Kentucky coach John Calipari traveled to the Houston area Thursday night to watch two of his future players, guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison. Calipari also had his eye on Aaron Gordon, a talented small forward playing for Archbishop Mitty of San Jose, California.
Calipari practiced his team earlier in the day and sent out a message on twitter saying he was really encouraged. Calipari said attending the NBA game Wednesday night in Charlotte helped him "immensely", because he was able to watch the pros communicate on both sides the court, and then come home and communicate that to his 18 year-olds.
The game at Travis High School outside of Houston was televised by ESPN. Andrew Harrison was slowed by a sore hamstirng but scored 10 points. Twin brother Aaron led the way with 26, including the go-ahead basket in the closing seconds of double overtime. Travis beat Mitty 56-53.
Calipari also watched Aaron Gordon of Archbishop Mitty, an impressive small forward. Gordon, who finished with 14 points, is considering several schools including UK. Gordon has not visisted Kentucky but he has made visits to Arizona, Kansas, Oregon and Washigton.
