John Calipari offers praise for Tennessee after Kentucky collapse

John Calipari

John Calipari could have been livid with his Kentucky Wildcats after they blew a 17-point lead in a home loss to Tennessee on Tuesday. Instead, he kept things in perspective and credited the Vols for their effort.

Calipari praised Tennessee for coming back from a big deficit in the second half, even calling the accomplishment “impressive.”

The Kentucky coach also complimented John Fulkerson, who scored 27 points for Tennessee, and said the Vols were the more physical team.

This is the kind of game that Calipari just wants to flush, put it behind them, and not watch the video.

The loss has to be a huge disappointment for Calipari and Kentucky fans. They had won eight in a row, including a road win at Tennessee, prior to the loss. The Cats are now 24-6 and have Saturday’s regular season finale at Florida before the SEC Tournament. Their case for a No. 1 or 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament will depend on how the conference tournament goes.
