🏀 Men defeat Vanderbilt
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 Low for High. The men’s golf team competed in the Battle at Briars Creek and shot a 583 (+7) for a sixth-place finish out of 14 teams. Campbell Kremer and Alex Goff finished tied for fourth place, each hitting 142 (-2) total. That was Kremer’s best collegiate individual finish and Goff’s fifth-consecutive top-ten finish. The team’s 284 second-round score was the second lowest of the day.

🔼 Keep it 💯. The men’s basketball team hit triple digits in its victory over Vanderbilt. The Cats topped the Commodores 109-77, and Antonio Reeves led with 24 points. Both Justin Edwards and Jordan Burks had career-high scoring games with 17 and 13 points.

🔼  Our Stars. A record-breaking seven former Kentucky basketball players were selected to play in the 2024 NBA All-Star Game. It started with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and then a week later came Devin Booker, Anthony Davis, Karl-Anthony Towns, Bam Adebayo, Tyrese Maxey and Julius Randle. The game is on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 8 p.m. ET at the Grainbridge Fieldhouse.


Reappearance. Out of the seven athletes in the All-Star game, some are newbies, and for others, this isn’t their first go-around. Anthony Davis has been in the most All-Star games out of the seven athletes.

How many All-Star games has Davis been in?
