Kentucky Wildcat Basketball: Calipari talks to CBS Sports Network

Calipari's been talking.

As cincyblue alluded to on Friday, John Calipari recently sat down with CBS Sports Network's Jon Rothstein and answered questions about, among other things, UK's national championship, one-and-dones, who shot Kennedy, and his newfound fondness for referring to UK as a "non-traditional" program.

Not much new from Cal, but the three videos essentially serve as a teaser for the airing of the full interview tonight at 7:30 ET on CBS Sports Network. For those who can't get enough Coach Cal, this is perfect.

Also in the news: after beating Valparaiso 8-1 Saturday -- SEC Freshman of the Year Austin Cousino paced UK with a 3-for-5 day, as he drove in three runs and stole home to boot -- the Bat Cats (44-17) next take on Purdue, who lost to Kent State Sunday night, 7-3. In the double-elimination format, it's a win-or-go-home scenario for both ball clubs. Thankfully for UK, All-SEC pitcher Cory Littrell (8-2, 2.66 era) will be on the bump for the 'Cats.

If UK beats Purdue it will play Kent at 8:00 ET Sunday night. If the Bat Cats win the rematch, the same two teams play Monday night for the right to move on to the NCAA Super Regionals.

For all those ex-catchers out there, something to appreciate: UK senior back-stop Michael Williams has caught all 30-innings of Kentucky's two games in regional play (21 innings Friday night, nine Saturday afternoon), and he's picked up four hits along the way.

Good luck Bat Cats!
