NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Latest from SEC mens basketball media day on Wednesday (all times local):6:05 p.m.John Calipari has ignited another firestorm at Kentucky. This time its an internal squabble.The Kentucky coach said Wednesday at SEC media day his statement that his current crop could be one of his best prompted an immediate reaction from some of his past Wildcats.All those guys have already hit me like, `So, this may be your best group, Calipari said. Trey (Lyles) hit me, Karl (Anthony Towns) hit me. Devin (Booker), they all hit me. Tyler (Ulis). `Really? This may be your best group?Towns led the Wildcats to a 38-0 start before losing 71-64 to Wisconsin in the Final Four, denying Kentucky the first unbeaten championship season since Indiana in 1976. Calipari said that group had some alpha dogs on it, more into winning and supporting teammates.So how did Calipari respond? He texted back that he needed to see if he has any alpha dogs like they were.And they went, `Thank you.Kentucky is the preseason favorite to win the SEC again and Calipari has two preseason first-team All-SEC picks in freshmen Edrice Bam Adebayo and guard DeAron Fox. Guards Isaiah Briscoe and Malik Monk are on the second team.---4:15 p.m.Alabama coach Avery Johnson says he has benefited from working at the same school as Crimson Tide football coach Nick Saban.Coach Saban laughs all the time and say Ive met with him more in the last 16 months than the last two coaches combined, Johnson said. Thats intentional. I like to pick his brain about things. I like going to their practices and watch him work with the defensive backs every day, just like I work with our point guards. Its a lot of synergy there. We have a strong relationship.Johnson, who led his squad to an 18-15 record and an NIT berth last season, says he doesnt worry about getting overshadowed by an Alabama football program that has won four of the last seven national championships.Were not trying to be in the shadows of football, Johnson said. Were trying to partner with football, walk side by side and figure out a way that we can leverage their success to help us. I embrace it.---2:30 p.m.Auburn coach Bruce Pearl says its understandable why SECs football can stifle early season enthusiasm for basketball on league campuses.Pearly says, The SEC West is stronger than the AFC South right now in football.Pearl noted that isnt the case at other conferences.When we are playing college football in late October and early November, were just getting started in the SEC, Pearl said. Were just getting warmed up. Our best games are just coming. Half the Big Ten is ready for college basketball right now. ... Half of the ACC is ready for college basketball right now. Their football seasons over. Not in the SEC.Pearl emphasized he wasnt blaming the SECs football prowess for the leagues basketball struggles. He instead said that we should celebrate the SECs football strength and that we shouldnt shy away from it.Its not the reason why basketballs not good, Pearl said. We do have to get our fans and our kids a little bit more excited about November basketball. And we as coaches have to go out and win some more games in November.---1:35 p.m.In the first injury news of the SEC basketball season, Tennessee coach Rick Barnes arrived for his news conference Wednesday at SEC media day wearing a sling after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.Barnes said at the start of preseason practice that hes been wearing the sling since late September and was told at the time that he would need it for six weeks. That should enable him to have the sling removed in plenty of time for Tennessees Nov. 11 season opener with Chattanooga.---12:25 p.m.South Carolina coach Frank Martin says he has dropped 35 pounds during the offseason to make up for the weight gain that had occurred in the early years of his tenure.Martin said he weighs somewhere between 259-263 pounds now and wants to get to 250. He said he was touching 296 in April.I cut out the two things I love the most in life outside of my wife -- bread and rice, Martin quipped. I started working out pretty hard again. ... I dont do sodas. I dont drink alcohol, but I like me a piece of dessert, so we had to cut that out.Martin offered a simple reason for changing his diet and workout habits.I want to be a father to my children, Martin said. Thats the most important thing to me in my life. I want to see them grow and I dont want to deprive myself of that because I dont take care of myself.Martin said he had gotten out of shape from all the hours spent trying to build South Carolina into a winning program.There were a lot of nights shaking hands, doing dinners, having late-night conversations, eating junk food at midnight trying to turn every stone, watch every minute of tape, make every phone call to bring fans back into the building, to recruit a better player, to be better as a coach to help your present players, Martin said. That beats you up a little bit. I stopped working out and my eating habits kind of soured.---11:55 a.m.LSU coach Johnny Jones says it is fair to criticize him for the Tigers inability to earn an NCAA Tournament bid last season with the No. 1 overall NBA draft pick Ben Simmons on the roster.Ill be that guy who will stand up and say anything that was lacking in last years team, you can certainly point it at me, Jones said Thursday. Im the head basketball coach. At the end of the day, all that falls on my shoulder and we continue to get better. But at the end of the day, if youre in the top three in a conference of this magnitude, youd think youd get in the NCAA Tournament, but you just didnt have any control over that.Jones stopped short of saying the entire season was a disappointment, pointing to LSUs accomplishments. The Tigers went 19-14 overall and 11-7 in conference play to finish in a three-way tie for third place in the league.I think at the end of the day, not making the tournament was a disappointment, but we did not declare that as a disappointing year for us, Jones said. We were 8-1 at home (in conference play). We had a tremendous fan base. We averaged over 11,000 fans a game, the third-largest increase in the country last year. So a lot of positive things happened for our team last year.---10:40 a.m.Kentucky is the media favorite yet again to win the Southeastern Conference basketball title.A media panel made the Wildcats as the overall preseason pick for the 12th time since the 1998-99 season in voting announced Wednesday.Florida was picked to finish second, followed by Texas A&M, Georgia, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi and Mississippi State rounding out the top 10.

Full-back Tomkins took the ball just on the half-way line, and threw it up as if he was going to pass to Harrison Hansen, who was coming in at pace on the inside. However, it was misdirection of the highest order as Tomkins regathered and then turned on the afterburners to cut through Wigans defence and score in the corner. No 4: McGillvary and Brough deny Dragons Watch Huddersfields stunning late show against Catalans in 2015 Jermaine McGillvary and Danny Brough snatched a dramatic 22-22 draw for Huddersfield against Catalans at the 2015 Magic Weekend.
