John Calipari and the Kentucky men’s basketball team were made available to the media for interviews at Kentucky Media Day on Tuesday.
While the media asked most of the questions, Ellen Calipari had a microphone of her own for interviews.
UK Athletics will publish a lot of content from Ellen’s interviews but I was able to get the following exchange between her and freshman wing Johnny Juzang.
Juzang is a long way from his Los Angeles (CA) home but he feels comfortable in Lexington.
It’s a short video but you can see the impact Ellen has on the Kentucky basketball program. For a guy like Juzang, she’s the mother in Lexington.
Ellen Calipari’s impact on Kentucky basketball is large. For a guy like Johnny Juzang, who is far from home, she’s the mother in Lexington. pic.twitter.com/xYHW5t4Dy7
