Isaiah Briscoe was one of the players who addressed reporters during today’s media opportunity, and when faced with a classic Jerry Tipton question, he had the perfect response. Tipton asked Briscoe how it felt to “be the lesser” guard in Kentucky’s backcourt while Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis put up such big numbers.
Jerry: “Jamal and Tyler are putting up big, big numbers. You’re playing well, but your numbers are not–”
Isaiah: “Well, I’m not, I’m not–”
Jerry: “How does it feel to be the lesser of the three lights?”
Isaiah: “I don’t look at it like that. I think I contribute everywhere on the court. If I’ve got to score, if I’ve got to rebound, play defense — I just do everything. Like I said, Tyler and Jamal have been shooting the lights out of the ball and my assists have been going up, so I ain’t mad at that. I enjoy seeing my teammates shine. I think they deserve it, they work hard, so other than that, I’m just happy to be a part of what they’re doing.”
A+, Isaiah. Keep doing you.
