It took over a month for Kentucky to win back-to-back games. But now that the Wildcats have some feel for winning, more help is on the way as they head to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators on Saturday.
Sophomore forward Keion Brooks Jr., Kentucky’s only returning scholarship player from last season, has been medically cleared from a left leg injury and is expected to play against Florida (5-2, 2-1 in SEC).
Brooks, who played in 31 games as a freshman, averaged 4.5 points and 3.2 rebounds but shot 47.2 percent from the field. He could provide another spark for Kentucky (3-6, 2-0), which beat Mississippi State and Vanderbilt after starting the season 1-6 for the first time since 1926, according to ESPN.
