Writing for www.lex18.com has been a new experience for me and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead working with the sports team of Alan Cutler, Dorian Craft and Keith Farmer as well as other at WLEX-TV.
Hopefully those of you who come here regularly to check for UK news will also make sure to go to the WLEX site to see my stories as well as much, much UK coverage provided by the WLEX sports staff.
In case you missed them, check out two stories I did this week. The first was with the importance of Isaiah Briscoe to this team even if he does not have the glowing statistics that teammates Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis did. Check out the story here: http://www.lex18.com/story/31299048/isaiah-briscoe-just-keeps-doing-what-it-takes-to-help-kentucky-winhttp://www.lex18.com/story/31299048/isaiah-briscoe-just-keeps-doing-what-it-takes-to-help-kentucky-win
The second story is one I think you will really like about John Wall. I had a chance to talk Brian Clifton of Word of God Academy in North Carolina where Wall played high school basketball. He shared insights about Wall’s connection still to the program as well as more about the current NBA star.

Let me know what you think of the stories and ones to come.
