A stalwart of the Tubby-era of UK basketball is getting back into the game in Lexington. Erik Daniels, who played for the Cats from 2000 to 2004, is set to join up with an overhauled girls’ basketball staff at Bryan Station. Jerry Tipton had words with Bryan Station’s new head coach, Brian Hall, about Daniels getting on board:
“First of all, he’s a first-class individual,” Hall said Saturday. “. . . He’s the type of guy who’s going to be a great model for the kids. He’s someone who’s willing to work really hard. A lot of times, kids don’t always realize that people who are real exceptional athletes or musicians or whatever field, it’s not just about showing up. It’s about hard work and repetition.”
