barkley called O'Neal's point "stupid."

O'Neal's reply?

"Stupid like Auburn losing a 20-7 lead?"

Barkley played at Auburn from 1981-84, while O'Neal starred at LSU from 1989-92.
