LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK coach John Calipari says hes been through it before. Trying to get his young, talented team to come around early in the season, Cal recalled the 2011 season when the Cats made the Final Four.
"I've been through this with teams." said Calipari following UK's loss to North Carolina Saturday. I was through this in 2011 where I had a talented team and we just couldn't win close games."
That season Calipari said his team lost every road game but still made the Final Four in Houston. "Should have won the natiional title. Will this team do it? If they change, that team came around, that team really became a good team. We were the best team in 2011 in the end, Connecticut had the best player."
Kentucky lost to UConn in the semifinal 56-55. Kemba Walker scores 18 points, pulled down six rebounds and dished out seven assists against UK.
