After eight days of basketball in Croatia, Brad Calipari returns to the United States with an impressive stat sheet.
The UK sophomore wing and head coach’s son averaged 14.3 points, 6.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds in four games against Croatian professional teams in the Global Sports Academy event. His best performance was his first. Calipari scored 17 points, dished out 7 assists and grabbed 4 rebounds in his Croatian debut.
Calipari is the fifth Wildcat on the 2017-18 roster to play against international competition this offseason. Hamidou Diallo and P.J. Washington played for Coach Calipari on Team USA at the U19 World Cup, Tai Wynyard played in the same tournament for New Zealand and Sacha Killeya-Jones is playing for Great Britain’s EuroBasket team.
