Watch: John Calipari has a Nickname for Immanuel Quickley

John Calipari Immanuel Quickley

Immanuel Quickley has been hitting big shots all season for Kentucky, especially in the final minutes of games.

Pick any game this season and I guarantee you can recall a moment Quickley hit a dagger three or basket Kentucky desperately needed in the final minutes of games.

The UK sophomore delivered again in Tuesday’s 78-64 win vs. Vanderbilt. The 6-foot-3 guard hit back-to-back three-point attempts to extend Kentucky’s five point lead to eleven with 3:01 to play in the game.


After the game, John Calipari referred to Quickley as “Big Balls” for hitting the two shots late in the game. I didn’t expect that when UK posted video from the locker room after the win, but it looks like we now have a nickname for Quickley. Immanuel “Big Balls” Quickley.
