Calipari jokes he didn’t care about Fox’s assist, he just wanted to make sure Brad got his stats

Some national media members made a big deal this week about De’Aaron Fox mistakingly being credited for an assist vs. Arizona State in the Bahamas. The scorers came out and said they’re not changing the box score, which means Fox’s triple double — only the second in Kentucky basketball history — will remain intact, but when asked, Calipari said he only lost sleep over one stat line: his son Brad’s.

“I just didn’t sleep the night before because I wanted to make sure Brad got his three points, his assist and his rebound,” Cal said, smiling. “And when he had those in there, I don’t care about anything else. As long as Brad got his stuff in that stats, we’re good.”

“I stuck Fox back in and I would have left him in longer if he needed more because there were seven minutes in the game. It wasn’t two minutes and I stuck him in, it was seven minutes. The other thing is, he’ll probably have another one. He wasn’t worried about it. I said, ‘You know they make take away your assist,’ he said, ‘I don’t care.'”

Hell hath no fury like a Mrs. Cal when Brad doesn’t get his three points, his one assist, and his rebound.

    All I know is Junior better start making shots! Currently, he is 1 for 8 on 3s, a 12.5% average..

    However, all the KY boys are struggling BIG TIME this year. Dominique is 1 for 10…10%!
    And Willis throwing brick 3s so far at 26.7% (4 of 15). These guys better be practicing more…lol.

    Cal just better not pull a Tubby and refuse to recruit UK level point guards. All bets are off if he ever REALLY starts worrying about Brad’s stats. To this day I don’t think Saul has gotten a single job that Tubby didn’t give him. I don’t see Cal. doing that. He’ll push him out of the nest.
