Katz: Kentucky is Runaway Favorite to Win the SEC

ESPN's Andy Katz continues to show high praise for the Kentucky Wildcats in today's edition of his Weekly Watch article.

He names Virginia the "team of the week" but includes Kentucky as one of the other contenders:

Kentucky: The Wildcats are clearly the runaway favorite in the SEC. But holding on at Florida and at Auburn proves they can handle difficult road assignments. The Wildcats will get everyone's best shot, and Kentucky isn't being fazed in the final possessions.

Katz also praises John Calipari, the Big Blue Nation and WKYT for organizing the Hoops for Haiti fundraiser:

Kentucky: The telethon that Kentucky coach John Calipari helped run raised more than $500,000 in funds for "Hoops for Haiti" during a 4½ hour telethon Sunday. Matching funds pushed Kentucky's total to $1 million. This was pulled together in a matter of days. WKYT gets a lot of credit for organizing the event, but Kentucky's Big Blue Nation and everyone involved should be praised.
