It was five years ago today when John Calipari’s dominance over Rick Pitino began. You remember. Eric Bledsoe wanted to kill Reginald Delk and DeMarcus Cousins elbowed Jared Swopshire, all before there were any points on the board. The game had six fouls and three technicals before the 0-0 tie was broken to start the game.
In the end, third-ranked Kentucky won by nine, led by DeMarcus Cousins with 18 and 18. John Wall and Patrick Patterson chipped in with 17 apiece.
Man, I miss that team.
