LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK heads to Georgia Thursday night for a critical road game and coach John Calipari says time is runing out.
Just before flying to Athens, Calipari said its all about physical play. "At some point the lights got to go on and when it does, you're going to see a team and you've seen it at times. It's just, we've got to now, we don't have a whole lot of time, we're pressed now for time."
Kentucky wants a by in next week's SEC Tournament and a bid to the NCAA. Winning at Georgia would be a huge step in the right direction.
Calipari believes his team can play physical. "I don't think we have one player that's not capable of being physical and doing things that you have to do. But some times when the game gets crazy, we got guys who let go of the rope and we can't do that, especially at this point."
Calipari has said his team can still have a special season and despite Saturday's disappointing loss at Arkansas, he still has that vision. "I told them I believe in the team and I'm going out with the whole idea that we're going to write a heck of a story. This is going to be a heck of a story before it's all said and done, if you want it."
Kentucky and Georgia tipoff at 7:00 p.m. Thursday night. The game is televised by ESPN.
