John Calipari made sure his Kentucky team’s trip overseas wasn’t all about basketball.
The Wildcats’ men’s basketball squad, in the Bahamas for a preseason slate of games, participated in Samaritan’s Feet, a charity aimed at giving members of an underprivileged community shoes.
Members of Kentucky’s team spent the day helping children put on socks and shoes.
Calipari wanted to make sure the experience had a lasting effect on his young athletes.
“Many of the players I’m going to coach are going to come across fame and fortune. What do you do with it? Do you make your life about yourself and how much you can grab, or do you make your life about everybody else?” Calipari said.
Kentucky is the most talented team in college basketball. It’s nice to see that the country’s top team is just as good off the court as they are on it.
