Tomorrow is not only UK vs. Florida and Zion Williamson’s announcement, it’s Tyler Herro’s birthday and he’s choosing to spend it in Lexington. The UK signee just tweeted that he will be in Lexington tomorrow, presumably to take in the Florida game and College GameDay festivities:
Lexington tomorrow!! #BBN

After returning from a calf injury in late December, Herro picked up right where he left off. Last weekend, he scored 38 and 42 points in back-to-back games, bringing his total number of games this season with 30+ points to seven. Right now, he’s averaging 29.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 3.6 assists.
Yet, Herro was not named to the McDonald’s All-American Game earlier this week, a snub that clearly stung. As John Calipari predicted, Herro seems poised to use it as fuel to get better.
“Disappointed Tyler Herro wasn’t selected,” Cal tweeted earlier this week. “He’s certainly deserving, especially with the last year he’s had. I know he will use this as fuel!”
Enjoy your time in Lexington, Tyler. Hopefully you’ll bring us some good luck in more ways than one.
