One air ball fell well short of the rim. Another sailed over it.
Two jump shots, two bad results for Alex Poythress. That was two games ago, when the Kentucky sophomore came up misfiring in a win against Cleveland State. And by now, John Calipari hopes Poythress has forgotten it.
He certainly didn’t during the game.
“I was kinda out of it,” Poythress said on Friday, as the Wildcats prepared to depart for Sunday’s game against Providence in Brooklyn, N.Y. “But you just got to learn to keep on playing. I just got to put that behind me.”
