James Wiseman plays on ESPN2 tonight

Get on those tippy-toes, Cal!

Want to check out one of Kentucky’s most coveted players in the 2019 class? Tonight at 7 p.m. James Wiseman’s Memphis East (Tenn.) will take on Webster Groves (Mo.) on ESPN2, giving you the perfect chance to do a little Thursday night scouting.

Memphis East is currently ranked number one in the country, and, as you can see above, is coached by Penny Hardaway. Because Wiseman also played for Hardaway on Team Penny in the EYBL, he was ruled ineligible for this season at Memphis East, but yesterday, was granted a temporary injunction so he can play for the time being.

There were some rumblings Wiseman might reclassify to 2018, but he shot those down last week. Regardless, Kentucky is still the clear favorite for his services, which is an excellent thing because he’s very good at basketball.

    Heard on Louisville radio that Memphis will replace Tubby with Penny next year and Wiseman and 2 others from East will stay together at Memphis. At least that is what the people in Memphis are hoping will happen.

      Wow. I know Penny probably has a lot of ties their, but kids that good would be insane to sign up to play for a high school coach. Runny does need to go though. He’s burnt more money than imaginable. Hasn’t worked hard since the early 2000’s and for some reason schools keep thinking he’s an upper echelon coach.

    He has good instincts.

    He understands where the jugular is. Pounce’s like a Wildcat already.

    Come rattle the rims in Rupp Big Fella!
