Cats make weeklong road trip out of Tennessee game

Because of last week’s winter storms, coach John Calipari’s team spent a week in Tennessee. The Cats left Lexington early for a Wednesday game at Vanderbilt and then stayed in Tennessee until after Saturday’s win at Tennessee.

Kentucky assistant coach Bruiser Flint said being on the road a week was not that hard on players, especially with the COVID protocols they have had this year, as long as practice facilities were available and UK had no problems with that.

“These kids today. It’s not like the old days where you went outside. These kids they plug up stuff on their TV. They can entertain themselves, believe me, for hours on end without being outside,” Flint said. “I mean it’s tough. We had to leave, and it was a last second thing, last minute thing to get everybody together and go.

“But it was a smart thing to do looking at the weather and everything.”

It was also a smart way to help team bonding, something UK had missed this season with COVID protocols, as shown by the 15-point win at Tennessee.
