Oscar Tshiebwe will start practicing with the team Monday

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?

    Would love some insider knowledge on if this kid ever plays a game in UK uniform, or is just an Enes Cantor practice and off to NBA.

    Almost seems like a Cal favor to Huggs to “take this distraction from our solid WVU team but prepare him for NBA during your lost season.”

    Anyone know why in the hell he left WVU? And particularly in the middle of the season? Smells bad to me.

      I think he had been dropped to 2nd team behind Culver.

    It is almost funny that this is a story. At least I could believe Enes had intentions of playing for UK and not just using us for practice.
