Kentucky ran past Samford on Tuesday night in the first half, which was all the Wildcats needed to do to break a two-game slide and win 88-56. After that the Cats, jogged, walked, and if you ask John Calipari, sleepwalked their way through the second half. For lack of running in the second half, they’ll run Thursday morning. And the morning after that, and the morning after that.
Because of Tuesday’s discouraging second half, Coach Cal has instituted a three-week conditioning program. The Cats will rise and shine before their classes every day and condition with strength and conditioning coach Rock Oliver.
“Strap ‘em on, boys,” Calipari said after the game.
