UK Players Dominate another All-Star Game

If you were a wrestling fan in the late 90's then you know all about the Nation of Domination. And yes, that is The Rock as Rocky Maivia.

Just like the McDonald's All American game, the Nike Hoops Summit game was highlighted by four players coming to Kentucky next year.

Anthony Davis has emerged as the #1 recruit according to the ESPN Top 100. Davis had a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Not to be outdone, Michael Girchrist also chipped in 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 blocks. It appears that these two players will be double-doubles waiting to happen every night.

The other two of UK's four recruits, Kyle Wiltjer and Marquis Teague, scored 12 and 6 points respectively.

The updated rankings have the Cats recruits as #1, #3, #7 and #18. The only school close to touching UK in the number of top 20 recruits is Syracuse with two: #19 and #20. The highly touted Cards class has two in the top 30, Wayne Blackshear at #26 and Chane Behanan and #27. They also have #55 Zach Price. I guess that's ok if you don't like going to Final Fours and bowing out in the first round of the tournament on a consistent basis.

Here is a little something to wet your whistle while looking forward to next season:
