MIDDLETOWN, OH. Kentucky assistant basketball coach John Robic emphasized that junior Darnell Dodson will be playing for the Wildcats next season during his time Saturday at the UK Ohio Convention in Middletown, Ohio.

"Dodson is eligible. Don't believe everything you hear," said Robic.

Rumors have swirled since the season ended that Dodson would not be back with the Wildcats. Rumors speculated that it could be anything from academics to off-court problems.

But when asked if Dodson "definitely would be at Kentucky next season," Robic quickly said yes.

He added that Dodson, like other returning players, needed to have improved their skills and strengthened their bodies during the offseason.

"We need him to be a better 3-point shooter, a better defender, a better player. But that's true with all five guys coming back," Robic said.
