It’s SGA.  He does it all, on the floor and off.

Lifting, class, tutors, meetings, everything is done with a smile.

It’s discipline across the board and the guys are all now getting it.

It’s simple; to get better and win…you must give in.

It’s one thing to say it, but when your own son plays for you, is it tough to not enable him?

Are there any detractors in Brad Calipari’s inner circle?

Cal says not likely…except maybe one.

Hear from Cal in the video.
