Couple of quick hitters before I head out of the office:
- There was a report today that freshman Eric Bledsoe had signed an agent and was staying in the NBA Draft. UK officials spoke with Bledsoe on Tueday, who informed UK that he has not signed with an agent and will make a deicision on his future on May 8.
- Baseball travels to No. 11 Louisville on Wednesday for a 6 p.m. pitch with the nationally ranked Cardinals. UK upset its archrival 5-0 earlier this season at Cliff Hagan Stadium. But that you already knew. What you didn't know is that the Cards are ranked No. 5 in this week's RPI ratings. Combined with UK's brutal Southeastern Conference schedule, five of the teams UK has played or will play this season are ranked in the top 11 in the RPI. Additionally, 10 teams are ranked in the top 25. What's it all mean? Well, as tough of a road UK has had this season, if it can find a way to make it into the SEC Tournament, the strength of schedule might be enough to vault the Cats into the NCAA Tournament.
- We will have a live blog from Jim Patterson Stadium in Louisville on Wednesday for the game. I'm hoping to hear from the baseball team at some point for a feature/preview story.
