The first major domino of the Kentucky basketball offseason has fallen, a real step toward figuring out what the roster will look like in 2023-24.
Ugonna Onyenso, the program’s prized long-term project piece with unlimited defensive upside, is returning to Lexington for his sophomore campaign. The decision comes after entering the transfer portal back on April 5, ultimately deciding to withdraw a week later on April 12.
He announced his decision to return on Wednesday.
