UK Basketball Player Previews: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

Our player profile series continues tonight with a look at freshman guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.  The six-foot-six Ontario, Canada native flew under the radar for most of his recruitment, but shot up the rankings towards the end when he decided to commit to Kentucky. He was rated as a four-star prospect and adds size to UK’s backcourt.  Here is part of our preseason conversation with him.
