John Calipari and Tom Izzo were together at an event to fight cancer at the Oakland Hills Country Club on Monday. 

During the event, put together by Oakland coach Greg Kampe, the Kentucky and Michigan State coach spoke with reporters. Recruiting came up. Calipari, who's notorious at this point for being the best recruiter in the country, said Izzo has beaten him for prospects "way more than I've beaten him." Izzo reacted appropriately.

Perhaps Izzo was beating out Calipari for recruits when the Kentucky coach was at Memphis, but it seems pretty crazy for him to say Izzo's beaten him "way more than I've beaten him."
