LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky's most experienced men's basketball player faces the same learning curve when it comes to mastering coach John Calipari's system as his younger teammates.
However, Reid Travis has the added responsibility of leading the Wildcat underclassmen, many of whom could join him in next summer's NBA draft. The Stanford graduate transfer has demonstrated the ability of excelling as a leader: he was a three-year Cardinal captain and twice earned All-Pac-12 first team honors.
Travis also picked up pointers this spring working out for several NBA clubs. He plans to hone his game while helping Kentucky chase a ninth national championship.
