It's fair to say that UK forward Nerlens Noel could have taken anyone to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. As it turns out, his guest for the Run for the Roses was the most special guest of all at Churchill Downs that day.
With the news that Alex Poythress will join Kyle Wiltjer and Willie Cauley-Stein and return to the University of Kentucky for the 2013-2014 season, UK is looking more and more like a team that will be playing on the final weekend next April at Cowboys Stadium.
It's been interesting and humorous watching these SEC Tournament games. Bridgestone Arena in Nashville is playing host to the tournament this year and to look out across the landscape of that building, you'd think Kentucky was playing in every game.
It was a good type of game to win. Kentucky was playing a good Missouri team that was trying to prove it could beat a team on the road that wasn't woeful Mississippi State (7-19). But in the meantime, Kentucky was trying to prove that it could beat a team that was going to the NCAA Tournament.
The gruesome injury UK freshman Nerlens Noel suffered during Kentucky's loss to Florida Tuesday night has turned out to be as ugly as advertised. Noel has a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and will miss the rest of the season.
