Michael Kidd-Gilchrist leads "Breakfast Club"

For many of us of a certain generation "The Breakfast Club" was a John Hughes film about a group of high school students who are confined for Saturday detention and find that they shared more in common than they thought. For the current group of Wildcats "The Breakfast Club" is a time of camaraderie building as they lift, shoot and have a good time before breakfast.

Calipari's "La Familia" approach is rubbing off on the current group of Wildcats. A group of current Wildcats, led by Kidd-Gilchrist, comprise what has become known as the "Breakfast Club." This group of players get up early and workout together. They lift and get in extra shooting, to improve their games before breakfast. Not only are these sessions helping each player individually to become better, but they go a long way toward building the team concept that John Calipari wants.

The "Breakfast Club" originated with a single player, Kidd-Gilchrist. The first multi-player meeting of the "Breakfast Club" included Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, and Kyle Wiltjer. It grows from there.

With the publicity garnered by the "Breakfast Club" it is probably safe to assume that it will continue to grow when the Wildcats all arrive back on campus for their first practice this evening.
