      UNC owes student athletes an education

      A recent article in the Observer headlined the opinion of ESPN basketball commentator Jay Bilas that NCAA officials were “breaking their own rules to punish UNC” in the long running athletics scandal. While I admire Bilas both for his professional skills and his unflagging advocacy for college athletes’ rights, I have to take exception to one perspective expressed by him in the story.

The first Wildcat to hear his name called was De’Aaron Fox as the fifth overall selection for the Sacramento Kings, joining Kentucky alums Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere. According to several national media types, Fox’s ceiling in the NBA is very high. I think we’re always happy as a fan base to see newly drafted Wildcats join other former Wildcats, no matter the franchise. Fox will likely start in Sacramento, which is a pretty big deal for a 19-year-old. Greenie’s not always the best with predictions, but I could see this one happening. #PayTheGuys
