Former Cat Derek Willis talked with Jerry Tipton of the Lexington Herald-Leader about his career at Kentucky and he has some regrets.

“I had the wrong approach about it,” said Willis. “[When practice ended] I’d just pretty much leave the gym and go with friends and do whatever. I could have spent another hour and worked on really anything. I had the wrong mental approach about it, and I think that’s what held me back.”

Willis didn’t emerge as an impact player for Kentucky until his junior season. He averaged 5.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game during his four seasons at Kentucky.

Bradley McKee and Clayton Abernathy discuss Willis’ comments and look back at his career at Kentucky.
