Isaac has an amazing voice, and he showed that off during a great piece on him by the Courier-Journal.

Isaac Humphries may not see thew floor much for the Kentucky Wildcats, but there's at least one thing he does better than any of the guys getting minutes over him.

No, it's not rebounding, blocking shots or anything you'll find in a box score. It's Humphries' voice that has him in a great piece story by the Louisville Courier-Journal. It features the 7-foot Australian playing the piano inside UK’s Schmidt Vocal Arts Center while singing Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" and Adele's "Hello" about as good as any cover band could hope to.

"I don’t want to be known for one thing that I do, but everything that I do. You only get one life to live, so live it," Humphries said. "I like that. I thought it applied to me with basketball and singing and everything. I feel like I have so much more than just basketball. Why not do a lot, do everything? You only get one shot."

On the court, Humphries has appeared in eight games while averaging 2.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game as a freshman. While he has rarely seen the floor, he did play critical minutes during UK's big win over then-No. 5 Duke while chipping in two blocks.

While Humphries has a bright basketball career ahead of him, it's great seeing he has another love off the court that he can enjoy and pursue long after his basketball days are over.
