On this morning’s SEC Coaches’ Teleconference, Calipari said this team’s problem right now is that they haven’t totally “bought in” to how they have to play to win. Cal said they’re trying to please him in practice, but that there’s a lack of trust that’s holding them back from being able to rely on their teammates and finish games.
Cal cited DeAndre Liggins and Josh Harrellson as two players who “bought in” and reaped the rewards. Jorts “almost got thrown off the team before he bought in,” and when he did, he helped the Cats make a Final Four and earned a place in the NBA. Liggins bought in and it “changed his life,” evidenced by his first NBA career start last night against the Trailblazers.
What will make this group push all their chips in?
“The only thing that brings about a change is crisis. I hope it’s Texas A&M, but it might not be. We might have to get hit on the chin three or four more times.“
Let’s just hope we’ll have a postseason to play in once they get there.
