The other thread was locked. Time for a new one I suppose.

The AD was passing out extensions to most of the coaches down Interstate 40 East. Except for one. Slyvia Hatchell. Interesting that she is 2 years younger than Roy Williams who garnered a 8 year extension.

It does say Sylvia will have a personal services contract with Nike.

A new 338 million dollar on campus arena for UT-Austin's Men and Womens Basketball teams. Only 10,000 seats for basketball though.

The University of Texas, Oak View Group agree to build ‘world-class’ on-campus arena
I knew they were going to do it, my sister in law lives in the Austin area. But this is the first I heard of a definitive plan. Good for them. I root for Texas across all sports when it doesn't conflict with a more important rooting interest.

Some really sad news from Down Under, about a former Baylor player:

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/basket...-but-at-devastating-cost-20181223-p50nz2.html

Sport can be incredibly cruel sometimes.​
The Canberra Capitals thrashed reigning WNBL champions Townsville Fire 81-55 in Queensland on Sunday but the win came at a devastating cost after Kristy Wallace went down injured.​
Wallace only returned for the Capitals on Friday night after spending nine months in rehab following a knee reconstruction.​
In her second game back she went down in agony clutching the same knee and looks to have re-torn her anterior cruciate ligament.​

Patterson is definitely a huge get for KY. I was hoping she would choose Mississippi State because they could have used her big time next year (assuming she would be eligible for S2). She will boost Kentucky’s climb back to the top of the SEC.

Wow, that's really sad. All that hard work rehabbing after injury, only to injure the same knee again almost immediately. Really hope she is able to keep up her morale as she yet again has to go through recovery and rehab.
