CoachCal.com’s “Meet the Wildcats” series rolls on, and freshmen Trey Lyles is up. The BBN doesn’t know a lot about Lyles, who has been sidelined with a mysterious leg injury, but he opens up in Eric Lindsey’s piece, talking about how eager he is to get back on the court and the hobby he has that clears his head: puzzles. Lyles says he works puzzles all the time and once put together a 3,000-piece puzzle of Elvis.
Lyles also talks about why he chose Kentucky over Louisville, and I think you’ll like his answer:
“Coach Cal just stuck out more to me for what he’s able to do and how much he cares for us,” Lyles said. “I came here quite a few more times than I went to Louisville, so I just felt more comfortable here. Just the family atmosphere. All the guys get along. Everybody’s always together. The fans really helped out a lot. Having great people that back you really helps out a lot.”
