Amid Brutal Honesty, John Calipari Gives Funny Derek Willis Update After Vandy Loss [VIDEO]
It's always good to maintain your sense of humor, especially after taking on your 8th loss of the season. And that's what UK coach John Calipari did.
First, he answered everyone's questions about the 74-62 loss to Vanderbilt in Nashville on Saturday afternoon and he, quite honestly, wasn't upset. There was some disappointment, sure, but if you're looking for a foaming-at-the-mouth kind of demeanor, look elsewhere.
Actually, I've seen Calipari answer questions the same way after a WIN, so, again, nothing new here.
But there was room for humor toward the end of the video regarding Derek Willis' sprained ankle and whether or not the junior small forward will be available for Tuesday's road game at Florida.
Here's the press conference:
And, if you're looking for a point of reference regarding that Derek Willis comment, take a look at this, if you dare:
Willis is currently in a walking boot and the ankle isn't close to being that swollen anymore, but I'd be willing to bet he isn't on the floor in Gainesville in three days.
He needs to rest and elevate that ankle. Kentucky needs this kid in the post-season. He's been a difference-maker.
