The Kentucky Basketball team had the weekend off to go home, but instead of sitting on the couch watching Netflix, Immanuel Quickley got in some work. The Kentucky sophomore participated in the Kenner League, an annual summer tournament on Georgetown University’s campus.

Quickley, who hails from Bel Air, Maryland, suited up for Hoya Blue despite the fact that his flight landed only 90 minutes before tip off, according to the Kenner League recap. He finished with 26 points, 17 in the first half, but it wasn’t enough to get the W over A. Wash & Associates, led by Wake Forest guard Bryant Crawford. Regardless, Quickley’s performance turned some heads.

“Immanuel Quickley showed up to the Kenner League yesterday and showed why he is one of the best floor generals in college basketball,” The Kenner League Twitter account wrote. “He will be a major piece in John Calipari’s run for a National Championship in the 2019-2020 season. Looked phenomenal.”

There are even some highlights:

That three’s still looking good.

      I was really excited when he committed, I really thought he was great in aau and was going to develop faster last season. Sometimes it just takes a little bit longer for some guys to realize and become confident in their talents and trust themselves. I really believe this team is gonna have that Villanova feel to it, playing 3 guards the majority of the time.

    That step back 3 was nice. Man if he could knock down 2-4 threes a game consistently, that would be a huge contribution.

    I think Hagans and IQ were both a bit overwhelmed with everything last year. Both will have breakout seasons.
