Kentucky coach John Calipari isn't interested in talking revenge. Avenging a 73-72 loss to Indiana would be an easy motivational tool for Calipari this week as the top-seeded Wildcats prepare for Friday night's East Region showdown against the Hoosiers at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga. It's a matchup Big Blue Nation has been yearning for since Christian Watford sank at 3-pointer at the buzzer on Dec. 10 in Bloomington, that bounced Kentucky from...
