If you’re a Kentucky fan, be sure to check out 2011 commit Anthony Davis of Chicago Perspectives Thursday at 5 o’clock EST on ESPNU.

St. John’s, Arizona and Texas fans can watch Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep against Yates (Texas) Thursday at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

Findlay features Amir Garrett, who has signed with St. John’s, Arizona commit Nick Johnson and Texas commit Myck Kabongo.

The Pilots are 14-1 on the season and currently ranked No. 4 by ESPN Rise and No. 5 by USA Today.   Yates is riding a 66-game win streak.

Also, Duke and Kentucky fans — and hoopsters in general — should circle Jan. 14 when Duke-bound Austin Rivers and Winter Park (Fla.) hosts Kentucky commit Michael Gilchrist and Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick. These two were scheduled to meet in August in Orlando, but Gilchrist went on vacation with his family.

  • Those are going to be some GOOD games.

    Cann’t wait to see Nick and Findley.
    As well as Oak Hill.

    Sorry Kansas Gangster U…
    TWO years in a-row of poor recruiting.
    Why , no one going?

  • Sorry JW….
    TWO years in a row of no NCAA tourney for UA.
    You’re a tool.

  • Rock, WTF are you talking about? So a 8-2 Zona team who take care of weaker opponants and is probably the 2nd best team in the PAC and is gonna end up with a record in the neighborhood of 23-8 not going to the dance again? I mean I know JW is annoying but the stuff you spew is just not even realistic. I mean if that helps you sleep at night i guess… But seriously not talking crap or anything, whats going on with the recruiting down there?

  • 2 years?!?!?

    I was under the impression that X Henry, E Johnson, and T Robinson was a good class, add that to Selby and Royce-I think we’re ok. Concentrate on the game, kid.

  • zona not getting in with an RPI of 68 and SOS of 129. zero quality wins. likely the profile will just get worse since the pac-10 is a 1 bid league.

  • To those Kentucky “Cash Money” Wildcats…

    Arizona will look forward to its meeting in the Tournament.

    The NCAA will not put Arizona and Kansas in the same bracket since, they already played.

    But, the West has growing CASH MONEY issue with Cali.

    ps- Wait until Kansas “Gangster U” losses. All of its fans will go back to be silent.
    Right Woody.
    Right Chalk.

    fo sho.

  • zona stock dropping fast. northern arizona: RPI 163/SOS 311

    robert morris….might be zona’s signature win of the season.

    thats how laughable zona is. miller padding the schedule to keep fans off his back with fraud wins.

    must be getting hot for him.

  • Cat in the Desert, is your basketball IQ really that limited? You’re going to try & play the recruiting “card” like JW? Yeah, when Self landed Selby that should’ve been a signal that KU can’t recruit. Stupid. Remember, numbnuts, KU isn’t exactly trying to rebuild somebody else’s program.

    Act like you’ve been there before. I know it’s been a while.

  • Come on RockChalkWoody, your name says it all. You live in that dump state of Kansas and talking smack? What gives. Go ahead and live in that hell hole for now while we bask in the beautiful sun. Kansas will become irrelevant soon enough in basketball and headed for Conference USA soon enough once it is dumped by Big 12 when Texas leaves the conference. Kansas does not have the population base to ride the gravy train that the state of Texas has created. You are just pissed because you guys lost Josiah Turner and the days of coming out West and getting recruits are numbered with the reemergence of Arizona.
    I wish for us to meet in the NCAA tournament so we can knock off your boys and shut you up. But as usual, you will go underground hiding in your closet since it is too cold out in that dump.

  • Hey Woody;

    You are going to be even more pissed when Angelo Chol commits to Arizona. Kansas has nothing coming! Suck on that for awhile and when you get mad enough, come back to this board to spew some more garbage out of more anger! lol
