It is Oct. 7, and the Kentucky men’s basketball team doesn’t play its first regular-season game until Nov. 13. For that head coach John Calipari is very thankful.
Beginning Oct. 2, the two hours per week rule was lifted and Kentucky could begin its normal practice routine of 20 hours per week. After its first practice Friday, UK went through two-a-days Saturday and Sunday and one more on Monday. This report is from Monday’s afternoon session at the Joe Craft Center.
