Kentucky basketball

Kentucky stunned by No. 15 seed Saint Peter's, a new March Madness low for John Calipari

John Calipari built perennial contenders at Kentucky with the very best amateur basketball players in America.

He shunned experience for one-and-dones Americans . He took in high school All-and churned out NBA lottery picks.

He won championships and hundreds of games along the way.

In 2021, he changed his approach, but, backed by a $20 million budget and reams of history, he built a new-look Goliath.

It was brilliant basketball and ugly basketball and dramatic basketball all at once. 

Saint Peter's had no direct rebuttal for the junior transfer from West Virginia.
