Freshmen shine in UK scrimmage
The public workout featuring the nation's top freshman class saw many of Kentucky's six McDonald's All-American recruits delight a crowd of 15,305 with highlight-variety plays. A series of nice drives highlighted Young's stellar night, while Randle (eight rebounds) was strong inside on both ends.
Aaron Harrison added 19 points and six assists for the Blue, which hit its first six shots en route to finishing 43 of 69 from the field (62 percent) and outrebounding the White 36-28. Dakari Johnson had 15 points and nine rebounds.
Also at the scrimmage, two students won a scholarship drawing in which coach John Calipari will cover their spring semester tuition, the Lexington Herald Leader reported. Calipari told the newspaper the odds of winning were 250-to-1. Each scholarship is worth about $5,000.
