For Joker Phillips, there’s nothing wrong with a working vacation.
The Kentucky head coach will be at Danville’s Millennium Park on Monday for a three-hour clinic for youngsters entering their eighth-grade year or below even though the camp date falls during his normal vacation — as do stops he’s made in three other cities.
“This is our off time, but we wanted to get our message out across the state and this is a great way to do it,” said Phillips. “This is part of what ‘Operation Win’ is. We want to get out in the community and help let all these communities embrace us.
“A lot of people can’t get to Lexington to see what is happening. That’s especially true for kids. We want people to feel what we are all about and let everyone get a feel for what we are doing.”
