After taking nine days off with family in the Sierra’s mountains, it is great to get back home and take a look at the team workouts spring JUCO Basketball. 

Workouts…really tough on the players who have taken time off for awhile.  Painful.  Will they have the toughness, guts and talent to make the move up?

Kentucky forward Willis arrested for public intoxication

Associated Press  |  Last updated 1 day ago

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky senior forward Derek Willis has been released after being arrested for public alcohol intoxication.

The Boone County Jail web site says that Willis was arrested Saturday and later released after posting $50 bond. The web site did not provide further details.

A message left Sunday night with a Kentucky athletics spokesman was not immediately returned.

The 6-foot-9 Willis, who turns 21 next week, became a bigger part of Kentucky’s rotation last season and finished with per-game averages of 7.7 points and 4.0 rebounds. He’s the second-leading scorer returning to a Wildcats squad that lost three players to the NBA draft while Marcus Lee and Charles Matthews have transferred. Forward Alex Poythress has completed his eligibility.
