Calipari Comments on the Transylvania Exhibition Game
11/04/2011 08:40 AM
Coach Cal had a lot to say about UK’s 97-53 win over Transylvania, and not all of it was positive. The cats got off to a slow start, missing their first three shots as the Pioneers went on a 5-0 run. Transylvania kept Cat fans on edge for the first ten minutes of the game, but after that, the Cats blew ahead and never looked back. Still, Calipari says he has a lot of work ahead of him.
Freshman center Anthony Davis scored six points, grabbed eight rebounds and blocked eight shots before some intense cramping made him leave the game.
Cal did single out a player who he says, helped lead the team to victory: freshman forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Kidd-Gilchrist landed 19 points, seven rebounds, five assists and one block.
The Cats have one more exhibition game against Morehouse on Monday before opening the regular season next Friday against Marist.
