Don’t call it a comeback. The No. 18 Kentucky Wildcats may have slipped a bit in the Top 25 rankings, but they’re still undefeated at home, advancing to 9-0 after last night’s 73-66 win over No. 6 Louisville. Kentucky was powered by a double-double from guard James Young, who had 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists in the Wildcats win.

In Syracuse, it was a war of unbeaten teams as No. 2 Syracuse hosted No. 8 Villanova. The Orange were able to keep their momentum flowing with a 78-62 win over the Wildcats, maintaining a spotless record at 12-0. Trevor Cooney came up big for the Orange with 21 points.

In the NBA, Chris Bosh stepped up huge for the Heat in the absence of LeBron James. Bosh had 37 points, 10 rebounds, and hit the game-winning three as Miami derailed the NBA’s top team, the Portland Trail Blazers, in a 108-107 loss. Blake Griffin also had a monstrous night in Utah, leading the Clippers past the Jazz with 40 points and 10 boards.

All this plus yesterday’s College Bowl game action featuring the eye-catching adidas adizero 5-Star 3.0 Camoflauge up next.
