Kentucky sophomore Eric Bledsoe sat out the game against Hartford in an effort to give his ailing ankle the opportunity to heal after tweaking the injured ankle earlier in the week.
After the Hartford game Kentucky coach John Calipari reported, "(Bledsoe) is fine. He tweaked his ankle two days ago and finished a practice and was absolutely a monster. I mean, he didn't step off. The next day we went to practice in the morning and the trainer said, ‘You know what, I'm going hold him out.' I went up to him (Eric) and said, ‘If you need step out of the game then step out. I am fine if you don't play in this game.' He said, ‘Okay, I will. I want to get healthy.' That was his choice."
