High School Basketball: McDonald's All-American Portraits Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome one and all of the Big Blue Nation. Tonight we get to see some of our future Kentucky Wildcats in competitive action for the first time.

All four commits from Kentucky are playing for the East team. Quade Green, Nick Richards, PJ Washington, and Jarred Vanderbilt will take the floor against the West.

Other players to watch out for: center/forward Mohamed Bamba and forward Kevin Knox are still considering Kentucky and both play for the East with the rest of the Wildcats.


  • Jared Vanderbilt will have the best performance of the future committed Wildcats.
  • Over/Under Green to Bamba Alley-Oops: 3.5
  • Michael Porter, Jr. will win the MVP
  • Over/Under shots for Trae Young: 15
  • The East will win 120-116
  • Kevin Knox will be seen next to Kentucky players on the bench throughout the night
  • The annual Kentucky infomercial will dominate more than usual since Duke has taken a step back in regards to number of players in the game vs. the Wildcats

Enjoy the action and start getting excited for 2018 Kentucky basketball.
