Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: John Calipari Talks Lamar

Tomorrow, the Kentucky Wildcats face off against the Lamar Cardinals in Rupp Arena. Today, John Calipari talked with the media about the matchup.

Some observations:

  • The Breakfast Club has now grown to eight. Cal claimed not to know about it, says the reporter's question was the "first time he heard about it."
  • Calipari had a dust-up with Jerry Tiption, but it seems more minor on the tape than it reads in Kyle Tucker's report. Naturally, Gary Parrish already made an "uh-oh" tweet about it. He apparently can't wait to stir up some mud between Cal and the media after his run-in earlier this year that drew UK's ire.
  • Calipari says Kidd-Gilchrist is getting better at "Dragging the team with him." Cal said he didn't want to do it at first, because he is only a freshman.
  • Said the more time that the team spends together, the more they like each other and the more they play together.
