Been away from the computer most of the day because of a prior work commitment, so let's quickly catch up today's biggest news (outside of the unveiling of the new NCAA Tournament bracket, which I posted a little bit earlier).

- The final two of UK's NBA draftees will make their debut in the NBA Summer League on Monday night in Las Vegas. DeMarcus Cousins is set to tip off shortly at 6 p.m. as the Sacramento Kings take on the Detroit Pistons at 6 p.m. Shortly thereafter, Eric Bledsoe of the Los Angeles Clippers will make his debut against a former face in John Wall and the Washington Wizards at 10 p.m. There's a very good chance the two former teammates will guard each other at some point during the game. Should be fun to watch for those of you that have access to the game.

- UK men's basketball signee Terrence Jones topped the Press Telegram's 31st Best in the West high school basketball team. Why do we care about a paper out west? Well, let me give you a few good reasons to care. Previous top vote getters for the annual team include future Hall of Famers Jason Kidd and Paul Piece, in addition to Richard Jefferson and Kevin Love. Not a bad group to be associated with at all. Will the power forward, ranked No. 13 overall by Rivals, live up to their billing? We'll begin to find out this fall.

- Former UK guard Rajon Rondo has just about officially joined the elite company in the NBA with the report that he has verbally agreed to join Team USA. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo confirmed the commitment to Chris Tomasson of AOL Fanhouse.

- NBA TV continues to produce some very cool videos of some of UK's former men's basketball stars. The latest is a four-minute behind-the-scenes look with Wall:

- And finally, for a little football action, check out four videos on UK football from Dan Rieefer from WTVQ. Yes, the videos are from last week, but they're definitely worth checking out as Randall Cobb talks about Operation Win, Joker Phillips and much more in an exclusive one-on-one interview with the junior wide receiver. Links: Part one, part two, part three and part four.
