Reid Travis missing UK’s first summer practices

Reid Travis is loving life as a member of the Kentucky basketball team. He’s already gotten a glimpse of Big Blue Nation during the team’s train ride around Central Kentucky, and he is fitting in well with his new teammates off the court at the Joe Craft Center and at the Wildcat Coal Lodge.

But on the court, Travis is playing the waiting game as he sits out UK’s first practices of the summer. Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader reports Travis is unable to practice until he is admitted into a graduate school program. It will get done soon, but it hasn’t gotten done yet; therefore, the graduate transfer out of Stanford is left watching from the sideline during all on-court instruction from the staff.

Kentucky had its first three practices last week. Travis can be seen watching on in this video from the @KentuckyMBB Twitter account:

He’ll join them soon enough.

    I’m curious…would this be a problem at UNCheat?

      He would already have his final grade by now at UNCheat.

    Did the official Kentucky Basketball account seriously put “#All40” (i.e. as in undefeated)? I guess Cal isn’t the only person feeling swaggy on campus.

      I think it’s more likely that it’s saying the team will play in all 40 games it takes to be in the championship.

      I thought it was 40 as in 40 minutes that are in the games, like saying they are going all out for 40 minutes.

    Don’t have to win all 40 to win NCAA. Unless you count SEC championship also.

    I’m not sure this is ludicrous or hilarious. The guys here to play basketball, he graduated from Stanford and he has to wait to get admitted to grad school? Give me a break.
