Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: The Waiting Game Edition

UK Basketball is waiting on 3 NBA decisions. UK Baseball is now awaiting its postseason fate as they’re now on the bubble.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at South Carolina Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky is awaiting a few things right now. In basketball, the Wildcats are waiting on NBA Draft decisions from PJ Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel. Vanderbilt and Gabriel seem more likely to return, Washington seems likely to leave and stay in the draft.

Those decisions have to be made by May 30, and are likely to be made before then, so this week could be a tense one.

On the baseball front, the Bat Cats are now awaiting a decision on their NCAA Tournament fate. After a loss in the first round of the SEC Tournament to the Auburn Tigers yesterday, the Wildcats are now on the bubble of the tournament.
