Gillispie says a few things about AJ Stewart

This might have been posted already on here, but I’m not sure because I don’t really read this site.  I just stumble over here from time to time.  via UKAthletics.com.

On A.J. Stewart’s status…
“(A.J.) Stewart had a tough time the other night, like all of us have had before. He said some things he didn’t mean to say, and since that time he’s had a great deal of remorse. He’s part of our family. Those things happen from time to time. People make mistakes. Sometimes when you have a time of remorse you realize how lucky and fortunate you are. I don’t think young people should be punished forever for having a tough night. He quit when we returned from South Carolina. He didn’t ever want to quit. He was disappointed in his playing time and mad that we lost. It’s not the end of the world. That wasn’t where his heart was. I wish he hadn’t said it, but he did. He’s part of our family so we will move on. In a situation like this his teammates wanted him back on the team. There was never a lack of love for his teammates or respect for the coaching staff or the University of Kentucky.”

On what A.J. Stewart can provide to the team …
“He played quite a bit at the Vanderbilt game, but not as much the last two games. Hopefully he’ll provide the same things we’ve been looking for him to provide the whole time. We need a defensive rebounder because we haven’t been rebounding the ball very well. That’s a major deficiency for us.”
