Calipari on Cats Taking On Societal Issues

During Thursday's annual UK Basketball Media Day, John Calipari was asked how he felt about his players taking on societal issues and protests in light of the current climate in the United States.

Calipari said he will always encourage his players to be socially aware and active if they feel strong enough about the cause, but also suggests the Cats need to be fully educated about the issue and willing to take criticism that may come along with it. He used Kentucky native and former heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali as an example.
