Wildcat Quickies: Live Practice Edition

New, 30 comments

Kentucky holds an NBA combine, the Broncos lose for the first time and more.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky Media Day Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Good Monday morning BBN, these are your Wildcat quickies. The Cats held their open NBA combine practice last night, and with over 90 NBA scouts in attendance, it was kind of a big deal.

John Calipari was very upbeat, Bam Adebayo showed star potential, De’Aaron Fox and Isaiah Briscoe showed that their battles are real, Malik Monk showed good shooting ability, and Fox showed elite speed. All-in-all, it was a great event again with a great scout turnout. Kentucky is the biggest pro factory in the nation, and it shows with this combine being held before the season.

Our very own James Streble had more comments on the practice/combine, which you can read here.
