Housekeeping notes for a Wednesday morning

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
In theory, a mid-February Wednesday during the open date for the men's basketball team should be a comparatively quiet day.

Not so much.

Wednesday afternoon is going to be a crazy one even though swimming and diving is the only sport in action (at the SEC Championships). Men's basketball, women's basketball, softball and baseball all have stuff going on that we'll be covering for the blog, so let's run it down:

  • John Calipari and his Cats will be holding a much-talked about open practice and scrimmage this afternoon at 3 p.m. If you haven't heard, it's open to students, faculty and staff and tickets are still being distributed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Just over 1,000 tickets were distributed on Tuesday, so head over to the Memorial Coliseum ticket office on Euclid Ave. to get yours. In addition to the practice and scrimmage, there will be promotions throughout and the remainder of the Anthony Davis poster will be distributed (about 900 posters). If you can't attend, you can watch on ESPNU, WKYT in Lexington, or online at ESPN3 and Additionally, we'll be live blogging the festivities.
  • Coach Cal will be talking to the media right before the event and we will have video of his comments on the blog later. Calipari will be preceded by UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell, whose team is looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses to LSU and Tennessee. The Cats still own sole possession of first place, leading the Lady Volunteers by a game.
  • Beginning at noon, the baseball and softball teams will hold a joint media day. Coaches Gary Henderson and Rachel Lawson will address the media, as well as select players. We'll have video of all those interviews on the blog later today, with stories to follow on Thursday.
