Kentucky coach John Calipari only added to the already high expectations for his 2018-19 team with his comments after UK’s first practice Wednesday (new NCAA rules allow for coaches to work on the court with players for four hours per week in the summer).
“I am feeling good. We have a long way to go but the players are receptive,” Calipari said in a video posted on Twitter.
He noted that the team would shoot the ball better “than we have in a while” and that the Cats would have a “lot of weapons” to use this season.
Calipari said the first practice of 1 hour, 15 minutes was “really good” and that the team would practice longer today.
“I want to continue to add stuff if we can,” Calipari said.
He remembered how his 2014-15 team that started the season 38-0 did not have a bad practice all season because it was trying to win every game.
“Every game was a war but every practice was also a war. This team today started learning how to practice,” Calipari said.
