The Boys and Girls Club of Phillips County is working hard to offer a good place for young folks to entertain themselves athletically or utilize the center’s other opportunities. 

   The Boys and Girls Club of Phillips County is working hard to offer a good place for young folks to entertain themselves athletically or utilize the center’s other opportunities.  
   We should give a big thanks to Jason Rolett, the director, for what he and his staff are doing without expecting all of high profile attention.
   The girls – 3-4 and 5-6 – championship games were played Tuesday night.
   Westside took on J.F. Wahl in the 3-4 contest and Westside’s 5-6 girls faced Desoto.
   Results will be in the Weekend Edition Friday.
  
        Go for it, John
   
   John Calipari has done probably all that he can hope to accomplish at Memphis, so why not jump at the opportunity to become the next head coach for the Kentucky Wildcats.
   ESPN reports that Kentucky is willing to dangle a $35 million 8-year contract at Calipari or whoever can bring the Wildcats back to the   championship level the university brass, alumni and fans expect.
   Kentucky didn’t make the cut for the NCAA tournament which is almost unheard of for the team with the winningest record.
   The Wildcats bowed out in the quarterfinals of the National Invitational?Tournament last week.
   The ho-hum season cost Billy Gillispie his job after two seasons.
   Calipari could remain at Memphis where he has as close to absolute job security as there is in college sports.
 The Tigers own Conference USA with no losses in three years.
    Missouri put Memphis out of the hunt for a NCAA crown last week. Those Tigers are coached by  Mike Anderson who happened to be the coach of University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) – the last Conference USA team to defeat Memphis.
  You would think maybe Anderson knew something about to defense Memphis.
  
         Sheffield cut
 
 Detroit cut Gary Sheffield Tuesday. He’s one homer shy of the 500 mark which would likely punch his ticket to Cooperstown.
  Some team surely needs an ole codger who still can supply some power.
   Washington would be a nice fit.
 Detroit was so desperate for a World Series berth in 2008 the owner shelled out the bucks and went for other guys who were known as heavy hitters.
   Pudge Rodriguez did cut it either and was shipped to the Yankees. He’s with Houston for probably one last team in the Majors.
   Season starts Monday.
