LEXINGTON — I’ve only missed one of the seven Swings For Soldiers Classic events hosted by Allison and Jacob Tamme to raise money for Homes For Our Troops and it’s a terrific event that has raised over $500,000 to build specially adapted homes.

Monday’s event at the University Club outside Lexington was no different.

It starts with the Tammes greeting everyone as they pull into the entrance to the club and giving participants their special Swings for Soldiers Classic goody bag.

During the SEC coaches teleconference Monday, several coaches were asked about raising the profile of SEC basketball.

Kentucky assistant coach John Robic had an interesting answer.

“We’re getting ready to start our eighth year here at Kentucky, and the one thing I will say in coaching for a long, long time, you have really, really good players in this league, and terrific coaches. From one through 14,” Robic said.
