Alex Poythress gets kiss from John Calipari after big plays
Alex Poythress made some huge plays late in the close Final Four game between Kentucky and Wisconsin on Saturday, and his contributions earned him the affection of his coach.
Kentucky was down by four 69-65 with under five minutes left in the game and Poythress threw down a dunk on Sam Dekker. He was fouled on the play, but he missed his free throw to keep it a 2-point game. A few minutes later, he put in another layup to give the Wildcats a crucial lead.
The run led Wisconsin to call a timeout, and Poythress was the recipient of a big kiss from John Calipari at the break.
Below is a GIF of the kiss:
And here’s a look at the dunk:
