John Calipari previews the season in an in-depth Q and A with local media members.

Campers got to learn from and interact with former Kentucky pros at the John Calipari Prasco Pro Camps, and our CoachCal.com photographer Chris Reynolds was there to document it all.
Just in case you don’t follow our website account on Twitter (@CoachCalDotCom) or on Vine, I thought I’d post the collection of Vines we’ve been sending out over the last two days from the John Calipari Prasco Pro Camps. There is some pretty priceless action of Nerlens Noel, Archie Goodwin and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist interacting with the kids.
Back in town for the annual John Calipari Prasco Pro Camps, former Wildcats Nerlens Noel, Archie Goodwin, Julius Mays and Twany Beckham spoke with the media about playing in the professional ranks, their future plans, what they’ve seen from the 2013-14 team and more.
