WATCH: James Wiseman EYBL Highlights in front of John Calipari

At day one of the EYBL’s opening session in Dallas, John Calipari, Joel Justus, Tony Barbee and Kenny Payne were courtside to watch Kentucky’s top target in 2019 class do work.  James Wiseman did not disappoint.

The No. 1 player in the 2019 class was 9-of-13 from the field to finish with 19 points, 9 rebounds and one block in a 97-88 EYBL debut loss.

Bluff City, the new name for Team Penny, also features UK commit D.J. Jeffries and point guard target Zion Harmon.  Harmon knocked down a pair of threes to finish with 9 points and one assist, while Jeffries had 13 points, 2 assists and a rebound.  Jeffries could not reveal where Wiseman’s recruitment currently stands.

“Honestly, no one knows with James,” Jeffries told Rivals’ Jeff Drummond after the game.  “He’s quiet.  He keeps to himself so we really don’t know.”

Jeffries also talked about his relationship with John Calipari’s coaching staff, his mentor Penny and how his game resembles Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and P.J. Washington.

That all went down last night.  This morning Kentucky’s coaches returned to watch Bluff City go toe-to-toe with Cole Anthony, the No. 5 player in the 2019 class.

    Oh, we had 3 guys on this Bluff City team we are recruiting. My question remains the same, are we recruiting anyone from the team that beat them, seems to me that is who would we want.

      You seriously think the outcome to one AAU game means that much? You can call it like you see it, but NBA scouts and college recruiters don’t see it that way.

      I’m pretty sure no one on either team is going to Louisville, so there’s that…

      He calls it without understanding what he is seeing.

    You can’t really look at it that way. By the same logic we wouldn’t have recruited Anthony Davis because his team was TERRIBLE. Clearly this team is better but the point is still the same.
