The 2018-19 Kentucky Wildcats traveled in style to the final stop on the John Calipari Satellite Camp Tour on Saturday, concluding the month-long event in Monticello, Ky. Calipari and his team spent the latter part of the morning and early afternoon at Wayne County High School, where students in kindergarten through sixth grade got a chance to interact with the men’s basketball coaching staff and a handful of UK players.
Saturday’s event marked the eighth installment of the tour around the Commonwealth, following visits to Bardstown and Elizabethtown (June 4), London (June 5), Louisville (June 6), Union (June 7), Danville (June 14), and Frankfort (June 24). The Cats’ helicopter excursion to Monticello was preceded by a train ride to Frankfort last week.
Calipari also made time for a photo with former Wildcat Ray Mills, who played under head coach Adolph Rupp from 1954-1957. Mills averaged 4.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game as a senior, helping to guide Kentucky to its 17th Southeastern Conference title.
