After Kentucky’s four-game sweep in the Bahamas — remember coach John Calipari said UK might lose two or three games in the Bahamas before the team left — the UK coach said rebounding and turnovers were two key statistics to take note of.
He was particularly impressed that UK averaged only 11 turnovers per game after just 10 days of practice with only three returning players.
“That means you have a skilled team that is unselfish,” Calipari said.
Then he dropped this tidbit that Kentucky fans certainly hope is true.
“We are not going to average 100 (points) per game but we will maybe average more than any team I have coached,” Calipari said.
He guessed his highest scoring team at UK probably averaged about 80 points per game.
“That’s what this team will average. That’s a lot for us because teams will not let us run and they will try to shorten the game. That’s what I see,” Calipari said.
