LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari called for his team to be more focused Monday and said Vanderbilt tricked his players in Saturday's game in Nashville.
"Ya know part of our issue is the focus we have at times on that court." said Calipari. "You have to have a sense of urgency and a sense of purpose on each possession and we don't always do it. Guys will stop and they're pointing to go guard their man who came off a screen or stop playing and a guy back cuts."
"And we told them, Vandy's going to try to trick you into baskets, and they did." said Calipari. "They probably got 20 points on trick. You get beat because they're better than you, they execute, not trick you into a layup or slip into a dunk, those kind of things. And we had gone over it, obviously we didn't have a whole lot of time but you have to be focused and we're not quite ready for that yet."
Kentucky travels to Arkansas Tuesday looking for its second SEC road win. Tipoff will be at 9:00 p.m. on ESPN.
