From the Associated Press:

Former University of Kentucky basketball star Richie Farmer wants to delay his report date to federal prison by a week.

Farmer's attorney asked a federal judge to bump the reporting date until March 25. He's currently due to report March 18 to the federal prison in Hazelton, W.Va. to serve his 27-month prison term.

The former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner says he wants to see his son play in the Kentucky State High School Basketball Tournament. The earlier report date would make that impossible.

Farmer pleaded guilty in September to using state resources for his personal benefit.

Farmer gained basketball fame as part of "The Unforgettables" - a group of Wildcats who stayed with the program through NCAA sanctions and led Kentucky back to the NCAA tournament in 1992.
