Impressive as Kentucky was in three blowouts to start the season, Bam Adebayo was somewhat of a forgotten man – well, as forgotten as a 6-foot-10, 260-pound athletic specimen can be.
With a dynamic backcourt doing the lion’s share of the damage, Adebayo – due to foul trouble and a lack of touches – had been quiet. That’s a big reason why John Calipari directed his guards to force-feed the post in practice this week.
“Just making the guards throw it in,” Adebayo said. “Even though they have open shots, they still have to throw it in.”
Adebayo certainly wasn’t complaining about the policy.
