Harrison Twins pick Kentucky

John Calipari continued the magic carpet ride that is his recruiting by gaining commitments from perhaps the best package deal in the history of college basketball yesterday.  Andrew and Aaron Harrison - dubbed the Harrison Twins - announced their decision to play basketball for the Wildcats yesterday afternoon on ESPNU much to the delight of BBN who was collectively sitting on the edge of their seats.

The choice came down to Maryland and UK, and Andrew Harrison said the reason came down to winning.

"The most important thing to me is winning," he said. "I know Aaron scores more points than me, but it doesn’t matter to me. I just really like to win.

The recruiting coup gives the Cats 2 out of the top 4 players in the class of 2013 and, when all is said and done, Calipari is set to have the top ranked class in the nation yet again.

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
