Cal: This team loves to play basketball

It’s only July and there are still three months until Big Blue Madness — the official start to the 2014-15 UK basketball season — but the Wildcats, both newcomers and veterans, are already on the court and getting ready for the upcoming year.

Under NCAA rules, coaches can conduct two hours of team skill instruction per week at this time of the year, so John Calipari worked his guys out on Tuesday night for the first time this season before hitting the road to recruit on Wednesday.

No surprise here, but Coach Cal, who had hip replacement surgery two months ago, was excited to get back on the court again. Check out what he thought of the session below.
