Monk: “Coach wanted me to drive, but I was hot”


In the postgame press conference following the big win, Jerry Tipton asked Malik Monk about his hesitation before taking the game-winner. Monk told him John Calipari was yelling for him to take it to the basket, but he wanted to try out the hot hand.

Coach Cal told me to drive, but I was hot,” he said, laughing.

Monk and De’Aaron Fox had plenty more to say about Monk’s 47 points, a new freshman record, and about the win as a whole.

Hear it all below in my shaky video below:

    Does anyone know why Bam wasn’t in the game the last 4 min? Makes no sense unless he royally pissed Cal off with something he said?

      He fouled out. Did Mulder make the trip? Also, Willis had 3 points and 1 board in 19 minutes. I’m pumped we won, but wondering why Mulder didn’t play and what Derek did for 19 minutes besides not score or rebound.

    Drew is such. Cock sucking groupie. How BBN supports this loser is beyond me. We pay for this lame ass guy to be a groupie to 18 year olds but whatever, congrats Drew. You do nothing segificant in life but have uneducated rednecks support your dumb posts and tweets. Your so lame.

      Yea Drew you aren’t providing content that is FREE to people reading the board in the way that pleases this guy. When somebody FORCES ME to read their FREE content I expect much more. One other thing, how DARE you support UK Athletics. This FREE content should be more negative … you know like the Lexington Harold Leader that has spent decades begin negative in every way possible about UK sports. One more thing I get to PAY for the Lexington Harold Leader’s attempts to tear down UK and I have to get your pro-UK content for FREE.

      Drew, seriously I know that this guy’s sister and mother had the flat head, big ears and no teeth but that doesn’t make it right.

      You’re clearly hurt his feelings.

    Hopefully, there will be a repeat.
