Who is ready to watch Aaron Bradshaw make his Kentucky basketball debut? It’s coming this afternoon vs. UNC Wilmington.
John Calipari confirmed ahead of the matchup that the 7-foot-1 freshman will play 10-15 minutes against the Seahawks — and will be the team’s four next to Tre Mitchell.
Bradshaw went through a full warmup with the Wildcats, showing off his offensive versatility as a face-up big capable of knocking down shots out to three. He’ll finally get to show that off in a live game for the first time since suffering a broken foot back in the spring.
As for DJ Wagner, the freshman guard is out today with what Kentucky describes as a “lower extremity injury” and is considered day-to-day. He suffered an ankle injury in the first half of the team’s victory over No. 8 Miami (FL) earlier in the week.
One out, one in for the Wildcats against the UNCW Seahawks.
