25 Kentucky loses more than just the game

25 Kentucky fell to 7 Florida last night and fell hard, going down 69 – 52.  Adding insult to injury, no pun intended, star freshman forward Nerlens Noel suffered a gruesome leg injury and had to be carried off the court.  The good news is that x rays were negative, no break or fracture found.  He will undergo an MRI today.  Too bad for this young man as many projected him to be the number one pick in the NBA draft…another in a long line of Kentucky one and done stars heading right into the NBA.

Elsewhere, 4 Michigan went down on the road to rival 10 Michigan State, 75 – 52.  This was a good old fashion tail kicking but remember it is tough on the road and rivalry games are crazy.  The Michigan State crowd which was very loud and boisterous wearing  t shirts that said You Off, a parody on the t shirts worn by Michigan and their fans, Me On.  Gotta love rivalries!

Speaking of rivalries, probably the greatest one in all of college basketball comes on tonight, NC visits 1 Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium.  Now if you want to see fan zaniness at it’s best, tune in!!!

Breaking news:  Update on injury to Kentucky’s Noel.  He suffered a torn ACL and will be out for the rest of the year.  He is expetecd to have surgery in 2 – 3 weeks.  Really tough break for him and Kentucky!
