The Quade Green glasses fad is reaching new heights.
In case you missed it, Green donned a swaggy pair of protective eyewear during Saturday’s win over Virginia Tech, which had everyone abuzz for not just how crazy they looked, but also how well he played with them.
In what was easily the biggest home game of UK’s season thus far, the freshman point guard played one of his best games of the season. Green finished with 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting, including two critical baskets down the stretch, all while donning a pair of black glasses due to his eye injury.
That has inspired John Calipari and his Cats to start wearing those same glasses in practice from now on:
In honor of Quade and how well he played with the sunglasses on Saturday, we’ve decided we’re going to practice the same way. We’re going to petition the NCAA to protect our eyes! pic.twitter.com/BEcsWXnc6j— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) December 18, 2017
If UK doesn't give the entire Student Section these glasses for the UL game, then I don't know what to tell them https://t.co/HuHKUVm3nD— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) December 18, 2017
The movement has begun.
