who should the other 2 be? – .

We got our first real glimpse of the new Kentucky Wildcats in a game-like environment tonight in the Blue-White game, and just about everyone who spoke up was impressed in some way. other.

It was with CJ Fredrick (leg) and Jacob Toppin (shoulder) both seated, so it will clearly be a challenge for John Calipari to determine the starting lineup and rotations he will use this season.

It turns out that Calipari already has three names in mind when it comes to starters.

After the blue-white game, Calipari spoke to the media and said junior guard Sahvir Wheeler, junior forward Oscar Tshiebwe and freshman TyTy Washington will likely be in the top five when games against de real opponents will take place.

This has been the trend for some time, as Wheeler is currently the team’s best true point guard, Tshiebwe is easily the best center and arguably the best big man overall, and Washington is a gifted goalscorer who can easily have a big impact from the 2 or 3 seater, although he also runs the point when Wheeler is out of play.

As for the other two spots, Kellan Grady, fifth year senior, and Davion Mintz, sixth year senior, are probably the top contenders for third place guard, second year in red shirt Dontaie Allen being a black horse.

Then at 4 it’s likely junior Keion Brooks and freshman Bryce Hopkins, although freshman Daimion Collins has recently grown strong and even shows he’s capable of being a legitimate 3-point threat. .

Normally in a close battle the safe bet is to go with the veterans which is why I think Brooks and Grady are the other two starters for Game 1.

So here’s my current guess for the starting lineup against the Duke Blue Devils on opening night:

  • PG : Sahvir Wheeler
  • SG : TyTy Washington
  • SF : Kellan Grady
  • PF: Keion Brooks
  • C : Oscar Tshiebwe

All in all, if Wheeler, Washington and Tshiebwe are three starters, who do you think the other two should be? Let us know in the “Comments!” Section.
