Kentucky appears to be the favorite for five-star center, says national analyst

Five-star basketball recruit Nick Richards will be in Lexington this weekend for his official visit to UK. The 6-foot-11 center from Queens, N.Y., is also considering Arizona, Indiana, Syracuse and UConn, but the Wildcats “appear to be the favorite,” says one national recruiting analyst. Richards excelled on the Nike tour this summer and has hosted John Calipari for a couple of visits since.

UK students reported 837 sexual assaults in 1 year, but almost none went to police

University of Kentucky students reported slightly fewer sexual assaults on campus in the second annual campus safety survey, but a high number of them are still not reported to the UK authorities. Of the 23,000 students who responded to the Campus Attitudes Toward Safety (CATS) survey for 2015-2016, 837 reported some kind of sexual assault, compared to 1,050 the year before. Only 20 percent reported to any UK source, including the police, the VIP counseling center or a faculty or staff member. Just over 1 percent went to the Lexington police and the vast majority, about 60 percent told a friend or family member.
