Earlier this evening the Elite 24 3 point and dunk contests took place, and we have a 720p HD replay of the events ready for you to watch. Either click the image above or the text below to watch it right now. Also, check back late Saturday night or early Sunday morning for a replay of the actual game.
On Friday night, the Jordan Brand Classic high school basketball all-star game aired on the tele, and we’ve put together a replay for you to enjoy in 720p60 format.
2016-2017 Cats “Bam” Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Wenyen Gabriel, and Malik Monk all participated in the game, as did UK target Marques Bolden. I won’t give any major spoilers of the game, but this one was definitely more entertaining to watch as a UK fan than the recent other two all-star games (apart from the announcers for most of the game).
Wednesday night was the 2016 McDonald’s All American game featuring most of the nation’s best basketball high school seniors–including 4 future Kentucky players (Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, and Sacha Killeya-Jones) as well as a couple of UK recruiting targets in Marques Bolden and Jarrett Allen. A replay of the game is ready to go in 720p60 HD format using the link below.
What did you think of the game? Who was the best player overall, and which future Cat looked the best in your opinion?
On Tuesday afternoon, a one hour scrimmage of the East vs. West McDonald’s All American teams was televised, and we have a replay of the “game” ready for you to watch below. This is the first glimpse you get to see of the future Wildcats playing on the same team as Bam Adebayo, De’Aaron Fox, and Sacha Killeya-Jones are on the East team and Malik Monk and UK target Marques Bolden are on the West team.
The actual game that counts will air on Wednesday night, and I’ll do my best to have a replay of it available on the site ASAP (most likely sometime in the middle of the night).
Edrice “Bam” Adebayo, the #6 overall player for the 2016-2017 basketball season (according to ESPN) announced this morning on Mike and Mike that he will be attending the University of Kentucky next season!
I put together a video of the entire announcement for you to enjoy below. Coach Cal even joins in on the phone after Bam’s announcement!
If you aren’t familiar with Bam’s game, he has a similar build, athleticism, and game to Dwight Howard. Here is a Mixtape of him in action.
This announcement was first heard about last night–it kind of came out of nowhere. Until new rumors swirled around last night, he was more or less considered a lock to NC State as he is from North Carolina and is really good friends with Dennis Smith (they’ve played together since the 8th grade)… but you can never count Cal out!
So that makes four commitments for Kentucky for the 2016-2017 season in Sacha Killeya-Jones, Wenyen Gabriel, De’Aaron Fox, and now Bam Adebayo. There are still several recruits out there with UK scholarships–Malik Monk, Thon Maker, Rawle Alkins, Kobi Simmons, Marques Bolden, Jarrett Allen, Udoka Azubuike, and Michael Cage Jr. Who’s next?
De’Aaron Fox, the #1 PG for the 2016-2017 class (and #3 player overall according to 247 Sports Composite Rankings) publicly announced today on the ESPNU signing day special that he will be attending the University of Kentucky next season!
I put together a video of the entire announcement for you to enjoy below.
If you aren’t familiar with Fox’s game, you need to watch this Hoopmixtape that was released earlier today. The kid is going to be special at UK.
So that makes three commitments for Kentucky for the 2016-2017 season in Sacha Killeya-Jones, Wenyen Gabriel, and now De’Aaron Fox (four if you count Tai Wynyard, who is expected to join this year’s squad in December). There are still several recruits out there with UK scholarships–Malik Monk, Thon Maker, Edrice “Bam” Adebayo, Rawle Alkins, Kobi Simmons, Marques Bolden, Jarrett Allen, Udoka Azubuike, and Michael Cage Jr. Who’s next?
