Who doesn’t love a good bargain?
Well, add John Calipari and most of America to the list.
However, not everyone gets to take down a top-10 team in the country and then end up having a celebratory lap at Costco. That’s just a Coach Cal special one could say.
Kentucky beat the No. 9-ranked Tar Heels at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. It was Calipari’s sixth win over a top-10 UNC team in seven tries while at Kentucky.
Calipari has one of the most impressive coaching resumes in college basketball history, but that doesn’t stop him from “digging for gold” like everyone else does around this time of the year.
Kentucky will next be in action on December 21st in the annual in-state rivalry battle with the Louisville Cardinals. Game time is set for 6 pm ET on ESPN.
