Yesterday Kentucky offered a scholarship to the number one Center in the 2016 class, Udoka Azubuike. Big Buike has no relation to Kelenna Azubuike, but it is rumored that he is the son of Mr. Sandman from Mike Tyson's Punchout.

James Young took a break from hangin' with Rihanna & Jay-Z to cross the state on a quick autogaph tour. My daughter and I swung by Towne Mall Sunday and got to meet James and get a picture with him. I printed out a great pic of his dunk against UCONN and had him sign it. He was really nice and took his time with each person in line. I told him it was the best dunk I'd ever seen in my life. He laughed and thanked me. He seems like a great guy and I look forward to him posterizing everybody in his path in the NBA.

Dakari just released a statement announcing his return to UK for next season. The Cats will be LOADED in the frontcourt like no team has ever been. Here's what Dakari had to say,
"This year has been for me a year of transition, growth and so much fun! I’ve learned a lot about myself personally through adversity and triumph which I know made me a stronger individual. I would like to thank my brothers (teammates) for pulling together and stepping up and taking the road that many don’t travel. What memories! I would like to thank Coach Cal and the staff for trusting and providing me the opportunity to grow and build on my skills. I’d like to wish Julius Randle and James Young all the best and personally let them know that they have a group of brothers who will always support them.
With that being said, I’m excited about having the option to either enter the 2014 NBA Draft or return to the University of Kentucky. After looking at the information provided to me by Coach Cal and the NBA committee, my family and I made the decision for me to return to UK for my sophomore year. Returning to school allows me to build on my leadership skills, improve my individual basketball strength and conditioning skills, and have another opportunity to accomplish one of my individual goals: winning an NCAA national championship in college. In addition, it will give me the opportunity to continue my studies because the ball will stop bouncing one day (shout out to Mike Stone). Big Blue Nation, I can’t thank you enough for your support, and I look forward to representing UK next year.”
Now we await the Twins' decision...

As we all expected, Julius Randle declared for the NBA Draft yesterday, but today brought the BBN great news when Alex Poythress announced his return via press release:
" Playing in the NBA has always been a dream of mine, but I want to make sure that I’m NBA-ready before I make that jump,” Poythress said. “By coming back, I’ll be so much closer to earning my degree in business and it will give me another year to prepare my game and my body for the next level."
That's three down and three to go!

Willie Cauley-Stein Tweeted that he is returning to UK for his Junior season (take that Harrell and Loserville). Marcus Lee has also indicated that he is returning (no big shocker there but some people thought he may transfer). So that's two down with six left to decide. Right now the popular belief is that Randle and Young are gone, Poythress will probably return to UK and the Twins and Dakari are all 50/50 and could go either way. Personally, I think this news increases the chances that Dakari declares for the NBA because we are going to be super stacked down low with a forest of bigs. If the Twins do decide to come back it will be time to start printing the 40-0 shirts again (No, we didn't learn our lesson and never will.)
