Future Kentucky Wildcats Shine In McDonald's All American Game


For those of you that missed it, last night marked the 36th Annual McDonald’s All American Game. And once again, the game was littered with future Kentucky Wildcats. While it wasn’t quite as star studded and jam packed with future Wildcats as it was last season, the four commits that were there certainly made their impact on the game. In fact, the most talked about player in the week leading up to the game itself is a future Wildcats…and also the shortest player there. Take a look below for the stat lines and comments on each of the four Kentucky commits.

Devin Booker- Eight points and one assist

While is wasn’t the strongest performance by a future Wildcat, as the rest of the players filled out the stat sheet much more, it was a solid performance still. Booker’s eight points came on 3-8 shooting, 2-3 from behind the arc. He was only one of two players to knock down multiple three pointers.

Trey Lyles- Eight points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steals

Trey filled out the stat sheet, that is for sure. Seemingly all over the place, there were only two players that cleaned up the glass better than Lyles. His shooting was mediocre, coming off 3-7 shooting, 0-1 from behind the arc, and 2-2 free throw shooting.

Karl Towns- Six points, five rebounds and two blocks

Karl Towns, the prize possession of the 2014 recruiting class, had a decent night. He tried to display his three point shooting, something that is a rarity for a seven footer, but missed on his only attempt. His six points came on 3-6 shooting on the night.

Tyler Ulis- Five points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals

Tyler Ulis. The most talked about player coming into the game, as his lightning quick speed allowed him to be all over the court during practice. This translated into the game, as Ulis was able to dish out magical assists and grab a few key rebounds. This all despite his 5’9″ frame. His five points came on 2-5 shooting, 1-2 from behind the arc.
