Arkansas had a bad night against Kentucky, losing to John Calipari in Fayetteville 80-66 for the first time. Apparently Razorbacks’ coach Mike Anderson was pissed enough about something to blow by John Calipari in the handshake line after the game.
After the game, Calipari and Anderson addressed the handshake:
“It’s fine,” Calipari said. “He and I talked after. He apologized and I said, ‘If I said anything to make you mad, I apologize. I say all kinds of stuff.’ So, probably something I did say and he deserved to react the way he did, and we’re fine.”
Anderson was also asked about it, and he too acted as though it was nothing and they apologized for it.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, we did,” Anderson said. “I apologized, yeah, we did.”
This is the second time this month we’ve seen coaches skip out on the post-game handshakes. Surely the sportsmanship crowd doesn’t love this type of behavior, but who cares about handshakes and sportsmanship?
