BENTON — UK Coach John Calipari arrived at the Marshall County Hoop Fest during the third quarter of the Lexington Catholic-Marshall County matchup Saturday night.

That game featured Lexington Catholic senior Zan Payne — the son of UK assistant coach Kenny Payne — who has been mentioned as a possible walk-on for the Wildcats next season. Kenny Payne was also at the Hoop Fest on Saturday night.

The two later games on Saturday’s schedule feature UK signee Keldon Johnson, five-star 2019 target D.J. Jeffries, and Adair County freshman Zion Harmon, who has visited Lexington a couple of times in recent weeks.

Calipari coached UK to a victory over Harvard earlier in the day Saturday.
