The Kentucky Basketball team has arrived in the Bahamas, and the Wildcats appear to be having a lot of fun.
As you’d expect, the Wildcats didn’t take long to find the giant waterslides.
The guys were terrified to go down “The Abyss.” To their credit, most of them — we emphasize most — went down. Props to @IQ_GodSon for mustering up the courage. That scream though #BigBlueBahamas pic.twitter.com/YRwRbJSXXi— Kentucky Basketball (@KentuckyMBB) August 6, 2018
Some guys were excited to hit the water.
Others ... not so much.
Tyler Herro won this race, and I think he jumped the gun.
Haha! They’re here and you can already see how close they’ve become! This is gonna be a special season! pic.twitter.com/zq0mES7tAI— ctgalloway (@ctgalloway) August 6, 2018
I think the lazy river was more of the right speed for everyone.
It’s not all fun and games for the Wildcats, who are set to play the Bahamas National Team Wednesday. They still have to find time to practice in those massive ballrooms that have been converted to basketball courts.
Surely John Calipari will find plenty of time to prepare the Wildcats for their four games this week, and still give them time to enjoy waterslides and tropical weather.
If nothing else, Immanuel Quickley’s abs look ready for battle:
Kentucky opens play in the Bahamas trip Wednesday at 7 p.m. on the SEC Network.
