Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post was on hand for what he described as “one of the fiercest, most intense games of this college basketball season.” It was a game between two of the best teams in the country: Kentucky’s blue platoon and Kentucky’s white platoon. It was played in a UK basketball practice in the Joe Craft Center late last month.
The teams played in a gym with a handful of spectators, no stands, no scouts and no television crew. Nine of the players on the court had made the McDonald’s All-America team in high school. All 10 will likely play in the NBA. It could have been a spectacle. Here, they call it practice. Did you gawk at Duke-Wisconsin? You should have seen Kentucky vs. Kentucky.
That’s only the first paragraph of a very long and well-written piece on your favorite basketball team.
