John Calipari and UK assistant coach Tony Barbee showed up at the Primetime Shootout in New Jersey on Sunday evening, as expected, to watch Wildcats signee Nick Richards and several other top basketball recruits.
Richards’ team played Sunday night against Archbishop Molloy (N.Y), a squad that features center Moses Brown, the No. 6 overall player in the 2018 class, and point guard Cole Anthony, the No. 7 overall recruit in the class of 2019.
Calipari and Barbee arrived at the event in time to watch Roselle Catholic (N.J.), the alma mater of Isaiah Briscoe. Roselle Catholic is currently led by Naz Reid, one of the top post players in the 2018 recruiting class.
Later Sunday night, the UK coaches stuck around to see Ranney School (N.J.) teammates Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, both guards ranked among the top 15 prospects in the class of 2019.
