Too often this season Skal Labissiere and I have had the same number of rebounds in games. Kentucky coach John Calipari has been on Labissiere about his rebounding for months — and that won’t change tonight against Georgia.
“That’s something I think about all the time,” Labissiere said Monday about his rebounding woes.
It has been so bad that against Florida when the 7-foot freshman got a rebound the Rupp Arena crowd cheered.
“I heard some. I heard a little bit,” he said.
He called it a “good thing” for fans to cheer like that. He also said it was okay for UK fans to pay attention to every detail.
“I think everything is magnified here at Kentucky. So I think the fans definitely really pay attention to everything we do,” he said. “It’s just something that you just have to get used to.”
