"You've got to prove over a period of time you will do what you need to do. If you go two weeks and drop the ball, I am not playing you because you did not do what I asked," Calipari said.
The coach also said there was no reason he had to tell whether Liggins was merely in his doghouse or being disciplined for another matter.
"It is no one's business. My job is to get guys better and get them to change," the UK coach said.
"If you do the same thing over and over and think you will get a different result, that is insanity."
