LOOK: Louie Dampier meets the new team at satellite camp

One of my favorite things about Kentucky Basketball is the relationship between the past and the present. Today, the new crop of Cats got to meet Hall of Famer Louie Dampier, who stopped by the satellite camp at South Oldham High School:

For our younger readers, Dampier was a two-time All-American and member of Rupp’s Runts. He was also the leading scorer in ABA history, playing nine seasons with the Kentucky Colonels. Dampier was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame alongside John Calipari in 2015 and has been known to check in on the team every now and then at practice.

In other satellite camp news, Ashton Hagans and Tyrese Maxey sure can dribble:

This clip is from yesterday, but I’m still laughing:

And with that, Keion Brooks is my new favorite player.

    I’d have to have more insight before laughing at Brooks slamming away a little kids shot. I mean.. was it meant to be funny?

      Not beating up Our player up.. but without any more information, one could view that as being a big bully to the little dude.

    I remember Dampier well …..I was just a young 3rd grader at the time and he was the star on the first UK team I followed. Dampier, Riley, Akron, Conley, Argento……damn time flies.

    Hey, Mrs. TT…..respectful clarification: Louie and Cal were inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in 2015, not the College Basketball Hall of Fame.
