Despite the disappointing loss, Cal still likes his team.
“One guy goes for forty out of eighty. …We did what we were supposed to do to stay in the game and then they have a kid who goes nuts on you.”
Overall, Cal was positive about his team’s performance, especially the play of Nerlens Noel, whom he called “outstanding.” Is Nerlens becoming this team’s leader? Cal said that in order for that to happen, he has to starting showing that leadership in practice, not just in games.
When asked what the Cats need to win from now on, Cal said discipline: “The will to win is having discipline with three or four minutes to go. We don’t have that right now.”
Regardless, the man still likes his team. Do you?
