  • Vanderbilt practices

    Cal confirms Vanderbilt joined the team for his first full practice. Says he looked, "very good."

    I was in the camp saying he would never play at UK. This would be a HUGE addition for UK if he plays and is the player most think he is.

    He’s seriously going to suit up?

      Cal said he "changed the practice" so it seems like it. I doubt he gets any time tomorrow, but you never know.

            Cal said they look forward to getting him on the court. Sure seems like he is going to play.

                  He sure can't hurt things. The chemistry isn't all that great now that he would disrupt things.

                  This could be great news.

                    This could make Knox buckle down and play harder, or his minutes could dwindle.

                      With the way reports have been the last few years about the kid he could take minutes from Diallo at 2, Knox at 3, or Richards and play 4 moving PJ to 5 when we go small. I am excited to see what he can do in the middle of the floor when we are facing a zone.

                        Maybe...but UK needs shot-makers. Obviously if Knox keeps throwing up bricks he really doesn't help the team, but the Knox we saw early on is essential with as few perimeter scorers as we have.

                        Vanderbilt can't shoot. He can do a lot of things and if he's healthy he will help this team, but a shooter he isn't.

                        I would imagine what will happen if he's 100% is he'll start playing the 4 and Kentucky will go small with Washington at the 5. Knox stays at the 3 with Wenyen rotating in.

                        Definitely gives you more bodies and length, and that's always a good thing. But Vanderbilt's action is all going to happen from about 15 feet in.

                          I guarantee you JV shoots better than Diallo.

                            I wouldn't count on that. If I recall Vanderbilt shoots in the 30% range on free throws. I can remember seeing a few air balls.

                            Diallo with better shot selection wouldn't be too bad. He makes 37% of his 3 point attempts. Too many silly, circus shots drags his percentage down

                              Gross.

                              But where'd you see that? What evidence do we have?
