John Calipari is having a press conference this afternoon.
Could he be announcing that Marcus Lee is coming back? Could it be to update the status of Isaiah Briscoe?
Maybe it is recruiting related and he knows Marques Bolden is going to sign with UK today?
Actually, I don’t think there is anything to read into the timing of today’s press conference. Here’s the statement UK released: “Due to some outstanding interview requests and because we were unable to conduct a season wrap-up media opportunity at the end of the basketball year, we will have an offseason media opportunity with Kentucky men’s basketball head coach John Calipari on Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Coliseum media room.”
The season wrap-up press conference has been something Calipari has done each season while he’s been at Kentucky. He normally reflects on the season and looks ahead to the next year. Expect a lot of chatter about the incoming players and what Calipari expects from returning players.
Who knows? He might even take another shot or two at Duke. Why stop now?
