DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe are back in Kentucky for basketball camps and they stopped by the Joe Craft Center tonight to see what all the hype surrounding the new class is about. The two former Wildcats joined Julis Mays for some run with Dakari Johnson, Julius Randle, Marcus Lee, Jon Hood, Jarrod Polson, Dominique Hawkins and Alex Poythress.
Randle got caught on the receiving end of a Cousins’ dunk at one point in the scrimmage but spent most of his time on Poythress. Dakari Johnson drew the assignment of guarding Boogie; I’m told it didn’t go well, but what 18-year-old would do well against Big Cuz?
Marcus Lee and Dominique Hawkins looked good, according to a fly on the wall.
Welcome to the summer of Kentucky basketball.
