Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA: More summer league action today

Today is day two of the Orlando Summer League games and there are a few former Wildcats representing today.

Nerlens Noel and Marquis Teague were the headliners yesterday as Noel had 19 points in his NBA debut of any kind. Teague had 14 points and 6 assists for the Nets. Both of those players, along with DeAndre Liggins are in action today so head over to NBA TV if you have it. Here is today’s schedule of ex-Cats:


Memphis Grizzlies vs. Detroit Pistons (Liggins) @ 3:00 p.m.

Philadelphia 76ers ( Noel) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder @ 5:00 p.m.

Miami Heat vs. Brooklyn Nets ( Teague) @ 7:00 p.m.

For his effort yesterday, Noel was named the “Rookie of the Day” .  I thought Nerlens looked good in his first game action, but still looks as if he could stand to add some more bulk though.  It’s definitely good to see the big guy back though.  It’s been too long.  Check out yesterday’s effort here.
