Former WPIAL Star, Kentucky Sophomore Adou Thiero Enters Transfer Portal

Published

on

A big name from Western Pennsylvania has hit the transfer portal.

On Thursday afternoon, Kentucky sophomore Adou Thiero entered the portal after spending the last two seasons with Kentucky. Thiero, now standing at 6-foot-8, 222 pounds, played for Quaker Valley in the WPIAL in high school. The Leetsdale, Pennsylvania native shined in a bigger role for John Calipari’s Wildcats this year, averaging 7.2 points and five rebounds per game while shooting 49% from the field and hitting 7 of his 22 three-point tries.

Thiero scored 181 points and grabbed 124 rebounds this year for the Wildcats.

His best game of the year came against No. 1 Kansas in the beginning of the season. Thiero shined for the Wildcats, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. He scored in double figures four more times throughout the season for Kentucky. However, in Kentucky’s NCAA Tournament loss to Oakland in Pittsburgh, Thiero played just seven minutes, going 1 for 3 from the field for two points.

Jeff Capel offered Thiero back in March of 2022, during his senior season. Thiero entered the year with minimal division one interest, but as he continued to grow and improve on the basketball court, his recruitment exploded. He visited Pitt on April 18, 2022.

Adou Bids Adieux to Kentucky should have been the headline here. Missed opportunity.

Glad he is looking to play elsewhere. He would be best suited at a program that is not built on 5 star one and done players and transfer portal players. Loved seeing Kentucky get beat by Oakland. Greg Kampe could coach circles around Calipari and the Antigua brothers.

Started at UK contrary to some moron’s assertion that he was “tethered to the bench”. Should have quite a few suitors. His Dad played at Duquesne and Memphis.

He was primarily a bench player douche bag. He played 7 minutes in the loss to Oakland. You obviously did not watch them much this year. Go fuck yourself Rob. Do not interface with me you serial cock gagger.

Wow. You seem to have some serious anger issues. Get some help you sad little Cuck. But I must admit that triggering your demented ass is pretty funny.
And 22 mpg on a team that ran 10-11 deep is not “primarily a bench player”. Simple math. Rhetorical question in addition to being demented and perverted, how fucking stupid are you, skippy?

He’s not worth the effort.He says he has to degrees from Pitt, sure cheapens my degrees.From previous entries, he appears to like to close opportuntity after he’s gotten his. By his loftty standards Billy Knight shouldn’t have been given the opportunity to attend Pitt. He didn’t project in 1970 and couldn’t play on the freshmen team.Billy and I walked on the last Sunday of April in 1974. He graduated Cum Laude (I didn’t). Played in the NBA and worked in the front office of NBA teams until he retired in his late fifties. Quite a success for someone who would… Read more »

Good players have bad games, bad players have good games. If he is sitting on the bench in a tournament game, it appears he never developed further after high school.
