The USA team pulled out a massive win today under the enthusiastic guidance of Coach Calipari. The boys held the lead over Iran the entirety of the game, accompanied by the Calipari sideline dance of dramatic arm waves and shouts.
Big Blue Nation has come to know and love his signature style of coaching, but today one of the FIBA referees gestured that Calipari please remember to stay behind the line. He promptly sat down, and managed to contain himself. Restraint was short lived and he proceeded to wave, stomp and shout the team to a 60-point victory.
Unfortunately, Calipari was not available after the game for the typical postgame press conference. The big stage Calipari normally commands was taken over by the World Cup’s Opening Ceremony.
