ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas may have played for Duke, but that doesn’t mean he won’t mix it up from time to time with head coaches at other big-time basketball schools. Bilas, who is down in the Bahamas to call Kentucky’s “Big Blue Bahamas” tour for the network, recently took the time to speak to the Wildcats’ players about what they can accomplish this season.
Bilas, who mentions that UK has the ability to be “special” this year, also dives into another topic that coach John Calipari has been harping on recently – playing time. He makes it clear to the players that in order to be successful, they need to focus on what they do with the minutes they’re given, not just worry about the number they’re given. Here’s the clip, via Kentucky. It’s vintage Jay Bilas.
