Fresh off his team’s 46-point exhibition loss to Kentucky, Transylvania head coach Brian Lane complimented John Calipari and the UK staff on how well they’re coaching this young team. Lane said he visited a couple of preseason workouts in the Craft Center and he is impressed by how hard the staff is working.
“If you think they recruit the best players and then roll out the ball, you’re crazy,” Lane said. “I, like you, will be eager to see (Kentucky) as the season progresses.”
On whether or not he’d like to continue being one of Kentucky’s two exhibition games in the future, Lane said he loves the opportunity to walk down Broadway and play the Cats.
“They can beat the crap out of us and I’ll walk down here every single year,” Lane said of continuing the Battle on Broadway. “As long as it’s not snowing or raining.”
