The brother of one familiar face will be suiting up for another familiar face next season.

Gilgeous-Alexander, brother of former Kentucky guard Shai, committed to the Purple Aces over scholarship offers from South Carolina, Fresno State, and New Mexico.
Here are some of his highlights:
Oddly enough, Evansville is scheduled to play Kentucky in the regular season this year, meaning the Wildcats will get to face both McCarty and Gilgeous-Alexander at Rupp Arena next season.
According to McCarty, the matchup is scheduled for the beginning of November.
“November 11, 12 or 13th of 2019-20, we will play them,” the former Kentucky forward said. “That’s what the plan is.”
