Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.


It might not be much, but we have a Thursday early-afternoon update on Kentucky forward Reid Travis.

The Kentucky men’s basketball Twitter account sent out the following post after the team’s very first walkthrough in Nashville, indicating Travis participated…

KSR’s Matt Jones has been hearing over the last week or so that Travis was “90 percent” likely to play on Friday afternoon, and he recently said it might be even higher. With the Wildcat forward going through recent practice sessions and working out with coaches and teammates, the optimism has only grown.

At this point, I think we should all expect the Kentucky senior to suit up when the Cats take the floor at 6:00 p.m. CT tomorrow night.

    Bringing home the trophy. Reid Travis is like Zion.

      He is like Zion in some ways. They’re both male, both love basketball, both have college scholarships to play. Both are tall. Both had knee injuries. BoB is right for once, Reid IS like Zion!

      Ris isn’t the offensive player Zion is but he shoots from outside about as well, but he is as good a rebounder, and a MUCH better on the ball defender than Zion. Not even close.

    Before he went down they were playing better than anybody. People don’t realize all the stuff this guy does that doesn’t appeyon the stat sheets. Like setting screens and freeing up P.J.

      That was supposed to say appear on. Sometimes auto correct is terrible.

      Reid is great at setting screens to get our guards open, he opens up driving lanes as well, and makes it so teams can’t double PJ. He does lots of good things beyond rebounding.

    Hopefully he suits up BEFORE they take the floor, otherwise they might need to change family friendly label on the SEC tournament games.

      Slater wouldn’t have blueballs no more if he didn’t.

    I’m not sure this is definitive proof that he’s playing in the SEC Tourney. Was this at a shoot around or practice? Here is the reason I ask: Keldon is wearing his practice jersey and Reid isn’t.

    I thought I just heard the TV guys on the UF/Ark game say he would play tomorrow.

    I figured he would suit back up before all was said and done. Of course to here a few of the so called experts on here he was done. Way to man up travis from your simple playground injury. Go cats!!

    Anyone have any hotel recommendations for their pal weneedpitino seeings that I got eat up with bed bugs at the hotel I stayed at last night in Nashville. I really don’t wanna sleep in “ol blue” tonight, I took the camper top off before I made my trek to nashville. Go cats. Oh and I want the place I stay to offer free continental breakfast.

    I yelled at him several times before his injury for his inability to guard anyone at the top of the key but I have to say that when I heard his parents were putting the kaibosh on him playing I definitely got pretty salty quick like. Here’s to him making it back and us doing what this team was destined to do this season. #9

    This has been the funnest team to watch in a couple of decades in my opinion at this point in the season, I would say our ‘15 team but the Harrisons drove me absolutely nuts so I can’t say that team but if I was under a lie detector then I would have to put that team above this one but only because I can’t fool a lie detector.

    I think 15-20 min playing time for the first game will get him acclimated before going up against UT

      My sources say he’ll play at least 25 min unless the game is a blow out…
