We loved him. Don’t pretend like you didn’t.
The former Kentucky target from the class of 2011 is now starting for Alabama at shooting guard. He moved into the starting lineup six games ago and he’s averaging just under 10 points per game in the new role.
It wasn’t that long ago when we were expecting a commitment from Lacey. He was very interested in playing for UK last December, but he kept the process open and in May he chose to stay at home in Alabama over moving to Lexington. He said he was concerned about playing time at UK with Doron Lamb deciding to stick around.
Despite his insane high school numbers and YouTube mixtapes of three-pointers, Trevor Lacey is only shooting 29% from the beyond the arc this season. On that note, he’ll probably be the guy who lights UK up for 25 tomorrow afternoon. That’s just how it works sometimes in Rupp Arena.
See you tomorrow, old friend.
