Calipari To Media - "Not Having Meeks Will Hurt Us"

Lexington, KY – Coach Cal says even though Meeks didn't get drafted until the second round by the Milwaukee Bucks, he thinks Jodie has a bright future in the pros. At the same time, Calipari says Meeks's departure from the Wildcats creates opportunities for other players. Calipari acknowledges that not having Jodie Meeks as a scoring option will hurt his team, at least early on. Calipari made his comments during Monday's SEC Coach's Teleconference.
