Two future Cats played in front of Calipari last night


John Calipari traveled to North Carolina last night to watch two of his next stars go head-to-head in the HighSchoolOT Holiday Invitational Tournament.

On one side, Bam Adebayo, a five-star power forward and UK signee, controlled the paint.

On the other, De’Aaron Fox, the next point guard in the Calipari lineage, scored at will.

Adebayo’s High Point team got the best of Fox’s Cypress Lakes with a 91-63 victory in front of their future college head coach. Fox led all scorers with 29 points in the game, while Adebayo¬†had 26 points, 14 rebounds, and four steals.

Afterward, Cypress Lakes head coach Emmanuel Olatunbosun predicted a national championship for Kentucky in 2016-17.

Enjoy these highlights from the game:

    Bam is going to be impressive to watch next season. It is going to be nice to see a big guy with some muscle (other than Alex) that can bang inside and Bam looks like a steamroller! Is it too late to recruit the white boy wearing #30? We still have the spring to sign him, right? This year still has a long way to go and lots of potential for a deep run in March, but I foresee more “40-0” ramblings for the 2016-2017 team. The incoming Freshman (4 possibly 5 top 10 recruits) along with the return of Humphrey’s, Wynyard, Willis, Hawkins, Mulder, Matthews and possibly Skal (this kid is nowhere close to NBA ready at this point – give him another year to bulk up and gain some experience) brings a perfect mix of upper class experience and incoming raw talent. UK will once again have the #1 team in the country on the floor and the #2 team in the country sitting on the bench. This season looks promising, but next season already looks incredible on paper.

    Bam is pretty impressive on his videos but I’ve yet to see him play against any size. In his videos it’s a man against boys. I’m not saying he doesn’t look like he’ll be a great freshman, but it will be a different game when he gets to the next level.

    Fox? The kid could play at the college level right now. Good size, speed, quickness, the ability to take you off the dribble and shoot from all ranges. Looking forward to them playing at UK.
