Sophomore Kyle Wiltjer had 19 points in UK’s season-opening win over Maryland, but managed just five points on 2-for-5 shooting Tuesday and one basket came on a fast break dunk.
However, Calipari did not seem that upset with Wiltjer’s play after the game.
“Kyle led. He did some good things,” Calipari said. “They took him away. They did a great job saying he is not getting a shot off. They were out on him.”
Calipari said there was one time when Wiltjer tried to put a move on Ryan Kelly and had his shot blocked that he should not have shot.
Wiltjer had four assists and three rebounds.
“He got some tough rebounds in traffic. Four assists. He did not play that bad,” Calipari said. “He is little better than that. He played 11 minutes a game last year. When you are not making shots, what else can you do. Today he did not play that badly.”
