Credit WKYT-TV for being in Hazard Thursday when John Calipari, Mark Stoops and Matthew Mitchell were there as part of 1st Trust Bank’s “Meet the Coaches” event.
WKYT-TV had this insightful comment from Calipari about team toughness.
“Tough guys win. It puts us on our toes for this coming year which is there’s no given. Just because you have really good players doesn’t mean you’re going to win. It gives you a leg up but it doesn’t do it,” Calipari said. “For anyone to tell you they can win with bad players, the players were good or you wouldn’t win. But if you want to win championships, it’s the best players who play well together and become the best team.”
