It appears Kentucky’s frontcourt will play one man down tonight at Texas A&M.
Sacha Killeya-Jones may not have traveled with the team to College Station. The sophomore forward did not appear in any pictures or videos posted from shoot-around by the team’s social media accounts. While the Cats were on the court, Killeya-Jones posted a picture of himself in a suit and tie on his Instagram story. Killeya-Jones recently lost his “Pop Pop,” who he has honored on his sneakers.
In the first meeting with A&M, Killeya-Jones had 4 points and 5 rebounds in 19 minutes of action. Nick Richards, Jarred Vanderbilt and P.J. Washington will be tasked to slow down the SEC’s top two rebounders, Tyler Davis and Robert Williams.
A UK spokesman confirms Killeya-Jones will be unavailable tonight as he attends his paternal grandfather’s funeral. Our thoughts are with SKJ and his family during this difficult time.
