Quickies: Farewell Sacha Edition

Killeya-Jones bids Lexington farewell and more.

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Kentucky vs Alabama Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

Sacha Killeya-Jones has bid Lexington farewell after two seasons at Kentucky.

Killeya-Jones had an expanded role in 2018, but similar to 2017, never really found the prominent role he expected to be in when he came to Kentucky from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, as a five-star recruit. He’ll certainly have a lot of interest from around the country as he finds his next home.
