John Calipari on the crowd's ovation for Kyle Wiltjer during Kentucky's win over Portland last Saturday.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - After hitting a shooting slump, Kentucky sophomore Kyle Wiltjer rebounded in UK's win over Portland last Saturday. Cats' coach John Calipari attributed an ovation from the Rupp Arena crowd for Wiltjer to his actual rebounds.

"Did you see the fans gave Kyle Wiltjer a great ovation? Can you tell me what that was for? Tell me why they did it," Calipari asked. "He rebounded a couple balls. You know he didn't have a rebound in the first half.

"Our fans will cheer him.  He only had three rebounds.  Acted like he had 12.  But he got three in traffic that they haven't seen in eight games.  Well, that's what we've been doing in practice.  There were loose balls he didn't get, he had to sit down, you're not playing."
