A source with knowledge of the happenings around the basketball program told KSR that Alex Poythress has joined Derek Willis in the midnight sessions in the Joe Craft Center. Poythress has been walking over to the gym late at night to put in work on his own time since Kentucky’s loss at Arkansas.
Before today’s practice, Poythress, who says he doesn’t mind coming off the bench, told reporters part of the reason for his elevated play is he is in better shape this season. He said the treadmill doesn’t affect him anymore and he feels like he can run for days.
