John Calipari urges Kentucky players to ignore Final Four path chatter

John Calipari
The Kentucky Wildcats are suddenly the highest remaining seed in the NCAA Tournament’s South regional, with the top four seeds in the region falling to early upsets. That means the young Wildcats may have a surprise Final Four bid in their future.

John Calipari doesn’t want his players to listen to any of that, warning his players “don’t drink that poison.”

“The poison being we have an easy road,” Calipari said, via Alex Scarborough of ESPN. “If they drink the poison, we’ll be done on Thursday.”

Calipari thinks the talk could influence his young team “probably because they’re young and they know they don’t know better.”

“Don’t read it, don’t watch it,” Calipari said.

Calipari has been in fine form this tournament. Now he’s working on keeping a young team that might not necessarily have expected to have this scenario on front of them focused on the prize.
