Kentucky has blown away the early competition this season and is already being considered one of the best teams ever. But to John Calipari, they’re a long way from reaching their ceiling, especially on offense. They have a long way to go.
Today he said, “Offensively, we’re at about 50 to 60 percent capacity right now. We’re just not there. Defensively, I would guess we’re 70 to 80 percent there. But we’re still not where we could be in either area. Offensively we’re behind where we are defensively.”
May I remind you, Kentucky is No. 1 in Pomeroy’s adjusted defense rankings and No. 3 in offense. And if Kentucky is at 70ish percent defensively, as Cal claims, Kansas is running for their lives if they end up anywhere near UK in the tournament.
More from Cal’s presser to come…
