  • Vaught’s Views: Lynn Bowden...

    By Larry Vaught

    Lynn Bowden didn’t really know anything about the Kentucky-Ohio All-Star Basketball Game until his coach recently told him about it. Once he heard about it, he thought, “Why not,” and opted to play in Saturday’s game at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills.
    Even though he’ll be a 6-1 guard for Ohio, he could be the most interesting player in the game for many University of Kentucky fans. He’s a UK football signee and was rated as one of the top 100 players in the 2017 recruiting class by ESPN.

    “It was first outdoor meet for our guys team this spring,” Head Coach Daniel Johnson said. “I was really impressed with how Blake Thompson performed in the 300-meter hurdles in his first time in the event. I am excited to get him some more reps in practice and get him in the 110-meter hurdles as well. He was also our top performer in the 100-meter dash.”

  • Vaught’s Views: ‘Everybody is...

    Kentucky’s season did not end the way any UK fan, coach or player wanted with the bitter 75-73 loss to North Carolina Sunday in the South Region final. However, don’t forget UK won 32 games, won the SEC regular-season championship and also won the SEC Tournament.
    But let’s also put one myth to rest — or at least try.
    How many times do you read or hear that Kentucky’s one-and-done players only care about the NBA and becoming millionaires? It happens all the time.
