The University of Kentucky released the Fall Semester GPAs of its student-athletes on Friday and the Cats came up just shy of the 3.0 goal set before the semester. The average for all UK student-athletes in the fall was 2.932, and 2.979 for student-athletes on scholarship. The basketball team posted a 2.7.
“A 2.7 is pretty good,” Calipari said about his team’s GPA. “We had a couple of guys that dropped the ball a little bit or it would have been about a 2.9. They’re taking care of business. That doesn’t mean they don’t have to do some catch-up and they don’t have to get after it, but we’ve got kids that are trying to do the right things.”
