6 Kentucky Basketball Freshmen Pose For Picture In New Wildcats Uniforms

Kentucky basketball brought in a sensational freshman class once again in 2016. The full group took a photo in the Wildcats' new uniforms at a shoot today.

The six new players—five stars De'Aaron Fox, Bam Adebayo, Malik Monk, Wenyen Gabriel, Sacha Killeya-Jones, and walk-on Brad Calipari—donned the new checkerboard jerseys.

Kentucky's class ranked No. 1 in the SEC, and No. 2 in the nation behind Duke, per 247Sports.

Kentucky's Big Blue Madness is just under a month away, on October 14, and the team plays its first exhibition game on October 30 against Clarion. The official season opener comes against Stephen F. Austin on November 11.

With Kentucky football off to an 0-2 start, including a heartbreaking collapse against Southern Miss and a blowout 30th straight loss to Florida, basketball season can't get here soon enough for Big Blue Nation. Luckily, as always, fans get a whole slew of impressive new players to root on.
