Kentucky coach John Calipari called the Rupp Arena crowd “unbelievable” after UK held Florida scoreless the final 7 minutes, 36 seconds Saturday. Ironically, Calipari asked UK fans on Twitter to stand up the final eight minutes of the game to support the team.
“I was home, driving in, thinking, ‘What else can we do? What edge can we get? We’re doing two things to the players. Here is how we’re going to do it. We have a game plan. What else?’” Calipari said. “We need the fans to take us over the hump. The last eight minutes, we need you standing to carry us over the finish line. And they did. That building was unbelievable. That was as loud as we’ve been in four years. The great thing is the crowd knows this team is so young that they really need them.”
Freshman Archie Goodwin said the crowd was “great” and definitely helped.
“I thought Missouri was great, but this was unbelievable,” Goodwin said. “I hope they all come to Nashville (for the SEC Tournament). The fans just wouldn’t let us lose.”
