Alex Poythress has had a front-row seat for one of the greatest rides in college basketball history.
Sitting on the bench and traveling with the team as Kentucky has rolled unbeaten through the 2014-15 season, Poythress has been there every step of the way. It’s a spot most UK fans would love to be in.
For Poythress – whose season was cut short in early December by a torn ACL – it hasn’t been easy. Every day is a reminder that he’s supposed to be on the floor.
But given his current situation – rehabbing from reconstructive surgery – he’s thankful the top-ranked Wildcats still count him as a teammate.
