Kentucky response: Kentucky coach John Calipari at a news conference Wednesday discussed losing Wiggins to KU.
“I’m as confident before and after his decision,” Calipari told the Sporting News’ Mike DeCourcy. “I wish him well. He’s a great kid and is going to be a terrific basketball player. I was confident in this team and what we have before and after.”
Calipari said his young Wildcat team will try to go undefeated.
“We’re chasing perfection. We’re chasing greatness. We’re chasing things that have never been done before in the history of this game,” Calipari said. “It’s never been done … in the modern era.”
No team has gone undefeated since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.
“It wakes you up a little earlier in the morning,” Calipari said in the Sporting News. “I don’t mind a little pressure. You know what? I’m at my best when the gun is to my head. Players are the same. I’m not saying if we lose a game, it is not a successful season. No. But you’re chasing greatness. What’s wrong with that?”
I'd love to see someone put a .... naaaaah. But the imagery is kind of fun.
