Isaiah Briscoe wants to move forward: 'I don't play for Kentucky no more'

Isaiah Briscoe wants to move forward: 'I don't play for Kentucky no more'

To be clear: Isaiah Briscoe is tired of talking about Kentucky. Understandably, he got a lot of questions Friday at the NBA Combine about the place he played college basketball for the last two seasons. A ridiculous number of players have been drafted out of that program, which is Briscoes current (albeit unlikely) goal.

All the Kentucky questions, I dont play for Kentucky no more! Briscoe yelped. Im just trying to start fresh.

Maybe it bothers him that four other Wildcats are projected to be picked in the 2017 NBA Draft in June, but Briscoe is not. Perhaps it stings that the former McDonalds All-American point guard had to play off the ball most of his UK career " and in the shadow of star guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray as a freshman, then DeAaron Fox and Malik Monk as a sophomore.

Whatever the reason, Briscoe seemed salty over the mere mention of his former school.

I enjoyed my time at Kentucky, it was fine, but I moved on, he said, declaring that his pro position will be point guard. Obviously, I wasnt playing point guard in college, but it is what it is. College is over with. Why we still talking about college? Im starting a new chapter in my life.

He did thank John Calipari and the Cats coaching staff for the opportunity to play for the winningest program in college basketball history. He started 69 games in two seasons and was an integral part of two NCAA Tournament teams, including the one that lost to UNC on a last-second shot in this years Elite Eight.
