If You Don't Know, Now You Know

I had never heard of Jodie Meeks until late last night.

So you know now, Jodie Meeks is a Junior for the Kentucky Wildcats (13-4) basketball team.

Last night, Meeks set a school record for points in a game with 54. Meeks broke the school's all time record set by Dan Issel in 1970.

Meeks achieved this accomplishment on the road against Tennessee. The Volunteers aren't really considered a cupcake team either. Remember Tennessee was ranked No. 1 at one point last year. And considering Kentucky basketball's rich history, this is quite a milestone.

Meek's 54 points were the most scored by an SEC player since Chris, better known as Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, Jackson put up 55 for LSU in 1989.

Meeks is a product of Norcross, Georgia.

His final line for the record night:

15-22 fg%, 10-15 for 3's, 14-14 from the line, 8 boards and 4 dimes.
