It was all Blue in Kentucky Basketball’s Blue-White scrimmage in Rupp Arena. Even when John Calipari, who watched from the crowd, mixed up the personnel and rotations, Blue continued to shine all the way to its 108-80 victory.
Coached by Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman, the Blue team started Sahvir Wheeler, TyTy Washington, Bryce Hopkins, Daimion Collins, and Oscar Tshiebwe, all new faces to the program. Tshiebwe proved to be the game’s MVP with his 25 points and 21 rebounds, all for the Blue squad.
TyTy Washington was another crowd pleaser with his 24 points—12 while playing for Blue, another 12 while wearing White. Like Tshiebwe, Washington too had a double-double with 10 assists to go with his high-scoring night. Lance Ware, Sahvir Wheeler, and Bryce Hopkins also joined the double-double fun.
On the losing end, the White team was coached by Bruiser Flint and Jai Lucas with a starting five of Davion Mintz, Dontaie Allen, Kellan Grady, Keion Brooks Jr., and Lance Ware, four of last year’s returners plus the four-time All-Atlantic 10 transfer. Grady ended up playing twice as many minutes for the Blue after the reshuffle.
