Moss Point's Booker sees substantial time on Kentucky's Bahamas trip

Moss Point's Devin Booker saw substantial minutes in each of the Kentucky basketball team's six exhibition contests in the Bahamas.

The Wildcats went 5-1, losing to the Dominican Republic national team, 63-62, in the trip's final contest on Sunday.

Even with the loss, the trip to the Bahamas was a very successful one for Kentucky. The Dominican Republic has a team with plenty of experience and Division I talent. 

The Wildcats beat the Dominican Republic, 84-71, in the previous game between the two teams on the tour.

Booker averaged 5.2 points a game and 19.5 minutes a contest on the tour in his first action as a member of the Kentucky basketball team. 

The most promising sign for Booker was that he hit 6-of-14 3-pointers for a solid percentage of 42.9. 

If he can keep up that clip, he should play a significant role on this year's team as an outside shooter.
