* Kentucky freshman guard Malik Monk was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week after leading the Wildcats in scoring with 21 points and 3.5 assists per game in wins over Vanderbilt and Auburn. Monk had 18 points against the Commodores and a game-high 24 with six assists in the win over Auburn. Monk shot 48.3 percent from the floor for the week, helping the Cats to 12 games this season where they made at least half of their shots. UK has shot better than 50 percent in all five SEC games. This is Monk’s fourth SEC honor of the season (third Freshman of the Week). The Wildcats will resume action tonight at 7 p.m. as they travel to Mississippi State. The game will air live on ESPN and available on AM 600 WKYH (Johnson Central Boys Basketball game on WSIP).

* University of Louisville junior guard Quentin Snider will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks with a strained hip flexor suffered in the second half of the Cardinals’ victory over Duke last Saturday. Snider suffered the injury on a layup with 18:48 remaining in the second half, but finished the game despite his discomfort. The injury should heal with rest and rehabilitation and does not require surgery.

* The University of Kentucky cheerleaders won their 22nd national championship at the Universal Cheerleaders Association competition Sunday in Orlando, Fla. Competing among Division IA Coed squads, the Wildcats claimed the crown with an amazing score, 97.8 out of a possible 100 points. It was a night for Southeastern Conference excellence as Alabama and Ole Miss finished second and third, respectively. Kentucky won its first national championship in 1985, also winning in 1987-88, 1992, 1995-2002, 2004-06, 2008-10, 2012, 2014 and 2016. The cheerleaders and dance team will be honored Saturday during the men’s basketball game vs. South Carolina.

* A website that's dedicated to following the NBA is reporting that Louisville is a serious contender in possible expansion in the future. 16winsaring.com says expansion couldn't happen until the 2018-'19 season but that 2019-'20 would be more likely. If so, Seattle and Mexico City are the first two on the wish list. But, it says Louisville is "still very much in the picture" to join the league. The article adds that both Seattle and Mexico City could have issues. Seattle with trying to finance an arena and Mexico City because it's two games played there have done very well. Other cities being mentioned with these three are Las Vegas and another one-time NBA city, Vancouver. The article also says about Louisville that it's a "serious contender as things stand now."
