Former Kentucky Wildcats PJ Washington, Keldon Johnson, and Tyler Herro had some positive things to say about the incoming freshmen that will don the blue and white this year.
“They’re a lot more skilled than I thought they were,” Washington told the Herald Leader. “Tyrese, he’s definitely good. Kahlil’s pretty good. Honestly, everybody’s pretty good. Johnny can shoot it. Keion is super bouncy, really wiry and athletic.
“I just feel as long as they play together and bond off the court, they’ll be good on the court.”
That trio, along with Immanuel Quickley and EJ Montgomery, took on a squad that consisted of Tyrese Maxey, Kahlil Whitney, Johnny Juzang, and Keion Brooks, winning a best-of-11 series 6-2.
And while the former Cats had some good things to say about the 2019-2020 team, Tyler Herro advised fans to be patient while this team goes through a learning process, something that’s difficult for us fans to remember year-to-year.
He’s right. There will be growing pains. Especially early on, we will likely see a team that, talent-wise, Kentucky should defeat by 25-30 points, keep the game competitive into the second half and Kentucky will come away with a 10-15 point win.
But like most Cal teams at Kentucky, they’ll hit their stride in January and February, and likely be a contender for a national championship in March. This team certainly has the potential to do it.
