BBL: Women stay perfect as men search for answers

sidneukwomen

The Kentucky women’s basketball team kept its record spotless by beating East Tennessee State on Sunday. The Cats are rolling towards Sunday’s showdown with No. 2 Duke at Rupp Arena. The 10-0 Blue Devils play Connecticut in the Jimmy V Classic on Tuesday in Durham. ESPN2 is televising the game if you’d like a peek at the Dookies.

Meanwhile, the UK men’s team is still trying to figure things out after Saturday’s loss at North Carolina. Gary Parrish writes that if it had Ohio State’s schedule, UK would probably be No. 1. But that’s not really the point is it? The Cats have played three ranked teams and lost to all three.
