Trae Young exploded for 40 yesterday, and has made it known that he aspires to win an MVP award at one of the EYBL sessions. Kentucky has made him a priority from the very beginning, and he will definitely be taking a look at the Cats before he makes his college decision he said.
Today Young had just 12 points and 3 assists in a loss to the Bradley Beal coached St. Louis Eagles. It wasn’t his best performance, but he will get a chance to bounce back with another game tonight at 6:30. He is a consistent shooter with a feisty attitude on the court, and he is a prime recruiting target for Calipari in the 2017 class.
Early Sunday results from other UK recruits:
DeAndre Ayton: 18 points, 8 rebounds
Kevin Knox: 14 points, 14 rebounds
Gary Trent Jr.: 18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 steals
Lonnie Walker: 9 points, 2 rebounds
Hamidou Diallo: 12 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists
John Petty Jr.: 8 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists
