John Calipari joined KSR on Wednesday to talk about the upcoming college basketball season and how his team is performing during summer workouts.


One player that’s going to surprise everyone is freshman guard/forward Keldon Johnson. Calipari praised Johnson during the show. He even added that he’s been the most consistent shooter.



“Right now, if you asked me the most consistent shooter we’ve had, it’s been Keldon,” Calipari said. “He’s been the most consistent.”


Calipari added that the freshman has been, “Wow!”


“I knew he’d be good, but I didn’t realize that he has the chance to be this good, Calipari said. “I had to put him against Reid yesterday and he did not back down. They were physically going at each other.”



TJ Beisner of posted his practice report Tuesday night and there was a lot of praise for Travis and Johnson.


“They went at each other when they had the ball, said Beisner in a post to “They went at each other harder when they didn’t have the ball.  They talked trash and knocked each other around, but were also always the first to help each other up.  I would’ve paid money just to watch these two battle for another hour.  It was just plain awesome.”


It’s time to get excited, BBN.
