Kentucky basketball’s annual Pro Day was a massive success, with over 80 NBA personnel tuning in to scout the 2020-21 Wildcats virtually, along with the entire Big Blue Nation having the opportunity to see the team for the first time leading up to the season.

As part of the Pro Day, each player on the Kentucky roster goes through testing to find out their specific updated measurements, which are then distributed to NBA representatives, scouts, and the media.

So how did the Wildcats do? What were some of the noteworthy numbers and measurements?
