When Nick Richards recently stepped into the spotlight, his girlfriend was there to bust his chops.
Ahead of Kentucky’s road trip to Georgia, ESPN recorded a segment of “94 Feet with Jay Bilas” featuring Mr. Richards. Before the interview Leah Edmond, the star UK volleyball player and Richards’ better half, tipped-off Bilas.
Bilas asked Richards if he ever has to dust off Edmond’s trophies. The UK center smiled, then denied it.
Straight lies @iamnickrichards

To prove her point, Edmond brought Richards’ feather duster to the game.
Kentucky volleyball great Leah Edmond shows me the feather duster Nick Richards uses to dust her trophies. Richards will have some trophies of his own to dust after his season. #goodsports @leahedmond13 @UKAthletics @KentuckyMBB pic.twitter.com/MWRBuDd8wX

Shout out to Big Nick for being a good sport. It helps that Richards is killing it on the court. Over the last four games he’s averaging 16 points and 10 rebounds per game. Not too shabby.
