LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - John Calipari called again for change after his team held off Auburn Wednesday night, 64-56.
Calipari said it's time. "Our emotions are tied to our offense. I told 'em after the game, at some point if you want to be special, that's got to change. Your emotions have got to be tied to our defense teamwise. That's it, nothing else, But it's hard. And they said it, coach we're trying, but it's hard."
The Cats competed pulling down 22 offensive rebounds against Auburn. Kentucky shot only 30.8 percent for the game but held Auburn to 32.7 percent. "It shows that we are a tough team, were not just scoring and stuff like that." said Andrew Harrison. "We can stop people as well. We're a young team and we're just getting better every day.
Kentucky now gets ready to host Florida Saturday night with ESPN Gameday in town. Tipoff will be at 9:00 p.m.
