Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has invited new UK Coach John Calipari to be the guest of honor at a reception Wednesday at the Governor’s Mansion.
This will give the Calipari honeymoon a friends-in-high-places touch.
Meanwhile, North Carolina one-upped Kentucky on the political front. The UNC team went to the White House on Monday. The Tar Heels presented President Barack Obama with a jersey. To which, Obama said, “If someone could please present me with a jump shot. I need one of those.”
