The Kentucky coach has become a near-polarizing figure in college sports. A master recruiter, who has had his coaching acumen questioned, is leading his team to its second national title game in his third year as coach. Calipari is known now as a conduit for players looking to go one-and-done, to make the jump from college to the NBA lottery. But his 2012-13 Wildcats are a team that struggled to jell early and now find themselves surprisingly in the place that everyone originally expected them to be—the final game of the Tournament. Maybe that’s why on Friday Calipari suggested we all change “one-and-done” to “succeed and proceed.”
The nation’s best teams square off tonight and you don’t want to miss it.
