The puzzle was missing just one piece. Although a small piece, if solved it would heighten expectations and the realization that the 2015-2016 team could be special…very special.
Coach Cal found the missing piece in graduate transfer Reid Travis. Travis was scheduled to make two visits after his graduation from Stanford on Sunday, Kentucky and Villanova. The latter never happened. Travis is now a Kentucky Wildcat.
Reid will provide an inside presence beside Washington. He is a rebounding machine and should lead UK in that category next season. He is strong and never gives up on a play. Probably the most important factor is experience. He has played the college game and faced elite competition.
The roster of the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats
Calipari has not had this much depth assembled on a team since 2014-2015. That team had the advantage of a pre-season trip to the Bahamas. This team will travel to the Bahamas in August. Let the comparisons begin.
This team has alpha dogs, shooters, rebounders and veterans. The perfect combination for a run to a championship.
One of the hottest tickets of the upcoming season will be the Kentucky vs. Duke game in Indianapolis on November 6th. Make sure you vote that day then get ready…its going to be fun!
