01/21/2015 05:21 PM

Last night marked John Calipari’s 100th game at Rupp Arena as Kentucky’s head coach, and the 65-57 win over Vanderbilt was Coach Cal’s 96th home victory during that span, which is the best of any coach in school history.

Adolph Rupp and Rick Pitino went 94-6 in their first 100 home games. Joe B. Hall and Tubby Smith went 88-12 in theirs.

After last night’s milestone win over Vanderbilt, Coach Cal talked about the pillars of his program that have made these wins possible.
