As we approach the finish line to the worst season in Kentucky Basketball history, it’s hard not to look ahead to next year. Oscar Tshiebwe arrived on campus a few weeks back, but according to John Calipari, the 6’9″ 260 lbs. West Virginia transfer has yet to practice with the team. That changes on Monday.
“He hasn’t practiced with us yet but when I see him and his body and his toughness, I’m like, is there any way — is that transfer rule immediately? Can we do that now? Can he come play now? But he’ll start practicing on Monday. But then we leave to go to Nashville [for the Vanderbilt game], but he’ll get in one day where we’ll get a chance to see where he is. It’ll be good for these kids to go against him every day just because of physicality and athleticism, quickness to the ball, all that stuff.”
ICYMI, last week UK put out some pictures of Tshiebwe in his new Kentucky jersey.
To echo Cal, can he come play now?
