UK basketball coach John Calipari has nothing but praise for his new team. At least, that’s what he told reporters this week during a news conference at the Joe Craft Center. Coach Cal says practices have been going extremely well, and he’s incorporating some of the things he learned this summer coaching the Dominicans.
And he’s really high on Terrence Jones, who he says, is the player to keep an eye on all season long.
Calipari also has a lot to say about what he’s seeing during practice with the new guys and the veterans. He praised the effort and intensity from his entire team, and highlighted two players in particular.
The storied coach also discussed what his team must do if they want to find themselves playing (and winning) in the tournament next Spring.
A media poll picked UK as the team that will bring home the SEC title this season. UK finished second behind North Carolina in the coaches’ first national poll.
