UK Coach John Calipari noted the progress made by Jon Hood.
“Really come on as our eighth man,” the UK coach said.
While saying Hood looked like Rex Chapman in a recent practice, Calipari hinted that the sophomore from Madisonville had to believe he could play that well in games.
“I just think he has that thing over top of him that he has to break through,” the UK coach said. “I told him, I’ve got a lot of confidence in you. . . . It’s just that thing. When they get over it, when they do it, they take it to another level.”
