Kentucky point guard Ashton Hagans has announced he will return for a sophomore season.
The 6-foot-3 guard out of Cartersville, GA made the announcement this afternoon on Instagram.
“I’m back like I forgot my keys! #yearTwo” Hagans said.

As a freshman, Hagans averaged 7.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. He finished in double figures 13 times this season, including a stretch of five consecutive outings with 11 or more points from December 29 (Louisville) through January 15 (Georgia).
Hagans has already proven he can be a superstar on defense, and with another season to work on his jump shot and cut back on turnovers, he could become something pretty special under John Calipari in 2019-20.
Let’s run this thing back.
