You know all those Nike EYBL teams we watch at the Peach Jam every year? Like All Ohio Red, Boo Williams, Team Takeover, Team CP3 and, Tomlin's favorite, the NJ Playaz? Well they'll all be at KBA in Lexington this weekend for those of you who can't make the drive to North Augusta every summer. That's right, they'll be playing right here in our own backyard in the EYBL's Lexington stop, the second session of the Nike circuit. Headlining this weekend's tournament, at least for Kentucky fans, will be the newly-offered Jamal Murray out of Canada. Murray blew up in the Nike Hoop Summit a couple weeks ago and earned a scholarship offer from John Calipari. He is VERY interested in the Cats and there's some chatter he may reclassify to help Kentucky out next season. Either way, Murray will be doing his thing in Lexington with Canada's CIA Bounce. They're scheduled to tip off at 8:00 pm Friday night with Boo Williams out of Virginia. He will also make his way over to campus for an unofficial visit to UK at some point. For a complete schedule of the action, check out the Lexington schedule at the Nike EYBL website. Other UK targets expected to be in action include: Harry Giles (Team CP3), Malik Monk (Wings Elite), Jayson Tatum (St. Louis Eagles) and Tyus Battle (Team Final) This is a HUGE weekend.
