John Calipari’s technical foul in Sweet 16 leads to friendship

John Calipari

One of the more curious calls in basketball history started a chain of events that led to  becoming one of UK’s walk-on players this coming season.  His father, Joe Malone, was a Massachusetts state treasurer in 1992 when he turned on the television in his Boston area home to watch upstart play mighty in an Tournament Sweet 16 game.  with good memories will recall refusing to lose, to borrow a phrase, and rallying in the second half.
