Coach John Calipari and Kentucky are wanting to play UNC and Duke on a regular basis.
And when I say regular basis I mean every year. Kentucky and North Carolina both ended their annual series, 2001 to present, this year to take a break. They will resume the season after this up coming one. Kentucky will play Duke this year in Atlanta.
Billy Gillispie for Kentucky is like that girl you used to date that was crazy and made you say “I wish I never went there.” Sometimes however there can be good that comes out of it. The good for Kentucky was not only getting a new coach but also how he helped Jodie Meeks. “Former UK men’s basketball head coach Billy Gillispie’s tough minded and unconventional coaching style helped prepare Meeks for the NBA both mentally and physically.”
After Kentcky’s 3 year run of number one recruiting class, it has ended.
They have been beaten out by UCLA with the likes of Kyle Anderson and Shabazz Muhammad. However, by the way things look to be going for next years recruiting class, Kentucky should have the best recruiting class without any hesitation.
