John Calipari says on this extremely illegitimate-looking post-game press conference set-up “I didn’t want Marquis playing Hickey, because I didn’t want it to be a back-and-fourth. I just want this kid to keep running our team.” Calipari was extremely impressed and excited with the way Kentucky played today, saying “this team is going to be fun.” He gave his position away on the newly-enforced block/charge too. I think he wants more blocks.
The man of the night, Terrence Jones was modest in his post-game but said “When it came down to it we made plays through their physical play.” He said he came out and was “just playing.” Well Terrence, keep rolling off that side of the bed, eat the same breakfast, and put the same pant leg on first tomorrow. It’s working, keep doing it! Jones says his own point of emphasis during practice has been working on his free throws. Again, if that’s made your entire game evolve the way it did tonight, keep practicing those foul shots.
