Thursday Quickies: Media Day Edition

The basketball Wildcats will face the media today

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

Kentucky Basketball Media Day is today, as the players will take questions from several media members.

What can we expect this year? Maybe another Jerry Tipton vs. John Calipari feud? Remember Coach, it’s Media Day, not Coach Day.

Media Day usually provides an assortment of good quotes and information from the players and coaches. We will probably hear some new information on Keldon Johnson’s injury that he suffered at the end of Pro Day on Sunday, and if he will miss any of the preseason exhibitions or scrimmages.

Make sure you stay here and we will bring you updates and news from Media Day as it comes out.
