As always, the Kentucky Blue-White Game was a full dress rehearsal. It’s obviously too early for conclusions, but Friday night’s game suggested (shouted?) the Three Tenors approach will be alive and well again this season.
With Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray off to the NBA and sophomore Isaiah Briscoe back in the fold, Kentucky showed it had reformed a new terrific trio. Freshmen De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk combined for 57 points and 10 assists.
Afterward, Monk welcomed a starring role. When asked if he and Fox formed the most athletic backcourt in the country, he smiled and said, “Ever.”
