Kentucky-Florida score, live updates, stats

#QuadeWatch: He led the Cats out of the locker room for the layup line about 25 minutes before tip-off and looks loose, energetic and bouncy. He’s moving fine, swishing some threes, goofing around with teammates. Would be sort of surprising if he  doesn’t play tonight, which is huge against a loaded Florida backcourt.

For once, #VandoWatch is not necessary. Jarred Vanderbilt made his debut on Tuesday night and will likely play even more minutes against the Gators. So now it’s #QuadeGreenWatch. The starting point guard has missed the last three games with a back injury, but he’s been out working with his teammates here at Rupp Arena before the game.

Kentucky-Florida preview

  • Calipari said starting point guard Quade Green, who has missed the last three games with a back injury,  will be a “game-time” decision Saturday. The Wildcats have missed his poise (and shooting from 3-point range and the free-throw line) at the ends of games. They could  really use him against Florida’s loaded backcourt, featuring Chris Chiozza (12.3 ppg, 5.9 apg, 4.2 rpg, 2.1 spg), Jalen Hudson (16.5 ppg), Egor Koulechov (15.1 ppg, 7.1 rpg) and KeVaughn Allen (11.3 ppg) — three of them shooting better than 40 percent from three. All four guards have scored at least 26 points in a game this season.
  • Will Kentucky be motivated by some harsh  criticism from ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg this week? He called the 5-star freshmen “spoiled” among other things. And then on Friday,  Calipari all but agreed with him — saying Greenberg’s points need to be addressed and sharing that the Cats had an unpleasant film session in which he demanded personal responsibility in the form of, “That’s on me, Coach.”
  • ESPN analyst Jay Bilas, in town for College GameDay, had a lot to say about the young Wildcats (and college basketball in general) on Friday.  We have the full Q&A here, and it is well worth your time.
  • Oh, and about the same time Kentucky and Florida tip off, 5-star sensation Zion Williamson will announce his college decision. All the buzz is for home-state Clemson,  but there’s still a sliver of hope the Cats can pull a Kevin Knox-type surprise.

USC football officially announces 2 new assistant coaches

Published: Saturday, January 20, 2018 @ 2:40 PM

USC’s 2018 coaching football staff is now complete with the promotion of two quality control assistants to full-time positions. Bryan Ellis will be the Trojans’ quarterback coach while Keary Colbert will coach tight ends and inside receivers, a position created by the NCAA allowing FBS teams to add a 10 th assistant.

“I have been extremely impressed with both individuals over their time here at USC,” head coach Clay Helton said in a news release.  “Their knowledge of the game, ability to develop relationships with our current players and talent to recruit top athletes will be a tremendous asset to our program.  These are two young stars in our profession and we are proud that they are part of the Trojan Family.”

Colbert was a wide receiver at USC from 2000-03, catching a then school-record 207 passes for 2,964 yards and 19 touchdowns. He was a graduate assistant with the Trojans in 2010 and then was on the staffs of Georgia State (2013) and Alabama (2014-15) before re-joining USC as an analyst in 2016.

Ellis, who played quarterback at UAB from 2007-11, was interim QB coach for USC during the Pac-12 title game and the Cotton Bowl after Tyson Helton left to become offensive coordinator at Tennessee.

WATCH: Dabo Swinney speaks to Clemson basketball team after win over Notre Dame

Clemson is a football school. On the gridiron, the Tigers are expected to compete for ACC championships and national titles year in and year out.

Clemson’s basketball success so far this season, however, has been much less expected. And it appears the leader of the Tiger football team has taken notice.

After Clemson defeated Notre Dame 67-58 for the program’s first ever win against the Fighting Irish on Saturday, football coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the Tigers in their locker room. Swinney offered praise for the team — but not before he jokingly tried to recruit some basketball players over to the football team.

“Any of y’all that don’t go to the NBA, I will take you for your fifth year,” Swinney said, drawing laughter.

Swinney told the team that not only is he proud of their 16-3 record, but how it has gotten there.

“I’m so freakin proud of you guys,” Swinney said. “I see you all lifting each other up, encouraging each other. You freshmen, kind of finding your role.”

As impressed as he has been with Clemson’s performance so far this season, however, Swinney told the basketball players that he believes the best for the team is yet to come this season.

“This has been so much time to watch you guys, and the best is still in front of you,” Swinney said.

Former Wisconsin S Natrell Jamerson earns defensive MVP in East-West Shrine Game

natrell jamerson-east west shrine game-wisconsin badgers

The final score may not represent one that appeals to the casual football fan, but for former Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson, it was perfect.

In the 2018 East-West Shrine Game on Saturday, Jamerson’s West squad defeated the East, 14-10. The play-making safety starred for the winning side, scoring the first points in the game by taking a 68-yard fumble return to the house.

Thanks in part to the longest scoring play of the game, Jamerson earned defensive MVP honors.

Jamerson was a senior for the Badgers this past season and actually began his collegiate career as a WR before moving to CB in 2015-16. He registered 51 tackles and 12 pass deflections this past season.

The 6-foot standout also had two interceptions and scoring on one of them.
