While Coach Cal gets the nod by voters, the man who recently beat him fell short of receiving that honor…Sorry Bo!
Nowadays, a tough loss can translate into one of the biggest wins of your accomplished career. You say this about Kentucky Wildcats basketball coach John Calipari.
Days after his squad failed to achieve an undefeated season, Coach Cal received enough votes to be a part of the Class of 2015 enshrinement into the Basketball Hall Of Fame. John and ten other hoop legends are up for induction to the hall of fame. Coach Calipari has been nothing short of great as he was able to prove basketball fans that no matter where he ends up, he will produce a winning program. The 56 year old veteran has made six Final Four appearances with three different programs. John was able to comprised a overall record of 593-174. His only national championship he has under his resume came in 2012 with the WIldcats organization.
Joining John for their induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame are Spencer Haywood, Lisa Leslie, Dikembe Mutombo, Jojo White, Louis Dampier, Dick Bavetta, Tom Heinsohn, Lindsey Gaze and John Issacs. The announcement of the official class was released to the public as early as Monday afternoon. Major congratulations goes out to the hardest working man in college basketball as he continues to dominate the recruiting class year after year while making more history to add on the legendary legacy he is leaving on the sport of basketball.
