Brandon Knight, Josh Selby, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb and C. J. Leslie. Five names to be familiar with when talking UK basketball. Five McDonald’s All Americans who have UK as a potential and five Players that Coach Calipari needs to fill the “Up to” nine vacant spots on the 2010-11 roster. Two of those are filled with the commitment of Stacey Poole and Enes Kanter. Grabbing these five would still potentially leave UK with two empty seats. But reality says that’s NOT going to happen.

Guess is Josh Selby will end up at Kansas to take Sherron Collins place at the point. Knight is a good feel for UK along with C. J. Leslie who has a Wall connection. Others, up in the air at this point.

Here is a quick recap of the McDonald’s All American game held Wednesday evening:

The West team defeated the East 107-104 by virtue of a last-second 3-pointer by Kentucky recruit Brandon Knight.

Knight, who appeared to be out of sync for much of the night, finished with only 9 points, but hit the shot that counted in the final seconds. He finished 3-11 from the field, including only 1-7 from long-range.

The East squad was led by Jared Sullinger’s 22 points and 7 rebounds. Josh Selby added 13 points and 3 assists and C.J. Leslie finished with 7 points and 9 rebounds.
