LEXINGTON - Kentucky coach John Calipari has bemoaned a lack of depth on his roster this preseason.

He has looked to the Wildcat baseball team to address that issue.

Sophomore 6-foot-9 right-handed pitcher Ben Jordan has joined the basketball team after attending practice for the first time Tuesday. He is not expected to participate in the Blue-White scrimmage Friday night, but will provide an additional body for practice moving forward and could play in games once he gets reacclimated to the sport.
