John Calipari, Kentucky basketball await NCAA seeding

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Sitting at a table late Friday night following his team’s loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals, Kentucky coach John Calipari made it clear: If his club is going to extend its season past next week, it needs to get healthy.


“We’ve got to get three or four good practices in with a full team. It’s going to be vital,” Calipari said. “It will be vital. We have to have them on the floor.”

The Wildcats (21-11) were near full strength — at least in terms of bodies available — in the 80-73 loss to the Commodores; senior guard Sahvir Wheeler was the only player unavailable. But that doesn’t mean UK was healthy. Freshman guard Cason Wallace returned from a one-game absence after a leg injury. Senior guard CJ Fredrick continues to fight a lingering rib injury.
