LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - Since John Calipari has been in Lexington he has been fortunate to have players who have been able to step up in crucial situations.
John Wall was 'the guy' in 2010. Brandon Knight hit several big shots leading UK to a Final Four in 2011. But Calipari says he won't know about this year's go-to guy until the team is faced with adversity in a real game.
"Don't know yet because what will happen is there's three parts of this," says Cal. "There are guys that I will want to have the ball and they don't want it. And then there's guys that really want the ball and I don't want them to have it. And then there's guys that want the ball and I want them to have it, and the only way you figure that out is in those close, tough games. It comes down to who made the plays, who made the free throws."
