At his press conference today, John Calipari had two really interesting personnel observations.
First, sophomore Alex Poythress, a starter last year and bench player this year who has been up and down.
“Alex was as good as I have ever seen him anywhere at any time in our last practice,” Calipari said. “Not only did he play, but he sustained. Yesterday’s practice he went from good to really good to great. I was like amazed. Hopefully he is starting to get it.”
Second, little-used freshman forward Derek Willis.
“We need to get him in (games). Play as stretch four where he can shoot jumpers. He has got to compete in practice, but he has been great the last couple of practices,” Calipari said.
