Jacob Toppin confirms he’s returning for 2021-22 season

  Jacob Toppin confirms he’s returning for 2021-22 season Toppin has a bright future ahead of him.While expected to happen, Toppin’s return will be a major boost to a Kentucky program that’s struggled to keep multi-year players in Lexington. He will be a third-year player for the 2021-22 college basketball season.

The college basketball world had a good time laughing at the Kentucky Wildcats this season. That apparently is not going to last.

Kentucky coach John Calipari appeared on ESPN’s “College GameDay” Saturday, and he came with a stark warning to those who have been reveling in the Wildcats’ struggles.

“A lot of people had fun at our expense and celebrated,” Calipari said. “I’m ready to get going. This can’t come fast enough now.”

UK not in the mix for Kadary Richmond and fading with Justin Powell

  UK not in the mix for Kadary Richmond and fading with Justin Powell UK’s point guard options appear to be dwindling, for now.Grady fills a much-needed spot, as he is a shooting guard that can score at a very high level. He averaged 17 points each year at Davidson and shoots 38% from deep, which is something Kentucky was missing last season.

Calipari said it with a smile, but there was definitely some meaning behind his words. The Wildcats went a disastrous 9-16 in 2020-21, missing the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2013. That is not good enough in Lexington, and Calipari knows it.

We wonder if Calipari had anyone specific in mind when he issued his warning. We can certainly think of one person it might apply to.
