A few weeks ago before he could start 10 days of practice to prepare his team for its four exhibition games in the Bahamas, Kentucky coach John Calipari said he wanted both Reid Travis and P.J. Washington to be bullies for UK this season.

So what does he think now that practice has actually started?

“We’re a physical team that we haven’t been because you can also throw Keldon (Johnson) in there with a couple of the guards – both Immanuel (Quickley) and Ashton (Hagans),” Calipari said Wednesday. “You’re talking about a physical bunch.

“Those two (Washington and Travis) have played together, I think, once. The rest of the time they’ve gone against each other, and I think I’m going to have them going against each other today.

“I was going to do something different but I’m just going to go with what we’ve been doing right now. They’ve done fine. Tell them, ‘When you’re on the court together, make sure you’re playing for each other.’ ”
