Kahlil Whitney probably didn’t imagine his freshman season going like this. The former top 15 recruit hasn’t scored since December 21 (two points vs. Ohio State) and is averaging 0.5 rebounds and 7.5 minutes over the last four games; however, the Kentucky coaching staff continues to praise his attitude and effort in practice. Today, Whitney…

One of the biggest question marks on this Kentucky team so far is Kahlil Whitney. The 6’6″ 210 lbs. freshman wing came to Lexington as one of the highest-ranked recruits in the class and is undeniably an athletic freak, but has yet to find a way to channel that into productive basketball. In the Cats’…

Over behind The Athletic‘s pay wall today, you can find a good story from Sam Vecenie, the site’s NBA draft expert, on what he learned from being in Las Vegas around several NBA scouts last week.

We’re going to learn a lot about this Kentucky team in the next few weeks, but John Calipari knows one thing for certain: they will not reach their potential unless Kahlil Whitney takes a major step forward. Calipari spent most of today’s press conference talking about the freshman, who he says is the key to…

Just when people may have started to question this team’s toughness (as John Calipari often does), Kahlil Whitney dislocated his finger. If you weren’t watching closely, you could have easily missed it, as there was no stoppage of play. Instead of calling a timeout or even heading to the bench, Whitney ran to the other…

Immanuel Quickley was a surprise scratch tonight, sitting out the Utah Valley game after suffering a chest injury in practice. Thankfully, Kentucky was able to win without him and EJ Montgomery, who sat out his third game with an ankle injury, but if the Cats want to resemble the team that beat Michigan State a…

After a sluggish exhibition opener, Kahlil Whitney upped the intensity in his game (and shoe game) against Kentucky State. The freshman forward’s colorful shoes could be noticed from the top of Rupp’s rafters. The custom Nikes were inspired by Spongebob Squarepants, the Nickelodeon  invertebrate that lives in a pineapple under the season. “It was a…
