Below is video footage of John Calipari's press conference following the win over UNC-Asheville. I apologize for the poor quality. This was an experiment with my smart phone which failed miserably but on the upside, the audio is good. Some key quotes from the conference:
“One of the reasons Darnell Dodson has not been playing is because he refuses to get tough and guard. Got to get him to think like the rest of these guys.”
“Eight turnovers in a game isn't enough and UK should aim for 11 or 12. Eight means you're not aggressive enough.”
“This next 10 days we will find out exactly where we are. It is not bad if we lose all three as long as we learn where we are and what we need to work on.”
“We don't execute well enough to be unleashed. You have to be vicious defensively to be unleashed.”
John Wall is an animal in the weight room.
“We still gotta get Patrick just dunking every ball around the rim.”
“I've never had a team shoot this well…in my life.”
