NEW ORLEANS — Before his confetti-flecked suit gets
back from the cleaners, John Calipari will be on the road.
Such is life for a coach who recruits all that NBA-ready
talent — especially when those players get in the habit of
bringing championships back to their ol’ Kentucky home.
Cal’s latest group of one-and-doners doesn’t have much

the best of Kentucky’s talented freshmen, Anthony Davis,
the Wildcats defeated Kansas 67-59 on Monday night to win
their eighth national title, and first since 1998.
“What I’m hoping is there are six first-rounders on this
team,” Calipari said. “I’m fine with that. That’s why I’ve got

back-to-back 3-pointers midway through the second half
