Good morning. Happy December! Only 24 more days until Christmas and 31 days until the new year. Hope you find time to cozy up and watch Kentucky games in between the holiday rush.

What else are we mixing into today’s Brew?

🏐 Round 1: Win
🏀 Last second win against Boston College
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 One Down. Kentucky volleyball won its first game in the NCAA Tournament with a 3-0 sweep over Wofford. Brooklyn DeLeye had 13 kills, and Elise Goetzinger had 12. Overall, the team hit .390 and had 46 digs. Eleanor Beavin had 15 of those digs. The Cats are set for its round two match against Baylor at 7 p.m. tonight.

🔼 Final Shot. At the women’s basketball game against Boston College, it all came down to Eniya Russell’s final shot to win the game 83-81 for the Cats. This is the first win for the team after a five-game losing skid, and it was a big one being the SEC/ACC Challenge game. Russell also had a career-high 21 points in the game, with Ajae Petty right behind with 17 points and eight rebounds.


Kentucky Pro. Some of our current players have declared for the NFL draft, and we already have a handful of alumni in the pros. Josh Allen is on the Jaguars and just won a weekly honor for his 2.5 sacks that changed the game.

Today’s question— what weekly award did Josh Allen earn?
