John Calipari did not have a post-game update on Reid Travis’ knee injury; he can only hope the injury is not a severe one that will keep his star forward out any longer.
“His knee was bothering him, so we’ll get the MRI and go from there and see,” Coach Cal said after the game. “Hopefully he’s going to be OK.”
Cal didn’t even see the collision that caused the knee strain, he admitted, but it changed the way Kentucky played in the second half.
“When Reid got hurt, I was just trying to get out of the gym. We were tentatively offensively,” he told Tom Leach in his radio interview. His message to his team was “let’s just get out of here.”
