Calipari says Poythress grew up and Mays wanted the ball

John Calipari talked glowingly about his team in his post-game comments, especially Alex Poythress and Julius Mays. Calipari said that Poythress grew up today. “There was just one spell when he gave up. He (Poythress) grew up today because he went back in and he finished those last 7 minutes He was a beast.” Poythress finished with 12 rebounds on the day, which ties his career-high.

Calipari also expanded on Julius Mays’ comments that he wanted the ball in the final seconds of the game. Calipari said that Mays came up to him in the huddle during the timeout and said, “get me the ball.”

“When we’re at our best, we are an NCAA tournament team,” Calipari quipped after the game. “When we are at our worst, we’re not very good.”

    Poythress “grew up”..come on Cal…31 games into the season, and he grew up? I did good on the boards but 9 pts. not much for his ability. It is nice not to have had another weekend blown by your boys so thanks for that. Good luck getting in Wusstjer’s head to find out what is wrong with him.

    Based on #2 Mike’s comments, maybe he should take a look in the mirror and ask himself if he has ever grown up?

    Maybe its people like Mike #5 that refuse to look at everything thru blue-tinted glasses. This season has sucked and there is no other way to state it. Why don’t you grow up and be a man and admit it?

  9. Come on...

    Come on everyone….#1 and #2 are both UL fans. No need to even acknowledge them, however it does speak volumes of UK’s dominance in college basketball that other fans are obssessed with our every game. Good win today…..go cats!
