LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari said he's disappointed more with himself than he is any individual player on his team. Calipari put a message on his website Thursday, saying he always takes 24 hours after a loss to sort things out before moving on to the next game. He said it was up to him to figure it out.
As for playing tough mentally and physically, Calipari said his team is doing none of that right now and it all comes back to him. He said his will has always been stronger and longer than any individual player or the team as a whole and he hasn't given up. " I can only tell you that I haven't given up any individual player on this team because guys like Kyle Wiltjer have gotten it and are improving."
Calipari said it's now up to him to get other players to buy in. "Whether that's changing how we practice, our mental approach or the communication of how we want things done, that's on me to figure out."
Calipari concluded by saying. "I'm disappointed, Big Blue Nation, but I like my team and I believe we can still turn the corner."
