Pre-Pikeville Quotes
Oct. 29, 2010

UK Head Coach John Calipari

“It’s funny, I went with (UK) President (Lee) Todd to speak in Pikeville a couple of weeks ago and we walked into the convention center and in the arena, Pikeville was practicing! So I tried to do a little scouting, but they were just wrapping up. (Pikeville) Coach (Kelly) Wells does a great job with his team and it will be a good test for our young squad. I like that we are able to play other Kentucky schools and help them prepare for their season as well.

“We just need to continue to get better in all areas and I know our guys are looking forward to playing some other competition.”

“Playing Pikeville is going to be a great challenge for us to see how far our team and our team chemistry have come. It’s going to be a good opportunity to see how far along we are and a chance to see our friend, Landon Slone.”

#34 DeAndre Liggins, Jr., G

“I’m excited. The freshmen are going to be a little bit nervous but they’re going to get over it. I just want to come out and play hard. It’s the first game of the season; everyone’s going to be excited. We’re just trying to get the first game and take it one game at a time.”

#1 Darius Miller, Jr., G

“We’re looking forward to getting out to Rupp Arena and playing against some competition other than each other. I’m also looking forward to playing against my one of my high school teammates, Trevor (Setty), and my old high school coach Kelly Wells.”
