It wouldn’t be Selection Sunday without John Calipari taking a shot at the Selection Committee, and after Kentucky’s SEC Championship, he delivered. When asked how the Cats’ run would affect their seed in the tournament, Cal dropped this classic line.
“Probably get a 12 and play in the play-in game in Dayton,” Cal quipped. “Is there a site in Anchorage?”
Jokes aside, Cal said the way Kentucky responded to Tennessee’s runs will help them in the tournament.
“I told them at halftime this is good because this will happen in the next tournament,” Cal said of Tennessee coming back from 17 points down. “This team responded. They responded and I just — every situation and experience is new to them.”
“Proud of them,” he added. “Really proud of them.”
