Kentucky looked great against Georgia without Jarred Vanderbilt in the lineup. Hopefully we can say the same when the Cats take on Alabama tomorrow.
John Calipari joined the ESPN set following the quarterfinal win and provided an update on Vanderbilt’s status.
“I don’t think Jarred will play tomorrow,” Calipari said. “That ankle, he’s walking around on it. He’s telling me, ‘I’m gonna get ready.’ Come on man. You can’t. You gotta be 100 at this time of the year or you cannot be playing.”
Coach Cal was pleased with how his team responded in Vanderbilt’s absence. P.J. Washington had seven rebounds, Wenyen Gabriel got six and Kevin Knox grabbed nine. “When he rebounds, we’re pretty good.”
We’ll see if Kentucky’s frontcourt can replicate that kind of performance tomorrow at 1:00 ET.
