Charging calls complicate homecoming for Poythress

Three charging calls complicated Kentucky freshman Alex Poythress’ homecoming Thursday night.
Poythress, who grew up in Cooksville, Tenn., fouled out of UK’s 60-58 victory at Vanderbilt.
He began the game with noticeable assertiveness. He finished with a busy stat line: seven points, six rebounds, four turnovers.
But UK Coach John Calipari noted a lack of aggressiveness at times. Vandy grabbed 20 offensive rebounds and won the boards, 42-37.
“You can’t let it happen,” Calipari said of gettable rebounds that eluded Poythress. “It’s unacceptable.”
Calipari suggested Poythress adopt an attitude of “I have to make it a point: I’m not getting outworked.”
