LEXINGTON — At Wednesday’s SEC Media Day, Kentucky coach John Calipari explained how he thought his team could be one of his best defensive teams.
Kentucky looked anything but like a great defensive team in Friday’s Blue-White Game. Yet that did nothing to change the UK coach’s mind about his team’s defense.
“We really guarded on the ball really good. It all starts right there. You have De’Aaron Fox, you have Dom (Hawkins), you have Malik (Monk), you have Isaiah (Briscoe). They can all guard the ball, which means you’re not getting broken down, having to rotate,” Calipari said.
