UK Roommates Tell-All: Wildcats air dirty laundry on their roommates

Before we get to know Kentucky’s new crop of talent on the floor during the upcoming college basketball season, we better get to know them off of the floor. And there is no better person to ask about each Wildcat than their own roommate in the Wildcat Coal Lodge, where two basketball players are paired up in a suite with a single bathroom dividing their two individual living spaces.

This year’s roommate pairings in the Lodge are as follows:

PJ Washington/Reid Travis
Quade Green/Nick Richards
Tyler Herro/Keldon Johnson
Ashton Hagans/EJ Montgomery
Brad Calipari/Jemarl Baker
Zan Payne/Immanuel Quickley

In the preseason one-on-one interviews with the team, we set aside a couple of minutes with each player to get scoop on their roommate and their other teammates. Some were more open and forthright than others, and it taught us a lot about the players outside of basketball:

Who is the messiest player on the team?

According to Immanuel Quickley, two of the messiest players in the history of Kentucky basketball are on this current team. Another player on the team keeps his room spotless.

Which player is crazy?

One player believes his roommate is crazy. His roommate says they’re not so different.

Which two roommates sing and dance?

Two of the newcomers claim they’re a good singer and a good dancer.

Does Nick Richards take long, lonely walks?

We got conflicting answers.

      His scruff is straight up weird. One day he will look back at this and wonder what the hell he was thinking. And it just doesn’t pair well with the bowl cut. Its probably a good thing his dad is who he is…and the fact he is wealthy…otherwise, he’d get no tail at all.

    In all fairness “a long walk” for Quade is 4 steps for Nick ?

    Long walks, at least when I was in college, usually meant something more like taking a long walk outside to….enjoy Mother Nature if you catch my direct.
