LEXINGTON, Ky. —
Tuesday's close earned the Wildcats more of what they got on Sunday, when Calipari ran them hard in the morning before practicing in the afternoon. Though players aren't looking forward to 7 a.m. workouts and practices during the semester break, they seemed resigned to them and conceded that's what needed to get them to meet expectations of their coach and Big Blue Nation.
"We're ready to get in better shape," Wiltjer said. "We just want to do what Coach Cal wants us to do."
Clide Geffrard had 12 points and Tim Williams and Connor Miller 11 each for Samford.
Raijon Kelly scored 14 points for Samford (2-8), which didn't score its 10th point until 4:15 remained in the half.
