It was laughed at, ridiculed and wasn’t well-represented in the NCAA Tournament. In the eyes of many college basketball analysts, the Southeastern Conference was just plain bad last season.

Basketball Preview: New coach gives sophomore a second chance at UK

The last time DeAndre Liggins stepped off a basketball court, he just wanted to see his family. Liggins’ freshman year started off poorly and didn’t get any better as each game came and went. By season’s end, the relationship between Liggins and former UK head coach Billy Gillispie was beyond repair. After the Cats’ season-ending […]
