When University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari gets tossed just two minutes into a hostile road game, Kenny Payne slides over to the head coach’s seat and leads the Wildcats to a 27 point beatdown upon South Carolina.
Payne reportedly told Kentucky guard Tyler Ulis, “You coach the offense, I’ll coach the defense.” Ulis scored 27 points and 12 assists.
Ulis is indeed one of the greatest guards in UK’s storied history.
A few minutes after the final horn, Coach Cal tweeted his approval (from the team bus out back?).
I have never been more proud of a team. They are now empowered. They've proven that they dont need me and I love it.
