In town for Saturday night’s New Orleans-Washington preseason game at Rupp Arena, former John Calipari stars John Wall, Darius Miller, Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans were on hand Saturday morning after their teams’ respective shoot-arounds to talk about Coach Cal, Big Blue Madness and this year’s UK team.
Big Blue Madness organizers go to great lengths to make sure plans for Kentucky’s first open men’s and women’s basketball practice stay quiet, and rightfully so. In 2013, with Madness anticipation at an all-time high, players are following suit when it comes to the dance moves they’ll break out when introduced to the capacity crowd.
It’s been barely a month since John Calipari’s family reunion in early September for the UK Alumni Charity Game, but four more of Coach Cal’s “sons” will be in town Saturday for a preseason exhibition game.
I know not everyone likes Grantland and its style of writing, but if you’re like me and can’t get enough of it, not to mention you’re a Kentucky fan, do yourself a favor and read Chris Ryan’s and Andrew Sharp’s story on John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins.
John Calipari previews the season in an in-depth Q and A with local media members.
On the same day he officially received a maximum contract extension of $62 million over four years, former Coach Cal star and Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins announced he will donate $1 million of his worth to charities aiding local families in need.
The Sacramento Bee is reporting that Cousins has reached an agreement with the Sacramento Kings on a four-year, $62 million maximum contract extension. The deal reportedly goes into effect for the 2014-15 season.
Harrison notched 22 points and a career-high seven rebounds in the win over Eastern Michigan and a career-high four assists Sunday night at the Barclays Center against Providence.
