With the Cats struggling, the question many in the Big Blue Nation are asking today is “when will Dominique Hawkins be back?”. The junior guard missed his fourth straight game on Saturday with a sprained left ankle, but on today’s SEC Coaches Teleconference, John Calipari said Hawkins will practice tonight.

“He’s gonna practice this evening, so we’re gonna have individuals (workouts) here in a little while, film when I get back in and then we’re practicing tonight,” Calipari said. “I texted him this morning and he told me he would practice, I said, ‘well, if you’re going to only do one, do the evening practice.’ So, that’ll be good so now we can get him back in there and see where he is physically.”

Kentucky needs Hawkins’ energy on defense, especially on the road where every game is the opponent’s…you guessed it, Super Bowl.

“It’s hard, the way these games are going, where everybody’s on a high playing us, we cannot — whatever is holding you back from high-energy play, you’ve gotta figure it out because whether it’s injury or anything else, mentally — because we’re facing teams that are playing like their lives depend on it. We’ve gotta be a desperate team also.
