Kentucky Wildcats guard Brad Calipari concluded another overseas basketball trip, as he was apart of the Global Sports Academy team that played five games in Europe.

Calipari averaged 13.2 points and seven assists per game, helping to lead his team to a 3-2 record during the eight-day trip.

Calipari recorded 10 points and five assists in game one and eight points and five assists in game two. He then dropped a double-double with 17 points and 11 assists in game three. In game four he had 14 points and eight assists, and in game five he scored 17 points and dropped six assists.

Two of the team’s games were against Cologne and Leverkusen.

The rising junior put up similar numbers when the Global Sports Academy traveled to Croatia last year, as he averaged 14.3 points and 6.5 assists.

Calipari was one of 10 college players on his team, which was coached by Bucknell assistant Joe Meehan.
