Sidelines with John Clay

Recent Kentucky basketball double-double streaks

Sophomore forward PJ Washington recorded his third consecutive double-double in Kentucky’s 65-54 win at Florida on Saturday.

That prompted the question: When was the last time a UK player achieved a double-double in three consecutive games?

As I pointed out in my Monday column, that distinction belongs to Julius Randle. And I pointed out that in the John Calipari era, Randle and DeMarcus Cousins each had stretches of seven consecutive games in which they recorded double-doubles.

Here’s a look at Kentucky players who had three-or-more consecutive games with double-doubles since the 2006-07 basketball season (points/rebounds):
