Calipari laments Kentucky's lack of discipline: 'You can't play that way'

  Calipari laments Kentucky's lack of discipline: 'You can't play that way' In his immediate assessment of Kentucky's 81-78 loss at South Carolina on Wednesday, John Calipari kept returning to one word: discipline. The UK coach said players improvised rather than run called plays. Players left South Carolina shooters open in the corners, a no-no even the casual Kentucky basketball fan knows. The failed to block out: South Carolina’s 20 offensive rebounds were a season high for a UK opponent.

Poker is a game of planning and the check-raise is a prime example. Unless you know what you’re trying to accomplish by check-raising you’ll just be burning money. The most common situation where the check-raise can be used as a bluff is in a heads-up pot when you’ve called out of position.

John Robic , John Calipari's top lieutenant at Kentucky , takes care of all the details, allowing Calipari to focus on Robic is hands-on before games , too. He sits and watches both teams warm up. He runs drills for the guards But those close to Calipari say that Robic ’s value goes well beyond X’s and O’s.

Kentucky and Texas Tech just delivered college basketball fans with an absolute thriller of an overtime slugfest.

The Wildcats were ultimately able to edge out the Red Raiders in Lubbock by a final score of 76-74, and the immediate interactions between players and coaching staff saw a bit of hostility arise from an unlikely source.


Per Kyle Tucker of The Athletic, Kentucky assistant John Robic approached Tech's scorekeeper and called him a cheater while the two teams shook hands.

'They're fighting for their livelihoods.' UK's intensity can yield unintended results.

  'They're fighting for their livelihoods.' UK's intensity can yield unintended results. Referees called 52 fouls against Kentucky players in last week's two games. On average, that's about a foul every 90 seconds. At a news conference Monday, assistant coach Tony Barbee offered an explanation that UK fans might not have seriously considered. "We did a lot of fouling," Barbee said. Barbee suggested that competitive practices that UK wants to produce the highly coveted will to win can also lead to excessive fouling. “Coach wants the practices to be harder than the game …,” Barbee said of UK Coach John Calipari. “And when they are that competitive, (UK players are) fighting their brothers and their teammates.

He left the game after making two free throws. He can make threes, he’s the leading scorer in the program and he has the size and athleticism to guards threes or fours. With six games left against Kansas, Baylor, West Virginia and Texas Tech , there are plenty of resume-boosting wins available.

Tucker notes that Robic's animosity derived from a controversial ruling on Kentucky point guard Tyrese Maxey. A miscalculation on the part of the stat attendant saw the freshman standout foul out having only committed four infringements. After a brief review, however, Maxey was ruled eligible to return to action.

Given the enthralling dogfight that SEC and Big 12 powerhouses just encountered, you would think that tensions would boil over between the players.

Not in this case. In fact, the 56-year-old assistant apparently unleashed some NSFW utterances in the direction of the Red Raiders staffer.

Robic definitely isn't getting over that gaffe anytime soon. In his eyes, it was an error intended to deprive Kentucky of their most dynamic playmaker down the stretch.
