Good morning, friends. We’re one step closer to the NFL Draft and the Kentucky Derby, while still waiting on some major basketball coaching hires. What does today hold? Here’s your rundown.
Kentucky Cheerleading goes for its 25th UCA national title
Last night, Kentucky Cheer performed its first routine at the Universal Cheer Association national championships in Orlando, which counts for half of the final score. Today’s performance, scheduled for approximately 6:06 p.m. ET, will make up the other half. The winners will be announced tonight. Here’s a look at last night’s performance:
C-A-T-S, Cats, Cats, Cats!
— UCA (@UCAupdates) April 27, 2021
The Cats have won 24 UCA national titles, more than all other schools combined. They placed third in last year’s competition, ending a four-year championship streak. In her first year as head coach, will Ryan Martin O’Connor bring home the title? Fingers crossed.
DVR Alert: Spring Practice special on SEC Network at 7 p.m.
Need a football fix? Tonight at 7 p.m., the SEC Network will air a one-hour special on Kentucky Football Spring Practice, featuring exclusive interviews with Mark Stoops, new offensive coordinator Liam Coen, defensive coordinator Brad White as well as NFL standouts Josh Allen, Randall Cobb, Benny Snell Jr., and Danny Trevathan, and never-before-seen footage from practice and scrimmages.
Kentucky Baseball got its third straight win
Coming off a series win over Alabama, the Bat Cats kept the momentum rolling last night with a 7-6 victory over Eastern Kentucky. Kentucky trailed 5-1 in the fifth inning, but Coltyn Kessler evened the score with a two-run shot to centerfield, becoming the second Wildcat to hit a home run in three straight games this season. Kentucky fell behind again in the sixth inning, but Ryan Ritter saved the day with a game-winning two-run double to right field to make the final score 7-6.
Kentucky is now 25-13 overall, 9-9 in SEC play. They have a quick turnaround this week, traveling to No. 4 Tennessee for a Thursday night series opener. First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
Basketball Coaching Staff update
Still waiting. Not even a cryptic tweet from a UK Basketball staff member to share; however, that’s not cause for concern. Orlando Antigua is still on vacation in the Dominican Republic and the job postings only went live on Monday. We’re hearing everything’s still on track to bring Antigua back and add Chin Coleman. Keep in mind John Calipari remains with Terrence Clarke’s family to help in the aftermath of last week’s tragedy.
The Boston Celtics honored Clarke last night, playing this tribute on the jumbotron at the Garden and holding a moment of silence.

If that didn’t get the tears rolling, Calipari shared these pictures of TC cheering on the Celtics throughout his childhood.

Pass the Puffs Plus, please. There is no good way to transition from that, but we must…
The NFL Draft starts tomorrow night
As many as seven Wildcats could hear their names called during the three-day event in Cleveland, Ohio, but linebacker Jamin Davis is the only one expected to go in the first round. Davis is projected anywhere from No. 19 to No. 29, but Cleveland at No. 26 is a likely spot. Cornerback Kelvin Joseph will likely hear his name in the second round on Friday, with the rest of Kentucky’s hopefuls getting their best shot on Saturday.
