Coach Cal Hit the Road to the Marshall County Hoop Fest


John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats defeated Harvard just after 5:30.  He spoke with the media until about 6:15.  Two hours later Coach Cal was walking into the Marshall County Hoop Fest.

Calipari made the quest to Western Kentucky to watch a handful of talented underclassmen and one of his 2018 signees, Keldon Johnson.  This is what Johnson did last night.

The primary reason Calipari rushed across the state is to see the matchup between Zion Harmon and D.J. Jeffries.

Jeffries is a five-star small forward ranked in No. 18 in the junior class.  He has an offer from UK and the Cats lead in his recruitment ahead of a handful of other SEC programs.  Harmon caught the eyes of the Commonwealth when he led Bowling Green to a Sweet 16 Title as an 8th grader.  Now the No. 1 freshman point guard in America, he played with seniors on the EYBL last year and was still one of the better point guards on the circuit.

No matter what Calipari sees, nobody will be happier tonight than this guy.

    He should have gone to Memorial an wathced the Volley Cats win an exciting match. After dropping the 1st two sets the C-A-T-S rally to tie it. Then in a 12-12 tie in the 5th set they get 3 straight points to close out and advance. CONGRATS.


      At the very least Cal can show his guys take of this game. He could use it as a lesson on “coasting”…

    Yep! I was there, and I thought we were toast after we dropped that second set. Hats off to WKU for playing their hearts out tonight. It’s a shame they couldn’t be on the other side of the bracket.

    Well he obviously didn’t do the same Lex to Marshall county road trip that I did…. I’ve gotta get me one of those private Jets.

    Hoopfest looks kind of dead this year.
