LEXINGTON, Ky. – The sheer numbers don’t lie. The 23rd-annual Rod McCravy Memorial Track and Field meet was awesome. Again.

Not just the quantity of world-leading times (four), NCAA-leading marks (eight), meet records (six) and facility records (four).

The quality of the times too.

Chief among them was the 60-meter hurdles time that world record holder Kendra Harrison (100H) posted.

As a cheerleader, the word “leadership” takes on a whole new meaning. Not only do you have to show professionalism on the sidelines, but you have to take on the role as someone whom so many aspire to be and look up to.

The spotlight is back on the UK Cheerleaders after taking home their 22nd national championship on Sunday in Orlando, FL.

LEXINGTON — Kentucky coach John Calipari has been waiting for freshman Wenyan Gabriel to become more of a factor.

Saturday against Auburn, Gabriel did.

He hit two 3-pointers in the first half to help jump start the UK offense but his energy stats were even better. Four minutes into the second half he already had eight rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal. Plus, he drew charges on back to back possessions.

Cats survive at Vandy

By LARRY VAUGHT

NASHVILLE — After a 9-0 burst to open the game and make it seem like another Southeastern Conference blowout was coming for Kentucky, things really got interesting here Tuesday night before UK beat Vanderbilt 87-81.

The Commodores went on a 17-6 run after UK took the 9-0 lead after UK starting guards Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox both picked up two fouls in the first three minutes.

After that, Kentucky could never pull away from the Commodores and found itself trailing several times in the second half before clutch scoring by Monk and Fox in the final two minutes enabled UK to survive.
