Wednesday Quickies: Keion Brooks Edition

Brooks confirmed that he’ll be returning to Lexington for a sophomore season

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It’s now official, as Keion Brooks will be returning to Kentucky for a sophomore season.

It was unofficially reported earlier this week via his dad, but the news became official yesterday, giving John Calipari a solid building block for next season with what is expected to be a massive roster turnover. While we wait on other draft decisions, it is possible that Brooks could be the only player on next year’s roster with any experience of playing at Kentucky.

In his freshman season, Brooks just scratched the surface of his potential, averaging 4.5 points and 3,2 rebounds per game while playing 15 minutes per game. His most memorable game was likely the last game of the season, where he played a key role in the comeback win against Florida, scoring 10 points including two huge three-pointers.

With an offseason to hone his skills, Brooks has the potential to be one of the top players in the conference next season where he seems a likely option to slot in as the 4 next season in a Kentucky offense that will likely look to run early and often.

Bringing Brooks back was huge for Kentucky and the BBN should be thrilled to see what he can do as a sophomore.
