John Calipari and Tony Barbee spent their Friday night scouting one of the best junior point guards in America. They did not leave disappointed.
Before going to College Station, Cal and Barbee went to Garland, Texas to watch Tyrese Maxey, the No. 2 point guard in the 2019 class, knock down seven three-pointers en route to a district championship. Maxey finished the game with 28 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists.
Considered the No. 13 player overall, Maxey became the first point guard in the 2019 class to receive a UK offer after he visited Lexington for Big Blue Madness. Despite the offer, SMU took the lead in Maxey’s 247 Crystal Ball after the Mustangs hired his father to be an assistant coach this summer.
