Freshman Aaron Harrison stepped up for the third straight game and hit a huge 3-pointer in the final minute to help the Wildcats advance, and now they are set to face UConn in the championship game Monday as a 3-point favorite.
In his interview with TBS after the big win, Calipari praised Huskies coach Kevin Ollie and the UConn program while admitting he knew nothing about them.
“I don’t know anything about them,” said Calipari. “The issue now I gotta be up all night watching tape getting ready for them. I know their guards are good and I know I recruited a bunch of their guys, so I know how good they are, but I don’t know how they play.”
Are you buying that from him? If he’s telling the truth, then he really won’t have much time to prepare for the game on Monday night.
We’re guessing some of his assistants have been watching tape on the Huskies and will have him up to speed before long.
