 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky coach John Calipari says he disagrees with Bobby Knight's assessment that college basketball lacks integrity and that he is proof the game has a problem.
Calipari also said Friday he remains a ``big fan'' of the former Indiana and Texas Tech coach, but refused to get into a verbal war with Knight. Calipari even credited Knight for helping him perfect his ``Dribble Drive'' offense during a visit to Texas Tech while Calipari was coaching at Memphis.
Knight called out Calipari during a fundraiser for the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame on Thursday. Knight questioned why Calipari is still coaching even though two of his former programs have had NCAA troubles. Knight offered Calipari's continued employment as proof of college basketball's integrity problem.
