Just reached halftime of the first of the Kentucky men's basketball exhibition games in Canada. I'm not in Canada to detail the action, but Guy Ramsey, who will be helping us on the blog throughout the year, is across the border and will have video for us later tonight.

In the meantime, wanted to quickly run through some newsworthy notes while I have a few mintues:

- Before the game started, UK head coach John Calipari broke the news that freshman guard Jarrod Polson will be on scholarship this season. Polson, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard out of West Jessamine High School in Nicholasville, Ky., was originally recruited as a walk-on.

- A bit of bad news from UK football fall camp as the team learned that junior wide receiver Gene McCaskill is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees. McCaskill suffered the injury during Saturday's scrimmage at Commonwealth Stadium.  The junior wide receiver was listed No. 3 on the wide receiver depth chart behind Randall Cobb and Chris Matthews. McCaskill, who has 32 receptions for 344 yards in his UK career, is expected to redshirt and return next season.

- Back to the game ...
