Calipari Wants His Team To Toughen Up

No one — no one outside the Bluegrass State anyway — expected Kentucky young team in 2010-11 to duplicate the amazing feats of UK’s young team in 2009-10.  But most didn’t expect the kind of struggles these Cats have endured either.

UK is 16-5 overall but just 4-3 in the SEC.  They have lost three out of four on the road in the league and a game-and-a-half behind Florida in the East Division standings.  And now they will enter the toughest part of their schedule: at Florida, Tennessee at home, at Vanderbilt.  That as the Cats come off a shocking road loss at Ole Miss.

“… If you think this stuff’s hard, wait until you see what we’ve got coming up.  We’ve got a tough road.”

Calipari wants to see his team display more toughness in adverse situations as they move down that road.  “We’ve got to want it worse than the other team, and if we do that, we’re a pretty good team,” the coach told The Louisville Courier-Journal.  “We’re a step ahead.  If they want it worse than us, and they’re more physical and they’re grabbing and holding and we’re not fighting back, then we’re what you saw today.”
