Rumor Mill

  •  Looks like Jodie Meeks might play tomorrow against Marquette. Still a long shot but coach Gillispie said he at least is improving a little bit.
  •  On the recruiting front, Kentucky is pursuing 5-star big man from the class of 2009 DeShonte Riley out of Michigan, rivals.com ranks him as the #13 player overall in his class. He is also being recruited by Georgetown, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan St., Kansas St. & Ohio St.
  •  Shawne Williams, a top UK recruiting target for the 2009 class, said in an interview with Catspause.com’s Jeff Drummond that Kentucky is firmly in his top 3 and UK has offered him a scholarship. Williams was on the Duncanville HS (TX) team this season, a team that at one time was #1 in america.
  •  Scotty Hopson, probably the best player in Kentucky, had his season end today as his University Heights Academy team fell to Lexington Catholic in the Boys Sweet Sixteen, Hopson finished with 21 points in the loss.
  •  According to this Sports Illustrated article it looks as though Kentucky is now pursuing two of the top unsigned players from the 2008 class Bud Mackey and David Ebanks. Ebanks originally signed with Indiana but asked out of his LOI and was granted his release after the Kelvin Sampson incident.
  •  Pictures surfaced of possible new Kentucky Basketball uniforms, and no they are not black. the home uniforms are white with a thick solid stripe of blue coming up the back on each side by the shoulders and have checkerboard shorts. The road uniforms are blue with white stripes. Click THIS LINK to see the jerseys if you are a premium member to Catspause.com or look at the bottom of the page for pictures. The jerseys in the picture are not the exact pictures from the catolog that originally presented the new uniforms, they are basically a photoshop copy.
