🔼 Yet Another. Everybody loves Barion Brown. For his fifth postseason award, The Sporting News named Brown a first-team All-American. Brown led UK in pass receptions with 40, good for 439 yards and three scores, had three punt returns for 51 yards and had 10 rushing attempts for 121 yards.

🔼 Hoops Talk. Assistant men’s basketball coach Chuck Martin joined Cameron Mills on the Behind Kentucky Basketball podcast. The topic of the episode was about forwards, sophomore Ugonna Onyenso and freshman Zvonimir Ivišić. See what Martin had to say about the two athletes on Apple, Spotify, the UK Athletics website, or Facebook.


Promo Time. The women’s basketball team released its SEC promotional schedule, which has many different dress-up days. The first one is on Feb. 11, when the Wildcats face Texas A&M.

Back-to-Back. Two volleyball players were recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association for the second season in a row. Emma Grome and Reagan Rutherford made the AVCA All-America lists, with Grome on the second team and Rutherford on the third team. Grome led the NCAA with 12,10 assists per set. Rutherford averaged 3.47 kills per set and averaged a .315 hitting percentage. 

These honors are number 53 and 54 in Kentucky Volleyball history. It is the 16th time the Wildcats have placed multiple players on the AA teams and 13th time in a row.
