Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Team: 3.12 GPA in the Spring

John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcat basketball team posted a 3.12 grade point average in the Spring semester – you know, the semester when none of the players are supposed to be trying because of March Madness and the fact that they’re all NBA-bound.

Noting that the UK team’s GPA included five players who entered this year’s NBA Draft, Calipari said in a statement released Friday that “all this stuff bitter old men say that they don’t go to class, it’s not true.”

So Calipari says you can take the 3.12 GPA and shove it in your “One-and-Done” debate. And yes, he’s looking at you, Bob Knight. [Herald Leader]
