Sacha Killeya-Jones missed Kentucky’s loss at Texas A&M Saturday to attend his grandfather’s funeral.
He was with Kentucky at Auburn Wednesday night, but didn’t play again.
”I told him prior to the game I’d probably go small. So I told him prior, I said, ‘Nick (Richards), you and Sacha, I’m just going to tell you right now, if I think we’re better playing a smaller lineup…’” coach John Calipari said.
“Because they’re not the physical—like what Texas A&M is is physical. So those two guys being there (for A&M) really bothered these guys. Those two are not that way. So now all of a sudden, their physique, Auburn’s, they way they play against those two I didn’t like that.
“But I liked PJ (Washington) and I liked Jarred (Vanderbilt).”
