While you were sleeping last night, your Kentucky Wildcats were putting in extra work.


Sophomore guard Quade Green has started a trend since the Wildcats have been in the Bahamas. After Wednesday’s win, Green returned to the court to get extra shots up after midnight. On Thursday, his teammates joined him.



Freshmen Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson were the first two players to return to the floor, where they shot free throws. Soon after, the rest of the team joined them. That’s right, the entire team was in the gym just a few hours after a convincing 23-point victory against a professional team that’s won their league the last three years.



This team is going to be special and somewhere, John Calipari had a smile on his face.
