As usual, when you take a Kentucky player out of Kentucky and put them in front of reporters who don’t cover the team day in and day out, they get asked a bazillion and one Kentucky questions.
However, Isaiah Briscoe was having none of that today, according to SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker.
“All the Kentucky questions, I don’t play for Kentucky no more!” Briscoe yelped. “I’m just trying to start fresh.”
“I enjoyed my time at Kentucky, it was fine, but I moved on,” he said, declaring that his pro position will be point guard. “Obviously, I wasn’t playing point guard in college, but it is what it is. College is over with. Why we still talking about college? I’m starting a new chapter in my life.”
Briscoe did have a solid outing in two 5-on-5 scrimmages, scoring 28 points with 11 assists and six rebounds in 46 minutes of play. And did take time to talk about how the program has prepared him for the NBA.
“I’ve been playing against NBA guys for the last two years and pretty much all my life, so it’s nothing new,” he said. “And then the combine we have at Kentucky, I think it’s more pressure there than in here, because the gym is so small and everybody’s on top of you.”
So far the only team that Briscoe has met with is the Miami Heat, but you only need one team to give you a shot.
