Evan Daniels of Scout.com confirms the news, which is huge for Kentucky. Briscoe averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game last season, and his return makes UK’s backcourt one of the best in the country. Briscoe will bring a veteran presence and some much-needed defensive intensity to next year’s squad, which can now feature a three-guard lineup of De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, and Briscoe.
Great, great news. You’re next, Marcus.
