It’s still 11 days until Kentucky plays its first exhibition game in the Bahamas and coach John Calipari continues to do nothing to lower expectations for this team.
“Had our first of 10 days of practice yesterday before the Bahamas. I continue to be impressed with this group’s toughness and work capacity,” Calipari posted on Twitter.
Kentucky fans are feeling that and much more about this team that is already considering one of the favorites to win the 2019 national championship.
“Got a lot done in two hours, including defense for the first time this summer. If we are going to be special, defense and rebounding will be the key. Lots of experimenting and lots of fun,” Calipari added on Twitter.
Calipari said the same thing about defense last year but it never quite worked that way.
