  • Anthony Davis is having a season-long block party.

    The likely No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, Davis scored 27 points and blocked seven shots Tuesday night to set a new single-season school blocks record as No. 2 Kentucky beat Arkansas, 86-63, at Rupp Arena.

    “I know they’re definitely thinking about it when they come in the hole and they’ve got to shoot the ball,” said Davis, who had 14 rebounds. “It’s definitely in their mind – where’s Anthony Davis?

    Amile Jefferson could make his college choice by the end of January, his father told SNY.tv Tuesday during an exclusive interview.

    “At the end of the week we’ll have a conversation and I think he could wrap this up in the next few weeks,” Malcolm Musgrove said by phone. “I’m thinking by the end of January he will know.”

    Musgrove said his son, a 6-foot-7 forward from Philly Friends Central, is still considering Duke, Kentucky, N.C. State, Ohio State, UConn and Villanova. Stanford and Temple are no longer being considered.

    As the Rivals No. 4 center in the Class of 2013, Kennedy Meeks is one of the most highly recruited players in his class.

    The 6-foot-8 Meeks, 265-pound out of West Charlotte (N.C.) High has drawn interest and offers from much of the ACC.

    “Everybody in the ACC has offered  except for North Carolina and Duke and I also have Georgetown, Pittsburgh and Syracuse,” Meeks said. “Georgetown and Carolina are showing the most interest.

    “Right now all the schools are equal; some schools show more interest than others but I don’t have a top five right now.”

    After a pair of weekend wins over St. Peter’s Prep at the Dan Finn Classic and over Lithonia (Ga.) Miller Grove at the Hoophall Classic, Bob Hurley’s St. Anthony Friars are a perfect 12-0.

    Following last year’s 33-0 season that culminated in Hurley’s fourth mythical national championship, the Friars have now won 45 games in a row.

    Their last loss came in the New Jersey state tournament to Trenton Catholic on March 13, 2010.

    UCLA-bound senior point guard Kyle Anderson, who transferred to St. Anthony from now-defunct Paterson Catholic at the start of the 2010-11 season, is now 45-0 in a St. Anthony uniform.
