There is excitement building for the 2019-2020 basketball season, despite the opening game being five months away.
John Calipari continued to hype up the Big Blue Nation yesterday with his press conference and the possibility Kentucky could add arguably the top grad transfer in the country.
Cal seems to really like this team early on and it is easy to see why. Kentucky returns their starting point guard in Ashton Hagans, two big men with incredible potential in EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards, a freshman coming off a solid season in Immanuel Quickley, and a highly-ranked recruiting class.
This team has a lot of versatility, a lot of potential lineup combinations, and a good mix of players who can do different things. Basketball is a long way away, but with this team assembled and the potential to add another piece, Kentucky is looking like a team that will once again be in the hunt for a national championship.

Camp season for the players,
Someone in the know just told me Tyler Herro "blew away" the Celtics in his workout this morning. Finished the workout having made 80 of 100 three point attempts. From all accounts, Herro seems to be picking up a LOT of positive buzz throughout the draft process— Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) June 4, 2019
If true, awesome for Tyler!
Cal seems to like the group he’s assembled thus far.
With a few potential options out there, Cal is keeping that door open.
