UK Coach John Calipari was in the Baltimore area on Wednesday night to check out Immanuel Quickley, the program’s five-star point guard signee for next season.
Quickley scored 15 points in his team’s 71-61 loss to St. Frances (Md.), the No. 1-ranked team locally. Quickley — a 6-foot-3 prospect — was UK’s first commitment for the class of 2018 and is expected to compete for the starting point guard job next season.
Earlier in the day, Quickley was one of 25 players named to the Naismith watch list for national high school player of the year honors.
