Things haven’t been going great in the summer league for former Kentucky Wildcats guard Isaiah Briscoe. He hadn’t been playing much and when he was able to get in the game he wasn’t showing what he is capable of doing.

And then last night Briscoe showcased his skills and was able to give a taste of what he was did at Kentucky.

I’m not sure if he will ever be in the NBA. His best bet may be to go overseas and have a lucrative career there. But one thing is for sure, he’s going to give it his all while he has the chance.

Tweet of the Day:

Quickley loves John Calipari, and it looks like only a matter of time before UK lands it’s next point guard.
