Kentucky’s John Calipari snaps back at NCAA Tournament doubters after crushing Auburn

Kentucky has regained its swagger. The Wildcats thrashed Auburn 86-54 on Saturday with 22 points and 17 rebounds. Oscar Chibwe and 19 points, nine assists and four steals from Cason Wallace.

The star duo from Kentucky had a lot of help. Antonio Reeves scored 18 of 21 points in the second half, and Jacob Toppin made the second consecutive double-double (13 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists). Kentucky (20-9 overall, 11-5 in SEC play) is well into the NCAA Tournament Predictions.

“People tried to talk us out of the NCAA Tournament,” the Kentucky coach said. John Calipari said. “They tried. They ran out. They ran out. They’re terrible. They’re like that. You play yourself or play yourself. And it really never ends when you have an auto bet tournament. So everyone in our league still has a chance.” but I just kept telling them you can’t – what they say doesn’t affect what we’re going to do. And again, I always say, my opinion or hope? They give you their opinion or hope? They seem to know what it is.”
