Oscar Tshiebwe’s return to Kentucky basketball gives the Wildcats a chance to win the national championship
The Kentucky Wildcats have been given a big boost by the news that Oscar Tshiebwe will be back next year.
The Kentucky Wildcats and head coach John Calipari have earned a huge offseason victory. Because the Naismith Player of the Year has decided to put off his plans to play in the NBA for at least another year.
Oscar Tshiebwe, a United Kingdom star, announced on Wednesday that he will return to the club for the 2022-23 season.Obviously, this is huge for the Wildcats, as Tshiebwe didn’t want this year’s tournament first-round exit to be his final memory with the team.
Oscar Tshiebwe’s homecoming has enthralled Kentucky basketball fans
Tshiebwe had an outstanding season last year, averaging 17.4 points and 15.1 rebounds per game. Tshiebwe was also named SEC Player of the Year for his outstanding performance, which almost no one predicted.
There has been a lot of conjecture in recent weeks that he would make the jump to the NBA, but that isn’t going to happen. Because of this Tshiebwe announcement, Kentucky’s chances of making the NCAA Tournament again next year have gone up a lot.
No one will forget how the squad finished this year’s season, as they were a No. 2 seed and expected to easily defeat No. 15 Saint Peter’s. Instead, the Peacocks pulled off one of the greatest upsets in basketball history.
Following that defeat, Tshiebwe and his colleagues were deflated. Countless supporters believed this team had a chance to win it all, but they were eliminated in the first round.
In the coming season, Tshiebwe will be ready to go all out and ensure that the Wildcats play at a high level from start to finish. This is a tremendous triumph for Calipari and his staff once again.
