Men's basketball: Following a buzzer-beating 73-72 loss at Indiana, Kentucky fell from its perch atop both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. The Wildcats check in at No. 3 in each. Four other Southeastern Conference teams are also ranked: Florida (No. 13/13), Mississippi State (No. 17/16), Alabama (No. 23/21), and Vanderbilt (No. 25/25). I know it's only December, but UK checks in at No. 8 in the RPI according to RealTimeRPI.com.

Women's basketball:
Sporting a perfect record through 10 games and a pair of wins against top-15 opponents in the last 10 days, UK Hoops is No. 8 according to the AP and No. 7 according to coaches. The Wildcats will have a chance to pick up a third marquee win in the non-conference as they travel to South Bend, Ind., for their second road game of the season against third-ranked Notre Dame.

Also, congratulations to junior guard A'dia Mathies for being named National Player of the Week by the United States Basketball Writers Association.

Wow. They (the pollsters) must really be sold on us. I know it wasn't a bad loss but I still thought we would drop to around 5-6. We have a long way to go still
