Kentucky coach John Calipari said today he knew Alex Oriakhi was not going to transfer to UK when he left Connecticut. But he knows what an impact he has made for Missouri going into Saturday night’s game with UK.
“I met with he and his family. He’s a great kid and a terrific basketball player. Really physical and tough. Has made them. Without him, they’re not the same team,” Calipari said. “Without him, they’re not where they are right now. So it was a great pickup for Frank.
“I just watched their Florida game. They’re a good team. They’re good. They ball. They’re not afraid. They’ll fight, they’ll battle. They’ll make tough plays. They got more than one player that can make a play, so they don’t have to run plays to make baskets. They have players that make plays. They’re good.”
