LEX18 Sports 6pm: Getting Ready For Missouri And The Yahoo Sports Report


THE COURT, A BOMBSHELL REPORT FROM YAHOO SPORTS COULD TURN INTO A DISTRACTION FOR THESE YOUNG WILDCATS… YAHOO SPORTS DETAILED RECORDS FROM AMS AGENCY WHERE THREE WILDCATS WERE LINKED TO BEING GIVEN MONETARY BENEFITS… ALTHOUGH NERLENS NOEL TOOK MONEY IT WAS AFTER HE LEFT UK… BAM ADEBAYO RECEIVED A 12,500 DOLLAR LOAN AND ANOTHER FOR 36,500 DOLLARS THAT WAS LISTED AS A BAD LOAN BECAUSE HE DIDN’T SIGN WITH THE AGENCY… THEN THERE’S CURRENT WILDCAT, KEVIN KNOX, WHO WAS LISTED AS HAVING A DINNER WITH AN AGENT… THERE IS A POSSIBILITY HE SHOULD SIT WHILE UK HAS A CHANCE TO INVESTIGATE TO MAKE SURE HE’S NOT INELIGIBLE… COACH CALIPARI ADDRESSED THAT SOMEWHAT TODAY AT HIS PRESS CONFERENCE… REPORTER-HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO KEVIN ABOUT THIS? JOHN CALIPARI-NO. DEWAYNE PEEVEY-ARE THERE ANY GAMES ABOUT THE GAME TOMORROW? REPORTER-WILL KEVIN PLAY TOMORROW? CALIPARI-AT THIS POINT, I BELIEVE SO. IF THERE’S SOMETHING THAT I DON’T KNOW. PEEVY-LIKE I SAID, ONCE AGAIN, THERE’S NOTHING ADDITIONAL TO WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW. EARLIER IN THE DAY, COACH CALIPARI HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT THE REPORT… I HAVE NO RELATIONSHIP WITH ANDY MILLER OR ANY OF HIS ASSOCIATES. NEITHER MY STAFF NOR I UTILIZED ANY AGENT, INCLUDING ANDY MILLER OR ANY OF HIS ASSOCIATES, TO PROVIDE ANY FINANCIAL BENEFITS TO A CURRENT OR FORMER KENTUCKY STUDENT- ATHLETE. WE WILL COOPERATE FULLY WITH THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES. AND UK ATHLETICS DIRECTOR, MITCH BARNHART SAID… WE ARE AWARE OF THE REPORT TODAY BY YAHOO! SPORTS. WE HAVE NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY THE FBI OR THE NCAA, BUT SINCE LEARNING OF THE REPORT, WE HAVE REACHED OUT TO BOTH THE NCAA AND OUR LEAGUE OFFICE. WE WILL BE CONDUCTING AN INTERNAL REVIEW. AT THIS TIME, WE HAVE NO FURTHER COMMENT. KENTUCKY MUST PUT ALL OF THIS ASIDE AND TRY TO GET A MUCH- NEEDED WIN AGAINST MISSOURI TOMORROW NIGHT… THE CATS HOST THE TIGERS AT 8:15 IN A GAME THAT’S ON ESPN… UK IS TRYING TO MAKE UP FOR A NINE POINT LOSS EARLIER THIS MONTH AT MISSOURI… JOHN CALIPARI-WE’RE GETTING BETTER, BUT IT’S ALL GAME TO GAME WITH A YOUNG GROUP LIKE THIS. IT’S ALL GAME TO GAME. WE’RE DOING SOME GOOD STUFF, BUT WE JUST GOTTA KEEP GETTING BETTER. GUYS GOTTA FALL INTO THOSE ROLES AND THEN BE GOOD AT WE NEED THEM TO BE GOOD AT COLLECTIVELY. THE KENTUCKY WOMEN GOT A BIG WIN LAST NIGHT AT OLE MISS… SUNDAY AT NOON THE WILDCATS HAVE THEIR FINAL GAME OF THE REGULAR SEASON… SENIOR DAY… WHEN THEY HOST MISSISSIPPI STATE… IT’S A BULLDOGS TEAM THAT’S UNBEATEN IN 29 GAMES AND RANKED NUMBER TWO IN THE COUNTRY… ALYSSA RICE-BEING ABLE TO BUILD UPON THE KENTUCKY LEGACY I THINK WAS VERY IMPORTANT. JUST BEING ABLE TO DISPLAY TO THEM WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A KENTUCKY WILDCAT, MAKING SURE THAT THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT POSITION THEY’RE IN AND THE PLATFORM THEY’VE BEEN GIVEN.
