Maxey

UK basketball commitments Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney were named to the Jordan Brand Classic on Friday night, and they might end up doing a little recruiting at next month’s game.

Joining Maxey and Whitney on the “Away Team” will be five-star UK targets Keion Brooks and Jaden McDaniels, who are both still weighing their college decisions.

Tyler Herro

UK basketball signee Tyler Herro scored 13 points and added five rebounds, five assists and three steals in his team’s 146-136 loss at the Jordan Brand Classic in Brooklyn on Sunday night.

Herro — a 6-foot-5 shooting guard — was 5-for-9 from the field and 1-for-3 from three-point range. He led his team in assists and played 20 minutes as a starter.

Fellow UK signee Keldon Johnson did not play in the game due to a sprained ankle suffered in the GEICO national championships last week. Both Herro and Johnson are scheduled to participate in the Nike Hoop Summit later this week.
