There is a fight for playing time at every position on Kentucky’s roster, but two guys are beginning to separate themselves from the pack as the regular season gets closer.
When asked if any player has emerged above the rest, John Calipari named Reid Travis and PJ Washington as two standouts, who, coincidentally, have been matched up against each other in most practices. Travis and Washington are very similar players with very similar skillsets, on the same path to prove to the NBA they can play bigger and more versatile. They’re also roommates and the two most-experienced players on the roster, and the Cats’ only preseason All-SEC selections.
But don’t sleep on Sophomore Nick Richards. He’s in the mix, too.
After Calipari spoke highly of Travis and Washington, he said,”Nick has been so good. Who has anybody like a Nick? There are none. He’s it.”
Cal then said there will be times when he plays all three bigs together.
Good luck to whoever is trying to rebound against them.
