After a tough loss to arch-rival Louisville, it’s safe to say that most are feeling a tad deflated. John Calipari feels the same way, but he’s moving forward. This morning on his personal site, CoachCal.com, he wrote an open message for his players and BBN. In the brief piece, Calipari touched on multiple subjects like working with Alex Poythress going forward and the improvement being experienced by Ryan Harrow.
On the subject of “Camp Cal” and the effort being put forth by the players:
My job is to help all these young people become the best versions of themselves on and off the court and get them to understand how much they need each other to truly do that. The last two weeks, we’ve moved in that direction.
On what Alex Poythress can become in the future:
All of us think Alex can be as good as anyone in the country. It’s my responsibility to get him to think that way and play that way for himself and his teammates so that we can all become the best versions of ourselves.
