Tom Hart believes Kentucky Basketball will be “national championship-level good”

That sounds nice!

John Calipari Jason Marcum - Sea of Blue

The hype around Lexington this weekend is real. With LSU football in town for the first time in 15 years, the fun doesn't stop for the Big Blue Nation after Saturday night's game as the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team will have its pro day on Sunday night.

The event will be televised on the SEC Network and will start at 5:30 pm ET. On the call tomorrow night is a Kentucky fan-favorite in Tom Hart, and he joined Paul Finebaum’s show on Friday to give a little preview to what might be ahead for this UK team.

Spoiler alert: He thinks they will be really good.

“I just came from John Calipari’s basketball practice.” he told Finebaum. “It was, they’re going to be really good, like national championship-level good.

“This is an elite team. I don’t know how he’s going to play everybody. He’s got 12 dudes who could play for anybody. That good!”

Coming from a guy who has covered a lot of Kentucky basketball games, this is always something good to hear.

Tomorrow night's pro day will be like it has been in years past as the team will run through shooting drills, testing (measurable’s), and also scrimmage. It will also have scouts from all 30 NBA teams in attendance.

We are now officially a month away from this Kentucky team taking the floor at Madison Square Garden to take on Duke. The season is approaching quickly folks, and tomorrow night, we get the first live look at how this team might operate.
