Three Future Wildcats are Naismith Semifinalists

Three of Calipari’s 2016 signees — De’Aaron Fox, Bam Adebayo and Malik Monk — make up the list of ten semifinalists for the Naismith Player of the Year Award.

Even though Calipari has had unprecedented recruiting success at Kentucky, he’s never had a Naismith Award Winner.  The last Wildcat to win the award was Ron Mercer, back in 1995.  One Kentuckian made the list; Erin Boley of Elizabethtown was selected as a semifinalist for the women’s award.

The winners will be announced on March 10.
