    That is a way to describe the showdown with unranked Collins, despite the of the Lady Bearcats having already played six games against teams ranked in the Rating the State Top 20 that appeared in Monday's Lexington Herald-Leader.

    “It is really a big game,” says Anderson coach Tony Kays. “It is a seeding game.”

    Well, at least not long enough to wear a Kentucky basketball uniform. That, of course, is all that most people in these parts care about.

    You know all about Enes Kanter, the young man from Turkey who wants to play basketball for the University of Kentucky. I am told he could score like Dan Issel, rebound better than Kenny Walker, make James Lee look like a softie and, for all I know, could simply reach up to hang another championship banner at Rupp Arena, no ladder needed.
