Bobby Knight Blasts UK Coach John Calipari

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Bobby Knight said integrity is lacking in
college basketball and cited Kentucky coach John Calipari as an
example.
During a fundraiser for the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame,
Knight said he doesn't understand why Calipari is still coaching.
"We've gotten into this situation where integrity is really
lacking and that's why I'm glad I'm not coaching," he said. "You
see we've got a coach at Kentucky who put two schools on probation
and he's still coaching. I really don't understand that."
Both of Calipari's former schools were sanctioned by the NCAA
for violations committed during his tenure.
Knight, the former Indiana and Texas Tech coach who won a record
902 games, did not elaborate or take questions from reporters.
