No team has ever gone from NCAA champion to NIT first-round loser to NCAA champion in the span of three seasons. So why won’t Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari shy away from the idea of a perfect season? “Why not try to coach an undefeated team? Because they say it can’t be done …” Calipari said. “… Before I retire I’d like to do it.”
Calipari stopped by Boyd County High School on Wednesday morning as part of the annual Satellite Camp Tour. He signed paraphernalia and posed for pictures for about 45 minutes before addressing 5- to 12-year-olds about how to approach the game and stay committed.
Calipari, along with assistants Kenny Payne and John Robic, current players Todd Lanter and Brian Long, as well as former player Marquis Estill were all in attendance for the third of five total tour days. The group traveled to Montgomery County on Wednesday afternoon.
