Good morning. There is only one more Monday until Christmas. If you haven’t bought the best presents ever, Kentucky gear, you better act quickly! New gear just dropped, too 👀.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

🏀 Men defeat Penn
🏃 Great start at the Early Bird Meet
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼  Calm & Collected. It only took one game for Aaron Bradshaw to shake off his nerves. In only his second collegiate game, Bradshaw was totally in the zone and ended with his first career double-double, 17 points and 11 rebounds, against Penn. He and Rob Dillingham led the team with 17 points, and the Cats won the game 81-66.

🔼  New Record. Track season kicked off at the Indiana Early Bird Meet, and the team started off on the right foot. One Kentucky athlete already set a school record. Logan Coles threw 68’04.50”/20.84m in the weight throw, which surpassed the previous school record set in 2017 by David Cline. There were six new personal bests in three events and 29 Wildcat debuts. 


Undefeated Streak. The men’s basketball team just added another W to its series against Penn. The Cats are still undefeated against the Quakers in both home and away games.

Today’s question— what is the series standing?

Preseason Prowess. After their most accomplished season, the women’s gymnastics team received a No.9 ranking from the Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association. Team 49 saw its first undefeated homestead since 1984, set a new overall road meet score at Illinois and many more. Now, Team 50 has the chance to do it all again when they head to Las Vegas, Nevada, to kick off its season at the Super 16 on Jan. 5.
