From the Athletics office:  “After a recent interview session with men’s basketball player Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, the Lexington Herald-Leader took the liberty of rewriting a question from the transcript in a way that we feel sensationalizes the story and was unfair to Michael and his family.  While the Herald-Leader thought their actions warranted a clarification, the newspaper has not issued a public apology to Michael or his family.  Because it is our responsibility and duty to protect our student athletes and we feel an apology from the Lexington Herald-Leader was necessary, will no longer be available for interviews with the Herald-Leader.”
