  • Towles expects to compete for starting spot
    FORT THOMAS, Ky. - If the goal is to never let 'em see you sweat, then Patrick Towles had failed already.

  • 2011 class made a huge impact
    With all of the excitement surrounding the 2012 recruiting class University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong and his staff have put together, there was just as much hype surrounding the class that signed a year ago.

Last year's class, which numbered 21, was rated the No. 29 class in the nation, according to Rivals.com. Eleven of those players saw action last season.

  • Willis commits to Kentucky
    MOUNT WASHINGTON, Ky. - John Calipari has his first commitment of the 2013 recruiting class, and Bullitt East High School four-star forward Derek Willis won't need to travel far when he moves to Lexington.

  • Trinity wins the LIT
    Game Summary- Moore jumped out on Trinity early but the Rocks stayed composed and closed the gap to a 30-29 deficit. The Shamrocks wore down the Mustangs and started getting turnovers to easy baskets out of their press. Moore gave a great effort considering they had played two games that came down to the buzzer in the last 24 hours heading into this game. In the end the Rocks proved why they are the number one ranked team in the state.
