John Calipari praised the growth of two former pupils while attending Friday night’s Kings/Lakers game. In a courtside interview with NBC Sports California’s Kayte Christensen, the University of Kentucky head coach applauded the development of both Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein.
Calipari on Skal:
“I look at Skal and the progress. I give Sac credit, these guys are working with him. He’s playing more confident. They’re putting him in positions he can have success. I didn’t do as good a job as they did.”
Calipari on Willie:
“Willie is doing what he does. He’s flying up and down that floor. He’s blocking shots. He seems to have some freedom to do the stuff he does well.”
