John Calipari to receive NABC Metropolitan Award at Final Four

Kentucky isn’t at the Final Four, but John Calipari is. On Sunday, Calipari will receive the National Association of Basketball Coaches’ Metropolitan Award, given annually to those who have made significant contributions to college basketball throughout their life. Previous winners include John Wooden, Dean Smith, Phog Allen, and Adolph Rupp. Calipari was selected as this year’s recipient earlier this month.

The award will be presented at the annual NABC Guardians of the Game Awards Show on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET at the Lila Cockrell Theater in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio. The ceremony will be streamed live on Facebook, meaning if Cal says anything interesting, we will share it with you.

Calipari will also be on College Gameday tomorrow live from San Antonio because of course:

Guys, just turn the show over to Cal and Huggy Bear, please.

    It’s amazing to me how Cal continues to collect such accolades…including already being inducted into the HOF… despite all the hate from media and opposing fan bases. I can see him spinning in his chair over this, LOL.
