UK Head Coach on His Team’s Performance: College Basketball Not Communism

On Thursday, University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari reacted to his team’s performance, or lack thereof, in his halftime interview during Kentucky’s game against Hampton, an inferior opponent.

Calipari explained on CBS that he told his team, up 41-22 during intermission, that basketball is not communism.

“I keep saying, ‘This is not communism. You’ve got to perform. You go in there and don’t perform, I’m not playing you,’” he said.

Kentucky improved to 35-0 with the 79-56 victory over the 16-seed Hampton Pirates.
