UK basketball signee Tyrese Maxey was in Lexington for the Cats’ 71-63 victory over Kansas on Saturday, and he got an introduction to the Rupp Arena fans early in the evening.
During the first TV timeout of the first half, former UK guard and gameday emcee Ravi Moss introduced Maxey to the Rupp crowd, which greeted him with loud cheers and applause as he smiled widely and a graphic honoring the five-star point guard’s selection to the McDonald’s All-American Game was displayed on the arena’s video screens.
Maxey — a 6-foot-2 recruit from Texas — was selected Thursday for the McDonald’s Game, which will be played March 27 in Atlanta. He committed to the Cats in May and officially signed with Kentucky in November.
