    No. 6 Kentucky dismantles Hofstra 96-73

    John Calipari sounded like a typical college student. He can't wait for finals to be over. He's not thinking winter vacation, though. He's thinking basketball. All basketball.

    "I am so happy because Wednesday will be our last finals. I don't have to worry about anything academically," Calipari said after No. 6 Kentucky beat Hofstra 96-73 on Sunday.

    Malik Monk set Kentucky freshman record with 47 points in win over UNC

    Midway through the first half, a frustrated North Carolina fan stood and screamed at Malik Monk.

    "You can miss!" she yelled, before pausing and changing tactics. "Please?" she added.

    Monk rarely complied, setting a Kentucky freshman record with 47 points and hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer with 16.7 seconds left to lead the sixth-ranked Wildcats past No. 7 North Carolina 103-100 on Saturday.

    Happy homecoming: Allen leads No. 25 Florida over Arkansas

    A lot of people expected Florida guard KeVaughn Allen to have a good night on his return to Arkansas. Even knowing that ahead of time did little to help the Razorbacks against the No. 25 Gators in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.

    Allen hit key baskets to end run-after-Arkansas-run Thursday as Florida took an 81-72 victory. Daryl Macon scored 22 while trying to keep the Razorbacks close, but conceded after the game there was little to do but watch.

    No. 8 Kentucky bounces back, beats Mississippi 99-76

    Any concerns whether No. 8 Kentucky could bounce back from a tough road loss to an archrival were eliminated Thursday night in less than five minutes.

    Malik Monk scored 34 points, Isaiah Briscoe had a triple-double and the Wildcats used an early surge to roll to a 99-76 victory over Mississippi in the SEC opener for both teams.

    No. 6 Kentucky has no trouble in 100-58 rout of Texas A&M

    Kentucky coach John Calipari had plenty of praise for a Wildcats performance that was consistent and thorough on both ends.

    The sixth-ranked Wildcats still have a way to go, but their effort against Texas A&M on Tuesday night offered encouragement for the coach and his young roster.

    Malik Monk scored 26 points, fellow freshman De'Aaron Fox had 15 and Kentucky rode an early 15-0 run to cruise past Texas A&M 100-58.

    No. 6 Kentucky pulls away from Arkansas in second half 97-71

    De'Aaron Fox alternated determined drives to the basket with soft jumpers that showed why he is the second-leading scorer for No. 6 Kentucky.

    Making it more satisfying for the Wildcats freshman was getting other contributions to offset an off night for scoring leader Malik Monk.

    Fox scored a career-high 27 points, Derek Willis and Isaiah Briscoe each added 15 and Kentucky pulled away to beat Arkansas 97-71 on Saturday night.

    Allen scores 23 as No. 24 Florida beats Tennessee 83-70

    There was a time when last season's Florida Gators wouldn't have had the fight to dig themselves out of the hole they were in during Saturday's game against visiting Tennessee.

    That could be a huge difference for No. 24 Florida in its effort to return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in three years.

    After 13 lead changes and six ties, the Gators finally got rolling against the Volunteers. With a flurry of 3-pointers in the second half by sophomore guard KeVaughn Allen and senior forward Justin Leon, Florida won 83-70 before a sold-out crowd of 10,843.

    Thornwell leads No. 23 South Carolina over Missouri 63-53

    No. 23 South Carolina entered Saturday night with the nation's best 3-point defense, holding opponents to 26.4 percent from beyond the arc.

    So it's not surprising that struggling Missouri had a miserable night from deep.

    Sindarius Thornwell had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Missouri shot just 5.9 percent from 3-point range and South Carolina beat the Tigers 63-53.

    No. 9 Kentucky rallies past Vanderbilt 73-67

    Never had Kentucky faced such a deep hole under coach John Calipari, a situation that took nearly everything the ninth-ranked Wildcats had to overcome Vanderbilt before holding on.

    Their defensive urgency created offensive chances for Malik Monk to deliver once again.

    Monk scored 20 points in the second half, including 10 in the final 3:40, as Kentucky rallied from a 13-point deficit and held off Vanderbilt 73-67 on Tuesday night to clinch a share of the Southeastern Conference regular season title.

    Barry scores 14, No. 12 Florida handles Arkansas 78-65

    Florida swingman Canyon Barry got a glimpse of how close he is to being fully recovered from a sprained right ankle Wednesday night.

    Barry blocked Dustin Thomas' shot near the basket with about 4 minutes to play. It was just his 10th of the season and first in nearly a month.

    "First time I felt like jumping hasn't really hurt me," Barry said. "Starting to get my explosion back."

    Just in time to help the Gators in the postseason.

    Barry scored 14 points on Senior Night, his best game since injuring his ankle two weeks ago, and No. 12 Florida handled Arkansas 78-65 on Wednesday night.

    Kevin Knox, No. 9-ranked prospect in 2017, commits to Kentucky

    [​IMG]

    Five-star forward Kevin Knox announced his commitment to Kentucky on Saturday.

    Knox, the No. 9 prospect in the 2017 class, chose the Wildcats over Duke, Florida State, North Carolina and Missouri.

    Knox adds to Kentucky's top-ranked recruiting class. He is the sixth five-star prospect to commit to John Calipari's program in the 2017 class, joining P.J. Washington (No. 11), Nick Richards (No. 16), Jarred Vanderbilt (No. 18), Quade Green (No. 23) and Hamidou Diallo.

    Ex-Kentucky basketball director indicted on charges of defrauding athletes

    [​IMG]


    A former Kentucky men's basketball director and NCAA employee has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of defrauding professional athletes for nearly $1.3 million, aggravated identify theft and money laundering.

    Former Kentucky football player Leon Smith, who owned and operated Lexington-based Legacy Pro Management Group and Legacy Athlete Management, was named in the indictment, according to a copy of the document obtained by Yahoo! Sports.

    The indictment listed 14 counts of fraud and alleges that Smith misappropriated $1,298,506 in funds from September 2011 through January 2015 from four unnamed professional athletes who used his businesses for various financial services and other assistance, according to Yahoo.
