Coach Cal Readies Big Blue Faithful For Next Campaign

Lexington, KY – Thursday at the annual UK basketball media day, UK Coach John Calipari said the new crop of recruits is talented, but very much a work in progress.

"There's so many things, I almost stop them and don't believe I have to teach some of the stuff. But then I think back and remember to last October and November of last year. These kids are the same."

Coach Cal says besides Darius Miller, Josh Harrelson, and DeAndre Liggins, a lot will ride on how quickly his talented freshmen learn to play together.

The 2010-2011 campaign gets under way Friday night with the annual Big Blue Madness extravaganza at Rupp Arena.
