Quade Green had his eye swell shut last week in a game against Monmouth and his status was up in the air. He did end up getting cleared to play for today’s game against Virginia Tech, but to be safe, Green is wearing a pair of protective glasses, aka Rec Specs.
And these aren’t the goofy looking goggles that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or Kurt Rambis used to rock. These rec specs have a modern-day flair to them.
So far, the goggles aren’t giving Green much of a problem, as leads the Wildcats in scoring with 10 points while adding 3 assists He’s a major reason the Wildcats have been able to keep it close against the Hokies, as Kentucky trails at halftime.
Here is another look at Green in the pregame warmups.

On Friday, coach John Calipari spoke about the importance of the Green to this Kentucky team.
Quade’s ability to score, without him, it hurts us,” Calipari said. “It’s more than everybody understands. He’s a consistent guy that gets buckets. It’s just in his DNA. That not being there would put us in a tough position going into this game.”
You can follow along here for live updates or watch the game, which is being broadcast on ESPN2.
