Billy Gillispie is Retiring from Coaching

Former University of Kentucky head coach Billy Gillispie has announced that he is retiring from coaching due to health concerns.

Gillispie told the Dallas Morning News of his decision:

"No one's ever enjoyed coaching more than I have, I promise, and no one's ever been luckier in the coaching profession than I have," Gillispie said. "What a wonderful career!

"I've been very sick with blood pressure issues since the summer, but I've tried to fight it out. I got a report Monday that told me if I didn't address this blood pressure situation immediately, irreversible, bad things were very likely to happen here relatively soon and my long-term health could be compromised. "Timing isn't great, but I've decided to do what I was told and try to return to healthy ASAP.

"I've had a wonderful career and in the last two years some of the best days I've ever experienced as a coach. I hate leaving this team because they are really coming around, but they understood me being sick. That's the worst part of it, not coaching."

Bellarmine University Up to No. 6/7 in the National Polls This Week

Bellarmine University is up to No. 6 and 7 in the NCAA Division II national rankings this week.

Here are details from BU:


LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The Bellarmine University men's basketball team is ranked No. 6 and No. 7 in the latest DII Media Poll and the NABC Division II coaches polls that were announced on Tuesday afternoon.
After recording wins in two Great Lakes Valley Conference games on the road last week, the Knights climbed one spot in the DII Media Poll sponsored by D2SIDA, a consortium of NCAA Division II sports information directors, but remained in the same No. 7 position in the coaches poll.

There was a bit of a shake up at the top of the poll as last week's consensus No. 1, the West Liberty Hilltoppers, dropped a game to Fairmont State last week. The D2SIDA poll ranks Northwest Missouri as its new No. 1 while Saginaw Valley State rises to the top in the NABC poll. The Cardinals are the only team to post a victory over Bellarmine this season, scoring a 68-66 win in the first game of the year when SVSU drained a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining.

Other Bellarmine past and future opponents in the polls include: Alabama Huntsville (No. 9 in both polls), Drury (NABC No. 12 and D2SIDA No. 16) and Lincoln Memorial (D2SIDA No. 22 and NABC No. 24), while GLVC-member Southern Indiana is getting votes in both polls.
