  • Alex Legion

    Anyone know anything about Kentucky freshman point guard Alex Legion who looks to be transfering?

    GM seems to be always looking for point guards. Does this kid have what it takes to be successful here? Obviously, he isn't getting the PT he thought he deserved, or he wouldn't be leaving.

    Legion, a native of Inkster, Mich., has played in all six UK games, starting twice. He has averaged 6.7 points in over 17 minutes per game.
    Doesn't sound like PT was an issue at all. He's known as a "values" kid, so maybe he didn't connect with Gillespie well. He had offers from all the major programs, so I'm sure he'll still have a lot of choices.
