UK ranked No. 3 in both polls



RANKINGS: UK is No. 3 in the coaches poll, behind Syracuse and Ohio State and ahead of No. 4 Louisville. Indiana is No. 20.

UK is also No. 3 in the AP poll and received four first-place votes (it received no first-place votes in the coaches poll).

AWARDS: Florida swept the SEC weekly awards. Forward Patric Young won Player of the Week and Bradley Beal won Freshman of the Week.

OTHER: The Memphis Tigers PA Announcer accidentally introduced its head coach as “John Calipari,” which is incorrect. Boos ensued, and he quickly corrected himself to “Josh Pastner,” which is correct.

  • In a related note, Memphis lost that night to Murray State, which is now 10-0 and has a realistic chance to go undefeated.
  • Mark Krebs will be a movie star, or something like that. He’s in Kevin Durant’s film, “Switch,” and plays a basketball player. Here’s the IMDB page for the movie.
