VIDEO: Kentucky coach John Calipari says Wildcats' Alex Poythress still not 100%

Kentucky coach John Calipari says the Wildcats need the "beast" version of Alex Poythress to return if the Big Blue is to accomplish its goals this season. After UK's exhibition opener Monday night against Ottawa, Calipari noted that Poythress is about "80 percent" coming off knee surgery.

Poythress played 17 minutes in UK's 117-58 win over Ottawa. He scored eight points, grabbed six rebounds and blocked two shots, but Calipari could tell that his senior forward was still lagging behind his teammates.
