As many times as you sat down and cheered for Kentucky big man Oscar Tshiebwe last year, did you ever think what it would be like to play defense on him? Tshiebwe is the reigning unanimous player of the year across all six categories after averaging 17.4 points and 15.1 rebounds per game.
With his second season playing for the Wildcats on the horizon, Kentucky Sports Radio asked a few opponents about how hard it is defend the star big man.
The KSR team spoke with seven representatives of Southeastern Conference teams, which were the following schools and players.
- Arkansas & Kamani Johnson
- Auburn & Jaylin Williams
- Florida & Colin Castleton
- Georgia & Kario Oquendo
- South Carolina & G.G Jackson
- Tennessee & Josiah Jordan-James
- Texas A&M & Henry Coleman III
The consensus was as you might have imagined — with every team giving a healthy explanation of just how great Tshiebwe is and the culture head coach John Calipari has built around him. Visit this link to read all seven responses.
