LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari called on his players to invest more time in bettering their game Monday, and less time playing video games. Calipari used a former player has an example.

" Brandon (Knight) did it, Brandon did it." said Calipari. "Ya know, how much do you have to play video games, really? I mean you have to get those two hours of video in or how are you going to live? You got to be on your phone reading everything, I mean that's tough, I cannot give up my video games."

Brandon Knight played one season for Calipari, helping lead the Cats to the FInal Four in 20011. "All I've got to say is Brandon was a straight A student and when I walked in this building at twelve o'clock at night or eleven o'clock at night from recruiting he was in there, and he's up there (NBA) scoring 30. Think about it, and he's skinnier than anybody we have on this team."

Kentucky hits the road to Arkansas Tuesday night. Tipoff will be at 9:00 p.m. on ESPN.
