- Florida ended up beating Miami (Fla.) 4-0 late Saturday night in the NCAA Tournament, meaning UK and Florida will match up for the third time this season in the round of 16. Florida defeated the Cats in the finals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament a couple of weeks ago, but UK won the regular-season matchup, the program's first win in Gainesville, Fla., since the 1992 season. The upcoming matchup, with a bid to the Elite Eight on the line, will take place Thursday in Stanford, Calif.

- I failed to mention Saturday that, with the win over Louisville, Kentucky is now 42-3-1 all-time against its archrival.

- The UK softball team will learn where its headed for the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night. The NCAA selection show is at 10 p.m. on ESPNU. 

- The stock of Alex Meyer, who, in perhaps his last home start Friday, picked up a win over Georgia, is soaring. Baseball America projects Meyer as the sixth overall selection in this year's 2011 MLB Draft.   

- DeAndre Liggins, who decided to stay in the NBA Draft early last week, is starting to show up on mock draft boards. Draft Express, and all have Liggins going in the second round now:

Draft Express - 54th to the Cleveland Cavaliers - 56th to the Los Angeles Lakers - 56th to the Los Angeles Lakers

- Wondering why there were no Kentucky men's basketball players or signees trying out for the United States' FIBA U19 World Championship team? Jerry Tipton from the Lexington Herald-Leader has the explanation in Sunday's paper.

- And finally, Chip Cosby takes a look back at his 10 years covering UK football in his final story for the Herald-Leader. Cosby is leaving Lexington's largest daily newspaper after more than a decade of work to take a job with cn|2. I'd recommend reading the insights of a guy who as been as big of a part of UK football as anybody else over the last 10 years. Again, best of luck at your new job, Chip.
