Many   are wondering what to expect from their fourth-ranked Cats on Tuesday night, as they face their first Power Five opponent,  State, of the season.

Turns out  head coach  is wondering the exact same thing.

“I have no idea what to expect,” Calipari admitted on Monday. “First of all, I don’t know if (Oscar Tshiebwe) is playing or how much he’ll play. Sahvir (Wheeler) just joined (the team). Daimion (Collins) had two days of practice before he left, then he came back. How’s he doing? That’s why I’ve said all along – it’s going to take us time to get this right.”

The biggest question remains about Tsheibwe, the defending National Player of the Year. He has missed ’s games against and while recovering from a procedure on his knee. Calipari was non-committal on Monday.

“He’s supposed to practice (Monday), so we’ll have a better idea,” Calipari said. “He’s been doing the conditioning stuff but he hasn’t been on that court and that’s totally different. My guess would be he plays three or four minutes in a stretch – if he plays.”
