Quotable

John Calipari and Bo Ryan had an entertaining exchange about communicating to players to end their news conference Thursday.

Calipari: “When you tell the truth, it’s like, ‘What was the lie?’ ...

Calipari turned to Ryan “Am I right?”

Ryan: “I always ask them … have I ever lied to you? They always say no.”

Calipari, laughing: “But, please, this time, Coach, lie to me.”
