    By LARRY VAUGHT Adding a player like 7-3 Bol Bol to any team’s roster and that team is going to be better — a lot better.

    By LARRY VAUGHT No one was giving Southeastern Conference basketball a lot of respect last year until the SEC put three teams — South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky — in the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. That was redemption for a league that has taken hits in recent years for a lack of quality teams to challenge Kentucky. This season the SEC has the nation’s top freshman, Michael Porter Jr. of Missouri. It has several high profile transfer players who sat out las...

    By LARRY VAUGHT Charles Bassey, one of the top-ranked players in the 2019 class, is not one to worry about who is recruiting him — or who is not. The 6-10 Bassey — who has a 7-5 wingspan — has made one minor concession, though, to keeping up more with what is going on around him. He’s now got an active Twitter account (@charles_bassey_). “Before I was just concentrating on other things. I am adjusting well now, so I have time for Twitter. Everybod...

    By LARRY VAUGHT Kentucky basketball is a tradition that is often passed down from generation to generation. Parents enjoy UK basketball with their children — and then their grandchildren. Those grandchildren eventually start the cycle again. That’s why a new “children’s” book — “The Unforgettable Fairy Tale” by Temple Stites with illustrations by Chris Hohl — could make a perfect Christmas gift. Actually, I’m not sure it is...

    By LARRY VAUGHT It was no coincidence that almost 100 players from Kentucky’s 2006, 2007 and 2008 bowl teams came back to Lexington to honor coach Rich Brooks’ legacy. Former UK tight end Jacob Tamme, who played on three teams that went to the Super Bowl during his nine-year NFL career, said his appreciation for Brooks has not grown because he appreciated him from the start. “I came in with him. It has been special to me from that day forward. The first coup...

    By LARRY VAUGHT By the time he was in the eighth grade, Kevin Knox Jr. was wearing either a size 14 or 15 shoe — and his father paid $200 for a pair of shoes for him for the first time. “But I still had a growth spurt or two left in me,” said the Kentucky freshman. “That’s what happened to football.” He was ranked as one of the nation’s top quarterbacks in his recruiting class as a sophomore when he realized a 6-6 quarterback might ha...
