Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari is trying his best not to overlook the Louisville Cardinals.

During a press conference on Friday, Coach Cal said Kenny Payne is doing a "hell of a job" with the Cardinals program. He also said the team has been in "every game" they've played this season.

Louisville is 2-11 on the year and has been blown out on multiple occasions.

"This is a game that I imagine they're coming in expecting to win," he said.

Take a look at Coach Cal's full comments here: 

After starting off the season with three one-point, home losses against non-conference opponents, Louisville continued to struggle in a big way. They've lost seven games by double-digits — not exactly putting up a fight in "every game."

Coach Cal and Kentucky aren't looking great either. The Wildcats have dropped two of their last three games, including a loss to unranked Missouri on Wednesday.

Tomorrow's Kentucky-Louisville game will tipoff at noon ET in Rupp Arena.
