I am at the Apple Store in the Queen City on my way home from the game. The Cougs lost last night to Kentucky 72-61. I'll have more on that later. Dontaye Draper had 15-points and Tony White Jr. had 12-points. The talk around George Street is that he is the next Marion Busby (6th on the all time scoring list for the Cougars-we'll have to wait and see. Words to the wise, if you are even the slightest bit a basketball fan, put seeing a game at Rupp Arena on your "to-do" list. To answer your question, indeed, Ashley Judd was there for the game. I am rushing home for the Cremins Show at George's after my visit with the "genius bar" here at Apple.
The Cougars (3-3) will face Charleston Southern (4-3) tomorrow night (7 pm) at the North Charleston Coliseum in the Trademark Properties Lowcountry Classic. The Cougars and the Citadel lost to Chas. Southern last year making the old Baptist School the City champs. With Chas. Southern's trio of seniors Donnell Covington and Dwayne Jackson and junior Chris Moore the Cougars will have their hands full, but I doubt the outcome will be the same as this year's Johnny Suzuki Classic where the Citadel Bulldogs lost to Chas. Southern.
Chas. Southern's wins of note:
Chas. Southern defeated the Citadel (72-63) and Coker College (87-46).
In the "L" Column for Chas. Southern:
Chas. Southern lost to Furman (69-80), Tulane (69-75) and Clemson (50-74)
