Wednesday Quickies: Looking Ahead to Basketball Edition

The 2019-2020 season is months away, but excitement is building.

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.
