Calipari on his team: “They swam like heck”

John Calipari talked a lot in his pre-game press conference yesterday about his team being in a “do or die” type of situation heading into the final stretch of the season. Calipari called it a “one-game season.” Cal talked about how sometimes it takes a team almost drowning before they start to swim. After today’s win over Florida, Calipari proudly said about his team that “they swam like heck.” 

“In the last seven minutes, when it was in doubt…they swam like heck.”

    Guys fought so hard. Huge charge taken by Willie, and despite foul shooting problems and 2 boneheaded offensive fouls in the last 8 minutes, Archie played huge, getting to the line more often than he turned it over, and getting a couple huge steals for run outs when we needed them most.

    And how about those rebounds by Poythress? We were getting killed on the boards at times, but he put up some big boards in a huge game.

    Such a fun game to be at. 23,000 people on their feet multiple times throughout the game and at the end.

    Tremendous hustle & HEART!!!… Florida had it’s way driving to the bucket when Willie went out … But WCS was ready and able MENTALLY to play 11:30+ with 4 FOULS … Did a perfect job like NERLENS did against Ole Miss .. saved us just like the flat top feller. But MY GOD KYLE WILTJER SUCKS .. NO DEFENSE at ALL. The man(s) he guarded scored 26 points by my count if he doesn’t score 20+ he is a huge liability, bless his heart. CATS!!
