Skal the great


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – When you play your best game of the season, us media folks are going to talk about it for a while.

Skal Labissiere played his best game of the season against Florida in the win over the Gators Tuesday night.

We’ve seen the big fella knock down jumpers before so that wasn’t the unbelievable part of his performance.  His 8 rebounds, however, were pretty special….especially doing it against UF and not NJIT like earlier in the season.

Why haven’t we seen more of that from Skal?

Maybe it’s dropping out of the lottery in mock drafts that’s getting to him and has fully taken the pressure off?

Hear from Cal in the video.
