This summer the Kentucky basketball team will have ten official practices to prepare for their week-long trip to the Bahamas.
After weeks of open gyms, individual work outs and weight training, today John Calipari got to work with his team in an official capacity for the first time. He came away impressed.
“Had our first of 10 days of practice yesterday before the Bahamas. I continue to be impressed with this group’s toughness and work capacity. Got a lot done in two hours, including defense for the first time this summer. If we are going to be special, defense and rebounding will be the key. Lots of experimenting and lots of fun.”
Coach Cal will have nine more practice opportunities before UK opens play at the Atlantis Imperial Arena against the Bahamian National Team on Wednesday August 8.
For this practice, we only got a couple of Calipari Tweets. I have a feeling we’ll see and hear a lot more from the Joe Craft Center before the team departs for paradise.
