How frustrated is John Calipari with how his team played down the stretch?
If not for NCAA rules preventing it, he would drive them straight to the Joe Craft Center and hold a practice tonight.
“If I could practice tonight, we would have gone three hours,” Cal said in his postgame press conference. “I would have had them meet me at the gym at 10:00, and I would have gone three hours until 1:00 in the morning until people were puking. That’s what I would have done. That’s the old days. I can’t do that.”
He said his team reverted in the final minutes, but he isn’t sure if it was due to exhaustion or reverting back to old habits or a combination of both.
“We’re going to get after this and continue to build what you saw for three quarters of the game.”
