There will be no rest for Keldon Johnson this week.
After several days of practices leading up to Wednesday night’s McDonald’s All-American Game in Atlanta, the UK signee will play next in the GEICO Nationals — a nationwide tournament featuring the best high school players in the country — Thursday afternoon.
Johnson and Oak Hill Academy (Va.) face Garfield (Wash.) at 4 p.m. Thursday on ESPNU in the first round of the tournament. If Oak Hill wins that one, it will play in the semifinals at 3 p.m. Friday on ESPN2. The finals are set for noon Saturday on ESPN2.
