Daimion Collins and Nolan Hickman will be coming to Lexington next season to suit up for the Kentucky Wildcats, but before that, the duo will play in the Iverson Classic.
Rosters for the fifth-annual event were announced this week, which is slated to take place May 7-8 in Memphis.
Hickman and Collins will be on the team coached by Rasheed Wallace and Bonzi Wells.
The incoming freshmen were selected as McDonald’s All-Americans but that game won’t be played this year due to COVID-19 concerns.
Collins and Hickman are the 11th and 12th future Wildcats named to the Iverson Classic, joining Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (2017), Quade Green (2017), Jarred Vanderbilt (2017) PJ Washington (2017), Tyler Herro (2018), Immanuel Quickley (2018), Kahlil Whitney (2019), Brandon Boston Jr. (2020), Terrence Clarke (2020) and Lance Ware (2020).
Collins and Hickman are expected to play key roles for Kentucky next year, so this will be a good opportunity to see the two of them beforehand. We’ll keep you posted on streaming information for the event.
