Vaught’s note:: Benjamin Schodowski is a Centre College graduate who spent some time with me during his college career from 2005-2009 in Danville. He’s a big-time UK fan and aspiring businessman who also loves to travel. Today he shares his thoughts on who are the best players John Calipari has playing in the NBA and the upcoming NBA draft in what I hope will be the start of regular posts by him.

Kyle Wiltjer has not played at Kentucky for three years, but the former Cat says his mother has never lost her passion for the Wildcats.

“Yeah, and it is really funny. Obviously she just loves the Kentucky Effect,” Wiltjer said during his recent visit to Kentucky. “She just thinks it is so incredible the way the fans treat me. She is just really grateful that the fans are so supportive.”

Maybe somebody should have invited Bob Knight to attend the game against LSU so he could have watched an academic All American (Alex Poythress) who graduated in three years and is now working on his Masters degree have a Senior Day at UK after playing 4 YEARS as an integral part of the team.

We could also introduce him to Marcus Lee, an All Good Works team player, who is playing as an important part of the last three years along with Derek Willis and Dominique Hawkins, both three-year players, who have also been a critical part of this year’s team.

Kentucky basketball has unique fan in South Africa

By LARRY VAUGHT

When it comes to Kentucky basketball, there are no limits to where you might find a fan.

Take Rev. Cydell LeGrand of Johannesburg, South Africa who describes himself on Twitter as “BBN from Afar.” So how in the world did that come about?

“It may seem strange that a African like myself support the Kentucky Wildcats! I was watching television one day on my local sport channel and your team was playing a team for the university playoff final. I enjoyed the way Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist played as a team, so I further looked into your school,” LeGrand said. “I was amazed by the rich tradition your program has and I have been a fan ever since. Whether the games are on television or if I have to stream them on my Dell computer.”
