Kentucky Basketball recruits shine in USA win over Spain: Box Score and Highlights

Quickley had his best game in FIBA play to help the U.S. medal.

USA Basketball

The Americans have claimed a bronze medal after defeating Spain, 96-72.

It was another ho-hum performance for the Kentucky players, who end FIBA play on a bit of a sour note after Saturday’s struggle vs Canada. Against Spain, PJ Washington was once again plagued with foul trouble and spent much of the game on the bench. He finished with six points on 2-of-3 shooting and no rebounds in 14:29 of action.

Hamidou Diallo was held in check as he scored just nine points on 3-of-6 shooting. Foul trouble limited him to just under 16 minutes of play Sunday as he also chipped in four boards and two assists.

It was good seeing both Washington and Diallo improve their shooting, but this two-game stretch certainly wasn’t how they hoped to end FIBA play.

The good news is several UK recruiting targets fared well vs Spain. Immanuel Quickley, who could be UK’s first pledge in the 2018 class, finished with 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting with three boards and an assist.

Cameron Reddish, a five-star wing and top-five prospect in 2018, finished with 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting with three assists and three rebounds. Getting to play as a point forward in FIBA play has helped John Calipari make a big impression on Reddish.
