Kentucky Wildcats TV has the video of John Calipari’s press conference in Arkansas last night. Watch as Cal commends his opponent for playing a great game in the “tough loss” for his Wildcats.
Two quotes that stood out:
Kentucky didn’t quit…
“I’m proud of my team that they didn’t quit, they kept playing. We executed — that gives us a chance when it was, when we went down three. You know stuff that we’ve worked on, we did, and we got the shot we wanted. We’re just — the last shot, the kid watched. My guy watched and the guy ran by him and dunked it. You know what? He’s a freshman and that’s what freshmen do.”
Julius Randle would be a gold medalist in sumo wrestling running…
“(Randle) gets cramps because he gets whacked so much. It’s hard. He’s playing sumo wrestling and running. It’s hard. That’s a new sport. He’d be a gold medalist in that sport.
Also from Kentucky Wildcats TV, Julius Randle intervened to say the team shares the blame when James Young was asked about not boxing out on the game’s final play. The video starts right as Randle chimed in:
