While the focus has been on adding frontcourt help for the 2020-2021 season, it seems that Kentucky is looking into the possibility of adding another backcourt player.
Yesterday, we learned that Kentucky reached out to Nike Sibande, a 6’4 guard who announced yesterday that he was transferring from Miami (OH) after averaging nearly 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists for the Redhawks last season.
Sibande would be a traditional transfer, but as we know, we’re waiting to see what the NCAA will do about passing the one-time transfer waiver. If the NCAA does not pass it for the coming season, Sibande could provide a veteran presence in practice and in the locker room for a backcourt that will be made up of multiple freshmen along with graduate transfer Davion Mintz.
This is an interesting development. There hasn’t been a lot of rumbling about Kentucky looking for additional backcourt help, but Sibande has a lot of talent that could make a huge difference for next year or even the following year.
Sibande is looking at several schools, so Kentucky is no certainty, but by the looks of it, the Cats seem to be squarely in the mix.
