The 2 Things Kentucky Basketball Players Would Take To A Deserted Island

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Finally, somebody at the SEC Tournament asked Kentucky basketball players a tough question: If you could bring only two things to a deserted island, what would they be?

Walk-on guard Jonny David, using a Gatorade bar as his microphone, grilled teammates on this important issue of survival after the eighth-ranked Wildcats improved to 28-5 with Saturday’s SEC Tournament semifinal win over Alabama.

“A lighter and then … Oh my God, I was just reading an article about this,” senior forward Derek Willis said. “Just in case it ever happens. So you get a lighter and something to make a fire with — whatever that stuff is.”


“Yeah, that stuff,” Willis said.

Fellow senior Dominique Hawkins went a little more sentimental and a lost less practical.

“I’m going to bring you,” he told David, “and everybody that lives in Kentucky.”

No, but what about things?

“Like an iPhone and an Xbox?” Hawkins said.

But, um, there probably won’t be electricity or cell service.

“Get out of here!” he said, grinning.
