Kentucky coach John Calipari didn’t change his stance on the NCAA selection committee when he got back to Lexington Sunday night after bashing the committee several times during the SEC Tournament in Nashville.
“Texas A&M as a three (seed) is another way of doing it. Who we’re playing, those teams are, you know, we knew West Virginia would be there. Indiana, North Carolina and we got the toughest path,” Calipari said.
“Stony Brook, I watched that game. They’re good. They’re good. They’ve got a big kid that had 40 points in a game against Vermont, and like I said, I just happened to be laying there and I watched some of the game.
“But this is how it is. It’s every year the same. Need to look at some other teams. They got a great path and we’ve got this, you know. I bet you they’ll try to switch over and put the Warriors in there. I don’t know if they can make a late call, but we’re playing.
“Let’s show up. Where is it? Where are we playing? I thought it was Anchorage—Des Moines? I like Des Moines. See, if it was in Anchorage, I was going to have the (Alaska) Bush people. They were going to be there and, you know, the Kilchers from The Last Frontier. You’re going to have them in the front row.”
