Well, he tried at least
By Dana O'Neil
NEW YORK -- Just before the half here at the St. John's-Georgia game, the Kentucky team came into the arena, grabbing a few seats behind the Georgia bench. John Wall sat among his teammates.
Or at least he tried to. The Wildcats' Elvis was immediately swarmed by autograph-hunting fans and the red-hot rookie quickly gave up, going back to the Kentucky locker room.
Meanwhile, as the Garden starts to fill up, anyone who thought this was going to be a UConn home game is sadly mistaken. There is plenty of UK blue throughout the arena, including a sea of it behind one of the baskets.
I'll be curious to see whose court this really is when tip-off rolls around.
