John Calipari took to his web site to post a defense of freshman guard Archie Goodwin.
At the UK basketball media opp today, the Kentucky coach was asked why he felt compelled to come to Goodwin’s defense in a public fashion. The coach said he had been told that the Arkansas native took some heat after UK’s loss at Alabama, which Calipari said he thought was unfair.
“We had two other guys play so bad, did they say anything about anybody else?” said Calipari. “Why would they say something about him. This kid works his butt off.”
