The UK Alumni Charity game may have been held back in August, but footage of John Calipari getting mic’d up for the event just released, and it’s brilliant.
On this week’s “This Is Kentucky Basketball,” we saw Coach Cal talk to former players and coaches at the event, including appearances from Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray, Eric Bledsoe, Jack “Goose” Givens, Joe B. Hall, and many more.

Regardless of how this season has gone and your latest thoughts on the one and done system, there’s no denying the Kentucky job was made for John Calipari. His ability to bring everyone in and create a family atmosphere with some of the most talented basketball players in the NBA year after year is simply unmatched.
In the entire “This Is Kentucky Basketball” episode, we also heard from Coach Cal during his weekly mailbag segment, where he talked about coaching his players during a slump and how he has dealt with it in the past. We also got an update from the NBA Cats.
