Last Saturday night the final high school all-america game of the spring took place, with the Ball is Life All-America game being played at Long Beach City College in Long Beach, Calif. While Jordan McLaughlin (headed to USC), Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre (both headed to Kansas) were unable to play due to injury the game did not lack for star power.
Players such as Stanley Johnson (Arizona), Shaqquan Aaron (Louisville) and Tyler Ulis (Kentucky) participated, and as is the case with all-star games there was no shortage of offensive highlights. Above is a video of a few of those plays.

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for me to be joined by a guest on the podcast and today, it was Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo Sports.
Jeff is a west coast guy, so we spent some time talking about Pac-12 hoops and USC vs. Oregon. We also got into Kansas-West Virginia, Purdue’s win over Michigan State and Denzel Valentine vs. Buddy Hield.
And like me, Jeff is a bit of a beer snob, so we did have a chance to chat about some of our favorites early on. At this point, I should be sponsored by Bell’s.
Anyway, you can listen to the podcast by clicking “play” on the Soundcloud player embedded below. Or you can do so through either iTunes or Stitcher if you so choose. Thanks for listening!
Kentucky’s ‘Dancing Guy’ has turned into a fan favorite at Rupp Arena.
Every home game, during one of the TV timeouts in the second half, ‘Mony Mony’ will come on, Dancing Guy will hop into the aisle and he’ll break it down like only a middle-aged white guy from Kentucky can.
As you can see, it didn’t quite go all that well for Dancing Guy on Tuesday night, as he tried to do a rail slide while holding a young, female fan and completely ate it.
Here’s another angle of the fall:
It looks much scarier that it actually was, as all reports indicate that everyone made it through the fall healthy.
