Coach Calipari will meet with the press today at 3pm, his first conference since the end of the season. The words “special announcement” have been attached to the presser but few have a clue as to the significance. Keep in mind this was scheduled before the Terrence Jones Affair and, unless Cal’s got a LOI from the kid, will not be about him. But there won’t be a dearth of topic to discuss with the new freshmen, possible JV squad creation and the bad GPA news. Check back later as we’ll have a full rundown with Matt’s thoughts.
Oh, and at 3:30 PST (that’s 6:30 our time) Washington coach Lorenzo Romar will be having a press conference which could provide a little more info on what’s up with Terrence Jones. As far as I know, Romar has no LOI from Jones and won’t be able to discuss him specifically, but no doubt situation will be talked about in more general terms. According to Percy Allen of the Seattle Times, the conference is to discuss the signing of Terrence Ross. We’ll keep you updated on this one, too.
