Kentucky has John Calipari and two assistants, Tony Barbee and Joel Justus, on hand and on site for the first round of games for the Thursday night session down in North Augusta. The three Wildcat coaches are watching Hamidou Diallo in Diallo’s third game of the event with the New York City Rens.
Diallo scored 23 points, including a buzzer-beater to force overtime, in a win over Kevin Knox’s E1T1 team last night; followed by a 19-point performance Thursday morning to start the Day 2 action in another win.
