Kentucky vs Gonzaga Preview

After trying to schedule a match-up between their two teams in 2021, the Kentucky Wildcats and Gonzaga Bulldogs are facing off early in the 2022-2023 season. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses. The Wildcats sit at 3-1 after being upset in double overtime by Michigan State on November 15, one day before Gonzaga lost big to Texas on the road.

According to On 3, Kentucky head coach John Calipari told a radio call-in show in March 2021 that he and Gonzaga head coach Mark Few were trying to secretly secure a midseason matchup between their programs that year, but they couldn’t make it happen.

“The game that I tried to get and we almost got done was Gonzaga,” Calipari said. “We were going to shove Gonzaga into the middle of our schedule. Mark Few and I talked — I didn’t say I was going to do this publicly, but I thought it would help them and help us. And our kids were absolutely ecstatic. They wanted to do it, we just couldn’t pull it off.”

In his post-game press conference after the loss to Michigan State, Calipari said that they were not prepared for that game as well as they could have been.

“We just played a really good team,” said Calipari, adding that he told Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo “you were more prepared to finish a game off than we were.”

“We missed free throws where we could’ve separated,” said Calipari, adding, “We did enough to win the game, but we were discombobulated at times … we just haven’t practiced enough together … give them credit, they did what they had to. They made like every free throw and we come down one out of two, one out of two and hard to win a game that way.”

He added that he told his players, “We got a good team. You play veteran teams — like we got games coming up against really good, veteran kind of teams — you gotta finish people off. That means make free throws, that means total execution … so now we go forward.”

Calipari also said that their schedule is really tough this year, but that’s what he prefers because that’s how you find out what your team is made of.

“These are the games you want to play. Let’s find out who we are. Our schedule is ridiculous, but isn’t that who you wanna play, guys? And they’ll say yeah. So let’s go out and regroup,” said the head coach.
