After sitting out the past 10 days and missing the last game, starting shooting guard Brady Heslip is ready to go and is expected to play this afternoon against the Cats.
Coach Calipari said the Cats are still not playing without a “will to win”, something that they will need to bring to the court today. “The one thing they have to bring is a competitive spirit and a will to win. I’ll help them with all the other stuff.”
