Calipari has decided to ramp up the intensity and begin practicing twice a day

basketball coach John Calipari decided to ramp up the intensity as the Wildcats prepared for their second and final pre-season exhibition game Friday night.  The coach told the team at a 10 p.m. meeting on Tuesday that they would begin two-a-day practices starting with the first one at 6:15 a.m. Wednesday.  Freshman DeMarcus Cousins said the coach got the players' attention.  “We knew it was not play time anymore,” Cousins said Thursday. “It's a new Coach Cal — intense and focused. It's not the laid-back, chilled Cal no more.”  Original article, written by , is here.
