The first game since UK men’s basketball head coach John Calipari implemented his 7 a.m. conditioning program wasn’t exactly what he wanted. Flashes of it, however, were plenty to get the Cats a 74-46 win over Portland University on Saturday afternoon.
“We got better, but we’re still a ways away,” Calipari said. “We’re still doing the same things, only a little better than we were doing them.”
The Cats took a 35-20 lead into halftime, but it wasn’t as dominant as the score would indicate. UK’s play was sloppy at times, and Calipari seemed to never stop instructing (or screaming).
