Cal dismisses edge Vandy gains playing 2nd game in 3 days

Kentucky Coach John Calipari took turning a negative into a positive to a ridiculous extreme when asked about Vanderbilt’s difficult chore on Saturday.

The Commodores will be playing their second game within a 40-hour period when they face Kentucky Saturday afternoon. Vandy plays Alabama Thursday night beginning at 9 p.m EST.

Calipari downplayed the advantage this gave Vanderbilt.

No, no. What advantage does Kentucky gain since the Cats will have three full days off before facing Vandy?

“We took yesterday off,” Calipari said in trying to downplay the suggestion of a scheduling advantage. “Plus, we’ve got to travel. So it’s all the same.”
