Remember that time I said that Kentucky’s basketball season was over, and we were in that weird “between” phase? Sorry, but that wasn’t entirely true. With so many really, really, really, ridiculously talented players coming in next year, it’s fair to count the high school postseason and awards season as honorary UK basketball, right?
It’s for that reason that we should all check out ESPN at 1 to watch Dakari Johnson’s star continue to rise after his impressive McD’s performance earlier this week. And yes, you read that right, not ESPNU, not ESPN3, not ESPN8: The Ocho. Just regular old ESPN. Big-time stage for a big-time player.
Dakari’s Montverde squad will tip off against St. Benedict’s out of New Jersey in the championship for the National High School Invitational. The game is sandwiched between episodes of SportsCenter, and is a nice break in an otherwise slow Kentucky basketball day. So enjoy watching the player that Jason Jordan referred to as a “MONSTER,” and imagine what he’ll be doing next year in Blue.
Tune in espn at 1 all I got to say
