Friday Morning Dump

Light dump today. Everyone have a safe and healthy New Year.

And please, call a cab. Don't drive. It ain't worth it.

- Louisville will be heading into their game with Kentucky this afternoon quite undermanned. Already without Elisha Justice and Mike Marra, and with Jared Swopshire likely done for the year, Rick Pitino just lost Raheem Buckles to a broken finger. Buckles was an important piece for this team, as the combo-forward provided quite a bit of versatility for the Cardinals.

- Speaking of Louisville-Kentucky, Matt Jones argues that its the best rivalry in college hoops. Gotta admit, he's pretty convincing.

- More Louisville -- Pitino will still coach Puerto Rico.

- Seth Davis with his weekend picks. You better be right, Seth, or my landlord will be upset when that rent check isn't in her mailbox on Saturday.

- Jelan Kendrick is headed to Ole Miss. We'll try to get a post up about this today. If it doesn't happen, my thoughts in two words: bad idea.

- I've always felt weird about low-major basketball teams buoying their athletics budget on a couple of guarantee games. It seems like athletic prostitution. Fairfield looks like they are going to get burned as a result of having their game with Florida canceled.

- Title says it all

- I've always loved Keiton Page. He's like watching a cabbage patch kid with a jump shot.

- Kyle Whelliston with a list of one-man shows over at Basketball Prospectus. This could also be titled "Mid-Major hoopers you should know about."

- DeAndre Daniels should be choosing a school pretty soon

- Scores like this are the reason no one cares about women's hoops.
