Liggins Speaks

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky guard DeAndre Liggins admits he
was worried about his future with the Wildcats when he refused to
enter a game in Las Vegas last month.
Liggins raised eyebrows when he stayed on the bench rather than
enter the game in the second half of a victory over Kansas State.
The freshman said he was simply angry because he felt he should
have a larger role on the team.
Speaking for the first time about the incident following an easy
win over Central Michigan on Monday night, Liggins told reporters
he simply "had a bad day." Liggins said he and coach Billy
Gillispie are now seeing eye to eye and that he's trying to be a
better teammate.
Liggins had six points and a team-high eight assists against the
Chippewas in his first start of the season and said he hopes to be
in the starting lineup again on Sunday when the Wildcats face No.
18 Louisville.
