UK players wore black socks and block wristbands against Boston U Tuesday night to signify their mourning. Calipari’s mother, Donna, passed away at age 74 on Sunday.
Before the game, Calipari tweeted his appreciation of the gesture.
“It means a lot to me and is another sign of the kind of superb young men we have in our program,” he tweeted. “Thanks to all of (the Big Blue Nation) for your support.
“I’ll coach with a heavy heart tonight. But I know my mom is watching from the luxury boxes with a whole crew of UK luminaries cheering along with her.”
